What your Mission Statement Says About You

0 Comments

What is a mission statement, exactly, and why do we need one? It is one of the four primary characteristics of a successful organization. It helps define who your organization is in addressing your company’s purpose, business goals, and values. These three statements should make up your mission statement and help to thoroughly characterize who you and your company are and what your goals are, as well:

Purpose Statement– What does your organization seek to accomplish? What do you want the ultimate result of your work to be? Why does this company exist? This shows that you know exactly where you are headed and are focused.

A purpose statement also typically includes these two phrases:

  • A problem or condition to be changed is identified.
  • A statement, such as to decrease, to increase, to eliminate, to prevent, etc..

Business Statement– This outlines the programs or activities your organization does in order to execute its purpose. What is your company going to do to accomplish your purpose?

Often the phrase “to provide” is used when creating a business statement with the addition of “through” or “by”. Make sure to only include the ideas that are the most important and vital to your company’s purpose. This shows that you are goal seeking and shows exactly what you will do in order to accomplish your goal.

Values Statement– What values do you and the people you hire have in common? What is the core to your organization’s beliefs? This will guide you in aspects from your every day endeavors, to when your company is struggling and needs a guiding light. Showing your values in your mission statement shows that you work for the people instead of yourself, which builds trust and credibility.

Some of these values may include, for example:

  • Diversity
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Innovation
  • Dedication to excellent services.. etc.

Aside from the three statements mentioned above as to what should make up your mission statement, it is wise to ask yourself the following:

  • What makes you and your company stand out from the rest and be unique in its quality, services, etc…?
  • What need or problem is your organization trying to solve or address?
  • Who benefits from the outcome of your work, and why are they important?

In establishing a strong mission statement, your company can spearhead into a future of productivity, satisfaction, and overall morale. Your potential employees will see that you are a business first, know exactly what you stand for before considering working for you, and determine whether or not he/she and your company are a proper match. Your current employees will find the drive and motivation they need in order to provide the most adequate service for you and your clients while establishing a strong relationship with your organization.

Employee Performance Improvement Through Spaced Repetition Learning

How Spaced Repetition Learning Can Improve Employee Performance

Companies spend a tremendous amount of money in an effort to increase employee performance. Many business executives have concluded the minimal results of performance improvement training are not worth the investment. Employees overwhelmingly agree with this conclusion. The lack of spaced repetition learning in business training programs contributes to lackluster results.

Performance training programs are one-time events. Employees are expected to use techniques taught in these programs to improve performance. Unfortunately, after 90 days of training, most employees have forgotten many of the techniques they were taught. Learning through spaced repetition is the key to increase and improve employee performance.

Since kindergarten, children have learned skills such as reading, writing, and arithmetic. Children are taught using spaced repetition. For example, before learning to read, children learn the alphabet. They practice reciting the alphabet and then learn to write the letters. Eventually, they are taught to formulate small words. Through practice and repetition, children learn to read and write.

Since adults are educated throughout childhood with this method, learning through spaced repetition is highly effective. Employees are exposed to performance techniques gradually and the techniques are reinforced through repetition. Eventually, the techniques become second nature such as reading and writing.

University studies demonstrate that students forget approximately 45 percent of the information they are taught 90 days after they have taken a course. For example, if a student takes a beginning Spanish course, he or she will not retain the use of the language unless he or she continues to use the language on a regular basis. Learning through spaced repetition is critical to the retention of information.

Spaced repetition is now incorporated in many business-training programs. Whether the training is dedicated to performance improvement, leadership training or sales training, the key to success is spaced repetition. The training is conducted over a period of a few months rather than a few days. Concepts are reinforced until the concepts become productive habits.

Initially, business leaders are apprehensive in using a method such as spaced repetition due to the length of the training and expense. However, the remarkable results achieved through this type of training quickly convince business leaders it is worth the investment.

In today’s competitive economy, business owners and corporate executive leadership teams are incorporating spaced repetition learning to improve employee performance and increase business growth. This type of training is becoming a business standard and leadership teams have realized the incredible benefits this training provides.

While many corporations and businesses still use traditional training methods, spaced repetition training is gradually replacing traditional training. Learning through spaced repetition garners the results business leaders are seeking. In addition, the training is cost-effective and the results of the training warrant the expense.

Spaced repetition learning is not a new concept; however, it is not a concept that was widely used in the business world. However, industry leaders recognize the value of this training and it is quickly becoming a standard training method in the business world. It is now widely used to improve employee performance and to develop future leaders of companies.

Triton Theroy utilizes spaced repetition as a primary methodology for employee training. Florida businesses can give us a call at 954-376-3767 and allow us to explain how we can improve your company’s efficiency, productivity and employee effectiveness through our training techniques.

Program’s that Improve Employee Performance – Hype or Fact?

Employee Performance Training, Is it Worth It?

It would depend upon who you ask and the method employed. Indeed, organizations that benefit from performance improvement programs start as hopeful disciples, but eventually become evangelists. Unfortunately, not all programs get long-term results. A frequent complaint among executives is not that improvement programs fail to get results, they do get results; however, the results are not sustained. The explanation for this difference…spaced repetition.

Spaced Repetition

For whatever the reason, there is a frequently held misconception regarding how performance improvement should occur. Many executives have concluded that improvement programs should be a “one-and-done” process. However, there is no evidence that supports this methodology in any of life’s rigors. Whether driving a car, playing an instrument, learning math or language arts, they all take sustained repetition to achieve proficiency and mastery. The great masters of sports and entertainment spend countless hours performing repetitive exercises to hone their talents. The repetitive process is paramount in becoming “best-of-breed.” So why should individual and organizational improvement be any different?
