Workplace transition requires those involved (all stakeholders) are clear about the story and directives aligned and assigned to the organization of work. Herein, is the value of a vision statement - a statement that highlights the major outcomes of the work together. 

In our defintion - Vision is an internal statement (whereas Mission statement is an external statement). We use Vision because it suggests what we ask the stakeholders to see about the strategic horizontal line. 

This article is the third of 10 exploring Workplace Transition (Workplace Experience - #WPT, #WPX) ... where in workplace terms "transition (internal) is about the organization response to change (external) - knowing "change surrounds every challenge" (Dr. Linda Hines). Herein challenge is about the hindering and helping complementarity of challenges.

Connect Shared Vision with Story & Directives

The Vision statement you co-create is a shared statement of intention - it's about the horizon line from which you're collectly working. 

It emcompasses the major internal story highlighting the pathway to the actualization of the external (brand-marketing) story through the organization of work.  

Also, the statement highlights the broad directives anticipated-required for the wholistic organization of work - to ensure a whole system, whole person approach to work.

Identify the Senior Executive Intention for the Organization of Employee Work: ever mindful of the customer’s requirements (must have) & requests (like to have)

The Senior Executive Intention for the Organization of Work is a clear and concise collective statement of the C-Suite commitment to eco-ethically manage and lead the work to which all others can hold them accountable. 

Issuance of this statement means the C-Suite has met - agreed upon - their individual commitments to the way forward and have agreed a summary of those commitments is communicated to the employees and can be made available to customers who ask.

Convey the Story in the Words of Those Involved

Words matter! Therefore, the words in the Vision statement - the vision story - the directives - must reflect the words of those involved. 

And, where possible include the words of the customers - especially those of your community before your tribe. Your tribe is involved, your community wavers about involvement. 

Outline the Strategic Directives Associated with the Vision Story 

As you move into performance reviews (achievement) and production assessment (accomplishment) include

(a)  2 or 3 action_outcome statements - in the performance review process - particular to the Strategic Directives and Vision Story like

  1. discuss how the strategic direction organizes your work  
  2. discuss how your performance contributes to the strategic direction 

... and in doing so, you celebrate individual achievements ... that in turn, involve-evolve individual commitment 

(b) in all staff meetings assign time to facilitate a quick review of the Strategic Directives and Vision Story

  1. discuss your win-grow-learn stories
  2. list hindering elements for dialogue in another meeting (unless you're in the meeting dealing with hindering elements))smiles

... and in doing so, the dialogue and ensuing actions celebrate the shared accomplishments ... that in turn infuse-enthuse group-team-gream alignment with the Vision Story

Of importance ... words matter!
