The podcast episode is all about successful supervision. No, I’m not an expert or anything, but it’s something I’m passionate about and work hard at. Leading others to achieving their goals is part of my Why in life. It’s a combination of what I’ve learned through years through trial, error, failure, and reassessment.

Big shout-out to Dustin Rasmdell (@HigherEd_Geek) and the folks at the Student Affairs Collective for inviting me to guest on their podcast!


I’d love to hear your comments and feedback on the episode. I love talking about supervision and leadership!
