"But he's so necessary. I can't fire him. He was like my okay best guy. I was like nope up firing him. Sorry I'll I'll make the mess disappear but I'm not getting rid of understandable audible. I can tell us about the pragmatic leadership formulas so people understand what they captain look forward to when they get your book team performance on buyer okay you see because of all the experience. I had on the field all the people I met so I interviewed and surveyed more than one hundred of manager's projects endeavors and business because I wanted to see if I was right and what I was doing maybe before that I should I should tell you a little anecdotes. You See the last two decades. I was being hired and mostly I'm I'm being hired for a project when it is failing or it has field and somehow did know how you can find me and who when I sit down and talk with the sponsor the one that's going to hire me at a certain moment. I I say you know you will if you hire me and you have to have a high some if you hire me but the thing is I will not be doing anything. I don't even need an office and then I pause look at the reaction. How the Hell you mean. You're not doing anything I say because I don't know your business. Your people know Your Business. So if you Ohio me my job will be to make sure that your people are doing the right things at the right time and and that's and that's it so I have to be with the people I have to be with my team with I- stakeholders because they are doing the job they know what's going on. I'm just leading them in the right direction that can do and make sure that they have everything they need that they can do. They have their own joe and then and then I I told him you know that's that's. That's one thing I'm known for. I will give you a deadline and I will keep that deadline and if I don't make it on that deadline or before you don't have to pay me wow and then do they say wow okay yes when I say you don't have to pay me if it it'll make the deadline the over bridge I bet they are it is so important to be the certain that you're going to work and it's just because I believe in the fact that I proven it everytime again. You can plan success and that brings me to the four pillars that I I address in in in the book and that's an easier way of explaining all formula. You know you'll have to ah like you have a kind of a for rocket. You know you not liked Apollo and under the rocket. You're under the plane as you speak. You have the street tons of fuel so that I will make sure that you become a performance rocketeer and even do that because you will command with your mindset and you will fuel with grit grip gear and and doors on four the four pillars. That's all you need. There's one condition only one condition initiative. You have to be open minded enough that you will use a people centered approach so you you will not be a kind of a spreadsheet manager but will you will be a people standard leader. Leader doesn't make any sense. Yes now for our leaders that are certainly at at this moment in time so used to be this spreadsheet kind of a manager and they're hearing people people centered leader and they're starting their knees or starting to shake and they're thinking of switching their coffee for a more stronger beverage. What do you say to them to get them out of their comfort zone and quite frankly out from behind their computer so that they it can embrace being the center later. How do you get them from behind the computer to in front of it. I like that question. I make that question here and is we're these four pillars the comment play it all starts with your mindset. You have to get your mindset in success mode. I explain that in in the book extensively and it starts with in in indeed realizing difference between manager and a leader and your your mindset organization you see everybody knows if you if you start any any endeavor or any project anything in in life. Really you know you've elite obstacles so if you know that you will meet ups go and you put your your mindset in the waiting mode. We are those obstacles. I know they're coming so I'm waiting for them. You already in a negative mindset but if if you put yourself in success success you put your your mindset in success mode Dan Dan you're. You're looking beyond obstacle doors. Obstacles are not problems anymore. They are are kind of challenges and that it has a more positive ring to it so your mindset is is is the most important of the four of my pillars once you have that in then when you come in you meet your people that have to work with your team and your other stakeholders they they they can see it in your body language. They can sit in your eyes in a free expression on your face that you know what you're doing and so you re out success and once you have that is much easier to get all all the trust you need and all the believe you need need and doing the job well because they know this is this is someone that's going to put us under road of doing the right things. Reno how to do things right but he is going to show us to do the right things at the right moment so that's the mindset I I'm keeping it's a bit short because once you have that no comes the people centered approach thing now we're going to talk about the grits and the grip is about nurturing your tribe and that means that those