Raising our Capacity to Serve Our Community with Rick Webb Episode 008
This month’s podcast is going to be a little different than previous months. While we haven’t quite reached one year of podcast guests, we are approaching the one year mark of beginning the Jesup Group effort at Crowder College. It’s a perfect time to reflect and share our progress to this point. Over the past year the effort has evolved to focus on three key areas: Assisting with the development of a rural entrepreneurial culture in SW Missouri. Strategic regional and community development How to connect our rural students and residents to digital skills that will be essential to participate in an increasingly digital economy. As I reflected this past fall on how this effort began and has evolved and how it began, I ran across a video from a servant leadership conference we had The title of the video was “Crowder College Servant Leadership Conference – Rick Webb – Grit Studios.” In the fall of 2019 Crowder hosted our first ever servant leadership conference and Rick Webb was one of our keynote speakers. Rick is a retired Walmart executive, a self-described agitator, and founded a startup accelerator called Grit Studios in Bentonville, Ar. The title of his talk was “Raising our Capacity to Serve Our Community.” As I watched the video and listened to his talk again, I realized this talk, really the entire event led to Crowder’s efforts to begin the Jesup Group effort. A year and a half later I realized Rick was true to form and agitated us at Crowder. I hope you enjoy this podcast and become agitated to see how you can further develop your communities. Below are links to the resources Rick mentions in his talk.
