Core Belief 1: People Branding
Visions Consulting believes that a person’s individual dreams, values, deeply felt beliefs and perceptions in life directly influence and govern the behaviour of that person in all situations and walks of life. This means that a person will come to work with his/her dreams, values, belief system and perceptions, which will have a direct impact on the culture and overall success of the business in which the person is employed. Leaders should therefore aim to attract and retain people that share the same values and deeply felt beliefs as the business.

Core Belief 2: People Behaviour
Visions Consulting believes that it is the experiences in life that moulds people into behaving in specific ways in different situations and/or environments. Therefore, we believe that a person’s behaviour can be influenced and changed on condition that the expected behaviour change is not in conflict with the person’s individual core values and belief system. Sustainable change is only possible if people voluntarily travel on the journey of change.

Core Belief 3: Appeal to the Hearts and Souls of People
Visions Consulting believes that people is the primary and single most important factor in ensuring business success. The leader that successfully unlocks the potential and leverages off of the accumulated strengths of the people working for the business will secure sustainable business success.

We believe that business will succeed in achieving its business objectives if leadership appeals to the ‘hearts and souls’ of the individuals that work in the organisation.

Core Belief 4: Passionate Competent People
Visions Consulting believes that any successful business is influenced by leaders that have a clearly defined, realistic vision of how the future should look, communicate the vision clearly to all stakeholders and also understand that the vision can only be achieved by taking passionate, competent people along on the journey of discovering the rewards in realising the vision.

Visions Consulting believes that people need to enjoy what they are doing (passion), however, that people will only enjoy what they are doing if they are doing what they want and like to do and know how to do it well (competence).

We believe that competence consists of three components:

  • knowledge of what a person is doing or supposed to do;
  • the skills to effectively (doing the right things) and efficiently (doing the right things really well) apply knowledge and to do what a person is supposed to do;
  • the degree to which a person is demonstrating the desired attitude and behaviour in terms of the relevant business culture.

Visions Consulting believes that all three these components of competence (knowledge, skills and behaviour) should be present in a person in order to make that person competent. This means that if a person has the desired knowledge and skills, however, do not demonstrate the required attitude and behaviour relevant to the culture of the business, then such person would not be classified as being competent for the business. Hence, all three components need to be present in order to classify a person as being competent. Focused competency development interventions need to be engaged in order to address any shortcomings in any of these components in a person.

Core Belief 5: Leadership
Visions Consulting passionately believes that leadership encompasses more than mere focusing on the business vision, culture, business objectives and understanding the dynamics of people. We believe that a critical component of leadership is that a leader should have relevant sound technical knowledge and skills of the particular business which he/she is supposed to lead. Technical knowledge, skills and general know-how gives the leader credibility amongst their peers, followers and all other stakeholders. Therefore, we believe that leadership is a coming together of many elements: the ability to have a clear vision of the future; the ability to communicate the vision, mission and objectives clearly to all stakeholders; the ability to influence people to willingly work to achieve the vision and business objectives; the ability to lead root cause problem solving analysis processes by making use of his/her unique technical know-how; the ability to move people into action; and the ability to show compassion for people.

Core Belief 6: Happy People are Productive People
Visions Consulting believes that passionate people create a conducive environment for innovation and continuous improvement. Passionate people inspire fellow team members to come into their own by expressing themselves through their own unique abilities in their work.

We believe that the challenge that modern business is facing today is to leverage off of individual diversity and to acknowledge the individual interests of people; to unlock their potential through understanding their personal visions in life and to create the environment that allows people to engage activities and work that gives them energy and fuels their passion in life. Only then will people be able to be passionate about their work and will they be optimally productive.

We believe that happy people, are productive people!

Core Belief 7: Life-Long Learning
Visions Consulting believes that each and every person is on a journey of life-long learning: it starts on the day that we are born and ends on the day that we leave this life.

We believe that each and every person needs to take responsibility and accountability for his/her own life experiences, development and growth in their journey of life-long learning.

We believe that every moment in life is a learning experience: it gives us the wisdom to learn from the past, the courage to apply in the present and the vision to share experiences with future generations.

Core Belief 8: Our Children are the Future
Visions Consulting believes that the children of all the nations in the world are the entrepreneurs, business minds and leaders of the future. Our children will set the pace for the future and therefore we believe that every nation should take great care in ensuring that education systems are adequate, relevant, caring and of an exceptional high standard.

We should ensure that we do not harm our children in any way during their formative years and to provide our children with the best education possible with the resources at our disposal. We should create the most educational conducive environment for our children in which they can flourish and blossom into mature, well-balanced individuals that will contribute to life.

In fact: business should not harm its people in any way – ever!

Core Belief 9: Wisdom in Simplicity
Visions Consulting believes that business processes and people are complex in nature and behaviour, but, that the solutions to business processes and people challenges should be simple in nature and process. We believe that each business should develop its own unique signature in doing busniness by embracing the innovative ideas of its people. We believe that there is no substitute for clear logic!

Core Belief 10: Communication
Visions Consulting believes that people should draw on lessons from past experiences to solve present challenges and to anticipate future challenges. We believe that the cornerstone of successful organisations and people processes is effective continuous communication. We believe that if we engage people and encourage individuals to share their ideas and experiences – irrespective of the status and level of people in an organisation - that all challenges will become opportunities for growth. We believe that the solutions to most challenges are already known by people working in a particular organisation. The art is to create the appropriate communication forums where people are allowed to share their ideas and opinions. We need to listen to the message, to clearly hear the message and to have the courage to take action.
