The need to select projects, activities and suggestions that aligns with your mission and vision

Is every project, activity, or suggestion brought to you right for implementation? Is it right to reject projects, activities or suggestions that don’t align with you organisation’s mission and vision? Can you turn down funds that tend to lead you away from your mission and vision? What should you do when suggestions don't align with your mission and vision? Here is a simple advice to all those questions....

So many times we tend to think that turning down a project that doesn’t align with our mission and vision is wrong, and since we need funds, whenever someone suggests something we take it even when we perfectly know that it doesn’t align with our mission and vision.

As the founder or the CEO of an organisation it is your duty to ensure that everything your organisation is doing or tends to do is aligned with its vision and mission. You are the one to know where the organisation is heading; no one sees that better than you do, and it should be your prior goal to help those who work with you see the vision too.

People working for you need to know why the organisation you’ve started exists; they need to see the big picture, they need to know what the primary purpose is. Having a clear vision and communicating that vision to employees, making it part of their day-to-day activities, helps employees see and understand the impact of their work. Your organisation will become successful only when those who you work with understand its mission and vision, and are able to align them with every activity they carry out.

People within or outside your organisation will come up with so many projects and suggestions, and as the founder/CEO you need to act as a funnel or a cipher, selecting the right projects/suggestions and leaving out those which don’t align with your organisation’s mission and vision. No matter how perfect the project or suggestion might seem or sound, it should be clear that not every project or suggestion is right for your organisation unless it aligns with your organisations mission and vision.

Times will come when you need to reject a project/suggestion proposed to you, when this happens, do it in a constituent manner, ensuring that those people understands why their project/suggestion was reject. Show them what your organisations mission and vision requires. Whether people are working within or outside your organisation, they should understand that every project/suggestion brought to you as the founder/CEO has to align with the organisations vision and mission. Whether it has to do with a purchase of a new technology or employing a new candidate, all activities suggested should align with the organisation’s mission and vision.

So, as a founder/CEO of any community project/organisation/business, my advice to you today is to ensure that every new project/activity/suggestion undertaken or brought to you by anyone should always be verified if it supports your mission and vision. Check if it enables you to reach your destination, keep everything you do focused on the mission and vision of your organisation.

As the founder/CEO of an organisation, you need to select, activities and suggestions that aligns with your mission and vision. Be a critical thinker, don't just be judgmental.

I hope this advice inspires in making the right choices. You can learn more on this matters by visiting the SOCIAL SECTOR DEVELOPMENT CATEGORY and the BUSINESS TIPS CATEGORY
