Zoom is by no means the only way for a video meeting but the company has come out ahead during the pandemic zoom is among npr's financial supporters. And we cover it like any other company. Npr's shannon bond has the company's pandemic story chief financial officer kelly steckel berg vividly remembers one specific date. Last spring march fifteenth. Last year was the day when everything changed. Its like we woke up and almost overnight that demand grew exponential demand from companies. Trying to keep running after sending everybody home.

Happy hours complete with drinking games. We figured out rules for virtual beer. Pong one of our producers watched her sister get married over zoom. You may now feel your ballot. Chests by april zoom meetings were attracting three hundred million participants a day thirty times the amount just a few months before zoom was an upstart and it was going up against products from giants like google and microsoft which are both npr supporters.

"chief financial officer" Discussed on Behind The Numbers
"Everyone welcome back to behind the numbers Dave bookbinder and today we're talking about the evolving role. The CFO with Jim Caruso who's the chief financial officer at some Flora Health, group. Want to start the second segment by giving you an opportunity to brag just a little bit. I reached out to Jim after seeing that he had been recognized with the CFO of the year award and anytime CFO gets recognized with an award like that resonates with me because they're usually doing some prequel things besides just as I mentioned in the first segment financial stewardship so. When you give you a moment here. I know that you're humble, and you don't WanNa. Talk about it much, but tell the audience just a little bit about that experience in your word. Well, it was definitely an honor and a great experience and. One of the best things that came out of it. Was You and I getting connected in being able to do this? So the recognition is definitely a good thing and it was appreciated. You know it's. You wouldn't be human. If didn't enjoy seeing yourself in the Philadelphia. Business Journal write with your picture there and even a giant cardboard cutout at the event. Interesting, but. I mean the recognition was appreciated. It's nice to be recognized by peers. Mean I had? You know having been in professional services prior to the CFO role I had gone to that event in the past. And and you know always thought it was pretty cool that CFO's were being recognized as a key sea level, executive position, and that these individuals have been recognized. I always wondered how one one about getting that recognition, so it was nice to receive and. To be honored by peers, but you know. I couldn't have done it without a great CEO that worked for a great team that I work with and not just on my finance team, but it and HR in other areas of the company and you know for every one of us that one there's. You know how many hundreds of CFO's toiling in obscurity so I think they deserve just as much credit as well. Congratulations to you on that quick. So you mentioned you in professional services, and you've kind of bobbed and weaved if you will near career in professional services in CFO back and forth a couple of times, how's that benefited you and give me the or give the audience overview of kind of the strategic imperatives around that and what you've taken away? Sure well. Know I think that my time in professional services was phenomenal in and enjoyable and I. It really broadened me as a CFO I. I used to run a at least in my most recent professional services stint, Iran and transaction advisory practice, and also a financial outsourcing practice, so a lot of the experience that I brought into this role came from that previous role having seen. Probably fifty acquisitions and many of them that were very. Dirty, if you will in terms, you know small cash basis businesses without good books and records, so you know that was a great experience and in running financial outsourcing practice I saw many different companies in many different industries, so it broadened me. From a technical standpoint, but more importantly it may be entrepreneurial building these practices being involved in business development, getting more of a marketing and sales and marketing mindset. Building Network Those were all things that I brought into this. Current role, I had been a CFO before that as well at another company before going into professional services, so that CFO experience gave me the technical skills to effectively act as a part time CFO to my clients while I was in professional services. So you know every everything I? Did set me up for the next thing, so that was the strategy behind it and you know I think that everything. Everything you do, gets you to where you are. So you know I could look back and say Oh, if fight state and professional services I might have been a partner earlier in my career, if I had stayed in industry I might have been a CFO earlier in my career but it doesn't ever paid a second guess things because everything