1. SHARED VALUES MATTER to Michael McCain Tony Chapman 38:59

Michael McCain is an incredible human being, and a dear friend. I admire Michael as a father, philanthropist, passionate Canadian, and one of our most respected leaders. Michael has, what I believe, is the answer to the future of capitalism. A sharp and relentless focus on shared values where every stakeholder, including Planet Earth, has a seat at the table, versus shareholder value where one wins over the other. An organization that is driven by a higher purpose than profit. This isn’t a mission statement, tucked behind framed glass, this is a path that the entire company he leads, Maple Leaf Foods is racing on.  To date Maple Leaf is the first major food company to be carbon neutral, targeting e a 50% reduction in waste by 2025, and their end game is to become the most sustainable protein company on Planet Earth. 

In this podcast, we learn about Michael’s life story, the incredible bond he had with his Father, the darkest moment in his career where 23 people lost their lives because of a listeria outbreak in his plant.  You will also hear how Michael fearlessly called out then President Trump for his reckless acts, and being a narcissist, and so much more. 

I would also encourage you to share the podcast with any young adults as the many lessons Michael shares apply as much to them, as to you.

John Stackhouse, the former Editor and Chief of the Globe and Mail, and today an SVP in the Office of the CEO of RBC, best-selling author and the host of one of my favourite podcasts, the Disruptors, joins me to talk about Michael’s unique capabilities and to share his thoughts on capitalism and leadership.
