What does it take to be a good leader?

This Saturday August 16th 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘What does it take to be a good leader?’ Someone who creates trust and safety? Someone who people want to follow? Someone who inspires us through word or example? Someone who conciliates? Or someone who stands their ground?

Leaders are all around us. They hold political office, run companies, gather people to their causes, organize in the community or simply ‘lead’ by their example. Some may have strong personalities and are outgoing, some may be shy, intensely private individuals. Some seek leadership out, some rise naturally out of the ranks, while others are forced into the spotlight and assume a role that they would have never asked for. So what makes a good leader? In politics, in business or in the community? What do you think? Join us on Saturday 8-9 PM! For more info on the show and to hear past shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com

Chris Jones Special Guest on It’s A Question Of balance with Ruth Copland Saturday August 16th 9-10 PM

This week I’m pleased to be interviewing Chris Jones, Bay Area singer-songwriter and band-leader of Scary Little Friends, which is Chris’s Folk-Rock brainchild with Charlie Knote on drums, Jon Payne on bass, and Patrick Blizinski on keys. An accomplished performer and song-writer, with much solo work behind him, Chris built his own studio in the Mission district to record the band’s debut album, “From the Beginning”, which features lilting vocals (ala Jeff Buckley) and surfs-up psychedelic guitar; a trademark of the “San Francisco Sound”. Based in both Santa Cruz and SF with underlying southern soul roots, strong songwriting is really the bread and butter of this band. They connect with their audience the old-fashioned way by offering authentic heartfelt performances that fulfill our desire to connect. Join us Saturday 9-10 PM to hear how Chris weathered the lows of the professional music scene to rise again with Scary Little Friends. I’ll also be playing some songs from their album and one track that has never been heard before! For more info and to hear previous shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com

Are Some Lives Worth More Than Others?

This Saturday August 9th 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Are some lives worth more than others?’ The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." But are we all equal or in fact are some lives worth more than others? Do we weigh the brutal death of a child in America in the same way as the death of a child in the Middle East or Africa? There are huge outpourings of public grief at the death of an individual celebrity such as John Lennon or Princess Diana. What engenders this response? Do we value a person’s life more depending on what they have achieved, what part of the world they come from, how much we can relate to them? Is there an unconscious dehumanizing of people in some cases to justify decisions taken or to help us process tragedy?  What do you think? Join us on Saturday!

Mick Dawson Special Guest on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland Saturday August 9th 9-10 PM

This week I’m pleased to be interviewing Mick Dawson - former Royal Marines Commando, film-maker, sailor, adventurer and motivational speaker. Having seen active service in the Falklands War at the age of 17 and then again in the Middle East, Mick followed his military career with the pursuit of his lifelong passion for the ocean becoming a professional sailor skippering luxury yachts across the globe. Simultaneously he was looking for exciting challenges. These have taken the form of epic rows across the world’s greatest oceans. He has rowed the Atlantic and is the world record holder with Chris Martin for rowing the North Pacific. Mick Dawson and Chris Martin are the first and only people ever to successfully row almost 7,000 miles across the North Pacific Ocean from Choshi in Japan into San Francisco. Armed with his camera Mick filmed the whole endeavour and Discovery Channel subsequently produced a hugely popular documentary of this epic voyage. When he’s not working defending shipping from Somali pirate attacks, Mick can be found on the ocean he loves skippering yachts or presenting motivational talks to inspire others to follow their dreams.
