Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I am thrilled to bring you our fourth What’s Next! Bonus Episode with the wonderful Roger Martin! For this special episode, I'm sharing my recent LinkedIn Live chat with my friend Roger.
In 2017, Roger was named the world’s #1 management thinker by Thinkers50, a biannual ranking of the most influential global business thinkers. He is a trusted strategy advisor to the CEOs of companies worldwide including Procter & Gamble, Lego, and Ford. He is also a Professor Emeritus at the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto where he served as Dean from 1998-2013, Academic Director of the Michael Lee-Chin Family Institute for Corporate Citizenship from 2004-2019 and Institute Director of the Martin Prosperity Institute from 2013-2019. In 2013, he was named global Dean of the Year by the leading business school website, Poets & Quants. His newest book is When More is Not Better: Overcoming America’s Obsession with Economic Efficiency.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…Leaders looking to find a productive balance between purpose and profits.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Roger and I discuss his new book and the history of American economics. For the first 200 years of the American economy, we witnessed a truly impressive performance and the economic life of the average American family got better. But, in recent decades, growth in the economic prosperity of the average family in America has slowed to a crawl. At the same time, the prosperity of America’s richest families has grown to a level never seen before. This combination of the stagnation of the average family and the enrichment of the richest Americans threatens American democratic capitalism. Roger provides a unique viewpoint on what has changed and why the helpful pursuit of efficiency has turned into a damaging obsession. He also begins to lay out how to bring about more productive balance.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Getting the opportunity to talk to Roger about a phenomenon that has become more apparent than ever in recent months!
