First

You have to start with your vision. Habakkuk 2:2 says,

…write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

So it is important to get things out of our minds and into a format that is both transferrable and able to be utilized by multiple persons within your organization.

I cannot tell you how important it is to have the right team around you! No, everyone is not going to have the same strengths, but linking up with like-minded individuals that are just as passionate as you are about your organizational goals is key. Hold team meetings to ensure that ideas are heard, plans are solidified, and everyone is motivated.

Third

Implement your vision plan that you established up front. Sticking to your organizational values is one of the keys to help you be most impactful. Evaluate your program periodically to ensure the organizational goals still parallel the overall vision.
