How Buy-In Can Creates Sense of Responsibility

As executive leadership and senior team members put together new strategies as it relates to operations, sales, or strategy, creating buy-in with your employees is critical.  Often times, leadership rolls-out a new strategy without involving the employees that will be executed it.

A few ways to engage team members:

  • Create an internal committee including representatives from each department to participate in a brainstorming session.
  • Ask your employees for feedback or ideas related to enhancing the current strategy.
  • Present the new strategy to all employees explaining the value of this new direction.
  • Communicate the progress of the new direction to all employees.

Empowering your employees to take ownership and develop a sense responsibility will influence the success of the new approach.
