Today’s Tip

A mission statement explains what your business is trying to achieve.

For internal decision-making, it helps as key decisions should be made with regards to how well they help the company progress in achieving its mission.

Also, for internal (e.g., employees) audiences, the mission can inspire and get them excited to be part of what the company is doing.

Some great examples of mission statements include the following:

  • Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
  • Kiva’s mission is to connect people, through lending, for the sake of alleviating poverty.

Having a great mission statement can help guide your company and inspire employees to perform their best.
