Still can't hear Elaine Ng very well. Is it possible to turn up the volume?
ALFREDO ANTHONY
45:22
try plugging in a headphone, it'll help. All good on my end. Just not as clear as the presenter's vocal.
Meera, The Bridgespan Group
45:25
Hi folks - please try your volume if you're having a hard time hearing!
ALFREDO ANTHONY

Just not as clear as the Meera's vocal.

Both of my volume levels are "up to max." In fact, I'm having to turn the volume WAY DOWN so Andrew's voice doesn't hurt my ears.
Holly Delany Cole
46:49
I had to exit the full screen and increase my own volume and it was fine. Now I have to lower it because Andrew's volume is loud.

50:59
the quote is on the slide
Kathy Toner
51:00
quote is at the bottom of the slide I think. signal is now better.
Regina Neu
51:19
Having same issue... the "joys" of online/zoom sessions now :(
Jennifer Sallman

"You may be used to running ahead to see what's next. What people need now is to walk together through this."
naina khanna
51:37
:) oh thanks! thought they said something a bit diff.
Meera, The Bridgespan Group
53:32
Thank you for your patience with audio issues, everyone - our panelists are also working from home and dealing with less-than-ideal technology situations!
Mollie McKiernan
54:24
safety and health of employees is the highest priority we say that at every town hall and in every email as we communicate to help our employees understand the necessary precautions to take as our mayor and governer have mandated
Catherine Deutsch
57:53
Question around scenario planning - should main driver be the revenue assumptions or should it be the other factors that impact programming. To be concrete, we partner with higher ed - I can imagine 4 scenarios around Higher Ed coming back online next fall and I can come up with 3 revenue pipelines. That’s 12 scenarios :/ How to boil it down? What should drive what?
Meera, The Bridgespan Group
59:23
Lots of great questions coming in, thank you - we're going to get to as many as we can, thanks for your patience!
Catherine Deutsch
01:03:35
Patrick Lencioni’s stuff is really helpful on all of this.
Catherine Deutsch
01:04:06
Helps define different use of 1) Daily stand up 2) weekly tactical 3) Strategy meetings 4) quarterly planning meetings - i am leaning on his stuff very hard right now - speaks to what Andrew is saying right now.
Catherine Deutsch
01:04:19
Death by Meeting is a great book on this. Very quick practical read.
naina khanna
01:05:46
we are an org led by our constituents who are from directly impacted constituencies. curious to hear how are folks managing the burden of needing to plan/adjust/forecast when org leadership is also coping with reduced capacity including the logistical and emotional toll/trauma of this moment?
Robin Yates
01:07:17
Some say that you shouldn’t try to do a strategic plan during a crisis. Do you agree or disagree?
Kellie O'Connell
01:10:13
I’m curious if you can share anything you’ve seen for organizations actively responding on the front lines of the crisis (or some prior crisis) and have suddenly had to double or triple their typical operations. I’m thinking about how long we we maintain increased response, how do we retract (if we do), and what does the future look like on the other side of this.
Robin Yates
01:13:16
are you talking about 6-12 months being the only horizon on all planning or just scenario planning. harkens back to my other question.
Catherine Deutsch
01:14:56
This is so helpful - so non-revenue factors are the starting point and then you think about impact on revenue. That resonates
Catherine Deutsch
01:15:39
Planning to plan - so helpful as a framework.
Catherine DeLoughry
01:18:31
A worst case scenario may include shutdowns of substantial parts of operations or of the organization entirely (with a wind-down). It is very helpful to have a range of staff engage in the planning --- but how do you manage the impact on staff who might be helping to plan a scenario where they no longer have a job?
Bridgette Hudson
01:18:42
would be curious to know if there are any new CEOs/ Exec Directors in the group (0-1 yr) on the job
Kirsten Olson
01:19:19
I started as CEO 1/1/2020, Bridgette!
Tricia Russell
01:19:20
I am a new ED (2yrs)
Christine Alves
01:19:42
I'm new too, since July 2019
Catherine Deutsch
01:19:53
+1 this question: A worst case scenario may include shutdowns of substantial parts of operations or of the organization entirely (with a wind-down). It is very helpful to have a range of staff engage in the planning --- but how do you manage the impact on staff who might be helping to plan a scenario where they no longer have a job?
Kathy Toner
01:20:54
I'm curious to know what has been most helpful to these folks in their roles as leaders as they have led these processes? what helped them to use this thinking/approach? Did they find consultations w/ other EDs helpful if that happened? What types of technical support, tools, etc. are most value add now and in the near term?
Kathy Toner
01:22:11
sorry when is the next session?
Josefina Rodríguez
01:22:20
May 7th
Catherine Deutsch
01:22:51
I’d also like to understand the role of City Year National vs. City Year Detroit. If there’s time.
Mollie McKiernan
01:24:25
Encourage connectivity, and train managers to connect to staff on well being calls to make sure we all really know what is happening with all of our employees. We know who has first responders in their homes and we know who have children so we are building affinity groups that can help zoom meetings for those that are parenting, teaching and working.
Alison Baum
01:25:36
This webinar is incredibly helpful. Might it be possible for the panellists and Meera and Colleen to address the pertinent questions by video in the next week or so, as part of the wrap-up of THIS webinar? With their reflections being shared with participants in the next week or two. I'm suggesting this, as I'm sure there will be many more questions on 7th May and the landscape is shifting so rapidly that their insights sooner would be very helpful.
naina khanna
01:25:45
thank you for this useful webinar. what is the time for the May 7th session?

Brian Kilkelly
01:28:44
thank you all!
Mardie Oakes
01:28:55
I used scheduling tool Calendly to make it easy for people to sign up for 30 minute one-on-ones with me (I’m the president - we are 15 people) so I could get a better handle on where people are at, after realizing how big a blind spot it is to not be able to read social cues (in keeping with what Andrew was just sharing). For some, it was a light chat, for others, a heavy share. Very helpful for all.
Pamela Estes
01:28:55
Much Gratitude!
Catherine Deutsch
01:28:58
Thank you! Lots of gratitude and solidarity across the divide.
Brian Kilkelly
