If so, HOW Do You Rebuild?
The beginning of a new year is a time to consider new horizons and new growth strategies. Sometimes, a “rebuilding” process needs to be considered to bring NEW life to an organization. There are two options in the rebuilding process: First, you may need to overhaul your administrative and management systems, or you may need to let the old organization die and begin again. As you rebuild your organization, it’s important to focus on the following key areas:
Build, or rebuild around the organization’s purpose. It’s reason for being! What is your true purpose and what direction will you take? At Inzet, we help clients look up from where they are and define the “why” that animates their organization. This becomes their own inzet — the passionate heart-and-mind purpose they can harness to focus decisions on what matters most.
Evoke an open and engaged leadership team. Choose key leaders who will participate actively and enthusiastically. Be sure they support the organization’s purpose. They must put aside vested interests in favor of the organization and its’ team members and clients.
Set clear staff roles. Next, examine your organization’s job descriptions. Redesign them to stress how each job helps accomplish the organization’s purpose. Clearly delineate each job description so that it includes all necessary functions and does not overlap with any other job. Make certain that all leaders and team members understand their role and how it relates to the greater whole.
Customer experience. Be sure your organization is aware and responsive to your client’s needs. Better educate yourself and your team about your client’s needs and think of ways you can address those needs with a new enthusiasm. Actively seek the team’s support in new ways to serve clients (and each other) with a focus on the organization’s purpose.
If you don’t have these vital ingredients in place, rebuilding an organization around purpose will be impossible. At every stage of the rebuilding process, reality-test your conclusions. Ask for constant review and recommendations from team members and clients on your rebuilding efforts.
Rebuilding is a dynamic, living process. Roles and job descriptions should change as realities change. Good leaders will allow these changes to occur, for failure to do so will result in confusion, miscommunication, and a state of organizational chaos, which undermines morale.
INZET’s goal is to help clients focus on how to achieve team growth while being built around purpose. Our three-phase program will assess where an organization is and how it got there, enable them to build a purpose-driven vision for growth, and help integrate purpose-driven decisions for realizing that vision as quickly as possible.
