Episode Summary

Magdy Karam reading from ‘Dare to Lead’ by Brené Brown and discussing his leadership tactics.

Let me be blunt: most of our learning experiences are TERRIBLE. They are not bad, just thoroughly, blandly, mediocre. I’m speaking specifically about learning in most organisations, and we’ve all had the experience of those courses that seem to suck the life out of us. But not every course, not every program. Magdy Karam is the Chief Learning Officer for Microsoft Canada. Over the years as a leader, he has scaled successful learning and development experiences, and in this episode we get into the details of how he has successfully yielded results through shaping a learning culture.

Magdy reads from ‘Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.’ by Brené Brown. [reading begins at 11:10]

  • Evading hero syndrome. [16:33]

  • Making inclusion a reality. [22:40]
  • Leading as an introvert. [25:00]
  • “Getting comfortable with what you’re doing means it’s time for change.” [31:24]
