GFM WORKBOOK

INSIDE A CHAMPION’S MIND

Throughout the Tour de France, a Columbian rider on the Kelme – Costa Blanca Team, Santiago Botero, had been keeping a diary for his local newspaper. This submission offers a different perspective and is well worth the read…

“There I am all alone with my bike. I know of only two riders ahead of me as I near the end of the second climb on what most riders consider the third worst mountain stage in the Tour. I say ‘most riders’ because I do not fear mountains. After all, our country is nothing but mountains. I train year-round in the mountains. I am the national champion from a country that is nothing but mountains. I trail only my teammate, Fernando Escartin, and a Swiss rider. Pantani, one of my rival climbers, and the Gringo Armstrong are in the Peleton about five minutes behind me. I am climbing on such a steep portion of the mountain that if I were to stop pedaling, I will fall backward. Even for a world-class climber, this is a painful and slow process. I am in my upright position pedaling at a steady pace willing myself to finish this climb so I can conserve my energy for the final climb of the day. The Kelme team leader radios to me that the Gringo has left the Peleton by himself and that they can no longer see him. I recall thinking ‘the Gringo cannot catch me by himself’.

A short while later, I hear the gears of another bicycle. Within seconds, the Gringo is next to me – riding in the seated position, smiling at me. He was only next to me for a few seconds and he said nothing – he only smiled and then proceeded up the mountain as if he were pedaling downhill. For the next several minutes, I could only think of one thing – his smile. His smile told me everything. I kept thinking that surely he is in as much agony as me, perhaps he was standing and struggling up the mountain as I was and he only sat down to pass me and discourage me. Not possible. The truth is that his smile said everything that his lips did not. His smile said to me, ‘I was training while you were sleeping Santiago’. It also said, ‘I won this tour four months ago, while you were deciding what bike frame to use in the Tour. I trained harder than you did, Santiago. I don’t know if I am better than you, but I have outworked you, and right now you cannot do anything about it. Enjoy your ride, Santiago. See you in Paris.’

LES MILLS INTERNATIONAL

GUIDE TO CREATING YOUR

VISION, MISSION, VALUES & GOALS

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

– why and how!

• Why bother?
• At best this quartet of vision, mission, values and goals is capable of guiding your everyday steps to achieving your work-place dreams and becoming your team’s ultimate “Coach”. At worst they create huge obstacles to success because they are confused, uninspiring and lacking in clarity – together they then become the Coach you need to fire ASAP.
• So our tools for both triumph or tribulation appear to be over-used jargon where everyone talks about creating a vision, mission, values and goals, everyone has an opinion and even worse, everyone defines the terms in different ways.
• Inside this chaos is good sense. Put clear meaning into the jargon and we are invited to make that meaning specific to our business team and:
• Speed up our decision making,
• Know where to focus resources,
• Be more efficient and
• Ensure every action builds towards the future we have designed.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

– why and how!

Is this relevant to me?

We all have a choice, whether we are under-resourced and marginalized in Group Fit or enjoy significant investment and management support.

It’s all about perspective.

Oakley took his last \$300 and made some revolutionary sports sunglasses in his garage, when his wife was expecting their first child. Some would say it’s not possible with so little money. His view was an absolute commitment to find how he could make it happen with \$300. And now Oakley is a global brand across several product categories and continues to seek out how to grow into new products/services.

Whether you have \$300 or \$3 million as a budget and a team of 2 or 200, you can choose to meet obstacles with a readiness to find new ways to build your team’s success or you can opt out.

Les Mills International challenges you to take the quartet of vision, mission, values and goals and create a Coach which will allow your team to be all that it can be, with every action underpinned by clear purpose.

How do I develop our Vision, Mission, Values and Goals – our “Coach”?

If possible, it would be ideal to have an independent consultant facilitate you developing your “Coach”. However, in the event this is not feasible, we have put together an overview of relevant definitions plus how to create your vision, mission, values and goals, working with your team, in-house.

VISION + MISSION + VALUES + GOALS =

ULTIMATE COACH TO ACHIEVE YOUR WORK BASED DREAMS

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

WHEN JARGON HAS MEANING

Overview

Forget anything else you may have read on the quartet and apply these meanings when building your “Coach”.

