Jeff McManus grows things. As the Director of Landscape Services at the University of Mississippi, he grows plants...he grows people...he grows ideas. Jeff is a problem-solver, understanding that doing more with less is a 21st century mandate. He took on the challenge of managing a multi million dollar landscaping beautification implementation project. Faced with a demand for excellence and high productivity, and a stagnant budget. Jeff knew that growing the people was critical to growing the plants. He developed his GROW theory: Greatness, Resiliency, Opportunity and Wisdom- a management and professional development approach.

Listen as Dr. Joey interviews Jeff on this episode of Faith Positive Radio about how his faith shapes his leadership and his new book, Growing Weeders into Leaders.
