To kick off Season 2, Eric speaks with Chuck Winn, Assistant City Manager in Bozeman, Montana. Chuck tells us about his 37-year career with the city of Bozeman, which included starting as a 20 year-old with the fire department and later becoming fire chief. In his own unique and fun way, Chuck also recites poems and children’s books like Winnie the Pooh and the Velveteen Rabbit to give listeners a look into how he makes sense of his past experiences and how he understands what is worthwhile to spend time and energy on.
Eric, a graduate of Leadership Montana Class of 2016 and Masters Class 2019, leads this project with an unmatched curiosity and thirst for learning how each interviewee leans into leading. Eric magically brings to life the story underneath the words and weaves together a series that perfectly illustrates the meaning and value of listening deeply. Originally from Billings, Eric currently resides in Missoula where he serves as the Communications and Development Administrator for Partnership Health Center.
Chuck is a graduate of the 2015 Leadership Montana Flagship Program, a graduate of the 2019 Leadership Montana Masters Class, and a Gracious Space Certified Trainer.
