I really appreciate your reflection on vision. I would add that in my place we have both a mission and a vision statement. I find that it is our mission statement that serves as the place of buy in and team building. I think a key factor in utilizing these types of unifying statements is that the statements are focused, but also have room for the system to evolve in conversation with the mission/vision statements with out having to constantly change the actual language of the statement. Our mission statement is “To provide Hope and Healing to every life we touch.” That statement has a lot of room, in my opinion, to engage the system as it grows.