Vision: A short, inspiring statement of where you’d like to get to

Mission: How you intend to get there by being the best at what you do

Values: How you will behave every day on the way to fulfilling yourmission

Goals: Key benchmarks for achieving your mission (must include

quantifiable targets)

Vision – definition

Your vision must be perpetually inspiring and so must also be unattainable. It will get you up in the morning. It motivates you to meet goals and pursue your mission. It drives you to fulfill your potential. It must be authentic to your team – faking it’s a no go!

Here’s a few examples to give you a taste of what some other organizations have defined as their vision.

Walt Disney:

To make people happy

Nike:

To experience the emotion of competition, winning and crushing competitors

Les Mills International:

To inspire life-changing fitness experiences every time, everywhere

It’s readily apparent that each vision is impossible to ‘achieve’ and yet is constantly inspiring for each organization.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

WHEN JARGON HAS MEANING

Mission - definition

Your mission highlights what you are best at in order to pursue the vision. It tells you where you are going to focus your efforts and resources in order to win at this activity.

Mission statements guide an organization or a team in its day-to-day operations whereas a vision provides a sense of long term direction and inspiration for the future.

It’s critical that a mission statement enhances involvement from all stakeholder perspectives: namely owners, employees/contractors and customers. With all stakeholders receiving benefit from the achieving the mission, loyalty and commitment to your organization can deepen over time.

Deciding your mission is a defining moment for your organization’s or team’s leadership. By answering the question “how do we intend to win at this activity”, organizations must identify both their strengths and weaknesses and prioritize where they can operate most effectively in the competitive arena.

By way of illustration, here’s some mission statements from other operations for your review.

IBM:

We want to be the best service organization in the world

Walmart:

To give ordinary folk the chance to buy the same things as rich people

Les Mills International:

To deliver world-class fitness experiences with leading edge Group Fitness

Programs

Each organization has filtered down its strengths to a key attribute which it believes will underpin the organizations ability to win in its field and achieve its mission.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

WHEN JARGON HAS MEANING

• Values - definition
• Values are behaviors. They are marching orders and so are “the how” of the mission. Like the vision, values endure in perpetuity, as they define who an organization is and how it will behave to pursue its mission and its vision.
• Typically organizations have 4 to 6 values such as noted below.
• Walt Disney
• No cynicism
• Nurturing of ‘wholesome American values’
• Creativity, dreams and imagination
• Fanatical attention to consistency and detail
• Preservation and control of the Disney Magic
• Merck
• Corporate social responsibility
• Unequivocal excellence in all aspects of the company
• Science based innovation
• Honesty and integrity
• Profit from work that benefits humanity
• Les Mills International
• World class
• Honest
• Heart
• Accountable
• Innovative
• Free to inspire
• Note that organizations can have social values, business specific values and emotional/psychological values as part of their value system.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

WHEN JARGON HAS MEANING

Goals - definition

Typically organizations set stretch goals which are measurable. Goals are attainable and typically have a 5-10 year timeline. However some organizations have even longer term goals with a timeframe of up to 30 years!

We recommend working with a 5-10 year goals within Group Fitness, with steps made each year to build towards success. Once the goal(s) are met, then new stretch goals are identified to take the organization forward.

Goal setting with a 5 -10 year timeframe becomes relevant to today’s activities by setting shorter term goals which are clear steps along the path to achieving the 5-10 year goal(s).

Some examples of longer term goals include:

Walmart:

Become a \$125 billion company by year 2000 (made in 1990)

Ford:

Democratize the automobile (early 1900s)

Les Mills International:

To be a top 5 global consumer fitness brand by 2015 and have 25,000 clubs with

5 programs by 2015.

Vision

To inspire life-changing fitness experiences every time, everywhere

Mission

To deliver world-class fitness experiences with leading edge Group Fitness Programmes

Values

World Class, Honest, Heart, Innovative, Accountable, Free to Inspire

Goal(s)

To be a top 5 global consumer fitness brand by 2015 and have 25,000 clubs with 5 programmes by 2015

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

Putting together the Coach

By way of example, set out below is a summary of Les Mills International’s “Coach”.

With their aligned vision, mission, values and goals, Les Mills International is primed to continue its pursuit of its mission while being perpetually inspired by its vision:

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

How to create your Coach – setting your vision, mission, values and goals for Group Fitness

Step 1

Obtain your organization’s overall vision, mission, values and goals (if they are available).

