Mike Boyes, the founder and President of Credo Consulting, digs into the foundational question: “What is the purpose of your business?” Listen in as we discuss why it is vital to articulate and embrace the purpose of your business. If you haven’t already articulated your company’s mission or purpose, this discussion delves into why this is a problem you need to fix.
-“Your business is a delivery channel for doing something that God wants done on this earth.”
-What is your unique role in fulfilling God’s mission?
-If your main mission is to make money then your work and your business can quickly lose purpose, meaning and direction. This is especially true in times of crisis.
-God tells Joshua to “Be strong and courageous.” Why? Because the work is going to be hard and filled with challenges and obstacles. Purpose fuels our progress through challenges and over obstacles.
-If your business doesn’t have a clear and guiding mission statement, consider making the creation of one a top priority.
-One definition of intelligence is the capacity to solve problems. But we first have to define the problem to solve (what’s the mission?) lest we end up with a rudderless organization.
