Lesa is an EOS Implementer who started her career with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, where she created her own curriculum to help staff members transition from terminals to personal computers. She went on to work for Stewart Enterprises in the Death Care Industry, first as an office manager for a Fort Worth funeral home, and then as a cemetery manager for a Pearland funeral home.
Today, I sit down with Lesa, a fellow EOS Implementer, as we go over what it feels like being on the frontlines during the ongoing COVID pandemic and trying to help businesses survive and stay in control. We ponder over the surprisingly good things that have come out of this crisis and how it has pushed companies to be better versions of their current selves and things we wish companies would keep doing when we slowly go back to normalcy.
