What is a healthy vision?

Imagine your business five years from today. What does the office look like? Who is working in the office? What kinds of new products and new customers do you have? What revenue and growth goals are you reaching? What kinds of obstacles are you facing? A business vision is not a mission statement, or an excel spreadsheet. It’s a mix of practical and hopeful. A business vision generates tangible goals and a plan for how to achieve them.

Why is a healthy vision important?

When we’re clear on where we want to go, we are more able to cut through the noise and the day-to-day of our work and make strategic impactful decisions. We can invest in solutions and partners proactively, instead of reacting to unforeseen obstacles. And, we can rally our team behind us — ensuring everyone is focused on the same goals.

How do I create a healthy vision?

Businesses with a healthy vision generally:

  • Can easily explain their vision for the future
  • Have a five-year plan for business growth
  • Are focused and strategic, not reactive
  • Are familiar with industry benchmarks and know how their business aligns
  • Invest in talent, resources and solutions that support the long-term business vision

Your business vision can be as formal or informal as you want. Write it on a napkin or paint it on the wall of your office. Review it regularly and change it as your business grows. What’s most important is that you can clearly share your vision with your employees and partners, so your entire organization stays on track.
