Mission statement

Mission statement creation & consultancy

What is a mission or vision statement?

Whilst some use the term 'mission statement' to refer to current ways of working, and 'vision statement' to refer to future direction, they're often used interchangeably.

With my mission statement consultancy, I help both start-ups and blue-chip companies to define their vision of the future, and subsequently to clear anything blocking it.

Why is a mission statement important?

Once we've defined your vision clearly then you can work on the practical, 'how do we do things day to day' aspects and bring the whole company into alignment with it.

I like to use the analogy of an old ship with oarsman and sails of the sort used in ancient Greece. Without plotting a course the ship has no clear direction. 

It's only once the ship's captain has clearly defined the direction and shared that with the oarsmen and crew, that everyone knows what they need to do.

Those that are in alignment with the direction, i.e. those who want to go there and have the right attitude, can all start to pull in the same direction.

Moreover, the people or parts of the ship that aren't fit for purpose, that aren't in alignment will then become clearer and can be developed, replaced, or upgraded.

With a clear vision, the day-to-day can be easily defined; processes, values, structures, and rewards that all align to the achievement of it.

The result is an entire organisation or department where everyone and everything is working as an efficient unit, together and united towards a common goal.

Why me?

  • I've helped many entrepreneurs, business leaders and organisations successfully define and live their mission statement or life purpose.
  • Whilst there are many consultants who'll help you define your mission and values, there are few who understand life purpose.
  • You can think of your organisation's life purpose as being a mission statement which also answers the following key questions:
    • Why are we doing this?
    • What difference are we really here to make?
  • Every company has a life purpose and I'll intuitively help you unearth yours.
  • As with people, finding and living the life purpose of your organisation is to fulfill its full potential, and its the most amazing journey you can go on.

How long does it take to define an organisation's mission statement or life purpose?

I deliver this service as an initial two to three-hour session to elicit your organisations purpose, followed up by two 1-hour sessions to help you start to come into alignment with it.
