Industry Spotlight – Kira Kyle

What is your life verse and why?

“For your Creator will be your husband;
    the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name!
He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel,
    the God of all the earth.”

Isaiah 54:5 (which is why my social media handles are kirakyle545). It’s the verse God gave me in the midst of discovering I was in a very broken marriage. It still reminds me that all I longed for in a Christ-centered marriage is still mine in my Maker and Savior.


Can you touch your tongue to your nose?
No, but would I want to?


What’s your hidden talent?
I can make an amazing Carrot Cake, thanks to my Aunt Kathy who shared her family’s southern recipe.


What’s your go-to roadtrip snack?
Oh, this is awful. I forbid myself from buying them any other time, but I’ve found that Little Debbie’s Nutty Buddy bars are helpful when I am running on empty. I’m sure it’s the intense sugar content. And Starbucks or Panera’s unsweetened black iced tea – ALWAYS iced tea.


What’s the last show you binged watch?
I’m not really a binge watcher, but I am fully committed to “This is Us” and “New Amsterdam” every week.


Favorite zoo animal?
Pandas (if I could find one), Polar Bears (also rare now), and Prairie Dogs (I know you said one, but I struggled to just list three.


Beach or mountains?
No one should have to choose.


What’s your middle name?
Nicolle. My dad tells me he misspelled it by mistake, but I love that it’s different. He also picked my first name from a book he was reading.


iPhone or Android?
Oh, please… iPhone. Always Apple. (although their charging cords are overpriced for no good reason)


Pizza toppings?
Green peppers, onions, and black olives with andouille sausage or Greek Pizza with feta and olives

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
