Does everybody know your mission statement?
If I ask ten of your employees what your mission statement is, how many different answers will I receive?
And how different will they be from your answer?
Use your mission statement
Your mission statement is a tool. Use it.
I am aware that many people see it as a form of PR, a “nice to have”, or even a crowd-pleasing waste of time.
Next time you feel that your team lacks productivity, or you are not sure who to hire, know that a mission statement is the first step in resolving all these issues.
Your people will trust you more
“Mission statements help employees see the positive aspects of their daily activities, boosting morale and creating long-term employee investment in the workplace culture.”
This quote is from Indeed.com – and it is telling that a hiring website writes about mission statements.
Your team will trust you more because they know they are part of something real and long-term.
You will trust your people more
The mission is the motivation behind the business as a whole.
Once people know that they will be able to make more decisions and fix more problems. In other words, they will be able to get more done without needing your input for every single thing.
With everybody onboard, you will be able to let them get to work and know they are doing the right things. Allowing you to work ON your business for a change.
Does everybody in your business know your mission statement? If not, it’s time to schedule a 30-minute discovery call.
