What's in a Mission Statement
Jun 21, 2018
Great mission statements guide and help unify organizations, and go hand-in-hand with the corporate culture. Your team looks at your mission statement as a guideline for business strategy and long-term planning to accomplish your goals. Consumers look to your mission statement to tell them if you are the kind of organization they want to have a relationship with. If done right, a mission statement can inspire loyalty, and even transform your business.
A mission statement is most effective when you impart its message to your team - and when they align their actions with the mission’s vision.The process of carrying out the actions implied with the words begins with your actions. Everything you do can ultimately reflect the values, purpose and enthusiasm behind your company's mission statement. An impactful statement can serve as a reminder of why you founded your business, and a mission statement worthy of memorization can guide you for years to come.
Recently, at the 2018 9Round World Convention, it was announced to Franchise Partners and team members that the company is rolling out a new mission statement to reflect the goals of every team member and a promise to every 9Round member.
