Today Ryan Pennington of Jump Seat Radio and I dive deep into how to develop a strong and lasting foundation. We end up in an unexpected conversation that was amazing!
Our discussion started out with a look at how we develop a solid foundation of what we know and what we can do then quickly turned to a deep look at how “foundation” is transitional and always expanding. The Foundation you have today will need to grow and expand across your career just as if you want to build a taller building, you’ll need to work on the Foundation first. Ryan shares his own struggles, fears, frustrations and aspirations as he makes the leap into a key leadership role.
