Mission, Vision, Values

What

• Helping your company define—or redefine—why it does business
• Your mission, vision, and values set top-level priorities, which orient everything else. So they should matter. They should excite your stakeholders. And they should offer something meaningful to your clients and community by leveraging the things you do best.

How

• Reframing your value proposition to articulate a mindful mission
• Defining the shared values that give your people their purpose
• Charting a new vision that shows how you'll achieve your mission and live out your values through concrete goals and relationships.

Deliverable

• Concise mission and vision statements, which are compelling to internal and external audiences
• These statements will provide key reference points for coherently living out your organization's shared values.

Social Responsibility Alignment

What

• Assessing the fit between your organization's mission and its current CSR efforts in order to identify new ways to maximize the social impact of your business
• This evaluation will return to your unique competitive advantage to identify innovative ways for enhancing and extending the social value you already provide to those outside your organization.

How

• Identifying the values that motivate your company's outreach
• Defining the relationship between social responsibility and your core business
• Formulating a custom framework for social responsibility in light of your mission and vision
• Outlining future opportunities for your business to make substantive, organic contributions to the common good.

Deliverable

• A presentation that summarizes how your organization's current social impact aligns with its core competencies, values, and business commitments, along with an outline of specific, actionable steps for making your organization more responsive and responsible
• Recommendations will help you adopt intrinsic forms of social responsibility, which return value to the community in the process of producing it.

Employee Engagement

What

• Analyzing how well your company promotes the flourishing of its employees by challenging them to contribute their talent and effort to a mission they believe in
• This analysis will provide targeted guidance for fostering a culture in which people see the value of their work in terms of its significance for both colleagues and customers.

How

• Fact-finding with key leaders to identify and evaluate how your company offers meaningful work to its employees
• Interviewing and surveying people across the organization to understand what they find most significant about their work and to discover where they lack purpose, conviction, and commitment
• Identifying concrete, collective ways forward in building a culture of energetic collaboration.

Deliverable

• A presentation that summarizes how you already get buy-in from employees and outlining specific avenues for improving engagement
• Recommendations will focus on connecting employees to those who benefit from their work, providing means for employees to acknowledge the value of other team members, and affording greater flexibility for employees to express their gifts and values within their assigned roles.

Leadership Development

What

• Gathering leaders from your organization to examine the link between their values, their management decisions, and what their work will ultimately offer others
• This opportunity to explore big questions of mutual concern will refresh and refocus decision-makers while equipping them to lead with vision and purpose.

How

• Reading brief, hand-selected texts on finding your center in business
• Discussing those texts in moderated conversations
• Identifying tangible, personal takeaways for life-giving, compassionate leadership.

Deliverable

• A retreat-style experience—hosted either at your organization or offsite—designed to give participants new perspective on why their work matters and what their legacies might look like
• Half-day, full-day, or three-day options are available.
