Kevan's back from paternity leave! Which makes this the perfect episode to take a break. Listen in on a lively conversation between two colleagues about the value of taking time away from work to see both yourself and your work more clearly. Kevan and Veronica draw on their own and each other's experience to explore the topic of leaves, trust, identity, and what being a human-centred organization is all about.
In our fifth episode, engagement strategist and mediation facilitator Ceri Rees unpacks why assertion is as key to connection as empathy, and how to hold the two in balance. Also on the conversational agenda: how to listen effectively, why it's ok to sometimes wait before tackling a tough issue, and how our beliefs about conflict influence our emotional response and actions.

We welcome senior leadership consultant, mindfulness teacher, and Sauder School of Business professor Alex Trisoglio to the show to discuss what it takes to lead change in an increasingly volatile and uncertain world.

In our first episode, Kevan and Veronica discuss the human reality behind the jargon-y buzzword of "Digital Transformation." A candid conversation about the business necessity and cultural impact of digital change as it transforms our workplaces and lives.
