ACTING ON THE “STOP DOING” CONCEPT
I have been fortunate to connect with highly skilled volunteers and collaborators to support Ballethnic’s mission. This collaboration has allowed me the space to act on the “stop doing” concept. In past years, I often longed for the kind of space and opportunity that “stopping doing” would have allowed, however Ballethnic did not always have the staffing or volunteer base to support this. I am excited to say that now, with the work and generosity of amazing volunteers and staff, I am living out the power of “stop doing”.
What have we stopped doing? Anything that doesn’t contribute to building our capacity to attract and keep our audience!
As a result, I have been able to focus on our strategic direction leading up to our 30th anniversary in 2020 and concentrate on board development, our artistic direction and my own succession planning.
It’s too soon to report any concrete results in terms of numbers, but we fully expect that within the next 3-6 months we will be back to tell that next step in our story.
