When you are asked “What do you do for a living?” what is your response? If you respond with your position title and a brief overview of your responsibilities, you’ve missed the boat! Ask a WalMart employee what they do, and they may respond “I help people save money so they can live better.” We need to learn from companies such as WalMart that ensure their vision is ingrained in every employee and agency decision. Learn just how important your agency mission and vision statement is, and how everyone needs to make mission based decisions with vision outcomes in mind.
