Katie Anderson & Isao Yoshino Talk About Their “Favorite Mistakes”


I've stopped sharing every single episode of the “My Favorite Mistake” podcast here on the blog, but I will share episodes that feature folks from the Lean community.

Today's “My Favorite Mistake” is one such episode, featuring my friend (and frequent Lean Blog Interviews guest) Katie Anderson. We're also joined by Isao Yoshino, the retired Toyota executive who collaborated with Katie on her excellent book, Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn: Lessons from Toyota Leader Isao Yoshino on a Lifetime of Continuous Learning.

Here is the page for the episode, where you can watch or listen (or read a transcript):

Isao Yoshino & Katie Anderson on Mistakes, Leadership, Learning, and Culture

I hope you'll check it out. It's fascinating to hear Mr. Yoshino's stories about being part of a culture where leaders take responsibility for mistakes that are made, instead of blaming workers. We'll also all discuss how we can create an environment where people are safe to talk about (and then learn from) mistakes that are made.
