Have You Kicked That Sacred Cow to the Curb Yet?

It's been a couple of years since I last talked about kicking sacred cows to the curb.

Have you had any success in dropping your sacred cows?

The past four years, with the economy and our chamber budgets, has given us the perfect opportunity to review our program of work and drop those programs that don't make sense anymore.

And the reasons could be:

  • No value to members;
  • Nobody attends; or
  • It loses money.

Let's get back to focusing on what our boards want us to do and get rid of those losers that just drain the resources of our chamber.

I strongly suggest that you look at all your programs at your next annual retreat and prioritize your program of work and kick those sacred cows to the curb.

Stop trying to be all things to all people, nobody benefits from that strategy!
