Creating a Clear and Compelling Vision (Bristol, UK)
A vision can give everyone within the organisation a picture of what the future looks like after a change initiative is implemented. It is a widely supported belief that major change is not embedded or adopted thoroughly unless everyone can align themselves to a vision by connecting with the future in a meaningful way. For a vision to really work, it is less about writing the perfect vision statement, but instead finding the personal ‘thread’ that will create the connection and meaning for individuals from the very beginning.
This event will take a collaborative approach. The speakers will share previous experience of visions, specifically looking at what a vision is, what a vision is not and several methods of how to create a vision. The event will show how a vision helps organisations make the right choices when building a vision and as such various techniques will be presented to share knowledge on building visions, where a selection of methods will be chosen to workshop with attendees.
Here at the Change Management Institute we want to practice what we preach and therefore two of our volunteers have teamed up to facilitate our first event for 2019. Going forward the South West chapter will use the experiences and knowledge gained from this session to create our own vision.
So, join us as we delve into some of the facets of successfully creating a vision and why a clear and compelling vision is so important for clarity of direction, alignment of stakeholders, facilitating staff engagement, relationship building and aiding decision-making.
By the end of the evening we hope you will leave with new connections in your local area and the following knowledge, whether new or enhanced:
- Appreciate differences between purpose, vision, strategy and values, whilst understanding the connections needed to facilitate united direction for and with all stakeholders;
- Understand why mind-set and individual learning needs to be part of building a vision; and
- Awareness and experience of using visioning tools to help develop a compelling vision.
Places are limited so make sure you sign up today to secure your place and avoid disappointment. We look forward to welcoming you in the New Year!
About our Speakers
Mike is a certified change practitioner with a motto ‘for the people by the people’. Mike has been working within a change environment for the last 2 and a half years, with a further background in Agile coaching and although well versed in a number of tools and methods, has a keen interest in building networks and change agency. As an active volunteer for the newly re-energized South West chapter, Mike was first drawn to the network because he wanted to look outside his current “bubble” to learn what other people do in change while sharing his own experiences and knowledge and hopes to learn more about himself and others from his participation on this new journey.
Dean is certified change practitioner currently responsible for the successful delivery of change projects and has significant experience of facilitating change management within Business, Finance and ICT. His route to change management has been through Project Management, has seen the good, the bad and the ugly within change initiatives and can appreciate the stark differences between “over the fence” delivery and “embedded change”. As an active volunteer for the reborn South West chapter, Dean’s drivers for joining the network are to “connect and engage” with like-minded change professionals and to share his experiences with others, whilst also adding to his change/life experience “tool bag” from the valued interactions as a result.
