RealAg Radio, Sept 2: Human resources, labour, and leadership


Today’s episode is a special one, in light of Labour Day. In this episode, hear from:

  • Author and speaker Doug Lipp, on putting the ‘culture’ into ‘agriculture’;
  • General Rick Hillier, former chief of defence staff for the Canadian Armed Forces, talks leadership and the importance of people;
  • Jeneen Abrams, soybean breeder at Purdue University who grew up in Philadelphia, believes in the power of diversity to entice people into agriculture;
  • Kristjan Hebert, farmer at Moosomin, Sask, believes we need to re-think how to “sell” the farm as an employment opportunity.
