Craig on The Leadersmith Podcast with Dr. Darin Gerdes


What do you really know about Ulysses Grant? In this episode of The Leadersmith Podcast with Dr. Darin Gerdes you will learn why your understanding is probably wrong. If you are like most of us, you only associate him with the concept of the war of attrition. Compared to Lee, Grant is a knuckle-dragger in the popular imagination. But Grant was an amazing servant leader. Really. I was surprised by this amazing discussion with Dr. Craig von Buseck.


This is the first part of a two-part conversation. In this episode we talk about the lost-cause school, Grant’s early life and business failures, his method of leading his men during the Civil war, and his formula for success. In the next episode, we will talk about his achievements during his presidency, why it was far better than you think, and how he overcame the greatest challenge of his life just before his death.
