Episode 23 - Do stats really count? Conversation with Statistics Canada

Do stats really count? AConversation with Statistics Canada Welcome to the 5th episode of season 4 of the Literacy Quebec Podcast! In this week’s episode we are talking about statistics! Numbers can be scary and confusing, but with help from Samuel Dupéré, Manager, Montréal Data Service Centre, Statistics Canada we learn why data is important and how we can learn to use data to advocate and show impact. We also learn that it is important to ask the right questions and how to look for reliable sources of information. Statistics Canada is a public service that is available to community members and is a valuable resource especially to non-profit organisations. They have recently expanded their services to help build the capacity of individuals and organisations to become more literate in developing surveys, collecting, using and understanding data through workshops and presentations.

Episode 21 - How to Fail Successfully in 2020

Happy 2020! Welcome to the 3rd episode of season 4 of the Literacy Quebec Podcast! In this week’s episode we recorded our regular book club at the LQ office. We discussed the book Dare to Lead by Brene Brown, which fits perfectly in with the topic we wanted to launch into 2020 with How to Fail Successfully in 2020. We also talk about Cal Newport’s Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World to learn about how to reduce busywork and increase purposeful work. Some of the questions we discussed after reading the section of Dare to Lead were: 1) Did you make any resolutions for 2020? Why/why not? 2) What are some markers of success to you? 3) What is failure to you? 4) Are failures the opposite of successes? 5) How can failures be useful to you? 6) Brene Brown talks a lot about the connections between failure, shame and vulnerability. What did you think of her tools for self-reflection? 7) What are some of your own Shitty First Drafts? Why did we choose this topic of Failure (a dirty word!) when everybody else is taking about Success and making New Year Resolutions? Well, through our discussion about how we each felt about failure, some of the failures in our own lives and learning new ways to deal with failure when it happens, we found that failure in almost every case was necessary in order for us to form deeper relationships with people, deeper and more meaningful work in our careers, becoming more stable and emotionally resilient, making better decisions in life, and living in a more content, grateful, happy state.
