The Big Shift
4 Reasons Why you should create a Strategic Vision
The S.C.A.L.E Formula – Step #1: Put the right strategic vision in place. Just like the thousands of entrepreneurs that I have worked with, you need to understand how your strategic vision benefits your business. A strategic vision is nothing without understanding why. Here are 4 reasons why you should create a strategic vision.
- For Confidence & Clarity.
Can we agree? In order to put the right strategic vision in place, you need confidence in your vision and clarity in your strategy. It’s a bare necessity. If you want to answer the question – how does your strategic vision benefit your business – then you have to examine your intention.
Achieving confidence and attaining clarity in your intention is the #1 reason why you should create a strategic vision. If you align your intention with every action and every outcome, then the strategy and vision will not only take care of itself, but doors will open to get there. Take a step towards the big shift! Align your intentions every month, every quarter and every year with strategic planning sessions.
If you do, then you will give leaders context for reaching goals and information to spread the word. Your strategic vision benefits your business if it is greater than a one-time event, and more than a set-it-and-forget-it activity. Take it to the next level, and transform chaos into confidence and clarity. Because, after all, we all know that it is 20% about activities and 80% about strategic progress.
- For Action & Execution.
Start with the day-to-day. When you are scaling your business, you have to break it down. My S.C.A.L.E. Formula takes the big picture and breaks down the big shift into steps. And, more often than not, the next step is daily action and daily execution. Reason #2 for why you should create a strategic vision is so you can make your strategic vision a reality every day.
Everything on your to-do list should be a step towards putting the right strategic vision in place, whether big or small. That is the only way that you will see results! How does your strategic vision benefit your business? By translating your strategic vision into daily action and daily execution, so you avoid the vicious cycle of reactive activities. Turn inactivity into action!
Align the day-to-day reality of your strategic vision with your team. That means aligning your strategic vision with their job description. Align the daily execution of projects with your strategic vision for your business. And, that means picking the Top 3 priorities to make the big shift happen. Priorities give your team confidence in their contributions, and it provides clarity in shaping your strategic vision for the future.
- For Assessment & Teamwork.
Now that you have the right strategy in place, and your daily focus is clear, it is time to lay the groundwork for high performance. I do not want you to fall into the trap of complacency on your road to the big shift from entrepreneur to 7-figure enterprise! The 3rd reason why you should create a strategic vision is be empowered to look at your business holistically.
As a whole, your business needs to run like a well-oiled machine. The individual parts need to add up to the whole – like a race car on the road to exponential success. If you are still wondering how does your strategic vision benefit your business, then your next step is to assess your progress. That is the only way to improve teamwork and switch gears into high performance. Get ready to transform stagnation into progress!
It is only natural that there will be necessary checkpoints along the way to measure progress. Being able to assess progress is the key to long-term success from top to bottom, from CEO to teamwork. Check-in on the priorities set for the previous month. Celebrate the wins, make adjustments for the losses and close the gap. Don’t forget to look at why certain factors played into your wins and losses, stagnation and progress.
