Tune in to this episode to meet Kyle Potts, the Unicorn of Superintendents! Kyle is a true “pracademic” as he is running a major project, earned two master’s degrees, and is currently working on obtaining a doctorate degree! Wow!! Not to mention, he predicted his future as a toddler when he told his pre-k class that he wanted to be a doctor and wear a yellow hat! He is well on his way as he purses his doctorate degree at Purdue University!
What is a Pracademic?
A Pracademic is an individual who is both an active practitioner as well as an academic in a particular subject area or field.
How are you spending your time? 1 hour of social media per day for each day of the year equivalates to 9 full working weeks! How much value could you add to this world with an extra 9 full working weeks? Kyle recommends putting down social media and picking up a book!
Have you ever built the second floor at the same time you’re installing foundations? That is how Kyle and the Walsh team put together the latest addition to the DFW airport. This is a must tune in and listen to as we learn about Kyle and how he learns every day! Congratulations on your national innovation award Walsh and trade partner team! The video can be witnessed further below in the show notes.
Having worked all around Dallas, Kyle highlights several folks and projects that impacted his career! Working with Deloitte University, Toyota, DFW, ad several other clients, Kyle has learned from each client’s perspective.
A great episode and tons of fun learning with Kyle. Whatever you do, don’t tell Kyle to think outside the box! What does that mean to you?
