Dr. Donald Lombardi has worked alongside hospitals in the wake of disasters like Hurricane Sandy, 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing. His talk looked at how he’s worked to help leaders on the ground manage through a crisis.
Social distancing has made it even harder to make individuals feel like part of a team. Dr. Wei Zheng surveyed Stevens alumni to learn how their managers were making them feel like accepted, valued contributors — even from six feet (or many miles) apart.
