Importance of Values

-Their opinions count at work
-Their colleagues are committed to quality work
Employees come first, then your clients – because your employees are the ones serving your clients, according to Richard Branson, Virgin Mobile. By appreciating skills and values of employees, they should be highly motivated and engaged in your workplace.
The Strategic Compass
Creating an Effective Strategy:
1. i) Create your Strategy by determining where you came from and where you want to go
ii) Vision has to be practiced every day to be brought to life
iii) Vision helps organizations move forward ONLY when every member of the organization understands the vision
2. Think 3: Ensure you have 3 strategies or less. For example; Always incorporate the culture of the organization
i) Fix a weakness
ii) Maintain and develop a strength
iii) Enter a new market
By creating 3 strategies or less, you are 84% likely to achieve. For more than 3 strategies, you are 17% likely to achieve.
