Who doesn’t cringe when they hear that an organization they’re a part of has hired a consultant to lead them through an exercise to draft their vision/mission statement? What comes out of most of these exercises is shelved soon after the ink dries on the document. I think words are powerful and these existential statements have incredible utility. In this talk I share my 18 year journey wrestling with this challenge, what I’ve learned, mistakes I’ve made, the framework we’ve settled on, and the value we get on a daily basis from this work.
