How to Be a Better Leader Now

first_imgHere is a really easy way to improve your performance as a leader or a manager.Your Best ManagerRemember the best manager you ever worked for?Do you remember how that manager made you feel about yourself? Do you remember how they helped you understand what you were capable of and the value that you could create?Your best manager made you feel good—or great—about yourself and your work. They made you feel that you could accomplish your goals, and they helped you grow. They had a positive impact on your life beyond the results you produced at work.You knew that your best manager (or boss) cared about you as a person, not as some cog in a wheel. When they challenged you to grow, it came from a good place.Your Worst ManagerRemember the worst manager you ever worked for? Do you remember how they made you feel about yourself? They made you feel that you were incompetent or stupid. They didn’t help you to see that you could be or do more, did they?Your worst manager made you feel bad about yourself. They did nothing to help you grow, mostly because they were threatened by your growth. Who knows, if you grew bigger, someone might recognize how small they were and reveal them as an impostor.Your worst manager treated you like a transaction, like a means to an end, and not an end in of itself. They didn’t value you, and they made sure you knew it.They Manager They NeedThere is a difference between a manager and a leader. A great manager is also a great leader. And great leaders serve their people.If you think back to the person who had the most positive impact on your life as a manager or leader, you know that they cared about you, they saw something in you that you didn’t yet recognize, and they pushed you to grow.If you think back to your worst manager or leader, you will remember that they didn’t care about you as a person, they weren’t at all concerned by your growth (and were most likely threatened by it), and they allowed you to be less than you were capable of. They may have even neglected you.What did you learn from your best manager or leader that you should immediately adopt into the way you lead and serve your team?What did your worst manager teach you that you want to avoid repeating?What does each individual member of your team need from you now?

BC court suspends residential school cases handled by Calgary firm

first_imgBy Kathleen MartensAPTN National NewsWINNIPEG– A British Columbia court has suspended dozens of residential school survivor compensation cases handled by a Calgary law firm, APTN National News has learned.A B.C. Supreme Court judge suspended the cases of 50 residential school survivors that are being handled by Calgary law firm Blott and Company.The cases deal with compensation for serious sexual and physical abuses suffered by survivors at Indian Residential Schools under the Independent Assessment Process (IAP).The details of why the judge issued the ruling are currently under a publication ban.The ruling however, could impact as many as 3,000 IAP cases that were all being handled by the law firm.It’s the second time in as many months that lawyers and the IAP have come under the microscope.In October, APTN reported on a memo issued to lawyers by chief IAP adjudicator Daniel Ish. He warned lawyers in June to clean up their acts when it came to dealing with IAP clients or they might not get paid,More than 200 lawyers have clients participating in IAP.Ish cited suspected “unethical” practices such as not meeting with clients prior to the hearing.As part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, the government of Canada is committed to paying lawyers 15 per cent of the compensation awards their clients receive if their claims are ruled legitimate by IAP adjudicators.last_img read more

Backcountry owner estimates his store might not open until next week

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. —  The owner of Backcountry in Fort St. John says that the extent of the damage sustained during a break and enter that saw a man drive a pickup truck through the store’s exterior wall means he might not be reopening until next week.At around 4:30 Tuesday morning, a man at the wheel of a stolen pickup truck smashed through Backcountry’s exterior cinderblock wall before driving right into the store. Backcountry co-owner Steve Hewitt said that while nothing was stolen from the business, the suspect caused a “massive” amount of damage to the store and its contents.Hewitt said that the suspect struck one of the building’s main support columns, and the store’s owners are waiting for an engineer to assess whether the building is still structurally sound. He estimated repairs to the exterior wall could be anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000, while at least $75,000 worth of the store’s merchandise, displays, and equipment was also wrecked. Despite the unfortunate incident, Hewitt added that the feedback from the community has been incredibly positive as the store cleans up from the B&E and prepares to reopen.“We’ve just been inundated with calls from friends, customers, fellow business owners, everyone just offering help in one form or another,” said Hewitt. It’s kind-of reestablished our faith in humanity after having that stripped from us.”Hewitt said the store’s owners should have an update on when they’ll reopen after the engineer’s assessment is complete.last_img read more
