003: Catalyst Mastermind Speaker Series Greg Wukasch

Since 1998, Greg Wukasch has worked in the External Affairs Department with the San Antonio Water System, beginning as an Education Coordinator and now as the External Affairs Manager. Greg really considers himself more of a “story teller” putting together water stories for citizens across the city he loves. When not talking H2O, this self-professed water nerd also enjoys talking strategic planning and corporate culture.  

Greg and his team have developed impactful programs that have continued to create community between SAWS and the community it serves. These programs include the high school education program Impact.  

Three Key Points:

  1. The whirlwind is never going to go away. The key is to find the tools to manage it to stay laser focused and on mission.
  2. We accomplish more when we break down the silo mindset of departments i.e. engineering, education, customer service, etc.
  3. Mentorship is not about just smiling and nodding. Real mentors aren’t afraid to have the tough conversations and will challenge you to be the better you every day.
