- In terms of assessing individuals and their level of capability. It's still is an area that we struggle with, that I struggle with because people are very complex. The bigger challenge for me was when I moved from that role of business development, HR and legal and became the president of the company.
- How do you use this in terms of growing organization? We have now probably doubled the size of the company in people in the past four years. How do you make sure you're getting the right people into the right roles and then going back and reassessing?
- The next challenge is going to be as we get larger. You have to start thinking more in a more systematic way in succession planning. One challenge is always having to come back to the 80 20 rule. Compensation needs to be fair and equitable across an organization.
- I need to have more customer interaction than I have. I need to put more of my time on the orientation for everyone. Another challenge is making sure I have a personal relationship with each one of them. And I really need to be looking in terms of where is that next group of management going to come from.
- It was a great privilege to have worked directly with Elliot Jacks. He was a person who could always make you think. Today, this is one of the biggest challenges in the role I have. It's finding those kinds of moments.

- The Nova's Vision is helping to feed the world. Today we tie those same concepts into principles of sustainability. A part of that was using Requisite organization. It took a lot of work with the different managers to set up the roles.
- Everyone is not equal in an organization because there have decisions have to be made. If we're doing it well we're pushing down that decision making. And we're also empowering people more to work at a level that they really are comfortable with.

- Elliot always maintained a professional distance between himself and my father. He was employed in Glacier by the Works Council, not by the company itself. This enabled him to have some independence of his. Own. But there was also intense, personal clashes, but differences of opinion.
- When he became Managing Director of Joint Manager of Glacier in the late 30s, he was only 27 years old. In that same year he established the works council within Glacier.
