Politics aside, the one thing Maggie Thatcher had over pretty much any prime minister since, is a strong vision.
She had a vision that anyone, from any background should have the opportunity to achieve their ambitions.
She had a number of missions to make that vision happen including owning your own council house, owning shares in companies that the country relied on, reigning in the power of the unions, not giving Brussels the decision-making powers they sought over the UK and so on.
She had strong values based around the right of the ‘common man’ to be whomever he or she wanted to be.
Look at your vision, mission and values. Do they exist? Are they known and understood by all in your company and other stakeholders? Along with your purpose, do they guide you and give you the confidence to make the right, and sometimes tough, decisions and to stay on course to achieving them?
