Helping your Team see the Big Picture

Helping Them See The Big Picture
The foundation for creating a meaningful work environment is to help team members see how they fit into the big picture. People will naturally become more passionate about their work when they clearly understand they are part of something bigger than themselves. As a leader, you must be able to answer the four questions team members commonly ask (and they are asking these questions  whether you hear them or not):

1. Where are we going? (Strategy)
2. How are we going to get there? (Plans)
3. How can I contribute? (Roles)
4. Whats in it for me? (Rewards)

Help your Team members see the Big Picture by providing images in their minds eye. Remember, The words you say will create those images.
