Show Notes
Crisis times expose who we are and what we’re made of. For those who have committed to relationships and the process of improvement work, crisis times can be an opportunity for an organization’s strengths to shine through. Our partners in Waukesha County exemplify this—having a foundation that has helped them thrive despite disruptive circumstances. Our guests today are Waukesha County Executive, Paul Farrow, and Waukesha County Director of Parks and Land Use, Dale Shaver. Listen as they discuss how their county has collaborated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how their commitment to data-driven decisions has been essential to managing their team’s response.

This episode addresses questions, such as:

  • How can we find the right balance when it comes to communication— and not go overboard with it?
  • How can leaders work with their people to identify silos in the organization that should be eliminated?
  • How can partnerships with other organizations help leaders in their re-entry planning?
To hear Dale Shaver discuss how his team rapidly responded to closures in their county, remained engaged, and leaned on their culture while making the best decisions possible despite the uncertainty that remains, go back and listen to episode #68 Focus on the Positive.
