They are statements about how the organization will value customers, suppliers, and the internal community. Value statements describe actions that are the living enactment of the fundamental values held by most individuals within the organization.
What is Vision ?
Vision is a concept of the organization wants to become and what values it wants to exist by. The vision should resonate with all members of the organization and help them feel proud, excited, and part of something much bigger than themselves. A vision should stretch the organization’s capabilities and image of itself. It gives shape and direction to the organization’s future
What is Mission ?
Mission/Purpose is a precise description of what an organization does. It should describe the business the organization is in. It is a definition of “why” the organization exists currently. Each member of an organization should be able to verbally express this mission.

The process of whole system change begins with the personal commitment of the Leader and the leadership team to their own personal transformation. This is necessary Because the culture of the organization is a reflection of leadership consciousness. If you want transform the culture of your organization the leaders must transform or the leaders must change. Organisational transformation begins with the personal transformation of the leaders. A culture change initiative must be owned and personally supervised by the leader of An organisation, and fully supported by the leadership team. Cultural transformation is not something that can be delegated. It Is something that the organization has to do for itself and it is always ongoing: it is not a project,it is a process.
