What emotion would you feel if someone told you you had to be in court tomorrow to solve a dispute? For most of us outside the legal profession, having to be a part of the justice system can be daunting. But today’s guest, Ron Veale, joins us to share how there’s another way, Alternative Dispute Resolution.
You may recognize the last name of our guest, who, beyond his accomplishments in politics, the law and being Chief Justice on the Supreme Court of Yukon until his recent retirement, also raised our host, Dave Veale. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, Dave’s Dad, is on the podcast! Ron shares some great judicial insights with us and a few family tales. Ron also discusses with Emily, who experienced the personal injury side of the law first hand, areas that could be improved and other methods available.

Do you consider yourself to be intelligent? Many of us would humbly agree that we are and be able to list the skillsets where we show off those smarts. But, how emotionally intelligent are you? Do you know how to start to measure that? Do you know how you’ve built your resilience over your life? It begins with self-awareness, and someone who helps us be self-aware is our guest, Marilyn Orr.
Marilyn combines her Master’s in Counselling and all of her different Coaching certifications and years of experience to wear different hats to help her clients build their emotional intelligence, resilience and ability to become self-aware.

Do you consider yourself a leader? Leadership is not just about one cookie-cutter ideal. Traits and characteristics support different leadership styles, and we aren’t always aware we have. While you may be comparing yourself to someone whose been placed in a leadership role, questioning why you can’t be more like them, others may be looking at your innate abilities and appreciating how you help them grow.
We welcome a colleague and coachee of Emily’s, Phil Jewell, to join her and Dave, talking about different leadership styles and how his path through being an officer in the British Army brought out his leadership skills. This conversation helps to highlight how there are different leadership journeys, and it’s more about finding the right one for you. Phil shares what he is bringing to his clients as a coach and some concepts he feels will help others create impact.

What is your definition of a “successful” business? Did the words “Scale”, “Revenue”, or “Growth” enter into that? Ask yourself, is someone who creates impact and achieves their goals less successful because they are a small business or resist “scaling” to be a size they don’t want? Dave Veale and Emily Rodger talk with our guest Madeleine Shaw to understand how an entrepreneur can focus on "The Greater Good".
Madeleine is a serial social entrepreneur whose projects focus on creating good versus just profit. From being an early leader in the reusable menstrual products space to now as an author of the book “The Greater Good”, her work helps others see that their goals, perspective or needs are not something that should be overlooked.