are the nervous people near you or your team that's going to do the job and keyword here is listen you see you are not going to give them orders. Look I'm the boss so you have to this and that and that are not you're out now. You have to listen. What are their once look. You know what they need. That's why they hire you but you want to listen to what and who they really want and not only on the job but also in private because those things they help each other so if you can ease their mind on the boat the ones that they have on maybe looking for a promotion. Maybe you're looking for a another kind of work and the home situation. Maybe have some difficulties with. Ah Kid at home difficult at school he alderson just give them a listening ear and that help so very much. Oh I can guarantee you based on past experience it. Does you know I had one of my guys. That reported to me at one point was a really really really good design engineer but he was very quiet kept to himself and when we would be on deadline he would leave leave and go home at a certain time and I said you know we're on deadline so what happens in he explained. I'm a single father. I have to go and get my child and organize them for dinner and get them settled and and I said fabulous. Can you work remote after they go to bed. If you WANNA put in another hour or should I just get a key made to the front door for and if you want to come back or if you went to come in early before anyone here you know what would work for you. We were all out. Let let me tell you what a top performer. He turned into exactly exactly he was so happy that someone just understood enough to make accommodation and it was so easy again. It's one factor it's just the human factor and after you have that under control as I always put it so you're taking care of your tribe is the nearest people that are are working for you. The next step is the is the grits that was the next step is grip that is or the third pillar and that's about reading the environment's so no you're going to broaden broaden your scope. Look up the other stakeholders. You have to ascertain who is friend and who is food because then you can use a tool that I also put in in the book and You can analyze how you event wants. You know who is full how you still can reach them through a friend because even here there is the same thing as you do your own tribe. You have to listen again and everybody is in. Its for a win so you have to make sure you have a win win win situation. What do I mean with these three wins first of all you're. You're hired again the big ridden for the organization so that's the important thing but to achieve that when you have to make sure that your people your stakeholders your team also get the feeling that they are winning something something one way or the other are in the in the business are in private last win if you have those first our students the last one is your own personal win. Judo's I two wins. You automatically have your win. So you also win. Everybody wins so true is such a good pillar. I love this. I love this and then of course you will even use a couple of of tools and I call the last ask builder to Fort Built. It is gear just have three gs grip grip in gear and those are specific tools that I'm mm-hmm using into book apart from all the other normally used to kind of tools that that you have in in in in us as a as a manager spreadsheets and things like that for the facts and figures but there are specific tools. All step helps you to do that. You could knock you to your tribe and also your read your environment and and you can qualify your stakeholders and and keep a power balance between alder stakeholders absolutely absolutely and that the gear is could fluctuate from project to project depending on you know who which what prejudice and who's in your tribe yes. The destroyed by the tour. I'm giving here are universal as a matter of fact my whole approach is is is is Greenfield. I it's it's it's not because it has been been done long before. It are these days as a matter of fact look around I in the world. How things how people are it's me are you. It's not me and you anymore. I know it's terrible. I do not like you do not enjoy it. Okay so in our last few minutes we have left John. Tell people how they can get a hold of this number one bestseller book and again. It's called team performance on fire and it's such a cool book so tell them how they can get it and how they can you know look up your consultancy so that they can you know do what they need to do. If they want to put their team performance on fire okay well. That's quite easy you got to Amazon and the easiest way do an Amazon is to go to kindle store and Amazon and just type in team performance on fire and the first book they'll be there and if you see my name tape is Johnny Williams and you know you have to write book and the and the whole subtitle I just wanted to mention that is four pillars to skyrocket team productivity and end in to boost your network self worth and George you see if you do off of that is I put in those in those pillars. You will boost your network. You were more in your community in your in your organization. You may even get a raise your self worth also getting a boost because you feel happy you feel like king and last but not least he's your joy works.

