You might have the most compelling vision for your organization, but if you can't get it out of your head and get others to see it and believe in it, it might as well not even exist.

Here are 5 ways to bring your strategy to life:

  1. Write it down

    Put the strategy on a single piece of paper. Let it serve as a strategic framework from which all leaders and employees operate.
  2. Share it

    Share the strategic framework and ensure your leaders are aligned. Give leaders the context behind the strategy so they understand how you got there. Ask them to make the strategy relevant for their teams.
  3. Use it consistently

    Use the strategic framework consistently in your communications with employees. That way, it becomes familiar to employees and they see what’s happening and how it ties to the strategy. They’ll know what’s important when they see and hear it from multiple sources.
  4. Update and communicate

    As your thinking evolves about the strategy (quarterly, annually, etc.), update your framework and communicate regularly so employees are in the loop and understand the reasons behind decisions.
  5. Celebrate

    Celebrate “wins,” always connecting back to and reinforcing the core elements of the strategy.

In what ways do you bring your strategy to life?
