As we get into the meat of our second season, we have another heavy hitter guest for all of you today! Kathryn McLay is the Chief Executive Officer at Sam's Club US and is an inspiring leader whose wisdom we cannot wait to share with our listeners. Kath was promoted to this position at the company just before the pandemic hit and we get to hear all about her journey leading up and during this period.
Kath unpacks the strategies and actions that have helped her and the team manage and take advantage of the uncertainty we have all faced before we get into deeper thoughts on leadership, gender, and race. Our guest also talks about her earlier years, time spent at Woolworths in Australia, and the roots of her business and leadership philosophy.
We like to think of Kath as a humble unicorn, someone firmly grounded in bringing authenticity and grace to her role. Listeners can expect to come away from this fantastic conversation with some wonderful insight into the inner workings of a high-level professional and her organization, as well as some inspiring ideas on what it takes to get the most out of a team during tumultuous times.