"Hi everybody this is Rhonda Cobb. The money coach and we have such a special guest today. I know that you are going to love this. Show all the way from the Netherlands. Today we have Mr John Williams. He's a leadership consultant and a bestselling author. He's a season project leader with decades of experience and more than a hundred successful major projects under his about any she is so brave he admits their read a couple of failures along the way too but he's gained such a great reputation of being a pragmatic leader an I'm putting the human factor at the core of his undertakings and so he's going to explain to us today how we can do this thing thing using using his signature pragmatic leadership formula and it is now the foundation of the International Number One bestseller book in team performance on fire so without further ado to we would like to welcome you to the show John Williams. How are you today. Hello Ronda. It's an honor to be on your show. I'm fine over here in Holland. Everything is going fine so I'm very happy to be on your show. L. Estimates so nice of you to join us. I know we've got a good time zone difference but it's evening there daytime year so it worked out okay. We got it all done done a wonderful time. I I am so glad you know when you had to offer and we could get the preview of the book look on Amazon Nimble. I actually downloaded nimble. I'd never had it before so that I could get the book like I'm such to cheapskate money coach. I actually got a book for ninety nine cents or something. I don't know is incredibly insanely reasonable but it's so cool. Oughta just like John on the show so he can tell people how to improve their leadership style and when you in my opinion as a business person in a money coach when you improve your leadership style and your team comes together more cohesively he simply you cannot help but positively impact the entire organization including your profitability. Now set me the strait. Was that straight John or did. I miss it by a bit. That's exactly what it's all about. You know we can make this a very short interview because is it the the the keyword here are the key phrase here is applied the human factor and that's all what what leadership approach is about I spent a few decades you know in in product management and in business management and and what I saw that you know these days we are talking about a a project manager and the thing is in this age of it that it is a blessing but also a curse because it gives us all kinds of data that we can use and managers now have become like a kind of a bookkeeper so they are our data factor and I'm saying you know all this data. Of course you need it. You need the facts and figures but that's above above the surface but under the surface who is making sure that you get these facts configures doors are the human beings or the people that are doing the work and as long as the people doing the work. I'm not talking about the far future and we'll have all kinds of of of robots and like that but as long as human beings are doing the work they are the primary asset that you have to take care of hence the human factor instead of a data factor so don't talk about a AH business manager but talk about the project or business leader because a manager will as able to go and get ging's managed leader will reveal manage. His people are people. I think that is so true and over the years I think I had had some of those same experiences you did as I went through different. You know might different you know jobs and promotions and you you know moving into management and leadership roles and finding that people don't respond to being managed managed respond to be led and it it hearkens back back to I had a boss in point in time he's actually was the owner of the company John and he was very o n any oh syncretic and he could not stand to see a desk with paper on it at the end of the day so after everyone had gone home he would come to the building and if there was paper under your desk he would have a bit and he would write on it with a sharpie and and ruined whatever worked youths left the lagged up for the next morning rate and so he did this and I had one guy I thought that was the exact diametric opposite he had these stacks of paper and that was how he worked but if you asked him for an invoice from nineteen ninety nine he would go down the stack of paper with this fingers lift lift up where I wanted it pull out the invoice you wanted and he nailed it in one thousand and so the owner said you have to get rid of him. He's a slab. This slob knows all the computer programs of every machine. We've got in the world and he knows exactly which machine is weird. What program goes with it. I it really him. He's the backbone of like half of my company and I'm the national sales manager. I'm responsible for all this stuff so he says snow absolutely you gotta get rid of him and I said so. I just need to make the mess disappear right. Yeah get rid so his office. Cubby was on the main thoroughfare. The boss couldn't go anywhere in the building without going by that so I they moved his copy and I put him in a corner where he didn't nobody went by. It knows over six months before the owner. The company realized fire that Guy Yeah. I can understand that.

