Lunch with a Leader – Barry Shrock

Barry ShrockHave you ever been around someone that just brightens your day?  Barry Schrock of Summit Coaching and Consulting Group is that kind of person.  Jim and I had lunch with him recently and from the moment we sat down, we both knew Barry was going to add value to our day.

Barry grew up in Ohio and like any Midwestern student, loved sports and underachieved in the classroom, until a day that changed his life.  He was called into an office by one of the coaches in the building who altered the path of his life forever.  This person shared they saw more potential in Barry than he saw in himself.  She saw Barry as a future teacher and coach!

Fast forward to today – Barry took the advice, changed his grades, redirected his path, and be became an outstanding educator, administrator, and successful basketball coach at the collegiate and high school levels.  He has used these leadership principles to guide thousands of individuals through the Clifton StrengthsFinder program to help them become the best person they could be.

The biggest takeaway for me during our time with Barry was how positive he was throughout our conversation.  He was not interested in us getting the “sales pitch” about his business, but he genuinely listened and cared about what we had to say and provided amazing feedback to questions we were asking him.

If you as an individual or your company is looking to go from good to excellent in production or leadership development, Barry and his group is worth a call.  You can reach Summit Coaching and Consulting at www.summitccg.com
