115: Taking a Hold of Your Future PLUS an Announcement
We're in a unique time. When it comes to finding a career that is your true fit, we're facing so many options - embrace the opportunity! In this episode, I reflect on an enlightening week spent in London working with former Prime Minister of the UK, Tony Blair, and the Tony Blair Institute, and seeing where opportunity led me. So what are the doors that you're going to open to see what then opportunities are for you? Because there is no "I could never do that" anymore.

102: Growing a career and a family - interview with Summer Hinton Lang
There is a lot of fear for many women in the workforce around what will happen when they decide to add "mom" to their resume. How will their colleagues and managers react? What will happen to their job? Will they still have the same level of respect that they've worked years to build, or will it all have disappeared by the time they come back from parental leave? Typically the only way to know is to ask, and for women to be brave and speak out about their anxiety and expectations around how companies treat expectant parents. And companies need to be ready to listen. One woman who did just that is Summer Hinton Lang, Global COO at BMO, who joins me this episode to speak about her experience and what ultimately sparked a LinkedIn post that has nearly recieved one thousand likes. --- Be You: The World Will Adjust is a weekly, Toronto podcast hosted by leading adviser in recruiting and personal development coaching, Jim Beqaj.
