Manager or leader - with Jim Bouchard

Wood Pro Expo: A regional marketplace for woodworking professionals
The Woodworking Network Podcast
April 21, 2022

The Woodworking Network Podcast Will Sampson talks about the differences between management and leadership and then chats with Jim Bouchard, founder of the Sensei Leadership Movement, about present-day lessons in leadership that we can take to heart and use in our business.


This episode of the Woodworking Network podcast was sponsored by Wood Pro Expo. It’s really easy for woodworkers to stay stuck inside, focused on their shops and production. But over the last couple of years, the pandemic has forced them be even more isolated than usual. Now it’s time to get out of the shop and resume life in the outside world, especially when it’s a chance to network with your woodworking business peers. That opportunity is coming April 27-29 in sunny San Diego as the Wood Pro Expo joins with the Closets Conference and Expo to offer an unparalleled opportunity to boost your business with intelligence on techniques, tools, and technology. Let’s get face to face again. Learn more at See you there.


Woodworking Network is a home for professional woodworkers, presenting technology, supplies, education, inspiration, and community, from small business entrepreneurs to corporate managers at large automated plants.
