Leadership, Vision and Communication

A leader’s job is to align the organization around a clear and inspiring vision that motivates teams, drive performance and creates enduring value

Poor vision, tunnel vision, vision that is fickle, a non-existent vision or an inability by leadership to communicate their vision throughout the organisation is the reason why many organisations do not achieve extraordinary success.

Leadership

Extraordinary leaders demonstrate:

  • Clarity of vision
  • Integrity and moral compass
  • Courage and humility
  • Decisiveness
  • Creativity and innovation
  • Adaptability and agility
  • Accountability
  • Communication capacity
  • Inspiration
  • Emotional mastery

An extraordinary leader is first and foremost an extraordinary human being – someone who is willing and able to overcome their human constraints and rise to excellence at work, at home and in their community – a person with a passion to make our world a better place for all of society, or at least, some portion of it.

Zone Culture’s proprietary tools and methodology provide leaders with the skills they need to overcome human constraints and expand their emotional mastery both at work and in life.

 

Why the Best Leader Make Love the Top Priority

 

Vision

The most important thing that an organisation must have is a great vision that all employees can get inspired about, rally around and enthusiastically make happen

Some companies suffer from linear thinking, where their past determines their future. Thinking and doing is then stuck in old patterns, in the mistaken belief that this will minimise risk.

For these companies, almost all the innovation that takes place is incremental, focused primarily on solving current problems. Not much attention is given to leaps in innovation based on possibility brought on by new technological developments, forecasting clients’ future needs and out-of-the-box, spontaneous creativity.

For staff it is business as usual, doing the same old thing. For the company, it is at risk of becoming irrelevant and losing market share or influence, to new, agile competitors.

In this fourth industrial revolution, only companies with extraordinary vision and leaps in innovation will succeed.

To envision a great future for your organisation and to keep this vision alive everyday, everyone in your company has to be working with enduring harmony and headed in the same direction.

Zone Culture will provide the necessary human skills and training necessary to work cohesively and collaboratively to keep the fire burning through the day, everyday.

 

Communication

The organisational vision needs to be part of the day-to-day communication between leaders and their teams

If staff feel like they are left out of the information loop about where the organisation is heading, how the organisation is doing, what impact individuals and departments are having on the achievement of the vision, then they will disengage and stop participating enthusiastically.

It is also critical to realise that communication goes way beyond the spoken or printed word. How human beings respond to information is primarily based on their conditioning, which dictates how they feel when they process the information they are given.

So, not only do you need to provide prompt information and feedback, you also need to ensure your people are in the right mental and emotional state to process the information and feedback they are getting.

Here are symptoms of communication that have not worked:

  • Staff lack knowledge about what is happening – feel like mushrooms
  • Defensiveness – withdrawal, passive aggressive behaviour
  • Conflicting information – raising doubts
  • Lack of clarity about direction or what to do next
  • Departments moving in different directions, with differing priorities
  • No resolution of issues
  • A standoff situation – lose lose
  • Lack of motivation
  • Lack of collaboration and teamwork
  • Hiding bad news and blaming others for things going wrong
  • Disempowered staff
  • Disengaged, non-participating staff