"We we went the other way, which was really not commonplace. And the only reason we went the other way because Walsh told me to write these three names on the blackboard. Yep. A blackboard Gerald Robinson defensive end Auburn Rah, John L Williams, running back, Florida Ronnie Harmon running back Iowa and all three guys went right in a row and we needed to buy. Half hour. So he traded back with the Cowboys to buy a half hour. And then the rest is history. We trade a back, and we ended up with probably one of the greatest drafts and football history with Larry Robertson the second. We then we drafted Tom rathman. We drafted Tim mccarter. John taylor. We drafted Steve Wallace. Kevin Fagan a guy by the name of Charles Haley in the fourth. And then we picked Don Griffin and the six so we had a great draft. We used to have this TV actor Bradford Dilmun would come in. And he would come to every draft. He was a draft Nick before draft picks word he would be on these TV sitcoms, you know, murder. She wrote actually the typewriter that I own is the is a typewriter the same style of type are you've seen it in my office. When I was in L A, it's the same style that was on murder. She wrote because Braford Dilmun kinda was always telling me about it, and he wrote on one of these typewriter. So anyway, so he would come in the draft room, and he would sit in the corner, and we have twelve rounds. And he would talk about you know, he always loved the. Aft-? He would research it through sporting news and through Joe Bush bombs book and all that. And finally after this eighty six draft we had so many players that we picked we ran out of picks and so- coach Walsh. Like, the ninth round says to Bradford he says Bradford you get the next you get our last pick and so- Bradford was just like a static and he gets into his briefcase that he whips out a document that was typed on a on one of these typewriters. And and he has the pick of who wants to pick. And the guy's name is Harold Hallman defensive end from Auburn and his opening line was Harold home. And we'll get more penetration than than Warren Beatty at a sorority party. Never forget that live for the rest of our life. We drafted Harold Hallman. We'd never signed him. He went to Canada. He was an under sized defensive linemen and he made like all Canadian team for fifteen years in a row like ten years ago.

"Take a call from John in Williams, Iowa agreement John and welcome to the Bohannon show. Is exciting to be on the Jim Bohannon show. I've been listening to you for a while. I really like your attitudes and perspectives. So my question is this frightening scenario of electronic and space-based warfare and genius ground-based computer attacks against infrastructure, and all these advanced weapons in this incredible planning that other nations might inflict upon the US really kind of more likely that we're describing what the US could cause to occur upon other nations who attacked freedom. I mean, are we really much more menacing in these regards than than any other nation in technology. Hey, glad to be on JIMBO. Wow. Thanks. Thanks for your call. John. The of course, the scenario spelled out at the beginning of the book future war is more or less an opening gambit in a war. I'm not aware that we're. We're currently thinking about preemptive action against anybody in the in the way that it's spelled out in the opening of your book, general Latiff. No, absolutely. We're not thinking about preemptive action. We don't. In terms of our capabilities and our menacing other nations. You can can rest assured that we have all of the capabilities we need. In many cases, the capabilities that other countries are developing and have developed have come after we've done those same things, obviously, we don't talk about our capabilities as we as we shouldn't. But other countries are developing those same things and will probably not be having compunctions about using them against us. If they have to let me ask you this. If we chose to do what you spell out in that first chapter scenario are we capable of doing the things that you described. Getting into someone's nuclear command and control system. Would be exceedingly hard, and I can just tell you right now. I don't don't have the complete knowledge of all of our capabilities. So I wouldn't even begin to guess, but we're very good. We we are very good to been on Long Island New York on the Bohannon show. Good evening. Ben. Good evening, gentlemen. I'm reading a Bloomberg article where last year in September, President Trump blocked a Chinese back investor from from buying laddis semiconductor Corp, which produces microchips and citing national security risk. What what would be the ramification of something like that had happened? If you know wasn't blocked on the federal level. Did you have any idea? I guess it would depend largely on what? Specifically that company made. But I would certainly give you my brief outline van and then we'll get the more educated. Virgin from our guest. I would would not let anything like that take place. I just I I don't think that anything that would have had a Chinese abilities in in any regard in the cyber world is worth it. And if that meant that we suddenly had to let's say operate at some economic loss in that regard than the Soviet. There are more important things economics. Yes. And no, sometimes sometimes we actually can't prevent that. We've had situations where other countries have purchased. Our chip-making capabilities one recently several years ago in New York. Was bought by a Middle Eastern firm. And we've made we've been able to make. Deals if you want to call them that with those companies to keep keep capability in the United States. And as I said before when we have to buy something from overseas, we we really credible job of checking it first. But what you're referring to is is the easiest process. Syfy stands for him. But. It's a very good process whereby we look at all of these deals before we let them go through. And and that was a good one catch a few years ago as I recall it. Of the Clinton administration. We allowed to sail to China a technology that enabled the Chinese to to more accurately inserts satellites into orbit and apparently somewhere somewhat along. The lives of failed to note that the same technology that enabled you to insert a satellite into an accurate orbit. Also enables you to accurately aim an ICBM warhead. I mean, that's the kind of stupidity that just is beyond the pale. Yes. And we do a much better job of that.

