LISTEN FIRST MONTANA

Listen first. It is what all great leaders do.

Episode 9: The 2021 Montana Legislature

In this special episode of Listen First Montana, Chantel and Eric visit the State Capitol in Helena and visit with several Leadership Montana alumni who work in the Legislature as elected members or government relations executives. We will hear from Democrats and Republicans about the ways that they listen to understand and to seek common ground. This is a timely view inside the marble halls of our center of government featuring Senator Duane Ankney of Colstrip, Representative Alice Buckley of Bozeman, Senator Tom Jacobson of Great Falls, Representative Terry Moore of Billings, former Representative Ray Shaw of Sheridan, and government relations executives Melissa Shannon and Jennifer Hensley.
