Should Mission Statements Be Mission Questions?

Should Mission Statements Be Mission Questions? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Whether or not the mission statement is phrased as a question, it should be subject to constant questioning:

 

Does it still make sense today?

 

Are we, as a company, still living up to it (if we ever did)?

 

Is the mission growing and pulling us forward?

 

And lastly, Are we all on this mission together?

donhornsby's curator insight, January 27, 8:16 AM

(From the article): Whether mission questions come from throughout the ranks or are posed by leaders themselves, the point is to keep asking, What are we doing? Why are we doing it? How might we do it better? As Shaich says, “Figuring out what you want to accomplish is a continual search— and questions are the means to the search.”

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 20, 6:46 PM

Good leadership is a critical part of organizational health but a big, unresolved issue is what sort of leadership behavior organizations should encourage to fare well in the future. Is leadership so contextual that it defies standard definitions or development approaches?


According to a McKinsey study four kinds of behavior account for 89 percent of leadership effectiveness.



Ian Berry's curator insight, January 21, 5:55 PM

In the absence of a definition of leadership Here's mine from  20+ years ago that still works for my clients - Leadership is the art of inspiring people to bring everything remarkable that they are (that one-of-a-kind that each of is) to everything they do. Leadership must operate in harmony with management. I define management as the practice of making it simple for people to bring everything remarkable that they are to everything we do.

Storytelling is the key to any delivery. Great stories trump content any day. Get off the bench and out there and find your stories to engage your team to higher performance.

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, January 26, 12:47 PM

The best leaders are definitely story-tellers?

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 27, 1:53 AM

Powerful stories are told with conviction and the most powerful are often told on the basis of personal experience. 


Learning to articulate your powerful personal learning experiences as stories will not only help you to reflect on your learning and therefore make it more powerful, but also help you share your learning with others and influence them to take action.  Leadership indeed!

The smartest teams were distinguished by three characteristics:

1) members contributed more equally

2) members were better able to read complex emotional states

3) women outperformed men

 

Future studies replicated the results, regardless for mode of interaction. 

 

Contemplative Dialogue can easily lead teams/families/communities to becoming "smart teams" and rediscover one another and our great human capacities.
