Your organization is a fiction only given power, meaning and purpose by those who buy in. If 30 people believe this and 60 people believe that, you are running two companies. You have been divided and are on your way to being conquered. Buy in allows you to create one singular organization.
So how do you achieve buy in? You need clarity and consistency in three areas.
It all starts with Operational clarity and consistency by installing an Organizational Operating System like EOS®, Scaling Up, The Advantage, Holacracy, etc. If you have already taken that step you are in the right place, please read on.
Operational clarity is like riding a unicycle. It is the big front wheel of Operational, Cultural, and Structural clarity and consistency. As a leader of the organization, you hop on the unicycle (Operational clarity) and start riding… but it is hard, you don’t really know how to ride it, not sure where you are going to end up, and you are scared that you will never be able to stop pedaling. You are probably the only person that knows how to ride and attempt to build any momentum.
What if you could attach two back wheels to that unicycle? Then you would have a tricycle, the type of bike that everyone learns to ride on, anyone could sit down to help you pedal, and as a result you could create a momentum machine that is always moving forward.
You will complete the following courses to build your momentum machine:
Course #1: Cultural Clarity and Consistency [7 Question – 7 Promise Framework™]
The 7 Question – 7 Promise Framework™ is an everyday practical approach to cultivate buy-in, increase engagement, and maintain perpetual momentum using the Organizational Operating System (OOS) you have already chosen. Same OOS tools, just a new mindset you can use to measure Cultural clarity and consistency.

Organizations that have already implemented an Organizational Operating System can add the two back wheels of the tricycle and create a momentum machine.
Please Note: If you are just getting started and need Operational clarity and consistency with an Organizational Operating System this subscription is not the best place to start, but don’t worry we can help with that too!)
