We welcome Doug Smith as a new member!

Doug is an independent Lotscoach® with Scandinavian Leadership.

Scandinavian Leadership, based in Sweden and the U.S., has been on the market as LOTS® for forty three years with assignments in more than 60 countries including Canada. Scandinavian Leadership now has a Canadian Lotscoach® in Toronto who will work in Canada and internationally.

Doug was the President & CEO of Arla Foods in Canada for 22 years and he worked as a Lotscoach® facilitator in Denmark, China, Germany, Netherlands and Russia for Arla Foods. The LOTS® process has also been used in Arla Foods Canada for many years.

As a Lotscoach® Doug will use LOTS® as a leadership tool for facilitating leader, team and business /organizational development.
LOTS® Philosophy and Process

To be able to run a successful business/organization today – and tomorrow – we need structure and a common language that permeates the entire organization.
It should be clear to everyone what we are doing and why, and for whom we are doing it. Having a clear vision of how we would like our world to be increases the possibilities of experiencing meaning, joy and financial success in our organization and makes our work more productive.
LOTS® is a leadership process which provides leaders and co-workers with an inspiring philosophy and tools for reflection, decision making, implementation and follow-up. LOTS® can successfully be applied in big and small issues.
With open process questions accompanied by open analysis questions and reflection tools, LOTS® offers a holistic view throughout the whole process. LOTS® makes us think and act Outside-in and Inside-out in a balanced way, i.e. true customer and stakeholder orientation.

It helps us to get a common view on why we do what we do and how to do it in an appreciated and successful way. LOTS® helps us to move in the same direction in a positive, conscious and profitable way.
You can contact Doug through info@scandinavianleadership.com, his phone number: 416 277 0806 or email: doug@dcsmanagementconsulting.com.

News Release, from IKEA Burlington.

News Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IKEA Canada Commemorates 40 Years of Iconic Design in Canada with
IKEA Then & Now Exhibit
Burlington, ON – IKEA Canada is opening an exhibit in downtown Toronto to celebrate its 40th anniversary in Canada. Hosted at the Design Exchange, Canada’s Design Museum, IKEA Then & Now will take visitors on a journey through the decades to demonstrate how IKEA has helped shape life at home in Canada. The exhibit is free to the public and will run from October 21st to 30th.

IKEA Then & Now tells the story of IKEA in Canada, featuring rooms displaying iconic IKEA furniture from the 1970’s to today, with a glimpse into the future. Inspired by the IKEA Museum in Älmhult, Sweden, the exhibit also pays homage to the ancestry of IKEA home furnishings and its unique democratic design philosophy of creating products that help create a better everyday life through their form, function, quality, sustainability and affordable price.
“Canadians have welcomed IKEA into their homes for the past 40 years and we are delighted to have reached this anniversary together,” said Dave McCabe, Acting President, IKEA Canada. “The IKEA Then & Now exhibit offers visitors a chance to take a trip down memory lane, remembering how our homes have evolved over the last four decades. The exhibit also offers a behind the scenes look at the IKEA brand and business, which we are confident will continue to grow in Canada for the next 40 years and beyond.”
There will be many more things to experience at the exhibit, including a ball pit for both the young and young at heart. Visitors will also have the opportunity to be featured on the front cover of this year’s IKEA Catalogue. And, just for dropping by, visitors will have a chance to win a week-long dream trip for two to the design capital of the world, Stockholm, Sweden.

IKEA Then & Now runs from October 21st to 30th at the Design Exchange, 234 Bay St., Toronto.  Admission is free to the public. The hours of operation are as follows: Monday – Friday: 9am – 7pm   Saturday & Sunday: 10am – 6pm
