A big part of being a successful leader is cultivating good personal relationships, because even in today's digitally connected world face-to-face matters, says Ron Bremner.
"They should be teaching this stuff in school. They should be teaching this in high school," said the former broadcast executive and one-time president of the NHL's Calgary Flames. From what he's seen it is not happening enough. Since 2002, Bremner has been coaching high level executives and providing leadership training through his firm, Gold Medal Consulting. "It doesn't matter how smart you are and what your marks are, you need to be able to work with people," he said. Ron Bremner Ron Bremner will be leading sessions on how to develop and nurture strong personal relationships at the Georgie-Odette Leadership Symposium on Jan. 31 at the Caboto Club in Windsor. He is one of 14 speakers, including Mozilla Corporation CEO Gary Kovacs and PepsiCo chief human resources officer Cynthia Trudell. "I'm not the smartest person in the world, but I always took an interest in people," said Bremner, who grew up in Hamilton. "I never lost sight of the fact that I was very, very lucky to be in the positions I was in." His mother, a hairdresser, and his father, who worked on the assembly line in a Ford plant, taught him employees at all levels of a business are integral to its success, he said. It kept him focused on people throughout his corporate career, he said. He and his wife took a sabbatical after his tenure with the Flames from 1996 to 2001. Then Bremner decided to start his consulting firm because he saw a need for coaching and mentoring of high level executives, he said. "The old saying that it's lonely at the top has never been more true," said Bremner. Ron Bremner, president of Gold Medal Consulting
