073 – Growing Weeders into Leaders

In this episode I welcome Jeff McManus to the podcast, who is the Director of Landscape Services for the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). Jeff has a new book titled Growing Weeders into Leaders: Leadership Lessons from the Ground Level, and we explore what it takes to create and maintain a pleasing environment on a college campus. Jeff and his team of professionals have won several national honors for the beauty of the Ole Miss campus, and he joins me from Oxford, Mississippi (USA) via Skype.
