Episode 1: Are You a Manager or a Leader?

In the inaugural episode of "Director Download," Justin, Beth, Allie, and special guest Ron Day kick off a new podcast focused on many pivotal issues that will be addressed at NASFAA's Leadership & Legislative Conference & Expo. In the first episode, the group dives into what it means to move from being a manager to a leader. The group discusses which characteristics set leaders apart from managers, how leaders can empower their teams to grow professionally and produce quality outcomes, and how those in managerial and leadership roles can use their time and their attention strategically to focus on the big picture. Maura Nevel Thomas, an award-winning international speaker and trainer on individual and corporate productivity, also joins Justin for a one-on-one interview to share her expertise in building leadership skills and mentoring employees effectively.
