From Re-Opening to Re-Building: Alberta’s Post-COVID Economy
It will be a year-and-a-half none of us will forget. As the COVID pandemic begins to ease and Alberta businesses start to re-open, it is an ideal time to take stock of our economy. For some, re-opening will be fairly straightforward. Yet for many companies, re-opening will be hampered with labour shortages and weak consumer demand.

Leading for today's Challenges: Developing your left-hand dribble
Often, we become a leader because we were a very hard worker, then we struggle because we can't "work" our way into leadership. We act as if we are still pouring coffee and making Tim Horton's sandwiches even though we are now in charge of the entire store. The struggle of moving from worker to leader is even worse when the environment / team you are leading is different from the environment / team when you were a worker.
