Live Production - Ethos Vision & Mission

Posted on March 12th, 2017

I wrote this page about what my team would look like last spring when I was considering the request to lead the Troy Production Department. I'm reviewing it again this month now that I've hired the final member of my staff. I'm grateful for each of them; and for all of our incredible volunteers. Here's to a great season of thriving in ethos, mission, and vision as we push through our busiest part of the year these next couple months...

Ethos:
  • Commitment
    • time, task, tidy
    • excellence and thoroughness
  • Optimism
    • joy, hope
  • Service
    • we will never let someone else do a task without helping
    • grab the seat of least honor; walk the extra mile
  • Adaptability
    • flexible at any moment
  • Passion
    • zero cynicism, but rather zeal for the privilege of serving together
  • Apprenticeship
    • as leaders we always have someone with us that we’re training in the way
  • Beauty
    • we will be artisans
    • with excellence and authenticity we will present ourselves and our craft to target the subconscious
    • we will strive beyond the how and execute our craft for the why

Vision:
Realize great beauty
as the local body of Christ
through the context of Live Production


Mission:
Support and enhance art and communication
to help people engage with God



Likeable people choose their words

Posted on February 15th, 2016

"The words you use impact the attitude of others.

"For example, you don't have to go to a meeting; you get to go meet with other people. You don't have to create a presentation for a new client; you get to share cool stuff with other people. You don't have to go to the gym; you get to work out and improve your health and fitness.You don't have to interview job candidates; you get to select a great person to join your team.

"We all want to associate with happy, enthusiastic, fulfilled people. The words you choose can help other people feel better about themselves--and make you feel better about yourself, too."


I read this thought shared in an article on inc.com by Jeff Haden. This is #9 from his list of "11 things that exceptionally likeable people do"
