Mastering Your Mission Statement (BURST)

How to Craft a Mission Statement that Elevates Your Brand Story and Inspires Your Talent
(BURST Workshop)

Virtual Workshop Description
A mission statement needs to be exciting and memorable to get investment and buy-in from the team. But most businesses have a mission statement that isn’t working. Instead of inspiring action, it’s being ignored.

When a company’s mission statement and guiding principles are simple and memorable, they are more likely to be acted on and the mission is more likely to be completed. Unfortunately, too many organizations fill their mission statements with so much jargon and inside language that any impact is lost and the mission often forgotten by your teams, resulting in misaligned or lackluster messaging and performance.

This virtual interactive workshop provides both individual contributors, managers, and business leaders with an easy-to-understand framework to create or improve their ‘Guiding Principles’ that include the Mission Statement, Key Characteristics, and Critical Actions – with the end goal of increasing team alignment and engagement, and inspiring productivity.

Participants will learn to hone their Mission Statement for impact through teaching, brainstorming, and creation. They will leave with an understanding of how to craft an effective mission statement that they can bring back to their organizations and take action on immediately.
