Leading through challenges requires honest conversations, resiliency, and a positive outlook. Currently, leaders are facing pressure to make difficult decisions regarding the health and safety of their communities. Recommendations are uncertain and ever-changing. In episodes 93 and 94 we heard Waukesha County Government leaders explain how they’re collaborating with schools in their community. This week, Superintendent Corey Golla, who leads a school district in Waukesha County, joins us to discuss how his team is managing the urgency and uncertainty around returning to school. Listen as Corey describes how his team incorporates Lean thinking and reviewing key questions to reduce risk and avoid the check-off.

  • How can leaders plan to successfully collaborate with other organizations?
  • What metrics are important to measure right now? 
  • How can leaders feel confident in their decision-making despite what the future will hold for schools in 2020 and beyond?