you do. builds on itself and ultimately I'm. Proud to say. I was both a partner in public accounting as well as a CFO in industry, so having reached the the top in in finance in both the public role and an industry role so. I'm happy with the way everything worked out, and and you know every. Spring something to the table and the idea is to bring you know shape your own role and bring what you most enjoyed from your prior experiences in and use those to shape your role and bringing those perspectives into each of the other roles, certainly helps as you said, read something recently about who is likely to be the air parent to. A CEO and the CFO is the number one name for taking that role ultimately. What's your thought on that? Well I hope it's true. It's something that most people aspire to I. Think being a CEO is is the pinnacle of career you know in industry whether you become one by being an entrepreneur or by Being a CEO of a company I think it's the pinnacle of of a career. As far as goals for a lot of people you know I think the article you site is great news for CFO's that do aspire to that role You know there. There are other schools of thought that say you really need to have a penal responsibility before becoming a CEO and that you know. CFO's May come up short in that regard so you know there's a couple of different schools of thought out there, but I think as we talked about the role of the CFO and just how multidimensional it is, and how close of a relationship there is to the CEO, you have a bird's eye seat to learn about leadership and to see the entire company so personally. I think it is the ideal Move to I. Think CFO's are in general very well positioned for that role. I happen to agree with you on that front. How can the audience reach out to you if they WANNA, learn more if they want to have a conversation with you. They can email me directly at the company J.

"chief financial officer" Discussed on Behind The Numbers
"Getting to and from the doctor meal preparation, things of that nature largely Medicaid population, we operate in seven states where private equity backed. We have about fourteen thousand employees, and a number of the from brains that we operate under in different reaches. Thank you for that. We're going to be talking about as I mentioned in the opening devolving role the CFO, so you've been a cfo for a while, and I wanted to start with asking you. You about what you've seen in terms of the evolution when I'm working with CFO's on a day to day basis, it seems like they're taking on more than just. We'll call it. The Financial Stewardship of an organization there are involved with Infotech. They're involved with HR and other things. What are you seeing? What's been your experience on? My experience is the role has definitely gotten much broader. I like to describe it as almost like conciliatory type role. To be an advisor to the CEO in multiple areas, and it's different of course from company to company. It depends you know. Is there a chief operating officer and president below the CEO If not, that really opens up the opportunity for the CFO. To really step more into operations to be more strategic You know to handle HR and it as you mentioned sometimes, the CFO will have direct tangible responsibility for those functions on an org chart. Even if not, they're always involved in them, because finance is the hub for us so many different things in an organization that he or she can help involved in those areas. Yeah, and you're involved in both right both it char. CORRECTS. What's that been like for you? As you started to dip your toes into, those will call maybe unfamiliar waters. Well a HR is very challenging. Because of all of the regulations and compliance aspects particularly around ACA so it's been helpful to have a team internally that that really knows the INS and outs and you know some good outside advisors as well on the benefits front for example on the IT, side similarly a CFO is not a technologist, so I rely on the IT team to really understand the applications that data the infrastructure and and really to just be a strategic partner to them to help them to understand what we need to run the business to report the numbers you know everything is becoming more data focused with big data. How do we mind that? How do we get to what we need? How do we cut through the complexity so You know there's definitely has to be a partnership there between finance and it. They're absolutely inseparable. Do you have other functions reporting to you as decides it are? No that that that's about it. On from a technical standpoint, but again as a CFO at the opportunity to get into. Anything and everything. In fact, it was a lot of fun to be part of the group that rebranded the company a couple of years ago, employer was a new rebrand for us that that was fun to be a part of as well one of the few CFO's that likes marketing, and we ought to be spending more money on it so. That is interesting speaking of liking to spend money. normally it. The finance function is kind of the enemy of HR. From