Do you know what your company is trying to achieve? Are you able to convey that to your team? It is important that you have a clear idea of the company’s vision, the goals and have an unswerving commitment to achieving them.
The ability to think holistically and beyond the details is important to create a clear vision that a team can understand and get behind. However, it is your own belief, commitment, and loyalty to those goals that are crucial to get team buy-in and thereby to achieve the vision. If you, yourself, are not optimistic and committed to the vision, then your team cannot possibly be enthusiastic and committed to achieving it with you.
The facet is measured in the following areas:
Assertive - are you confident and forcefulness to dominate in social situations?
Ambitious - are you continually enhancing your professional credentials?
Intellectual - do you enjoy theory, intellectual discourse, and lifelong learning
Strategic - do you identify long-term or overall aims and interests and the means of achieving them?
Clarity and focus - do you work hard and keep focused on the goals at hand?
Optimism - are you hopeful and believe that you can achieve your goals?
Commitment and loyalty - do you have an unswerving commitment to your company’s goals?
You are able to see the big picture and have a holistic view of the company and what you are looking to achieve. You are able to think towards the future and create a vision for that possible future and success, and are ambitious enough to put your resources into achieving it.
You are able to at both times see the big picture and the details. The details may hinder your ability to create a cohesive and concrete vision for the future of your organization and what you hope to achieve, but you do have the ability to encourage others to think beyond the day to day roles.
You find it difficult to see the big picture as you are often mired down in the details of your day to day work. Your role within the organization falls more to the implementation of the vision than creating the vision itself.
More people are concerned with doing something that adds value and having a real purpose in their lives. Find the purpose of your role, your company’s goals and then strive to achieve them, for example helping the people around you succeed.
