Cultivate a Can-Do Culture
As parents, students, and employees in the School District of Menomonee Falls began preparing for the effects of COVID19, Superintendent, Corey Golla, reflects on the remarkable way his entire staff came together and accepted the challenges they were facing. Rather than focusing on their anxieties, teams across the entire school system got together to identify problems, solutions, and use their guiding principles to make decisions with student safety as their number one priority. Under Corey’s leadership, SDMF saw a culture of people that stepped up to write a beautiful story in a difficult time. But even Corey will tell you, there is no way they could have accomplished what they have if they were only reliant on their leadership team. The culture of their organization has been foundational for serving in times of rapid change and uncertainty.
This podcast episode addresses questions, such as:
- How does establishing a mission and a vision for the moment provide clarity and direction for your teams?
- What are the effects of establishing a can-do culture?
- Why is leadership more than a title?