that perspective of spend. What's been your experience so far in working with your HR team? I. Think we work well together? I think at least for me. Personally I have I think the employee experience is very important. So you know you can't do that without being cost conscious. Right I mean there's always more money that that you could spend, but there are so many things you can do for employees don't even necessarily cost the company a lot of money like making sure they have a 401k benefits, other insular voluntary benefit programs they participate in. It Dr- helping drive engagement among employees, and and making sure they have a good experience opportunities to learn. There are so many things you can do that. Don't even have to cost a lot of money. Yeah, very very true when you talk about getting the right people on your team. Obviously, that's critical as a CFO. You're not expected day to day to know all the INS and outs of we'll call HR function per. Se, it's. It's important to have the right person in. In that seat. How do you go about thinking about constructing a good team? And what he looked for in the individuals that you're talking to well, the right team is critical You know as Jim. Collins famously talked about getting the right people in in the right seats, and I'm blessed to have a great team, but what I look for when I'm hiring or promoting. My number one attribute is intellectual curiosity. I think that somebody has to WANNA learn be devoted to lifetime, learning and you know reads a lot, and it's really open to new experiences. Somebody that really wants to understand why they need to do things, and and is not mechanical and somebody that can really think outside the box, and and come up with creative solutions, no matter what level they're at. I think intellectual curiosity is critical for driving engagement because I think engagement is about wanting to spend some of your discretionary time on your job, and wanting to be better and I think the intellectual curiosity is a key driver of that now. Not everybody that has intellectual curiosity is necessarily engage. They may have curiosity about everything other than work, so it's still up to the leaders of the business to drive that engagement, and to really leverage that engagement on the job, but I think intellectual curiosity is critical I also think work ethic is critical, having a positive attitude, a good sense of humor, communication ability, as you can see them going more for the intangibles. Totally. I think the technical skills can always be taught now of course at higher levels right, you expect them to have certain knowledge and experience but. I think at least for entry level hires The intangibles are critical. It's a I believe they're a neat. You know you have the more you don't, but the technical can always be taught, and if somebody has the right attitude, they can learn anything. Yeah, I completely agree with you. You're preaching to the choir and that when they say when I talked to candidates. Exactly what I'm looking for the technical piece that can be taught it. It's all those intangible folks and evaluation guy who spends a lot of time intangible asset. Believe me that resonates. You talk about engagement and. Wanted to go there just for a little bit if you don't mind because. In my book, We talk a lot about engagement in social media. There's a lot of discussion about engagement Gallup has said basically that roughly we one out of every three employees is engaged..

"I think that motivates people in so sort of tried to tile that together in this eighteen minutes had talked hocus pretty fun so people is really good and you know one of the things I think is really important. I actually love what millennials are doing to our corporate world because it is. It's making him shift that they have to shift to to be able to attract people into their businesses. And I think it's for the better. You know I do too because I think pink. We're also the most diverse generation in history and we're large and Socially aware generation thus far. So we're active socially actually in our communities and politically in our you know. We sorta don't tolerate certain behaviors in corporate America. That I think we're a part of the fiber of so many industries for so long and so to watch you mean and I'm even more hopeful. You know my son's seventeen the way he talks like that we're going to be all right. Exactly love that requiring corporations look in the mirror and and shifts in a way that I think's really positive I heard a statistic cystic just the other day and I want to say that millennials are going to be fifty percent or more of the workplace within just the next couple of years next year next year. Okay Yep Yep. We'll pass fifty percent mark in the year twenty twenty. Yeah so that's you know. That's the reason corporations have to change because it's rights. Hello uh-huh who's going to be working for you so I think it's awesome. It's awesome on the outside Danielle. You appear so bold and courageous. Is there anything you're afraid data. Oh