The mission statement

The mission statement

Short and sweet, a mission statement sums up the core of who your company is and why it exists. They are typically succinct, only a sentence or two. They are inspiring and not boring.

When done right, the company’s mission statement acts as a powerful driver that informs every aspect of your organization, from daily operations, to customer loyalty, to employee satisfaction.

Mission vs Vision Statement

A vision statement is aspirational. It outlines where your company strives to be in the future — whether that is one year from now or ten. In contrast, a mission statement spells out where your company is right now.

Think of your company’s vision statement as a long-term goal post. The end point towards which you are working. If your vision statement is a goal post, then your mission statement is what drives you toward that goal post.

How to get to the magical Mission Statement

Brainstorm as a team and discuss based on a few questions. Aim for a short paragraph on each question.

  • Why does our company exist?
  • What value do our products or services bring to consumers?
  • What core beliefs guide our work?
  • What makes our company different, better, or more inspiring than our competitors?

Once you have one (or more versions of the) mission statement run it check it against these criteria:

  • Plausibility: make sure it ties back to your everyday business operations.
  • Readability: No corporate speak or jargon.
  • Voice: Use language that is active and compelling.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
