S05E06 – Kyle Rhodes Explains How to Build a Successful Organization
The past year has been pretty stressful. We’re still dealing with a pandemic and related lockdowns. And right in the middle of all this, we had an incredibly divisive election and its related fallout.
Despite the stress, there were, and are, several stars shining through the darkness. One of those stars is Kyle Rhodes. As the president of PESCO, he fosters a culture of treating people well – very well. And when I say people – I mean his employees, his clients, and his community.
Kyle grew up in Farmington under the guidance of his parents who began building that culture – at home and at work. Kyle, and his brother Jim, have taken those reins and expanded on them by building a team of people who expand on their values of mutual respect, trust, integrity, and a commitment to excellence.
As the president of the Farmington School Board, Kyle extends that culture into our school system. He fosters a servant leadership environment of equipping, understanding, clear expectations, and accountability into our school system at every level, and those effects are making our corner of the world a better place.
Through all of the difficulties of dealing with a distance learning environment this past year, Farmington has led the state in the results of those efforts.
I want to dig around in the mind of Kyle Rhodes to see what led him to receive a Distinguished Public Service Award from the state last year.
