I guess I ever fully understood the differences among Vision, Values and Mission. Here’s my take in a week that won’t end! 🙂
Vision/Leadership is about our business, iColor Studio, where we see ourselves in the market, the future, our intuition, new innovations.
Values is also about our business, iColor Studio. Describing our core values, what makes us tick, trust, ethics, what we stand for. What makes customers partner with us. How we contribute to the world, the web.
Mission is about YOU, our customer. What we can do for you. What makes us get up in the morning.
iColor Studio has been in business since 1999 and I never wrote a formal mission state, value statement or a vision. I thought it was a waste of time. I don’t think that way anymore. Our clients and potential clients should know some riveteing things about us. What sets us apart from others.
I started the new year off and have been taking a daily Mind Valley course (https://www.mindvalley.com) which has made me think on a deeper level about a lot of things. And there are a lot of things you may not know about us! It’s a 45 day commitment. I’ll report my findings and “aha” moments in a few weeks.
VALUES/72 hour a day/15 days a week
Well, we like to have fun. We love it when our customers enjoy our sense of fun. We at iColor Studio are about very strong business ethics, commitment to our clients’ business health and growth. That’s a 72 hour a day/15 days a week pledge from us. We eat, think, drink and sleep on new innovative ideas for our clients. The web is ever evolving and so we have had to join that wave. Makes for interesting work for sure. Dashboards, more dashboards, for assisting us in these tasks. If we cheat anyone, it’s ourselves, never a client. We have set a tough act to follow in terms of being ahead of the curve, especially in the SEO world.
We literally (and our clients can attest to this) are on the lookout for new avenues, new markets that are right under their noses. Since 1988, I have dealt with over 16,800,000 colors on the Mac and yet I can’t pick out a new color for my mailbox! I let others help me with that. I know my limitations. Yet, I LOVE selecting colors, brands, designing logos, etc. for our customers. Been doing it since 1988 on the Mac without the help of rubber cement and X-acto knives!
We are also about serving others and have been a proud supporter of New Kid Hungry for five years.
