In this special edition podcast about leadership during crisis, I interview Wendy Baumann, Chief Vision Officer for Wisconsin Women Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC). 

Wendy describes herself as being born not just a glass half full type of person, but as a glass almost completely spilling over. “I don’t need coffee in the morning”, Wendy says. “I’m just ready to start”!

Wendy’s natural optimism and knowing that WWBIC is a critical part of the economic solution during the pandemic motivates Wendy and her team to work especially hard these days. “We are driven by how can we can help our thousands of clients keep their businesses going and survive”. Wendy explains that in times like these, she and her team have to be ready to move with flexible, creative and relevant solutions. "My answer is, "yes", says Wendy. "We just need to figure out how".

To help WWBIC team members remain strong and not burn out when they are needed the most, Wendy sends them personal letters and notes of encouragement and gift packages. “Those little things can be everything”, Wendy explains.
