Seeing the big picture.
You need to connect the dots for others. You cannot expect them to see the vision you have if this has not been articulated clearly.
Random pieces of work or segmented tasks do not give others the same sense of completion and purpose as those acts that enable a person to see the role they play and the end result achieved.
While it may be difficult for everyone to be involved at every step of the way, enabling others to see how their contribution adds up, makes a big difference.
A higher purpose.
We want to do good work. We want to be involved in meaningful causes because work gives meaning to our day.
It is important that we see the greater value that an organisation we work for, brings to the table.
We need clarity.
Of our role.
Of how we are expected to work.
Of how we are expected to collaborate and create.
Of what we are expected to bring about.
We want to see a seamless transition between what an organisation we work for says it does and what it actually does.
We want to see an organisation we work for, take responsibility for the right things, and speak up at the right time.
We want to hear an organisation we work for, assume ownership of their actions, rather than hide behind the corporate veil.
This puts truth front and centre.
This enhances an organisation’s credibility.
This supports and ratifies the decisions we make every day.