"I'm John Batchelor. William Hitchcock's new book is the age of Eisenhower. And I must be careful not to go too deep into the professors careful research because we have a huge story to tell professor about I interrupted you in Eisenhower's opinion of a man, we now know as a future, president of the United States, and the centerpiece of an enormous enormous rupture with between the American people and its government in the nineteen seventies. I'm talking about Watergate, that's haunts us today. So this relationship is critical to understand Nixon saw is in how a father figure. How did Eisenhower seed Nixon? Well, I don't think Eisenhower ever fully, trusted, Richard Nixon. And it's curious that he put him on the ticket in nineteen fifty two to begin with. But the reason that he put him on the ticket in nineteen fifty two was because Nixon had a reputation as a young hungry anti-communist. Nixon was the guy who had unmasked the Soviet spy Alger hiss, and Nixon was a hard charging aggressive well-spoken Republican conservative and ethic communist, and he came from an important state of California. So the Republican leaders of the party put Nixon on the ticket. Eisenhower didn't really know Nixon at all. And he accepted him on the ticket very soon. After though it became clear that the distance between these two men too bad of enormously different backgrounds and experience at age, of course, was really significant and they never really they never really came to terms with one another next somewhat somewhat intimidated by by is an hour. And I've never felt the Nixon was never comfortable. In his own skin. He was never easy. He was ever comfortable. He he was he was an anxious man sort of very self conscious man as vice president. And I think I think to be honest. I think Nixon made is now feel a little uneasy and they never became close. They never they never shared social events together. And Eisenhower really didn't didn't give Nixon major duties in the administration. Joe McCarthy is dominating this period between the Truman administration and the Eisenhower administration making accusations about communism and communists in the government. Dwight David Eisenhower is opinion of communism. How did he see it as the devil as a rival economic system as invading Europe? What was his vision of communism because I'm I'm I'm convinced that he was against it. But I did not. I do not have one version of why opposed it so vehemently. I would say the reason that he saw communism as a threat to America was because he had come out of the second World War when the fear of Nazism as an ideology that could take over all of Europe was very very real. It wasn't hypothetical theoretical. It was real Nazism had already taken over all of Europe and America had to expend such energy to push it back and destroy it. Now, along comes another totalitarian ideology, the Soviet-backed, communism, and Americans are just as afraid that this ideology is gonna take over all of Europe and all of Asia, and in nineteen forty-nine, China goes communist, and it looks as if the communists are on the March and then. Fifty the Korean war began. So I didn't our looks at those events through the lens of the second World War. This is a time when terrible terrible. Ideologies are walking the earth and are really posing very serious threat. Not just to America, but to the other democracies, so he has a very hostile view of communism. And it doesn't make him a a a small minded man or a or a or a man who thought, you know, who who has a prone to conspiracy theories American leaders of the early nineteen fifties felt that the communist threat was real and it was global. So he was one of those who took it very very seriously the meeting in Bermuda nineteen fifty three when he meets Winston Churchill who again has been returned to government, although he's much older than Eisenhower. There's an exchange a scene that you record through the notes of another man who attended in which is in Hauer declares in a vulgar metaphor what communism is he calls. It a whore. That's what he calls it. And he has color. For language. This was a moment when Churchill was seeking to knit together the old allies of the war. Did Eisenhower regret rejecting Churchill's offices at this as at this time because it's right after Stalin's death. Yes, that's right after Stalin dies and Winston Churchill the old warrior is coming back into power. He's been out of power for awhile. And he's hoping he's hoping that there could be a great summit great summit between the new Soviet leaders. Eisenhower and Churchill all of them together. And that they can end the Cold War. They can reunite Europe. Reunited, Germany and the Cold War, shake hands and be done with it. And of course, Churchill wants all of the laurels accompanied with this