Man I'm I'm afraid of so many things I'm scared all the time I think I just a handover. NOPE speier differently than others. Or you know I just don't let your stop me but I'm afraid I want people to know that because I do think my outward yeah I do come up pretty bold incompetent. I guess fearless. But that's that's not the reality. I don't claim to be fearless. I wouldn't want anyone to think that because I wouldn't want them to pink their their fear in means they're not ready or a sign of them not being successful so I got scared all the time. I'm scared before you get on the podcast August interview. I scared scared before I get on any stage whether it's five thousand people. I'm speaking to her twenty but then I just sort of talk myself into you and I do that by saying you know what's the worst that can happen and I think the other thing that I have really maintained perspective on my life where again I won't be sixteen certain John or you know what. Were your goals for yourself. Danielle when you're seventeen eighteen nineteen and all. You aren't Jewish Graduate College not be on public assistance. That's I was John Public Assistance and there's nothing wrong with public but that was my goal right. That's what I wanted to go to college and so for me to forget that that was the goal let myself be terrified by all the other things that I faced. Just doesn't seem realistic to me right. Like I always sort of say you know. How long would it take me to get all the way back to that? That place where the only thing I wanted was to not be public assistance right. Like how many failures would I have to ask for this subject to change so significantly he that I'd be back in the face where my I wasn't achievable moron. Kind of helps level set me around my fear and then I kinda use that fear to propel myself in oftentimes sometimes the thing. I'm afraid of the thing that you know is really the fuel for what's next for me And so having a couple successes with moments where I was really WTMA afraid and it turned out really well for me has also given media in the ability of you. Did face the next fear with a little more competence and I think that's the if there's one thing that I've learned from being an entrepreneur from doing this podcast and getting to speak to so many amazing women who have done just extraordinary things. All around the world all is that that fear thing is a real thing for all of us and it shows up for us and we just get good at stepping into it and and despite the fear and every time we stretch a little bit more. There's some warfare that's associated there and we step into it and then it's easier the next time and it just keeps that that. That bar keeps moving ray. I love that I love. I love the step into it like I haven't been that later. That's exactly right and we're never talk whenever becoming people who don't get afraid we just have developed tools for That's right so what are some of the biggest biggest lessons you've learned in your journey to so many I've learned that Wherever we go we take us with US right And so learning to not try to be somebody different In a work place than I do when I show up for my kids or when I show about you know meeting the moms or show with my friends and that's going to be my life long journey. It's my lifelong goal is is to show up as myself and knees in every space. I'm in and I would be lying if I said master that or that I feel the same level of comfort to Bya WII opposites different spaces but more and more as I've built my career as learned to be a little more myself in every space. I am so that's that's a huge lesson. If you can start at work now that's a good thing for you and your life will be a little easier and I got fine happiness more and then You know I think that I've learned that there's a really big difference between goals and plans and I think when you achieve some of the successes. Excessive have people like man. You must be so you know deadly focused on how to get somewhere and so driven and have this map you know how. Wow you climb the corporate ladder man that so so far from the truth the one thing that is true that I'm goal oriented so I set goals for myself every year. Every you know when you're going through your goals but then I don't get myself attached to how to get there right because it's a change it's GonNa Change a thousand times people. They had one or go to Miami tomorrow and I WANNA get there by airplane and I wanNA take united and I wanNA leave at eleven and I wanna get there by one and then what happens is you're like it's canceled. You have to get on a bus. You get stuck in for a week. Most people stop in theory. You know most people are like well. I'm in Missouri. Not Miami so therefore. That wasn't the goal that was meant for me Anna. You know. I've learned the difference between that. There is no goal that is not how you get there is going to change. It's GonNa look different from what you set out for it to be. I think the only difference between me and someone who maybe isn't where I am but wants to be is that you know they