The challenge for most organisations is not devising a vision, a set of values and a meaningful strategy, but to get its people on board. This book of essays will assist you in this journey. It will help your leaders and other employees understand the bigger picture of what the organisation is about and how they can contribute, align their needs and values to those of the organisation and help give meaning and purpose to their work. Through this, a culture of partnership will be strengthened where employees become active players in co-creating the future of the organisation.
