David Lee: Forging Ahead with the Most Right Thing in the Moment

In this special edition podcast about leadership during crisis, I chat with David Lee, CEO of ImagineMKE, an organization that supports Milwaukee's arts and culture sector. 

For David, leading with optimism means seeing clearly the obstacles ahead of you and even recognizing the possibility of failure, but forging ahead with the "most right thing you can do" at the moment.

And forging ahead during these uncertain times is exactly what David and his team have been doing. Within one week, they launched an emergency relief fund for artists, giving checks to over 100 artists in need over the past two weeks.

David shares with me his source of positivity as well as new behaviors his team has embraced that he hopes to maintain even after the coronavirus crisis is over.