may have quit witness's Uri and they need to just get right back on that bus and keep going and then learn as much as you can when stuff goes in a different way than you wanted it to go right while I'm here for a reason. So what can I pick up and from WHO prey huge lesson and it's made it easier for me to make decisions along the way in. Tonight's a headache all set for the year. I mean what's what's your your approach to that because I'm so busy because I'm so self analytical I usually Liam really aware of the things in the year that didn't go the way that I needed them to For me if there is something that I wanted to do that I didn't do go set around. Oh just push the goal into the next year but I try to understand why what was going on in my schedule or going on within me personally Personally that didn't help didn't get exactly where I wanted to shift basis. That's right because otherwise you're just reset the goal with the same bad habits So most most of my golder around my own my own works are like my own internal work and I WANNA be more this or You know I wanNA be less missed. I WANNA spend my time in this way and more of my time. In that way I do set set goals that way right to one of your goals in for me to buy some investment properties without understanding yourself and what might prevent you from getting their spending habits or you know hating to do personal finances because I do them all day I it makes it hard to like actually set goals. That are achievable towards the bigger goal. So you know all cycles like hiring personal cowan that really sort of takes. My money does not want me or you know just things that are you know really helped me get there. But it's all about understanding myself. I in what I need to do. Better better or get help doing arm to achieve goals so my my yearly goals look pretty funny and are pretty tactical and they're also like it's just a lot of self work I WanNa be in twenty twenty. I've already started thinking about this. I WANNA I WANNA care less. What the outside world thinks of me you know? I can only do that by setting small little goals. You know. We're in a moment where you know. I changed my outfit because I'm worried what people are GonNa think when I'm on that stage don't change my outfit and really that that simple little To progress towards a better version of myself not such people either so that you know that's a long term goals they need but each year. I set smaller goals to try to achieve that. So what tell rooks. That's good. That's really good. What's the legacy you hope to lead? Oh my Gosh I hope you know I never think about what I WANNA do for a living only who I wanna be for a living. That is really rich. I love that Eh. Ah Titled All that come in Nick chains ner temporary but I guess I guess what I hope people say the chill. She left me better than she found me because She shared something that I related to. And you know I hope that legacy you bet I left my communities and the people in my communities better than I found them. I don't want people to walk away from interactions with me Worse than they were or even you know the same as they were so hopefully I can use everything hard that I've been through in a way that makes something easier for or somebody else. It's kind of I think that's why I'm here. I think that's what I go through what I go through. And even if it's not it sure helps me get through the day to think that way. Yes look to leave it a little better than founded and I love it. Yeah Yeah what. What's next for you? And where can people learn more about you and your work. Gosh you know again hard to answer that question. What's next for me to walk through? Open doors there you go with Komo Going to be traveling a lot less of getting more involved in Colorado community again. I'm using my role here at the trust to do that. So that's already happening in just feeling joy every day getting to do that and then you know we're really doing some expansions..

It was the the women that are being recognized in that. It's it's just so amazing. Congratulations Oh thank you so much. The Yeah Yeah Yeah So. Let's start with your personal story of being a mom at a very early age because I think that shapes us when we're young moms and we were talking about this earlier earlier this year shapes us when we're young moms and how we show up in lights so why don't you tell us that story. Yeah you know I I had my son MCI when I was sixteen eighteen years old so Catering seventeen this year which is just an insane amount. They yes yeah. Even close to the age I had they give me a whole new perspective of this journey but So you know as a teen mom and I think that as I think about that and the impact on me as a person Curson But really on my career be has been sort of the foundation of it and I never would have admitted that in the beginning of bacteria when I first became SAM RS. Twenty Twenty six hundred ten year old at home and the reality of not. A lot of people knew that because the secret I did I did being a team or not ought not a story I shared. It was a