Consentricity infuses the vision (the future mission), strategy, purpose, and mission with a profound commitment to collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable practices. It transforms these elements from mere statements into a guiding philosophy that shapes every decision, action, and interaction within the organization, with the ultimate goal of creating a just, fair, and inclusive environment while making a positive, enduring impact on society, the environment, and other stakeholders.
Let’s describe the vision, strategy, purpose, and mission within the context of Consentricity™:
In a Consentric vision, the organization aspires to create a world where collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable value distribution are the cornerstones of all endeavors. It envisions a future where positive influence and enduring value radiate within the organization and extend to society, the environment, and all stakeholders. This vision is about achieving financial success and leaving a lasting, positive impact on the world.
Three questions to guide discussions and reflections to craft a Consentric Vision that is aspirational and deeply aligned with collaboration, inclusivity, and equity principles:
- What kind of world do we envision creating through our organization’s actions and influence?
- How can we integrate collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable practices into our long-term vision?
- What lasting, positive legacy do we aim to leave for future generations and all stakeholders?
A Consentric strategy is a roadmap that aligns every facet of the organization with the vision. It outlines how the organization will integrate collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable practices into all its operations, from product development to customer engagement. The strategy prioritizes initiatives that create positive change, foster EQuitability, and promote a culture of collective strength.
These questions can guide the development of a Consentric Strategy that not only drives financial success but also actively integrates collaboration, inclusivity, and equity as essential pillars of the organization’s approach to achieving its vision:
- How can we align our strategic initiatives with the principles of collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable value distribution to advance our Consentric Vision?
- What measures can we implement to promote cross-functional collaboration within our organization and across our ecosystem of partners and stakeholders?
- How can we ensure that our strategic decisions prioritize positive impact on society, the environment, and all stakeholders, in addition to financial success?
The purpose in a Consentric framework is to catalyze positive transformation. It’s about more than just profit; it’s about fostering an environment where individuals feel deeply valued, where their contributions are recognized, and where the organization actively works to dismantle silos and promote inclusivity. The purpose is to be a force for good, both within and beyond the organization.
These questions can guide the development of a Consentric Purpose that not only defines the organization’s mission but also serves as a source of inspiration, unity, and a driving force behind the commitment to collaboration, inclusivity, and equity:
- Why does our organization exist beyond financial success, and how can we articulate a purpose that reflects our commitment to collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable practices?
- How can we create an environment where every team member feels deeply valued, recognized for their contributions, and inspired by our Consentric Purpose?
- In what ways can our Consentric Purpose serve as a unifying force, bringing together internal teams, external partners, and stakeholders toward a shared vision of positive impact?
The mission in a Consentric context is the actionable commitment to realizing the vision. It is the organization’s daily pledge to operate collaboratively, to ensure inclusivity in all interactions, and to distribute value fairly among stakeholders. The mission is to orchestrate a symphony of strengths, where each note, representing every team member and partner, contributes to a harmonious whole that creates lasting, positive change in the world.
These questions can guide the development of a Consentric Mission that not only defines the organization’s commitment but also sets a clear path for achieving the Consentric Vision by emphasizing collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable value distribution in all aspects of its work:
- How can we translate our Consentric Purpose into actionable commitments and daily practices that reflect our dedication to collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable value distribution?
- What specific goals and objectives can we establish to ensure that our Consentric Mission actively contributes to our Consentric Vision of positive impact, both internally and externally?
- How can we actively communicate and reinforce our Consentric Mission throughout the organization, ensuring that every team member is aligned with and motivated by our shared commitment to collaboration, inclusivity, and equitable practices?
