Organizational Alignment

True alignment changes the way team members view their actions; they embrace team decisions and organizational actions as if they were their own.

Organizational alignment is about empowering employees to make decisions that honor the organization’s values and achieve the organization’s goals. A key component of alignment is translating an organization's core values into behaviors exhibited by every member of the organization.

The first step in achieving organizational alignment is for the senior leaders to define the company’s vision, mission, and goals. Team members cannot work towards common goals if they aren’t clear on the goals they are supposed to be achieving. The next step is for the vision, mission, and goals to be communicated to every team member in an engaging way which offers them an understanding of how the organization’s work, and thus their individual work, will matter to people around them. Another step is to state and role model the values, the beliefs and actions that the organization intends to live by. This sets the stage for company policies and practices that position the staff to fulfill the company goals in a supportive and ethical environment.
