Let go of perfect.

What happens when an organization committed to improvement has to transform everything they do in 5 days? People let go of being perfect and rely on their relationships, values, and communication to achieve results. Joining Janet today are three leaders from the School District of Menomonee Falls; Casey Blochowiak, Tina Posnanski, and Sue Lee.

This episode addresses questions, such as:

  • Why is it important to create a culture of problem-solvers?
  • What can leaders do to empower people to overcome barriers?
  • How can teams stay committed to accountability during disruption?
  • What is the first step towards improvement?