shame I carry and so when I first got a big team of people that was responsible responsible for as their leader. I really didn't want them to in addition to me being the youngest. CFO In the history of that department. Want them to think about me being a teen mom and just use it against meow here. You know you're inexperienced. You can't do this. You can't do that. I was just so ashamed of my age and you can imagine trying to be an effective leader carrying what kind of shame in those types of secrets. Not going well for me. So when I became a sleepover Messing it up pretty bad for you know four to six months depending on who you ask and it wasn't until I realized you know. Hey if I'm going to go down I'M GONNA go down being myself and I went into work and ask my team for help kind of admitted. Hey I'm really insecure about my age. I'm insecure about being the youngest person in every room. I'm in and the reason is because I had I had a baby at sixteen so I've been been the youngest in every part of my life in every aspect of my life than the judgments I received for being too young to be a parent or become apparent It really created a real walser me that I have now carried into my career and I. I just need your help in most of the people that worked for me at the state had been there longer than eh been alive and so you know to try to pretend that I was gonna be able to leave them without their help. Knowledge expertise was just silly announced the day I kind of learned how poor it my story was how important being a mom leads that it actually was making me a better leader and gave me some really interesting perspective did on my career and then also leadership was something nothing to do with how good I was at being financial technician and that really really for me. Leadership was about being a member of a team and being a visionary on a team but then also that I'd have to ask for help as leader for the rest of my life. The experience made me fall in leadership. So this powerful and when you when you just came clean with your team what was the response. Well I'm so grateful for that moment because it taught me the power of Boehner ability as a leader because they rallied around me from that. Hi Dave forward where they understood you know my weaknesses in the areas where I was feeling very exposed really did their best film those gaps. There I call all that those people that were from back at the state to this day when I'm feeling Like I'm having a hard time or feeling shame or I'm a nervous to be vulnerable in situation or I'm going to take a new job. I get their advice to day. Become some of my greatest mentors in the world and they worked for me in and they taught me so much about myself and so much about. How much people want to be there for you when you could be authentic invulnerable? There's so many things about that story. And it's one of the things that in the vulnerability absolutely and then the other part about. It is the fact that we lead from all sides right. We can be a follower. We can be a leader and we show up at all of those different ways when we are showing up As love that in. That's really what what happened. Open there. I do nothing this. I do. Leadership workshops with my horses. I didn't know that yeah and that is one of the most fascinating Canadian Things that that comes out of that when we do work with the horses and like last year for example we did with Lockheed Martin's leadership team and it was so powerful. What you see is is how when you start doing the work with the horses? And they start responding and reacting with with the team you start to see where leader where leadership can show up in different formats whether leadership followership and then the other part of that is vulnerability really comes or through some all of that. So it's it's pretty cool to be able to bring the horses in. Let Them Mirror. What's happening on team? Oh I love that I love that you think about the vulnerability that you shared back at the time and if you would have been able to take that whole team together together and be with the horses there would have been some really magical things that would have happened to unfold with. thatt's so that's that's what popping up for me on that. Yeah I love that that. Just stand in the face of this creature that show strong an inner. That really is what you're looking at when you're thinking about leadership you know window. I have to be the strongest in the room. When do I have to let someone else? Strengths come out. Where do I have to let people know? I'm scared or I'm struggling so that they can step in to help me the and that's that's leadership that's what it is that's cool. That's really cool. So tell us more about the ARC wave your your career from that point from from the Colorado Department of Public Health. After I left this state I decided to go into corporate America which was a really interesting transition. People met I was crazy and I went over to the West Division of comcast as the manager of financial planning and analysis. I got a lot of feedback.