Once you have them you are encouraged to use them to make sure your Group Fit vision, mission, values and goals fit with the overall organization’s.

Should it not be possible to get hold of organizations vision, mission, values and goals, please keep following the steps noted below.

We recommend Steps 2 – Steps 5 are actioned in an in-house workshop with your team.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

• Step 2 - Vision
• Phase I – generating a GF Vision
• The quickest way to identify a perpetually inspiring vision for Group Fit is to call your key team into a room, grab some post-it pads and pens and ask yourselves:
• Why do we do this?
• What do we want to create or provide by offering this service?
• How do we want to make a difference?
• What motivated us to get into Group Fit?
• Why do we continue to be involved in Group Fit?
• Throw everything down on post-it notes and share them. Discuss and refine what feels right for the team.
• Please note that your vision will not be about money as that can be benchmarked and superseded. Your vision will be a continual source of empowering purpose every day which by its very nature cannot be attained as it continues to inspire.
• Phase II – checking your GF Vision is right
• While it may feel repetitive, keep asking “why”, even when you have a vision that feels good, to check it’s the ultimate inspiring vision for the team. You want a power packed motivator which will be timeless.
• When you’ve got something such as, “to improve the health and well being of our community,” you will be getting close as long as you and your team are getting excited!!
• Phase III – benchmarking your GF Vision with your organization’s overall vision
• Check that this GF Vision supports your organization’s overall vision, if one is available.
• If your GF Vision and the organization vision are in conflict, ask yourself why.
• Within our industry, desired economic outcomes are partnered by wanting to change peoples’ lives for the better. If your GF Vision incorporates this desire to improve people’s wellbeing it should be unlikely to find a philosophical mismatch with your organization’s vision.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

• Step 3 - Mission
• In order to derive how you are going to pursue your GF Vision, you need to establish what you are best at in order to aspire to that GF Vision!
• Phase I – generating your GF Mission
• Once again, you need to work with your team. Get some post-it pads, pens and follow this system. Ask yourselves:
• What are we good at as a team?
• What am I good at as a part of this team?
• What do we have the best reputation for?
• What makes us different from our competitors?
• Why would someone refer us to a friend?
• When you’ve found a consensus on what you are best at, ask yourselves ‘why’ three more times, in order to check there really is depth to why you are saying a particular aspect is your greatest strength.
• If there are not enough reasons why this is your greatest strength, revisit the strengths the team has already identified to choose which attribute you are going to focus on to win in Group Fit!
• Then develop your mission statement so it shows how you are going to win.
• It may be that you come up with a mission e.g:
• “To be the most innovative and successful Group Fitness destination in our suburb/city/region”.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

Phase II – checking your GF Mission supports your GF Vision

Once you have a GF mission, check it will help you pursue your GF Vision.

For example the GF Mission “to be the most innovative and successful Group Fitness destination in our suburb/city/region” is aligned with the example GF Vision to “improve the health and well being of the community.” This is because the GF Mission encourages the provision of superb Group Fit experiences which in turn will benefit members of the community you serve.

If you find you can’t see how your GF mission would fit with your GF Vision, ask yourself again if your GF Vision is right.

If you conclude once more that your GF Vision is right, then revisit your GF Mission by returning to Step 3 until you are confident that your GF Mission is aligned with your existing GF Vision.

In the event that your GF Mission work highlights that your GF Vision is not right, return to creating your GF Vision via Step 2, before confirming your output for your GF Mission through Step 3.

IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOUR GF MISSION SUPPORTS YOUR GF VISION. KEEP GOING UNTIL THEY ARE ALIGNED!

Phase III – confirm your GF Mission supports your organization’s overall mission

Finally, double check if the GF Mission fits with your facility’s overall mission, if one is available.

If your visions are in harmony, it is unlikely your missions will be in conflict.

