Early in my tenure at Shadowbox Farms, the company was embarking on the difficult task of establishing its mission, vision and values. I was lucky enough to be invited to help guide the process. We first brought the whole team to together to brainstorm what was important to our young company. Then we formed a committee that ultimately owned the responsibility. The experience was rewarding as the team worked hard and gave the process the respect it deserved. After all, this would be the foundation for the company going forward.
Last week we introduced our newly crafted mission, vision and values during an all-staff meeting at our farm in Williams, Oregon. It felt the like the appropriate setting for such an important moment in our company’s history. That day we established that we would be “stewards of the cannabis industry,” guided by values, and driven to create a world-class company that would lead the industry and set new standards.
