Once a PURPOSE and VALUES have been set, in order for them to become operative, people have to buy in. Getting people on board is the real challenge – and payoff.
Many companies have great plans – but too often, they are locked in a drawer. To get buy-in the CEO:
- Talks directly to people, not just to the top management team
- Listens to all employees’ points of view
- Sells (continuously) the new company direction
- Continue to communicate with employees and share progress
This takes continual effort and events initiated by the CEO. Noble Advisors can help the CEO think this through to do the things that will get people on board – and keep them there.
“You helped managers focus on their key issues as a team rather versus in terms of their parochial interests. You helped them understand the views of others. You drew out of them commitment to a common vision.”
