Justin Trudeau has served as the prime minister of Canada since 2015. There’s a lot to dig into from his years in office — and from his life before, as well. He sits down with organizational psychologist Adam Grant to discuss lessons learned about leadership and how he navigated early struggles with impostor syndrome. He also shares his approach to maintaining motivation in the face of disapproval and criticism, how he encourages people to speak truth to power, why he considered quitting and what keeps him awake at night. (This interview was recorded for the “ReThinking with Adam Grant” podcast.)

    Dear Justin, you are so smart and amazing. I understand why people were in awe of you, considering who you. Being an elementary school teacher and snowboard instructor has certainly prepared you to be PM. Do us all a favour and declare a “CLIMATE EMERGENCY”, cancel the next election then throw and charge and PP with climate sabotage. The media will have your back.

    What an incompetent Liberal government lead by a narcissist. This guy won’t step down unless the Liberals wake up and clean house. Jagmeet and the NDP are to blame as well and don’t deserve one single vote.
    Trudeau actually thinks he speaks on behalf of Canadians, but when your a narcissist in his eyes he’s done nothing wrong. Worst PM in Canadian history. Both Trudeau and Jagmeet are traitors to this country. What a mess Canada is in because of them both!!

    The only thing Trudeau can teach at this point, is how to be a communist dictator. They TRULY were brave to keep the comments open for this, I concur. The only way you could even begin to be a leader now, is to leave and realize, you aren’t a leader. Take the “lead” on that.

    5:22 although I cant stand Trudeau. I actually found this interview pretty interesting so far. (Theres time dont worry) but I am actually interested in Trudeaus take on being the child of a PM. What it was like growing up and how he perceives the job differently now that he has it. Furthermore I actually found his comment on bot taking people seriously whether they like you or dislike you pretty insightful.

    I really hope Adam Grant was not involved in the selection of the candidate and that this was just something he was contractually bound to do.

    I respect Adam Grant and read a lot of his work on Leadership. But if this is his idea of someone we could take lessons in leadership from then I’m going to question anything he says.

    Honest question for all the haters here :
    I’ve scrolled a while to find anything even remotely resembling a reason for the hate, so anyone care to say why he is so hated ?
    Frankly, I don’t follow canadian politics, so all I see is in regards to international politics and there, he put canada in a rather good position and seems to be one of the more reasonable and capable heads of state.

    Reading the hate cult comments it became very clear that Kim was right about them and she isn’t voting for PP as well. These are MagaMaple yapping and nothing more. I was a conservative and the UCP is not my conservative party anymore. — On the eve of International Women’s Day, in March 2024, Campbell revealed “Beyond a Ballot” podcast, she revealed that while she believes that there are good people in the Conservative Party, she could not support current leader, Pierre Poilievre, because she believes that he is “liar and a hate-monger”.
    Former prime minister Kim Campbell called Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre a “liar and a hate-monger,” and suggested she won’t vote for his party in the next federal election
