My Favorite Mistake — 68: Focusing on the Work More Than the Relationships: Ahmed Aref

CEO of CorpoCure, host of the “Values & Leadership” Podcast


My guest for Episode #68 is Ahmed Aref, a global leadership coach, speaker, and strategic partner. He is an Egyptian currently living in Saudi Arabia, so he is my first connected with either country. He is CEO of CorpoCure, which produces the “Values & Leadership Podcast” and I was his guest there for Episode 11.

He is also an Associate Coach with Global Coach Group and Ahmed is an Executive and Team Coach with Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching. You can learn more through his LinkedIn page and his YouTube channel.

  • What mistake did Mark make but then NOT edit out from the recording?
    Not editing it out was an intentional choice, not an oversight…
