BEHAVIORAL GOVERNANCE FRAMEWORK
Being situationally aware and sensitive to objectives
WHAT THE BEHAVIOR ENTAILS
Alignment and strategy go hand in hand. Being aligned means having a shared understanding of where the organization is going and how it will get there. A process of inclusion and considering multiple viewpoints when creating, communicating and executing strategies will help employees at all levels feel more aligned and help them gain a clearer understanding of the vison and direction of the organization. Sharing a clear, common purpose and focus allows employees to feel energized and provides clarity in decision-making. Since employees may be motivated by things other than money or profit, including feeling a part of something bigger, or helping and inspiring their teams to succeed, creating alignment helps to reinforce shared bonds of trust and understanding.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
Alignment allows your organization to focus on what truly matters. Organizations are strongest when their people are aligned and able to share knowledge, best practices, and are committed to achieving results for the betterment of the collective. Engaging members by helping them see a common higher purpose in their work can also be an effective way to motivate higher performance.
