Build and Grow an 'Involved' Corporate Culture

I think that there might be several ways or steps that could to be taken to have (followers) employee's become excited and enthused with change.
Most people are afraid for what they don't know, and worse yet, they don't understand.
To address this issue, I maintain that organizations need to establish an "organizational shared vision statement", a statement that everyone can understand, and possibly relate to.
If and when they are able to do this, they will be able to find ways to align their own personal development for career planning and many cases career alterations.
Multi career planning is fast becoming the process for all the change that is becoming our way of life today.
A shared vision that can be communicated throughout the whole organization, especially through a "dialogue" communication process can go a long way in approaching and growing a positive organizational / Institutional culture.
We become what is called a "learning organization", with a whole cadre of followers.
