Live strong – living up to the strategy
Are your employees living up to the strategy of the company? If not – they are not alone. Only 5% of employees understand the company’s strategy and hence, they are not able to live up to the strategy.
I think there are some issues that companies need to overcome in order to get their employees more involved –
- Create a common language of Strategy between the management and the workforce
- Establish processes and meeting opportunities for strategy discussions
- Appreciate workers’ involvement. Let them challenge you as a manager and let them “pull the strategy” (instead of you trying to push the strategy on them)
- Recognize their inputs
