How Trauma and Our History Shape Us As Leaders with Kyle Meadows

Our effectiveness as leaders, employees, or any other role in our lives is often profoundly shaped by our past experiences- good and bad. Some experiences like trauma and other huge losses can leave us with deep wounds that, if left untreated, profoundly hinder our abilities in many areas of business and personal life. Moving forward is one of the most challenging yet rewarding journeys we can take. This episode's guest is an incredible shop owner named Kyle Meadows. He took on that quest and overcame some huge blows he took from his past, allowing him to build an incredible repair shop, thrive in his personal life, and now be able to support others through their struggles. This is a powerful episode. Stay tuned.
