Mission & Vision

KFP 4: Mission and Vision

A resilient organisation knows the direction that it is travelling in. Its mission and vision are clearly defined and communicated to workforce, engendering a sense of collective ownership and belonging. A mission defines an organisation’s aims and objectives and how it approaches them, while a vision sets out the organisation’s desired future. Co-producing and communicating a clear mission and vision is the fourth Key Foundational Principle; this is where:

  • Leaders are committed to a clear mission and vision, and use their communication skills to consult with and motivate others.
  • Leaders are optimistic but realistic and focus on continuous improvement, inspiring staff to identify what ‘good’ looks like and how this can be achieved.
  • Change is managed sensitively and effectively, and time for consolidation and stability is prioritised.
