Better Business & Better Canada

1-degree had a couple of client speakers come in and share their journey and partnership with 1-degree, and how this has led to better business results. They were generous in sharing their insights and experiences of their culture and leadership transformations. Hear more about their stories in this summary video.
During the second part of our event, we all engaged in a discussion on a Canadian values assessment – “our future by design.” We had meaningful and insightful conversations about what Canadian values mean, where we can see them in action, and what key behaviours and initiatives are needed to activate desired Canadian values.
Creating a Better Canada starts with us and our personal values being more conscious about living our values. One key takeaway for many was that we can impact our community and our country by creating a space for healthy, rich dialogue on the values that mean the most to us like Caring, Accountability and Diversity. Through awareness and heathy dialogue on priority values will lead to action and a quality Canadian “future by design.”