idea now is now her comes along and he throws cold water on this. And he says it doesn't matter who is running the Soviet Union communism and the Soviet Union is a is the same old woman of the streets wearing a different dress. That's how he puts it to Churchill. So he's the one who's much more hawkish much more rigid than Churchill was at that meeting in nineteen fifty three. And he says, you know, communism is communism. It just because they've changed the leaders at the top doesn't mean that they've changed their ideology. So I don't know that he regretted that he missed that opportunity, although some scholars have gone back and said if Eisenhower had been more supple more open to compromise. It's possible. There would have been a chance to grasp the hand of friendship from the new Soviet leadership the post Stalin leadership and soften the Cold War in some way. But you know, from Eisenhower's perspective, he's still in his first year in office and the domestic politics of of making friends with the Soviets would have been very very difficult. Let's go to the reason for that. It's Joe McCarthy Joe McCarthy making these accusations against everyone in government. And now that Eisenhower's in there. He's not falling back. You present. The fact that Eisenhower so far from having the hidden hand is in improviser when it comes to McCarthy and at first he ignores him, it doesn't work. So he sends Richard Nixon. I believe it's March of fifty four now sends Richard Nixon out to answer. Adly? Stevenson, who's charged that Eisenhower as weak and Eisenhower likes the way, Nixon handle sister. I read that correctly. Professor. Well, if there was one thing that Nixon was good at it. It was it was a kind of you might say dirty tricks and Nixon is now wants Nixon to go first. He wants them to approach McCarthy privately and say, look Joe, you know, come on. We're all in the same boat. We're on the same team, quit quit attacking us and of Carthy refuses. He says I'm gonna keep attacking because because basically it's good for McCarthy. So then is not as all right deck. You've got to do a public take it on publicly, and he goes on national TV to rebut MacArthur. Senator Senator McCarthy's charges, and he's absolutely brilliant doing it. And he says, well, we all know that when you when you go out shooting for for rats when you got shooting for routes, you have to shoot straight because otherwise, you might shoot your friends. And what are you saying is McCarthy is is is is is is wild and shooting spraying bullets in every direction. So Nixon is saying we're all anti communists. We all hate communism. We just don't want to be too derelict in the way, we handle these matters. So it would be better for the president to run the the the anti-communist program and leaves Senator McCarthy out of it. Now, the two parts of Eisenhower that don't ever go together. But they're separate tracks. One is the man who seeking peace atoms for peace peace in our time. The other one is a practices. What you call professor correctly. The dark arts he turns on the CIA to practice covert warfare everywhere in the world with the understanding that if they don't the communists will take over the. Country. I read here again. And again reluctance afterwards for Eisenhower having created a monster that he couldn't control at regionally. It was called the office of policy coordination. We know what is the CIA? He gives it to Allen Dulles, and they practice their their dark arts in Iran, and Guatemala and those burn sixty years later, those incidents burn did Eisenhower ever in his memoirs anywhere regret empowering, the CIA outside of the reach of congress and of the newspapers. Well, you know, he never really did a say that he regretted it on. And I don't think he lived quite long enough to see the long long term damage that some of these covert operations really caused if you look at Guatemala or Iran in two countries, where our covert operations overthrew the government there were civil wars in Guatemala that went on for decades afterwards in Iran. Of course, we know that the Shah was put into power he was a strong man and governed very ruthlessly and then in nineteen seventy nine the Iranian revolution came along. And they said we hate America in part because you put the Shah in power back in the Eisenhower years, so there's a long memory of American covert operations in places like Ouaga Malla, and and Iran, so I don't think Eisenhower ever quite saw that this was such a pernicious pattern. He again, viewed it as through the lens of the second World War, which was if you have an enemy you'll do anything to undermine. That enemy whether it's it's bombing them with your airplanes or it's secret operations to blow up a bridge or two wired cut down there there. Telegraph lines. You'll you'll do