~ Tamara Stopford – Focus HR Leadership & Engagement Consultant

Over my years in the workforce, I have been so fortunate to work for large corporate businesses, world recognised chains, not-for-profit organisations, and local small businesses.

One of my biggest sources of satisfaction as an employee has come from getting to know and understand why a business does what it does. What is their direction, their vision? I could then decide if that vision aligns with my personal values. Is it something I could get on board with? Do I feel like I belong? Does it make me proud to be a part of? And above all, do I want to be part of the journey to help the business achieve success?

I didn’t realise how important this was to me until I worked for a business that didn’t share their vision. There was a loose idea of what the business wanted to achieve, but there was no real common purpose.  There was no plan, and no prioritisation of organisational goals. The goal was just to get through each day. For me, that resulted in low workplace satisfaction – there was nothing to buy into.

“Our vision is only actionable if we share it.  Without sharing, it’s just a figment of our imagination’’ – Simon Sinek 

A business leader is not the only person who should know or solely be responsible for their business’ vision. Everyone plays a part.
