You May Get

Mission & Vision

Based upon your answers your team is most likely stuck because it is missing a strong Mission & Vision.Mission & Vision answers the question: "Why do we exist?" It is your purpose. It is what you hope to achieve and the thing your team works together to make a reality. It is also your inspiration. It generates passion for what you do. Without Mission & Vision team members feel hopeless. Without TOM's Shoes' "one-for-one (matching every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need), TOM's is just a shoe store. And while shoes are necessary--most people are not willing to give their lives for shoes. "Without vision, the people perish." Without mission and vision people die inside. Lots of things may be getting done, but there is little passion and little drive. Think--Zombies or automatons.What you can do:Write a mission statement. Put it on everything and communicate it to everyone.Write out your vision statement. Your vision statement is your "I Have a Dream" speech. Once you have written it out, turn your vision statement into memorable sound bites that inspire people. Then make sure that you use a few of those sound bites in every interaction with people in your organization: at meetings, at coffee, in casual conversation.Click here to learn more about "What you need to know about Vision & Mission."

Strategy

Based upon your answers your team is most likely stuck because it is missing a strong Strategy.A strategy is simply a series of steps with an end in mind. If Mission & Vision define WHY you exist your Strategy is HOW it is going to be achieved. It is the steps you take to fulfill your mission & vision. Without a clearly defined strategy, teams feel directionless. Without a strategy people are often busy, but rarely effective. There is no big picture to guide what to do. Think--chickens running around with their heads cut off. Worse still, when there is no strategy team members can become highly territorial because they can't see how what they do, the program they create, or the team they lead fits into the overall picture. So they must defend it against threats from the outside--like that Senior Adults Sunday School Class. Think--a dog fiercely guarding its toys.What you can do:Determine which programs/events in your ministry are your 3 most important and make them more important than everything else.Help your programs/events play well together. Map out how your programs/events relate to each other and how they help fulfill your Mission & Vision. ​Click here to learn more about "What you need to know about Strategy."
