An important element in high-performance organizations is the presence of clear and widely embraced vision and values of an organization. Consider your own organization. Is the vision/mission/purpose for the organization clear? Are the values clear? Are the vision and values widely embraced by organizational members? Are organizational members aligned with the vision? From your personal experiences and from research, what are the consequences of having organizational members aligned to vision/values? What are the consequences of having organizational members who are not aligned to vision/values? How do leaders align members to the organizational vision and inspire productive organizational behaviors?