I was just thinking you said we've invited Paul crews on the show many times, I'm thinking how many times do you see him interviewed period by anybody? I think it's very very rare seem on the TV's every now and then every now, and then I in that position. But you're right. I mean, a ISD is at the top of the chain when it comes to giving money back to the state. The USDA is the prime example of what is wrong with recapture. And robinhood, you're right. He should be on the leading edge across the state are our last two police. Chiefs have been completely one hundred percent excessive oil to us anytime. We had a question anytime. AST for God's sakes involves so many people in this in this town, you should be there when we need you. You did you through our questions here about this McCallum high school student? He's been charged with making terroristic threat towards the campus. Police say Tonio wicks he's eighteen years old at the school had written and had made several verbal threats. They were considered very serious wakes ran from the school now actually before police arrived. They had to chase him. They found him later at his house. He is in some trouble. But I got word this morning that one of his friends may be making very similar threats in social media this morning on Snapchat. We had a listener call us and say, hey, that dude's friend is making more comments more threats in the Snapchat world Tamang guys. I mean, you're doing this. I know your kids. I know you're dumb your. We're all dumb at that age. But yeah, you're welcome. But how do you how how did you think that was going to end for you? How did you make that threat that empty? Threat. What did you think was going to happen next? What was the end result? You were looking for. Maybe you got the wasn't an empty threat. Maybe it was. No, no. You're in trouble. You you. You always have to look at those threats serious to be serious understand. But you yourself apparently knew that that was a an empty threat. So what did you think was going to happen next Emily in south Austin, good morning? Morning. Hey, I just wanted to talk about the all day. Daycare really quick. Yeah. And I wanted to qualify. I'm at forty three. I'm single no children, and I was raised by a single better. So I'm not making value judgement on anybody. But my mother's mother told her don't have kids you can't afford, it you and your husband aren't getting along super wealth decision. They did it anyway. And my brother, and I ended up in daycare, and some my worst memory Harvey and taking care of other people who either and I don't wanna make it sound like I was horrifically abused. But you know, they they treated me like I was their job. It's miserable. I I don't I didn't like being away from my mom every day. I think a lot of kids the same. I can't imagine being born into this world. And the first thing happens to you is you get shipped off listen in some neighborhoods. This is a very good idea. And let me explain there are some neighborhoods were the. Entire elementary school is Spanish speaking only. Yes, they have trouble passing the state test. They have trouble. They get a little bit behind in their education. And they in a in a high rate of dropouts once they get to middle school and onto the high school. This gives them a chance to learn English. They can learn our education in public schools. And it may it may prevent the future schools that need to be closed because they're underfoot underperforming. I gotcha. I just my my wish would be in. My hope is that it's always used just for that purpose versus get my kid never worried about it. I wish we didn't have to use it for that purpose at all.

"I encourage them to I encourage them to go through the district office in me in particular. So. That I can vet the software. Make sure it meets we have to state laws house Bill five in house. Bill two thirty two that are specific to student data privacy. And so I encourage them to go through me. So I can vet the software or at can help. Our have our digital earning coaches help vet the software, but when we don't know about those products that are being purchased. It is hard for the technology department to provide adequate support. And so when teachers don't get adequate support either, you know learning how to use the software itself or how to troubleshoot the software when things don't work if they don't get lack of support they do give up. I mean, I was a classroom teacher myself. And I know that most eaters will try something once they'll even try it twice. But the third time that they try something, and it doesn't work. They they will not try again. Sure. So so lack of support is is crucial. But that that. That's an that's a give and take because we have to know what we are supposed to be supporting so the so in in our district. We do have a process I worked with our chief financial officer to develop a procedure where if he gets a purchase order requests for software or an item of technology hardware that he is supposed to show those to me if it doesn't have my stamp already on it. And so that's a good procedure to to to have in place. But it doesn't always work. And then the lack of training is just it goes along with lack of time, you know, most school district have prescribed professional development program or number of hours that they have to cover and in many times teachers put in that extra time to learn whatever they have to learn for whatever the district has decided is the targeted goal for this year. And oftentimes they won't on their own. Go out and seek training to learn how to use a product or a software not I'm not faulting them for that. They don't have time. So that comes back to that other issue if they don't have time. And so if if we could somehow structure, either, our professional development or our school calendar in such a way that teachers have time to work with each other and to work specifically with products. I think you'll see a lot less of that wastefulness on the idea of software is not being used software products not being used. Sure, Diana was I was thinking about this. Do you have a process for making resource decisions? And is there anything you think you're doing that's unique to make these kind of decisions. So we can share with others. Well, the the learn platform that I spoke earlier, it does have a process in place where all purchases are requests for purchases would go through that platform. We have not kicked that off in our district yet, excuse me. But one of the things that we do have is we have a rubric that especially in elementary k five where we have the ipads is when teachers want us to buy apps on to be used for the ipads is as they we have a work order process. They put a work order in. And then that work order goes to the digital learning coach who then helps the teacher complete a rubric to decide if the app is.
