Leading With Vision: Despite Challenges, Inspiration to Keep Going!

Valeri Bocage- CEO Powerful Women International Connections

One of the most important objectives, is keeping a shared vision at the forefront. Many companies make changes, and go through challenges. However, if the company’s vision is kept at the forefront, employees will persevere through difficult situations.

I know of a company that does transformation work. It is one of the largest companies globally. Each meeting (or program) begins with reading together the vision and mission statements. This sets the tone, and brings everyone together in alignment. Reading the words aloud, inspires everyone involved.

Focusing on the mission and vision brings unity and close cohesiveness. When things change, or a challenge arises, a shared vision helps team members realign with the company’s initial purpose.

 Fifteen tips for finding inspiration during changes or challenging times:

  1. Read your vision and mission statements out loud.
  2. Ask if everyone understands the vision and mission.
  3. Seek feedback and clarification.
  4. Reflect on why you started, or joined the company.
  5. Remember your original joy.
  6. Perceive the challenge before you. Find a resolution that benefits all.
  7. Look at how the situation is advantageous.
  8. Create a new plan of action.
  9. Establish a unified, shared goal.
  10. Remove any negative doubt.

Fifteen tips for finding inspiration during changes or challenging times (continued):

  1. Align everyone with the same intended purpose.
  2. Ensure each person is on the same page.
  3. Work together as a team.
  4. Look for solutions together.
  5. Make sure to give back to a cause, or help within the community.

Rereading your vision will re-inspire your motivation.

If the vision and mission no longer feel right, and they are failing to inspire, then it is time to make changes. 

As a business owner, I am constantly inspired by our vision and mission. 

Working with women humanitarians, and watching them change lives, is truly rewarding.
