At Rural Computer Consultants (RCC), leadership goes beyond titles and positions. It permeates the company’s culture, fostering a sense of family and collaboration among its staff. This commitment to leadership is not only evident within RCC but extends to their involvement with the Women in Propane podcast, “Through the Leadership Lens.” Let’s explore how RCC’s leadership philosophy and the podcast intertwine, shaping a powerful impact on both their team and the wider propane industry.
Embracing Profound Advice from Industry Leaders
Freddie Ridler, Head of Business Growth at RCC and co-host of the Women in Propane podcast, understands that the podcast is about more than just branding and exposure. For Freddie, it’s the profound advice shared by the interviewed leaders that truly makes a difference. These seasoned professionals have earned their leadership positions through industry experience and remarkable accomplishments. The wisdom gained from these interviews not only motivates the RCC staff but also serves as a model for their own leadership practices.
Leadership Extends Beyond Titles
At RCC, leadership isn’t confined to managerial roles. It is a belief that everyone has the ability to make a difference with people. This inclusive view of leadership helps keep the RCC team grounded and fosters a sense of empowerment among all staff members. Whether in training sessions, customer installations, webinars, or technical support, the culture of trust and collaboration shines through. This approach allows RCC to extend their familial culture beyond their internal team and create an even larger RCC family among their customers.
“Being a leader doesn’t mean you are a manager or a supervisor. It doesn’t mean you are a president or a c-level executive. Being a leader means you are making a difference with people.” – Freddie Ridler
Cultivating a Family Culture
RCC’s family culture is a testament to their two-generation ownership and the values they have instilled. This culture of trust, collaboration, and support fills the entire organization. Staff members carry this sense of family to every interaction, be it with colleagues, customers, or the industry as a whole. It is this unique culture that sets RCC apart and creates a lasting impact on their team and the wider propane community.
Through their commitment to leadership and the Women in Propane podcast, RCC demonstrates that leadership is more than just a job title. It’s about making a positive impact, fostering collaboration, and cultivating a family culture. By embracing the wisdom shared by industry leaders and instilling a sense of empowerment among their staff, RCC continues to strengthen their position as leaders in the propane industry. Through their inclusive leadership philosophy and dedication to their RCC family, they are creating a ripple effect that extends far beyond their organization.
