This past October, The Business of Cannabis partnered with Canada 2020, on a policy conference called Canadian Grown.On this episode, Jay and Alex Patterson (Executive Director, Canada 2020) spoke with Dr. Ruth Ross, from the University of Toronto. Ross is a professor and chair of the department of pharmacology and toxicology at the University of Toronto.
In her book, Coming Alive: The Journey to Reengage Your Life and Career, Ruth Ross talks about her personal decision to leave her corporate job in Human Resources after a thirty-year career as she was able to self-diagnose her disengagement in the workplace. She cites a Gallup poll putting employee disengagement at 87% globally – 68.5% in the U.S. alone, but what is engagement? Ross also states the different levels of disengagement, caused by a number of factors, such as frustration. However, this problem is not exclusive to employees. Managers can also become disengaged and they’ll have a hard time turning things around with their employees when the problem is prevalent at the top. Companies can turn it around, but they need to acknowledge the problem first. Bosses need to understand where their employees are on the spectrum and talking to their employees goes a long way in turning things around. Ross’ adage is, “if you’re a dead battery, you can’t charge others.” Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

31: Ruth Ross goes "all in" for better coworker relationships [podcast]
What's Your "And"?
Ruth Ross learned how to play poker at age 10 from her father. Little did she realize that it would give her the skills to develop into a Human Resources executive. Combined with her love of travel, she’s played poker all over the world — from Las Vegas to Monte Carlo. In this episode, Ruth talks about how poker gives her the ability to work on her “gut instinct” to read others, which is often very useful in dealing with office issues. She parallels employee engagement with poker, saying that we’re each dealt a hand at work and we need to decide whether to fold or go “all in”. Ruth is an engagement evangelist, speaker, and author at R Squared Resources. She wrote the book “Coming Alive: The Journey to Reengage Your Life and Career”. Prior to this, Ruth spent 30 years as a Human Resources professional, working her way up to Executive Vice President. She graduated from Syracuse University with a BS in Human Development and Business. She later went on to get her MS in Counseling from Northeastern University.
