High performing organisations have a strong and compelling vision that people find personally meaningful and feel connected to. The vision is the inspirational and aspirational future for the organisation, written succinctly and developed in a way that is easy for everyone in the organisation to remember and relate to. High performing organisations also describe their mission – what they are there to do, for whom, and how they go about doing it. It positions them well in the marketplace and with their stakeholders.
Creating a performance culture means identifying and living by a set of core values, the deeply held principles, ideals or beliefs that people use as the basis for making decisions. Values are evident in an organisation’s culture – “the way we do things around here” show what really matters at the end of the day. Revisiting and confirming these core values provides everyone in the organisation with a clear foundation for their decisions, their behaviours and their attitudes. Organisations that operate by their deeply held core values show integrity, which builds trust among staff and customers alike.
