Marketing Smarts Podcast: How to Become a More Mindful Marketer

I recently sat down with Kerry O’Shea Gorgone of MarketingProfs to discuss The Mindful Marketer. During this conversation, Lisa Nirell Marketing Smarts Podcast Promowe addressed:

  • The main causes of costly and mindless marketing activity
  • How I define mindful marketing
  • The origin of intentional language, and its implications for marketers
  • Distinctions between cognitive empathy and affective empathy–and why marketers should care about both
  • Simple shifts that marketers can make to become more mindful, effective and focused

This was one of the first interviews I experienced where we had no agenda, no outline, and no topics identified in advance–and it was one of my favorites! Kerry had clearly done her homework and read the book cover to cover. She’s a class act. This level of preparation is rare for many podcast hosts.
