We all have different values and beliefs and while variety is great for innovation, differences in values and beliefs can be counterproductive when an organisation or team is trying to achieve a goal. So how do you communicate organizational values and beliefs to try and get everyone pulling in the same direction?
One way is to create a dramatic story with a fictional character to demonstrate what happens if a particular value or values are not adhered to. Your fictional character and a powerful story can bring your message to life in a meaningful way for your audience much more than a traditional ‘We need to follow x behaviour because it’s the right thing to do’.
Tips for constructing your story:
- Base it on hypothetical story to avoid controversy
- Ensure your behaviour consistently represents the value (s) you are describing
the only constant is more than happy to help with the articulation and communication of organisation values. Get in touch to discuss further.
