Clarify Your Due North
Your mission, vision, and values, coupled with your culture code, form your organizational "drumbeat." This drumbeat paves the way for your Team and Leadership to behave, do and become to reach their potential. Teams realize their potential when everyone knows the answers to the following six questions*:
- Why do we exist?
- How do we behave?
- What do we do?
- How will we succeed?
- What is most important right now?
- Who must do what?
When you define these answers, your Due North becomes clear. Then, you transform into an Organization with purpose.
