Recently on the blog, we talked about the seeds of a strategic plan, which includes establishing a shared vision for your firm and team, as well as a mission that brings your vision to fruition. Now it’s time to create the structure of your plan — which is sometimes easier said than done.
Trust is the foundation of great execution. Without it, every communication, interaction, strategy, and decision carries a hidden tax, compounding the cost and time it takes to get things done. An environment of trust, on the other hand, is a performance multiplier, one that can turn your team into an executing machine.
Think of the long-term growth of your firm and team. To achieve your strategic goals, you need top performers and an environment that fuels the progress you need to succeed. None of that success is possible, however, without a strong foundation — the base of your totem pole. And that starts with your own, personal vision.
