Barry Broome joins Ron Kitchens for a dynamite interview. Barry talks bout letting multiple experiences in life create good leadership within one’s self and allowing that to bring a fresh approach to new challenges. He dives into the importance of connecting to your community’s culture and attaching people to the dream for the region. Sometimes you have to do a little agitating around the current model so that you can reframe the vision for the community and expand the dream. Barry also candidly shares the lessons he learned from his toughest season in his career when an entire industry collapsed. Tune in now to hear more from Barry, who shares openly his leadership journey and advice, and does not shy away from talking about the tough stuff.
