Mission statements are directly proportionate to the vision of the organisation, and thus individual divisions and teams. While defining vision is mostly a singular effort, mission statements can be a collective one.
It’s important that the people who are on the mission are able to relate to each statement and feel the drive to execute them!
When building Mission Statements, a leader must:
— Engage the core team-members in drafting (not copy-pasting from competitors). These team-members must also be great influencers and should know the pulse of the organisation and other members.
— Be open to creating multiple drafts before finalising. No harm in reconsidering the Mission when it must equate with the Strategy.
