Leadership - How To Turn The Vision Into A Reality
Be clear about where you are now. Audit your strengths and areas for development
Where do you want to be?
What needs to be done to eliminate the gap between your dream and the reality?
Prioritize - Look for quick wins, consider those things which will have maximum long term impact. Build solid foundations, think of sustainability!
Set challenging but realistic targets. Aim high.
Communicate the vision, and keep doing so. Ensure that all stake holders understand and subscribe to the vision.
Who do you need to involve? How will you ensure they sign up to and stay committed to the vision?
Think about the language you use - sound positive, if others think you are confident it can be achieved they will gain confidence too. Develop a "Can do" mentality within the staff. For every problem there is a solution, encourage others to see themselves as problem solvers not problem givers.
Create clear lines of communication which operate at every level and in all directions.
Break each priority down into small achievable steps, involve the team.
Who needs to do what - by when? Set a timetable
Identify the roles and responsibilities for all staff; ensure that staff take ownership without creating a "jobs worth" approach.
Ensure that people are appropriately trained and that training is updated.
Build in the monitoring and review process from the start so you can evaluate performance and be prepared to adjust as necessary. (By creating a culture of development rather than blame huge potential will be released.)
Celebrate success; remember to thank people for their contribution. The best leaders give credit to the team.
Develop professional honesty within the staff, constructive feed back can be invaluable.
