As stated on 7 reasons Your Company Needs a Clear, Written Mission Statement by Glenn Smith- smart business owners use mission statement to remind their teams why their company exists because this is what makes the company successful. The mission statement serves as a “North Star” that keeps everyone clear on the direction of the organization. And as Andy Stanley says, “It’s your direction, not your intention that determines your destination.”
The ability to visualize and articulate a possible future state for an organization or company has always been a vital component of successful leadership. Visioning generates a common goal, hope, and encouragement; offers a possibility for fundamental change; gives people a sense of control; gives a group something to move toward; and generates creative thinking and passion. The famous book “Built to Last” by Jerry Porras and Jim Collins, said that many companies who stood the test of time have all these. The authors call them visionary companies. Visionary Companies however are not defined merely by the statements they post on the wall, they are defined by the way they live up to the company’s mission, vision and core values.
Last September 27, 2017, we helped the organizers of PAPPI or Philippine Association of Pharmacists in the Pharmaceutical Industry create their Vision-Mission and Core Values. This learning event was facilitated by Mr. Edwin Ebreo.
The aim of this program is to aid companies in crafting their set of statements and identify ways and means to live by it.
This program offers the following Learning Objectives:
