Module 3: Sample Leadership Interview Selection I was fortunate to have the opportunity to talk with Nick Darin, Vice President of Finance and Technology for J&L Industrial Supply. He is indeed a very accomplished and dynamic individual as was evidenced during our discussion. Mr. Darin offered his thoughts and experience on leadership as well as sharing some of his own personal leadership philosophy. During our interview he displayed a command for the subject of leadership showing that this is an issue that he not only cares about, but that he has also devoted some time to exploring. Mr. Darin is an experienced financial professional and business manager. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan Dearborn with a degree in accounting and received his MBA from Central Michigan University. Mr. Darin is also a Certified Management Accountant and a member of the Institute of Managerial Accountants and Financial Executives International. He has almost twenty years of experience working in financial management and has held many different positions including modeling analyst, controller and executive positions. Mr. Darin was selected due to his extensive experience and acknowledged commitment to excellence. Additionally, I have the pleasure of working very closely with him on a daily basis and knew that his answers and comments would be very candid. I wanted to understand the steps that Mr. Darin had taken and how his leadership has developed over time because I would like to develop myself to move into a position as a financial executive in the future. Questions How would you define effective leadership? Leadership is the act (challenge) of aligning (vision) both human capital (competencies) and physical resources (land, machines, technology) to attain goals or aspirations. Do you think leadership develops with experience? Please explain.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
