Strategy - The positioning and actions taken by an organization, in response to or anticipation of changes in the external environment, intended to achieve competitive advantage.
Mission - When you know who you are as an organization, it defines you. That identity becomes the stable footing for anyone choosing to come aboard and journey with you.
Your mission must clearly demonstrate alignment between your organization and its people. When it does it will resonate in the hearts and minds of your employees and motivate them to purposeful, results-oriented action.
Vision - The vision is the compass that sets your direction, tells you the course. Like a nautical map it draws a clear picture to where you are headed, and what it will look like when you arrive. When you have a clear vision, one that sets a proper course, your employees will follow.
Values - Your values inform culture. They embody the work environment and establish an informal code of conduct that employees recognize and outsiders see exemplified. Core values must be more than a list of phrases displayed on the wall. They are the anchors that keep you steady when the waters are especially choppy. Leaders are challenged everyday to inspire employees to conduct themselves accordingly no matter how difficult the course.
