The need for every organisation to develop and improve is constant in today’s highly pressurised professional world. To meet these challenges, an organisation needs to prioritise; clarity in its mission, attain and maintain effective relationships across and within operational levels, mitigate against negative influences, and to promote the psychological wellbeing of its members to enable the harnessing of their creativity and productive energy.
The power of a great vision is only unleashed when those involved in an organisation have a common understanding of its mission and direction, the outcome of which provides a desirable future that motivates the required actions regardless of the short-term difficulties encountered. A strong awareness of capabilities and challenges, and the ability to communicate effectively across the organisation are imperative for successful organisational development. Specifically, the real and perceived benefits for, and concerns and obstacles of, employees and stakeholders should constantly be pre-empted, understood and managed until the transformation is firmly entrenched within the organisation’s culture. To enable this, communication must be frequent, clear and consistent across and within levels, to ensure that each and every member understands the mission, vision and direction, and is clear on their role in its achievement. The ability of leadership and management to receive and consider feedback from all levels should also be an instrumental part of practice. Such feedback promotes the ownership, confidence and creativity required to provide the most cost-effective and aligned solutions. In conclusion, such awareness and effective communication minimises pressure and promotes the positive and cohesive environment vital for success in an organisation’s developmental mission.