anything that you have any weapon. You have available is fair game. And I think that's how he viewed it. And in a way that was rather naive way of looking at things because the CIA grew into such a world straddling, you know, institution with its finger in in pies around the world, and I don't know that Eisenhower anticipated just how big and in some cases, how negative impact of that kind of behavior would be right. He approved the technology that becomes the U2. airplane again. And again this reads like a big novel professor because foreshadowing of of turning on the U2. and nine hundred fifty four and having it come back in one thousand nine hundred sixty however, we have other stories. Eisenhower liked the domino metaphor. And look at these dominoes that he deals with Vietnam after DNB on FU. And then there's. The matter of Formosa, which we call Taiwan today and China, he sees the domino theory. That was inherited by the sixties and the seventies. Was it real for him? Or was it just a speechifying because there's never been evidence that when one of these countries fell under the control of so-called communist agents that it wasn't anything other than opportunists nationalists such as in Vietnam did is our see that irony. Well, this is an area where his he was very sophisticated. I think publicly publicly what he said was it's a domino effect. And if one of these first Domino's goes, then the whole road is gonna fall down. So we have to make sure the first domino doesn't fall, but privately with his advisors..

"John Batchelor. William Hitchcock's new book is the age of Eisenhower America and the world in the nineteen fifties. This is a conversation about Eisenhower as a leader, and as a politician and as a man who rides through the the turmoil roller coaster ride of the nineteen fifties. After the great success. The crusade is our calls it in his bestselling book the crusade in Europe comes the period that we understand as the Cold War. Will this is the beginning of it? And I go now to a moment when it was recognized that Eisenhower this modest man who was enthusiastic for hard work. But it never been a a combat general in similar to say patent for the glory of his successes crossing Europe. How when he was an understood himself as a as a magnet for other strongmen who saw him as a way to change the argument going forward. Professor, this is what you call star power and it strike. Checking that Eisenhower attracted very confident self made men, most of whom were enorm- all of whom were enormously wealthy did that make him comfortable to be with men who were far more wealthy than he was. Well, Eisenhower was a winner. There's there's no other way to put it everything that he did in his life. He worked hard at any succeeded at so by the time, he became the great conqueror of Europe. The man who had was so identified in the public by having won the war. He came back to the United States to a to a an America that that was ready to just fall in love with Eisenhower, and he attracted a great many people around him who wanted a piece of him, and that's inevitable. But he had he had developed a pretty good sense of who were the kinds of people. He could trust and one of the things that's interesting about Ike in the immediate postwar years as he starts to build a circle of influential Republican friends who he believes are going to help him sort of guide his career. He's not quite sure what he's going to do next. But he knows he needs advice. He doesn't really know. How America works? He's been overseas a lot he's been fighting the second World War, and he wants good advice. He wants good feedback from sense. Sensible men of of affairs. Well, who does he reach out to the kinds of people, but he's attracted to our people in a way like him, not military men, but men who started out in life kind of at the bottom end of the totem pole and worked themselves up who he likes self made men. He likes businessman. He likes men who are wealthy, but not because they inherited a great deal of wealth. But because they've figured out how the American system works and they've succeeded in it. So some of his earliest friends are men like Bill Robinson, a man who was the publisher of the of the New York Herald Tribune for a while Robert Woodruff who was the great founder, and and I'm sort of creator of Coca Cola Coca Cola company Alton Jones, who who had found, you know, had built a an enormous energy based empire people who basically had you know, figured out that hard work, and and and talent could could make you rich in America. They were not politicians, and they were not people who sought the public limelight. But they did believe that Eisenhower himself could become a great public figure public servant and rally the country around him, and they were all men who were