048 BA: Jeff McManus, Growing Weeders into Leaders
This is one of my favorite interviews so far.
Imagine winning multiple national championships for the most beautiful college campus in America. At a place where tens of thousands of people are tailgating in the middle of campus during an SEC football weekend late into Saturday night. And as dawn breaks on a peaceful Sunday morning, the mountains of trash have magically disappeared. In that moment, you understand WHY the team at the University of Mississippi are national champions.
Taking his grounds staff, affectionately known as “weeders”, and developing them into “leaders” has been a joyous challenge that reaped acres of rewards in the form of national recognition by the Princeton Review, PGMS, Newsweek and every faculty, staff, student and visitor who has walked onto the Ole Miss Campus. Building on that momentum, Jeff has designed a professional development plan for his Weeders called Landscape University – a replicable training program that promotes the individual’s innate ability to GROW.
