Discover Your WHY
Discover Your WHY
Your WHY is the heart of your company, what you stand for, and ultimately, what determines your success.
The important part of discovering your WHY is finding the meaning in what you do by defining why you do what you do. It is the fundamental belief that inspires visions and drives actions!
When you work from your WHY, you are coming from a place bigger than the products you sell, the services you provide, and profit you reap. Simply, you are driven by a purpose that gives meaning and value to your business.
Identifying your WHY starts with a simple question: “What matters to me most?”
Once you identify your WHY, you can start making wiser, purposeful decisions and goals that cultivate teamwork and give you a clear idea of where your company is headed. It is also helpful in aligning everything under one purpose which allows you to work with a singular mission and concentrated focus.
Meet, Mollie Bond - “I will help you find your WHY!”
You know when women who work at a nonprofit feel stuck? I coach women individually feel stuck in their careers to ensure they are reaching their personal definition of success through my business, Nonprofits on a Mission. I stay current in the nonprofit sector in my role as a director of development operations at a health and human services nonprofit and as a board member of Providence Heights. When I'm not at work, I'm writing on my blog, molliebond.wordpress.com or crocheting more Christmas gifts.
Creating Your WHY
Creating a clear, simple, actionable statement that encapsulates your purpose and your mission in one brief, all-inclusive sentence is the basis for your internal and external communications, your marketing campaign, community efforts, and your decision making. (It is often also the make-it or break-it moment for a potential like-minded client or customer!)
Many businesses market based on promoting what their brands, products, or services do, as well as how they created them. However, marketing from your WHY informs your customer about why you have created your vision. It is with the WHY that you tell a unique story, and that is what sets your brand apart.
Do not leave your WHY open to interpretation. Just as your customer should be informed as well as every member of your team (from executive level to entry-level) should be able to clearly and comfortably talk about your company’s purpose and mission. (Bonus points if your WHY is able to be memorized and proudly recited by all of your team members!)
This means staying engaged in the daily performance of your company and staying close to the people who make your vision possible. Get inspired by being inspiring!
