The Scuttlebutt Podcast - The podcast for service members and veterans building a life outside the military.

In this episode, Brock talks with Micah Taylor. 

Micah spent 20 years in the National Guard working in many positions, but heavily focused on training. In this conversation we talk about the guard as an augment to your life and the good things and bad that come with it. Micah has a passion for the concept of 'safety in teams' and how to breed that. That brings us to talk through her formula to promote it and develop it internally. We also talk through how she promotes development of her team members by adhering to a strict timeline for growth.