very critical of the new deal and quite critical of what the what they felt were the legacies of the Democratic Party. So so throughout the late nineteen forties. I get gets pulled into this circle of wealthy public-minded, but somewhat private Republican rich folks who they feel I could be the guy to finally break the hold of the Democratic Party on American public life. He's offered and accepts the presidency of Columbia University. Which is not a good fit for a hero. A who thinks of himself as a man who wants to secure America and advance the the democracy that he saw in Europe. However, he has this political possibility, and it is not in nineteen fifty because he's called out of Columbia University. By Truman and sent to Europe to create and build what we call today. Nato? This is during the Korean war when Stalin was threatening early Europe, we're going fast in the presidency now, so there's a lot of richness in the professors book, but I take a mmediately to the campaign of nineteen Fifty-two is now he's in Europe. He is an officer in the United States army called out, and he's leading a very serious effort to reorganize European defenses. When Germany's still in ruins and France is chafing at the idea of being under the command of the Americans. However is in how're has friends back home one in running for president? This is the question professor at what moment did he see himself as a president of the United States? Is it is it in Europe is it when he comes home is it when he wins New Hampshire is there a moment. It's one of the great mysteries. That Eisenhower is Wendy. He decided he wanted to run and indeed become president patent. What of his oldest friends said that Eisenhower wanted to be so bad. I wanted to be president so bad. He could taste it. And he said that years before Eisenhower ever ran for office. So it gives you an idea that maybe somewhere in the back of his mind he was ambitious for the nation's top office. But it's really after the beginning of the Korean war which breaks out in June of nineteen fifty and he feels that Harry Truman is not really the man for the job. Now, we all love, Harry, and Harry has a good reputation in history. But Harry Truman wasn't embattled president and the Korean war really hurt his reputation. I didn't go very well he tangled as you remember with general MacArthur. It was an unpopular war. There were economic strains at home, and he faced a lot of strikes on the home front, and I felt that Truman was swamped. He was out of his depth in the presidency in the year. Nineteen fifty one and nineteen fifty two. And I think it was around nineteen fifty one when he was in Europe, he was leading the NATO the newly formed NATO alliance, and he worried about the direction of the country felt things were going badly at home and in the Korean war. And so many people beat a pathway to his door and said general Eisenhower, you must run for president only you can save the country, you know, and after a while when lots and lots of distinguished people come to your office and say that over and over again, you begin to think maybe I can save the country. So I would say it was in while he was in France in in Paris, running the NATO alliance that he finally realized you know, I think this is something that I I really have to do the campaign is striking in that it compared to today it goes very quickly towards Eisenhower. He has rivals Senator Taft from Ohio the man who understood as the conservative powerhouse at the time is a challenger early on. But I. Stays back. From the fray of backroom politics is Chicago, the Blackstone hotel doesn't get any more famous than this than the smoke filled room itself. However, he makes an an important decision to choose Richard Nixon as vice president and professor reading through your very careful recitation of this is now how quickly had reason to regret his choice of Nixon was it just the investigation of the slush fund that made him regretted. Or was he uncomfortable with Nixon from the first? The Eisenhower Nixon relationship is a fascinating one. And it's a somewhat bittersweet one. Because whatever you may think about Nixon or Eisenhower, they they there was always a lot of a lot of difficulty attention in the relationship between the president and the vice president, and that's never something that you would wish on an administration. Nixon is now didn't know Nixon before he was put on the ticket is an hour. Of course, didn't have much experience in American politics. Professor. I'm going to interrupt us right now having set and Richard Nixon up just a moment. We'll we'll return to this important relationship because we're talking about two presidents here is in our Nixon the book is the age of Eisenhower, William Hitchcock is the author. I'm John bachelor. Kim commando.
