    128: How to eliminate bureaucratic red tape and bad excuses, with Martin Lindstrom

    128: How to eliminate bureaucratic red tape and bad excuses, with Martin Lindstrom

    Martin's book THE MINISTRY OF COMMON SENSE: https://amzn.to/3962pE9
    Meet New York Times bestselling author Martin Lindstrom (one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People).
    We interviewed Martin about his new book THE MINISTRY OF COMMON SENSE: How to Eliminate Bureaucratic Red Tape, Bad Excuses, and Corporate BS.
    Doesn’t your workplace drive you crazy when you get cc’ed on irrelevant email chains, invited to unnecessary meetings, or forbidden by company policy to do the exact thing your boss commands you to do?  These and many other frustrations stem from the same underlying cause: a lack of common sense! In an interview Martin discusses the most typical roadblocks to common sense:
    (Bad) customer experience Politics Technology Meetings and Power Points Rules, Regulations, and Policies Compliance and Legal And has remedies for all. 
    Martin Lindstrom is the founder and chairman of Lindstrom Company, a global branding & culture transformation firm, operating across five continents and more than 30 countries. TIME Magazine has named Lindstrom one of the “World’s 100 Most Influential People,” and for three years running, Thinkers50, has selected Lindstrom to be among the world’s top 50 business thinkers. Among the companies he advises are Burger King, Lowes, Boar’s Head, Beverly Hills Hotels, Pepsi, Nestle and Google. Lindstrom is the author of seven books including several New York Times bestsellers that have been translated into 60 languages. The Wall-Street Journal praised his book Brand Sense as “one of the five best marketing books ever published,” and his book Small Data as “revolutionary,” and TIME called his book Buyology “a breakthrough in branding.”

Michael is....

He definitely has the skill and knows how to coach others. Most of his podcasts allow us to think how to improve our own business and not give away one size fit all approach. Thanks again for lifting all boats with your hard work.

The podcast I didn’t know I needed

As an older undergraduate student and operations manager, I am finding value in every podcast here so far and in the entire series on the Case Interviews podcast. Today I cited “The Organizational Design Stream” in a discussion assignment for a class. At work I have been more cognizant of how I communicate to get my message across in a concise and more effective manner. Thank you Michael and FC team!
