    Marry your Vision

    Marry your Vision

    On this episode of Come Rain or Shine, Andre Young, Founder of You Evolving Now LLC, joins the show to discuss his career journey.
    A former athlete and mental health therapist, Andre unpacks his drive as an entrepreneur and desire to motivate organizations through meaningful leadership practices. As he notes, the problem with some leaders is they marry their vision and the path they forge as opposed to their ‘why’; however, this often leads to burnout and disillusion. While many managers try to stir their team to outcomes, Andre argues it’s far better for them to make their name synonymous with what they do, perform beyond good intentions, and inspire the same mentality within their influence.

    Disrupt Yourself through AI

    Disrupt Yourself through AI

    On this episode of Come Rain or Shine, Neil Sahota, IBM Master Inventor and United Nations AI Advisor, joins the show to discuss the evolution and future of artificial intelligence.
    A renowned artificial intelligence expert, Neil knows a thing or two about technology, computers, and their disruption on human existence. While most have a general idea of what AI can do, the short-term implications, he notes, are immense from business to home life to how we interact relationally.
    As for business leaders, Neil suggests now is the time to embrace trends and to view AI as an opportunity to rise above the noise and competitors. Even for those hesitant to employ the science, far better to research, brainstorm possibilities, and go from there as opposed to the contrary.

    The Drive of Disney

    The Drive of Disney

    On this episode of Come Rain or Shine, Jeffrey Barnes, best-selling author and Disney keynote speaker, joins the show to discuss leadership lessons from the life of Disney.
    As Jeffrey charges us, to live like Walt comes down to 4 c’s: Consistency, courage, confidence, and curiosity.
    While humble beginnings are often a prerequisite, by focusing on big-ticket dreams and building passion around your schedule, one can discover higher levels of success.
    Whatever your business is, whatever your team or story looks like, board your train and don’t look back. Even if your world feels like riding Space Mountain for the first time, you’ll eventually reach your intended destination.

As one who has taken the path less traveled, Michael is no stranger to provident happenstance.

    Promoting Equality in Politics

    Promoting Equality in Politics

    On this special episode of Come Rain or Shine, Laura Mae Lindo, an activist and Member of the Provincial Parliament for Kitchener Centre, joins the show to discuss inclusion in education. With work partly centered on challenging on-campus racism, Laura Mae unpacks the psychology behind communal engagement as a minority. To calibrate subjective expectations, educators should embrace the opportunity to promote objective thinking - a process that requires building relationships and trust over consistent dialogue.
    As a Member of the Standing Committee on Regulations and Private Bills, a Critic for Citizenship and Immigration Services, and a Critic for Anti-racism, Laura Mae hopes to inspire increased quality in Canadian political spheres and for those in business to see antiracist work as leadership work.

Learning never stops

Dan has a talent for turning his learning and leadership experiences into very helpful stories that anyone can consider and use in their business.

I also recommend his book “how’s the culture in your kingdom”.

July 7, 2022, episode is woke CRT. Go woke, go broke.

Extremely upset over the total garbage episode of July 7, 2022. Go woke with CRT and other leftist garbage and go broke. Unsubscribed. You chose poorly.

I really enjoyed being a guest on Dan’s podcast. He is an inspirational leader and we had a great conversation on bridging cultural differences. I loved the energy and enthusiasm that he brought to the table.
