Do you share management expert Ken Blanchard’s Luv for Southwest Airlines? (Interview)

Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of CEOs who have an entire shelf devoted to Ken Blanchard’s books but who obviously haven’t read any of them… in the new new media capitol of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!

This year, my friend Cliff is celebrating his 10th anniversary as a flight attendant with Southwest Airlines. By coincidence, we had dinner with our wives this past Saturday night and I got to pepper him with questions about his employer.

For the same reason that Southwest is always one of the two airlines I prefer to fly when I have a choice, Cliff raved about Southwest and how well it treats both passengers and employees.

And, coincidentally, the company had already provided him with a copy of the new book, Lead with LUV: A Different Way to Create Real Success by legendary management consultant Ken Blanchard and retired Southwest Airlines president Colleen Barrett.

Co-written by the author of The One Minute Manager and a woman who rose from Herb Kelleher’s executive legal secretary to his number two at Southwest, Lead with Luv captures the customer centric commitment at Southwest. It’s organized as a chatty interaction between the authors and is another must-read for Blanchard and Southwest fans.

This is Ken Blanchard’s second visit to Mr. Media and I hope there will be many more yet to come.

Hear it now!KEN BLANCHARD audio excerpt: “Southwest Airlines is over 80 percent union. Herb said, ‘I love unions — as long as the union allows (employees) to sit on the same side of the table as me…’ It is so key to treating your employees as business partners.”

There are now more than 500 million Facebook users in the world and I’m willing to bet that you’re one of them.

For individual users, Facebook – you know, that online website the movie The Social Network is about — is a place to look up everyone you’ve ever encounter from the time you were born until the moment you bought a pecan twistie at Panera Bread about 30 minutes ago.

And that is what makes Facebook a dream come true for marketers and brand manager who understand even a little about how social media works.

 ————–

————–

The Internet has always been the great equalizer between big business and small — your website’s home page is the same size as Wal-Mart’s, if you think about it — and Facebook is no different.

What sets the haves and have-nots apart is knowledge and technical skill.

To help us better understanding how to mine the commercial potential of Facebook, I’ve invited Dan Zarrella and Alison Zarrella – yup, they’re married — to talk with us about their new release, The Facebook Marketing Book.

Both come to us with solid online credentials. Dan is the social media scientist for HubSpot.com, a place you can go for all kinds of website analysis and assistance. Alison is an interactive copywriter and social media consultant.

Remembering Fenway Park, author Harvey Frommer finds a new love in his life (Interview)

Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of Tampa Bay Rays fans who wonder how many years of pasting the BoSox it will take for Harvey to write ‘Remembering Tropicana Field’… in the new new media capitol of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!

Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, Bosto...Fenway Park, image via WikipediaBy BOB ANDELMAN

As a Tampa Bay Rays fan, I wish we had a stadium as beautiful and legendary as Boston’s Fenway Park.

But I take solace in knowing that just 13 years into its life as home of the Red Sox, even Fenway had its faults, right?

 ————–

————–

Like Frommer’s previous book – Remembering Yankee StadiumRemembering Fenway Park: An Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Boston Red Sox captures all the pageantry, successes and humiliation that make a ballpark a home for legions and generations of fans.

 

In his now familiar style of patching together a quilt of memories from ballplayers, managers, executives, fans and sportswriters alike, Frommer unwinds all the drama and even some of the silliness – I’m looking at you Manny Rodriguez, relieving yourself behind the scoreboard during a lull in the action – that gives character to concrete and steel.

I’m not a Red Sox fan, but if I were, I’d want to find a copy of Remembering Fenway Park under my pillow in time for opening day.

Harvey Frommer WebsiteTwitter

Hear it now!HARVEY FROMMER audio excerpt: “The Red Sox people in charge knew of me as the guy wrote all this Yankees stuff. Red Sox Nation welcomed me. I never met a group of fans or players as nice as I met in Boston. My wife said, ‘Why don’t you convert?’ … Nobody believes me, but I love the Red Sox!”
