"Nothing will divert me from my purpose."
― Abraham Lincoln
We come together in an organisation to achieve a shared goal. Being clear about that shared purpose is the cornerstone of effectiveness, alignment, trust and belonging.
Those in positions of authority have a particular responsibility to frame and communicate shared purpose clearly and effectively. It is what forms the connective tissue between all of the stakeholders in an organisation and builds resilient culture.
This is one of the most fun aspects of leadership, and our frameworks for clarifying a shared purpose will draw on the existing strengths of your leadership team.
"On good teams coaches hold players accountable, on great teams players hold players accountable." ― Joe Dumars
Joining together with others in a shared effort requires a collective commitment to behave in ways that optimise that endeavour. Some behaviours alienate others or diminish collective effectiveness, and others build cultures of trust and shared momentum.
This is the most powerful role of values in an organisation – to codify and commit to behaviours that enhance the capacity to secure the purpose. Agreeing on the non-negotiables is an essential precondition to including diverse contributions.
Our approach to defining values emphasises building a consensus and accountability for shared behaviours.
