A Mission Statement

Now that you have taken the time to identify some specific goals and some core values, the next step is to write out a mission statement. Think of the mission statement as a kind of personal constitution. Just as the US government uses the US Constitution as a guide toward decision-making, this mission statement can help to serve as your guide. This can be your own personal mission statement, but it is also helpful to work out a mission statement with your team. The most important step in making these mission statements is to identify what you truly value and understand why you have set particular goals, both for your team and for yourself. Keep in mind that the activities in this chapter are first steps, and a mission statement takes time to develop. Use these pointers to begin developing your goals, your values, and ultimately your mission and purpose, both professionally and personally.

 Until next time ...
