What is Clarity?
It is the quality of being easy to see, hear or focus; sharpness of image or sound. It is the freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity. Often business owners don’t address clarity when defining their vision, goals, and business plans. Focus is not something that comes naturally. It is a skill that must be developed, and before you can develop the skill, you must know what you need to focus upon.
What is it you really want? What do you want professionally? Personally? For you family? What is your vision for your life? Knowing the answers to these questions is what I mean by having clarity in all areas of your life. Clarity means having an Unchained view of your vision, which is what do you want and why do you want it. Then the next layer is going deeper into its purpose and its value. Companies with a lack of vision often struggle at best, and in worst cases, they fail altogether.
Benefits of Clarity
Clarity brings many advantages, which include the following:
- Peace of Mind– a clear understanding the direction the firm is going
- Team Engagement– a clear vision is shared with the team and accelerates their delivery of the company’s vision
- Close more & better business- clarity enhances your message and confidence, which shows in your excitement with prospects
- You Achieve Your Goals Faster– when everyone in the organization is rowing in the same direction and in the same rhythm you get to get where you’re going a lot faster. The path is Clear!
Clarity Must Come First
Clarity has to be the top priority in your organization. There isn’t a magic formula or a box to check, but it takes work to achieve clarity. It takes the leadership team to become vulnerable to share the vision, mission, business plan, and goals with everyone in the organization, which creates engagement and alignment. Team members also have a responsibility to speak up when things don’t seem clear, and organizational clarity is a two-way street where everyone has to participate equally. If you manage and create a culture of clarity inside your firm, you will see fewer problems, better execution, and happier, more productive teams.
