Vision Alignment

Align Your Organization’s Core Values, Mission and Vision
with Its Everyday Operations and Practices

Is your leadership primarily about where you are going, or what you are leaving behind? If your answer is the latter and you would like to build a sustainable organization, come to this workshop. What do you want to be remembered for? What makes you, and the organization, program or department you lead, distinct? How can you build loyalty and motivation among your employees toward a common purpose, something greater than any of you? If you were reading an article describing your nonprofit five years from now, what would you want it to say? What would you not want it to say?

In this session, you will learn how to first identify your core values and vision, and then how to align your core values with the way you work from day-to-day. You will also learn how to align the core values of your organization with its everyday practices – including its hiring policies, structure, financial management and organizational strategy. These are the skills that will enable you to build an organization that is sustainable and can weather changes in the external environment.

This session will challenge many popular notions of leadership and will help you to refine your own definition of what it truly takes to build a lasting initiative from the ground up.

Session Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to:
  • 1 Make better hiring decisions as your organization hires more staff who ‘fit’ with the culture, vision and core values
    of the organization.
  • 2 Develop executive staff who try less to be ‘front-stage stars’ and instead become ‘back-stage architects’ and help you build a sustainable organization.
  • 3 Discern streamlined organizational procedures and processes that eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy.
  • 4 Create improved budgeting and financial accounting procedures that are aligned with organizational goals.
  • 5 Create a more cohesive team that identifies with the clearly defined vision, goals and objectives of your organization.
