Guest: Rt. Honourable Beverley McLachlin
The Rt. Honourable Beverley McLachlin, Canada’s First Female Chief Justice and the 2023 ILA Distinguished Leadership Award Winner, joins Maureen to reflect on her leadership journey — from a farm in rural Alberta to the top court in the land. That journey has powerful perspectives on the decision-making process for leaders of all stripes: from law-firm partners to CEOs.
It’s inspiring, too! McLachlin overcame deeply entrenched sexism and other barriers, but forged on with a clear vision.
Here’s what Rt. Hon. McLachlin and Maureen cover:
- The many ways the legal profession offers lessons for leaders of every stripe;
- The qualities and skills judges must hone to make effective, balanced decisions — skills that will help your decision-making, too; and
- Why it’s so important to get your decisions right — but be willing to change them as new evidence comes in.