Also, as mission statements focus on how organizations are going to win in their chosen activity, your GF Mission can only enhance your organization’s own mission, which will also be seeking how to win, though at an organizational (rather than GF) level.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

• Step 4 - Values
• Phase I – Generating your GF Values
• To decide how the team should behave every day on its journey to the GF Mission use the following approach.
• Take some post-it notes and pens with the team and identify the following. If you wish, you can use the example list of values in Schedule I.
• What words would people use to describe them as an individual?
• What words would people use to describe them in the workplace?
• What behaviors do you each believe would help you achieve your GF Mission?
• What behaviors do you each believe will sabotage you pursuing your GF Mission?
• Take the post-it notes that relate to what behaviors would help achieve the GF Mission and then compare them with individuals’ behaviors in and out of the workplace.
• Look for the pattern where the behaviors required to deliver to the GF Mission, overlap with existing behaviors and choose 4 – 6 of them from the work the team has done.
• Phase II – Checking the GF Values support the GF Mission and GF Vision
• Given your team has developed the GF Vision and GF Mission as a group, it is likely that there is some synergy between what behaviors you need to achieve your GF Mission and individuals’ values.
• If there are few or no synergies then you have to ask yourself as the Leader of this process how you are going to establish training to develop the behaviors you need or how your are going to get different people on the team that can deliver to the GF Mission and GF Vision.
• Phase III – Benchmark the GF Values with the organization’s overall values
• Ensure that GF’s Values fit with the organization’s values. As noted previously, if your GF Mission and GF Vision are congruent with the organization’s vision and mission,
• it is highly unlikely you will have any conflict around your GF Values.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

Step 5 - Goals

Phase I - Two types of goals

It’s critical to ask yourselves what key milestones would help you realize your GF Mission. So, if your GF Mission is:

“To be the most innovative and successful Group Fitness destination in our suburb/city/region”.

1. Your 5-10 year goal may be:

“To have overall class attendance at 85% capacity with commitment from Management to build a new GF studio by XXXX”.

2. Your Year 1 goal on the path to achieving the 5-10 year goal could be:

“To achieve a 10% increase in weekly GF attendance.”

Each year, you will revise your annual goals to meet your 5-10 year goal(s) to ensure all your actions fit with your plan!

Phase II – Generating your 5-10 year goal(s)

Together with the team, pick up your post-its and come up with some stretch goals for GF. Key areas to consider for defining stretch goals could be:

1. Weekly GF attendance

2. Weekly GF attendance as %age of total weekly attendance

3. New memberships generated per annum by GF

4. Percentage of studio capacity utilized (during the week versus the weekend)

5. Number of programs launched and regularity of re-launches

6. Number of instructors per program

7. Number of instructors recruited, trained and retained each year

8. Profile of your GF activities in the media e.g. radio, TV, press – measured by what

articles/interviews you’ve secured

Once you’ve shared your ideas on goals, agree as a group which stretch goal grabs the team as being both possible yet very challenging.

Vision, Mission, Values and Goals

HOW 2

Phase III – Create shorter term goals that will contribute to the overall GF goal(s)

It’s critical to identify and track shorter term goals that fit with achieving this 5-10 year goal, for example:

Year 1:

“To achieve a 10% increase in weekly GF attendance.”

Here the Year 1 goal to increase GF weekly attendance by 10%, builds towards the 85% capacity targeted in the 5-10 year goal and also demonstrates GF success. This success could support a case to Management to build a new GF studio by year XXXX, as noted in the 5-10 year goal.

With this in mind, grab your post-it notes and pens and generate Year 1 goal(s) using the same process and the same 8 key areas you considered to create your 5-10 year goal(s).

When you have determined your Year 1 goal(s) with the team, create quarterly and then monthly targets which drive towards achieving the Year 1 goal.

For example, each yearly plan may include specific internal promotions for certain months to drive up attendance. Further, you may incentivize members to bring a buddy to classes at key points in the calendar. Or you may plan re-launches for both retention benefits and to create new membership sales in chosen quarters.

At the end of Year 1, evaluate your progress against your Year 1 goal(s) and then set next year’s goal(s). Then for Year 2, plan what actions are required each month and quarter to meet that Year 2 goal and repeat each year.

Phase IV – Benchmark against the organizations overall goals

Review your 5-10 year goal(s) and establish if they are synergistic with your organizations overall goals. As your goals will focus on incrementally creating sustained improvement in GF, it is unlikely your GF goal(s) will be at odds with the overall organization goals.

Step 6 - Create your Coach

Please fill in the blank boxes with your vision, mission, values and goals!

Blow up this diagram and put it on the wall. Take it in turns to read this out loud during every team meeting to make sure it “lives”. Celebrate it and have it where everyone can see it. Benchmark every decision against whether it fits your Coach and party when you meet goals!

Your Coach must be with your team every day to make a difference to your working lives and the health and fitness of your members.

Good luck!
