EP. 37 Lorenzo Oss-Cech - UPDATE ”No Fault” Insurance in British Columbia

July 20, 2022

As a survivor of a very serious car accident, lawyer Lorenzo Oss-Cech knows the importance of focused client care and sound legal advice. Join us today as we look at recent developments and case law regarding the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia’s Enhanced Care system (or no fault system). This system was designed to increase client care and remove legal fees and other costs associated with motor vehicle accident claims decreasing costs to drivers. It also removed an individual’s right to sue and some think that puts injured and vulnerable people at risk. Whatever side you take, this is a quickly developing story that will be interesting to watch.

The Notice of Civil Claim is also linked in our blog at: https://ascendlegal101.blogspot.com/

Lorenzo Oss-Cech is a partner with the firm Hutchison Oss-Cech Marlatt. Lorenzo has 30 years experience in brain injury settlements, general civil litigation, ICBC injury claims, medical malpractice, construction and building litigation, wealth management and estate planning, employment law, and corporate securities litigation. Having lived in numerous countries, Lorenzo is fluent in four languages. He is very involved in community activism and volunteering and is currently a board member and legal counsel for The David Foster Foundation.

Important Note: People should seek their own legal advice tailored to their own situation. These discussions are for information and discussion only.

Series - Reinventing Your Corporate Culture: Define and Declare Your Values

One of the most important steps in reinventing your corporate culture is to ensure that your words and actions are in alignment with your values. Before you can assess that, you need to define and declare your values. Once values are established, you can take specific action to move closer to your corporate culture aligning with those values. Now you can truly answer if you are in integrity when it comes to your corporate culture. Are your values, words and actions in integrity? What if they are not? Then you’ve got some work to do.

Email us at: ascendlegal101@gmail.com to request a pdf of the List of Values and we will be happy to send that to you. You can also access a .jpg on our blog (link below).

EP. 35 Ramona Reynolds - The Hidden Subculture

June 16, 2022

Are you in integrity when it comes to your corporate culture? Is your philosophy about cultivating culture in alignment with the reality of your firm experience? What actually happens in your firm? Who gets a pass when others don’t? Today let’s enter the operating system – the subconscious culture of the firm where all of those unwanted habits and behaviours reside, so we can change them to more productive modes to support our corporate culture, business goals and well-being.

The next episode of our series on Reinventing Your Corporate Culture: Chaos to Clarity

We all know you already have a corporate or from culture and whether it has evolved intentionally or haphazardly, it's there. What we're trying to figure out today is whether we have to break it and put it back together, if we need to start from scratch, or make subtle adjustments. Whether you're inheriting an existing corporate culture or creating your own, we must start by getting clear on what we're working with now, and probably more importantly, what we want to work with. Getting clear on how you want your firm to feel and be. What does that mean? What does that mean to you?

ReInventing Your Corporate Culture: Start As You Mean To Go

We’ve already talked about the necessity of updating your firm culture to attract and retain staff. We’ve talked about the dancing around problems and the problem people. We’ve talked about how much staff turn-over is really costing you. Where do we go from here?

Is your “money maker” really costing you? Have you dealt with that one bad apple or are you dancing around the problem?  Do you know how much staff turn-over is really costing you? Is this cost of doing business costing you more than money? What about your reputation and longevity of your firm?

EP. 31 Ramona Reynolds - Tough Love for the Old Boys

May 26, 2022

How do you manage when there is staff turn-over? There is a lot of value in this video. I know you can pull it off because you have to. You have to. And we wouldn’t be talking about this if it wasn’t a thing. One of the most challenging parts of my business these days is leading “well established” law firms into changing their corporate culture to attract and retain new staff. We have been doing things a certain way for a long time. It is easy to become complacent in an environment where we are not forced to keep up - but now it's game on. Get out your legal pad and pen and start taking notes so you can ask these questions to someone in your office who knows the answers.

May 12, 2022

Do you remember who you were when you were a little kid? Do you remember all of the unique gifts that you put away? Do you have unique presence? I only hang out with people who appreciate my unique presence. What’s your greatness? Do you allow yourself to speak it? Like, out loud, with words and stuff?

EP. 29 Trish Machiri - Walking Her Talk - Aircraft Maintenance to Aviation Entrepreneur

April 10, 2022

After being silenced by “well meaning” people who presupposed that Trish’s clients would not share her values; and after being told that by speaking her truth her business would be ruined, Trish Machiri found the courage to let the words come again. After a literal break, she rose to build an aviation business, with a focus on safety, that is worthy of her best clients who not only share her values, but also her understanding that jets love to fly. It’s almost embarrassing how much of a fan-girl I am here because I admire Trish so much for her courage, tenacity, experience, and willingness to share despite all the people who told her all the ways she would be better off staying quiet. A short introduction here is not expansive enough to cover all the ground Trish and I covered together. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

You can connect with Trish at www.charterly.ca or on LinkedIn.

EP. 28 Ramona Reynolds - Setting the Intention: Speak Your Truth

April 6, 2022

Speaking your truth. What does that mean to you? When I was 38, I got a tattoo on my back that said: “Speak Your Truth”. I didn’t want it to be visible to everyone, but I wanted to be able to see it when I looked in the mirror. I wanted it to be a reminder. And then I ignored it. Now my friends, it’s GAME ON! Some truths must still be spoken – let’s set that intention and see where that leads us.
