Ashley Philippsen, ImpactTulsa – January 8, 2021
Justin Harlan: We often have conversations about culture with the entire team to problem solve together and build the environment we want to work in in a collaborative fashion.
Shelley Cadamy: When I worked at the OK Department of Commerce we got a lot of input on where to put the water fountain, but very little input from communities as to what economic development they were interested in. For clarity, this is not a good example of how to collect input.
Shelley Cadamy: Asking the right questions is important.
Shelley Cadamy: I feel like you don’t have enough tabs open.
Omare Jimmerson: I remember that well
Adrian Blanco: Good Morning Ashley – Great to see you again! Thank you for all your help to the city. Keep up the great work! Proud of you.
ashley philippsen: It is critical to plan, clearly communicate, etc. Hello Adrian #LEADNorth
LaDonna Boyd: With Impact Tulsa- do you have data on Internet connection/ access for our TPS students for remote learning?
Adrian Blanco: #LeadNorth – This will help elevate our plan we put in motion. Great to see these plans come to fruition. Love the work here!
ashley philippsen: LaDonna, I don’t have that data but our Research and Data team does. When the City of Tulsa and others partnered with ImpactTulsa at the start of the pandemic, about 10% of households did not have internet connectivity
Justin Harlan: To me, leading teams is very similar whether non-profit or corporate. Good leadership practices like this would apply to both settings in most cases.
LaDonna Boyd: Ashley- the internet access for our students is withheld if the household owes Cox past due balance.
Janae Bradford: CAP Tulsa is very good at gathering input from staff and clients. When decisions are made, leadership shares the “why” behind it to help inform those constituents who may have asked for or suggested something different than the final decision.
Wendy Thomas: Ugency is the Enemy of Equity
Obum Ukabam: Great info! Thanks Ashley!
darren burns: Thank you Ashley and Wendy.
