GET BUY-IN TO YOUR VISION

So your people are aligned with your strategy

WE HELP LEADERS CREATE ALIGNMENT

The key to organisational alignment is employee buy-in. In order to get buy-in you need to have something to buy into.  

That means having a clear view of who you are and what you stand for as a company, a clear view of the behaviours you want in your organisation, and being able to communicate, educate, and reinforce that across your company to make it happen.

THE FIVE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN
ALIGNED ORGANISATION

There are five distinct characteristics that all fully aligned organisations exhibit.
Our process is designed to help you achieve and sustain all five. 

1. Clarity of purpose
A clear reason for being

A crystal-clear view of why the organisation exists, beyond the pursuit of profit. This clarity is fundamental to creating a strong sense of meaning, setting direction and ensuring everyone is on the same page.

2. Joint attention
A shared understanding of what’s important

Everyone has a thorough understanding of organisational goals, and why they are worth pursuing. There is also a common understanding of the work that matters and why it matters.

3. Shared intentionality
A collaborative pursuit of common goals

There’s a clear connection between individual roles and the organisation’s goals. Employees are focused on creating value and moving the organisation forward over busyness.

4. Cultural currency
A shared system of meaning

There’s a strong cultural identity, with common language, symbolism and stories ensuring individuals feel personally connected to the organisation. Every employee feels as though they are part of something bigger than themselves.

5. Common fate
A belief that everyone is in it together

Everyone feels mutually or reciprocally implicated in the success of the organisation. People are empowered at every level of the organisation and trusted to act in its best interests.

“Along with the $1.4b acquisition of

MLC, our ‘ideology’ was one of the most

pivotal things we did in 2020.”

– Renato Mota, CEO IOOF
