School Leadership Reimagined -Makeover Show: The Vision and Mission Statement Edition

EPISODE 56

Makeover Show: The Vision and Mission Statement Edition 

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • The purpose of your vision and mission is to drive the work of your school. If you can’t remember your vision or state your mission by memory, there’s a good chance that neither of them are driving anything.
  • Your vision and mission could really function as one sentence -- vision “because” mission. If your vision and mission do not fit that structure, then it may be time for a makeover. 
  • ​If you are not inspired by your vision and mission, no one else will be.

We make over a lot of vision and mission statements here at Mindsteps and today, I want to let you in on 2 of the biggest mistakes I see school leaders make when it comes to their vision and mission statements.

I'll also share a few examples of these mistakes and show you how to quickly correct them so that you have a vision and mission statement you can actually use to drive the work of your school. If you think vision and mission statements are boring, then you're probably making these same mistakes yourself.

Tune in to find out how to transform your vision and mission statements and unleash their hidden power to ignite passion, give focus and meaning to your work, and ultimately help you achieve more for your school than you've ever imagined. All this happens when you make over your vision and mission statements #LikeABuilder.
