Many small business owners are so confident in their vision and so passionate about what they are doing in the business that they are shocked to learn that not everyone in the company shares their vision. This should be a wake up call for business owners who assume that everyone is working towards the same goals. Business coaches, or EOS Implementers™, teach leadership teams that it’s their responsibility to share their V/TO™ and inspire their people with a compelling vision. You may find that when you are sharing your vision, not everyone on the team feels the same way, and that’s ok! Those who understand your vision and who are fully committed to it will be working towards the shared goals of the business every day and their actions will speak for themselves.
It’s not uncommon to have a few people who don’t agree with the direction you are pursuing and who don’t value the same goals. Those who don’t share your vision will stick out like a sore thumb, and they will often leave before you have to let them go because they are unhappy in their jobs and aren’t suited for them. For those who don’t leave and yet who are clearly not in the right seats, leadership teams should free them up to pursue their passions elsewhere. It’s the only way to move forward with the business and it is mutually beneficial to you and to those who are asked to leave.
Leadership teams reach their full potential when everyone is on the same page and when everyone in the organization shares the same vision, genuinely wants to be a part of it and puts that passion for the business into action on a daily basis. Once you have achieved this, you will start to gain traction on your business.
