Special Edition: Staying Strong & Building Resiliency
No one predicted 2020. The worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been an unexpected source of stress and adversity for many of us. The challenges are real and on-going – and for many – the ability to cope has been tested. For Caterpillar Vice President Joe Creed, his challenge has been supporting his global team while at home with his family of four. For Corinna Holt Richter, President & Chief Administrative Officer Holt Cat, it has been finding time for personal health while managing a thriving business. And, for Dr. John Pompe, a licensed psychologist and the global manager of Caterpillar's Employee Mental Health programs, finding the balance of disrupting the routine of working at home.
Joe, Corinna and John have all found new ways of coping – and we wanted to hear from them about the lessons they’ve learned about staying strong in face of challenges. Their stories about navigating the pandemic are personal, their motivations are others-centered and their sense of humor? Intact.
On this special edition of our Beyond The Iron podcast, they talked with hosts Rusty Dunn and Lisa Miller to share their personal and professional thoughts about resilience – listen to their chat.

Great way to learn about the leaders within CAT!
As a Caterpillar employee, I really enjoy listening to this podcast! It’s a great way to be introduced to the different leaders throughout the organization. This is a great platform to learn about their background, and gain insight regarding their groups current initiatives. Each podcast has had great advice for employees as well. Keep up the good work!
Interesting but very hard to hear
Interesting but could hardly hear the conversation with volume all the way up using good headset.
Producer needs to check recording setting as other podcasts don't have same problem.
Poor production quality
This has the potential to be a solid podcast. Very intriguing to get an inside glimpse on the mental model of CAT leaders. But for a company founded on quality, the production value is junk. Hard to hear, even when cranking up the volume.
