It is so important that everyone in your business is aiming for the same goals. Think of a sports team... if the players are unclear where the goals are or if some players are aiming for the wrong goals, you will lose the game. This is the same in business.
Here are 5 steps to get goal congruence in your business...
1. Firstly, you need to define clear goals that you are aiming to achieve in your business in the next 12 months AND in the next 5 years.
2.Then you need to ensure that everyone in the business knows about these goals (especially the parts of the goal that pertain to them), understand them and knows why you have set them for the business or for their department. Encourage people to add their opinion.
3.It is then important that everyone understands how they can help the company achieve the goals. They need to fully understand the unique part that they play. As a group, put together a plan to achieve the goals and allocate responsibility of who is going to do what.
4. Next, you need to explain how everyone will benefit when the company achieves its goals.
5.Follow the plan and continually remind everyone in your business about the goals - at the daily, weekly and monthly meetings.
