Achieve Your Mission Statement by Using it Daily in Business and at Work


A few weeks ago, I attended the YWCA of the Greater Capital Region‘s Annual Resourceful Women awards. In addition to colleagues who were honored (Anne Saile, George Hearst IIIMichael Fanning, Kelli Arnold and Joella Viscusi) and those who inspired us all with their speeches, lifting up the wonderful women in their organizations (Jon Briccetti and Corey Jamison, among others), I was further impressed during this already-impressive event by how my colleague Daquetta Jones, the YWCA’s Executive Director, paused during the proceedings to ask everyone at the luncheon to recite the YWCA’s Mission Statement together:

YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, Inc. is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Ashley Jeffrey Bouck, our mutual colleague also in attendance at the luncheon (I’m a member of Ashley’s Board) and the Executive Director of Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region, carries a related mission standard for her organization:

Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold.

In small and large ways: mission-driven, step by step, individually and together, we have, we do and we will.

Both organizations – and many others, in all sectors – use their mission and vision statements daily as the compass steering them respectively in achieving their strategic goals.

How do you achieve your organization’s mission statement (and strategic goals and vision) by using it daily, in business and at work?
