Having an Audacious Vision

An audacious vision has the power to energize and inspire you and your team.

One of our long-term clients sends out a memo once a month to the entire company reiterating the company’s vision.  The CEO goes to each department sharing the company’s progress while inquiring on his role in making them be as successful as possible.  Even though Strategic CFO acts as an outside consultant to the company, he makes sure we receive the memo so that we are all clear on the direction the company is going.

It is important to understand the vision of the CEO/President/Entrepreneur/Board Member.

As an employee on any level, you should ask about the vision. This will help you to maximize your purpose within the organization.
