I sing with the Gwinnett Choral Guild, and I’m a member of the Strategic Planning Committee. We’ve been meeting recently to flesh out our mission and vision statements.
You’d think it wouldn’t be that complicated. But what, after all, are we really about? Singing, of course. Musical excellence. Community.
How, though, do we craft those essential statements? How do we agree where we are and where we’re going?
Bees don’t have that problem.
· Mission – honey and pollen.
· Vision – survival of the hive.
Hmmm. I want more than food and survival. And I’m pretty sure the whole GCG will want more than that as well.
So, in this, I guess we people don’t have to emulate the bees.
