It was from his upbringing, close family ties and lessons learned from his mother that Carlos Cubia, the Global Chief Diversity Officer and Senior Vice President of Walgreens Boots Alliance, first discovered what it means to be a leader. The leadership lessons that were instilled in Carlos at a young age have been reinforced by his extensive leadership experience in Corporate America with companies such as Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Safeco Insurance. In this episode, we explore leadership through the honest, open mentality of “never being the smartest person in the room” and discuss the key actions leaders should take to cultivate inclusive atmospheres, lead change, and empower others to take initiative.
