After the last episode with guest host Paul Critchley, I'm once again joined by Jamie Flinchbaugh for another “Lean Whiskey” podcast.
In Episode 6 of Lean Whiskey, Mark Graban and Jamie Flinchbaugh explore two icons as leaders and the impact they've had. Lee Iacocca and Ross Perot passed away recently, and we explore their impact on their companies and most importantly, on people.
We also enjoy a couple of Speyside single malt whiskeys, Jamie's from Glenrothes and Mark's from Balvenie. These are two different scotches but between both being from Speyside and both having sherry-cask maturing, they share some similarities.
Our listener question asked us to discuss the need for true humility in leadership that really values the people at the Gemba and how this naturally adds more value to the whole enterprise. After discussing this, we close by talking about our favorite non-lean podcasts. Scroll down for links and more.
Here is the sixth episode if you want to stream it:
