Leadership Lessons from a US Army General Maj Gen John Gronski (retd) - burst 11

"A gunnery. Sergeant michael burkhart was the who was the explosive ordinance disposal team leader went down to that site with two young marines and they were going to conduct a post blast analysis to determine a tactics techniques procedures insurgents. Were using so we could try to prevent these attacks from happening again in the future and when gunny burkhardt got down there with two young rains was chaotic. The soldiers were cisterna. Seen the ad that a chaos there were two reporters from the omaha world herald newspaper there there were embedded reporter so anyway going burkhard gets down. There sees the destroyed up. Armored humvee sees a crater near that up armored humvee bow four feet in diameter a couple of feet deep makes an assumption that that's for that roadside bomb that destroyed that humvee was placed jumps down into crater. Take a closer look as soon as he did that. He realized he made a mistake because he could see in the dirt in front of him to artillery shells. Red detonation cord running in the nose was a roadside bomb. That an insurgent have placed their so. He took his k bar knife. Cut the red debt. Detonation cord to neutralize that roadside bomb. He didn't see a third artillery shell into dirt behind him in that crater. An insurgent was off in the distance. Hit a button. On a that nation device that artillery shell exploded not going burkhardt about fifteen feet into the air lands on the dirt road unconscious pants soaked with blood. Our soldiers call a medevac helicopter. Ride away go up tomb start. Cut his pants off. Start tending to his boons after few minutes burkhart regains consciousness. The soldiers couldn't believe that and and he's laying there and he asked the soldiers if he has both of his legs because they had no no sensation from the waist down. They sure to me had both of his legs. They continue to work on 'em couple minutes later. He gets a tingling sensation in his legs. He tells the soldiers he wants to stand up. Soldiers couldn't believe that this guy had just gotten blown up and so we struggles to his feet. He standing there to soldiers around him. The medevac helicopter comes in lands on the ground behind them. The soldiers point to the stretcher On the ground in front of the misogony. We've got you know. Gotta put you on a stretcher and carry you to that helicopter. He looks at the soldiers and he says i'm not going to have you carry me that helicopter on a stretcher. I'm going to walk there under my own power. Because i don't want the insurgents of the pleasure of seeing me being carried that helicopter and easy. He says that he raises his hand into the air and gives the insurgents which i will call a one finger salute reporter reported from the omaha world heritage takes a picture of him standing there Groin protector. you know. In in front of his private area there. No pants on finger thrown up into the air soldiers around him. You'd say the helicopter the background. That picture became an iconic picture of the iraq war but what is deleted Point of the story. And the reason i tell this story and the reason. I think it's important. The leadership point of this story is member told you. He had two young marines with them that day. He knew he was going to have to recover from his wounds. He knew what all the roadside bomb attacks were getting that those two young marines were going to have to be out there probably later on that day routes realizing roadside bombs. The reason he wanted to walk to that helicopter instead of being carried there had nothing at all to do with what he thought and surgeons for thinking. He wanted to walk to that helicopter so we would not shatter the confidence of those too young marines. Pseudo leadership point is even after getting blown up ten minutes earlier. His main concern was not with his own wounds. His bank concern was with those two young marines. Who he was leading an isn't that what leadership is all about. And we talked about that looking out for the welfare of those you lead rather than your own welfare and that's exactly what gandhi burkhardt exemplified that day. And that's why. I like to tell that story that i read read that story. I had to read it again. Because i was laughing because i could just see i. I have friends who are marines right by the way. There's no such thing as an ex marine okay. the just doesn't exist. I've been told that countless times by my friend there's just no such thing they they may be quote unquote have retired at the end of their name. But they're still all. And and and i just thinking about them go. That's exactly what jimmy would. That's exactly what he would have done. That's what bob would have done. He would have done the same thing. I i can. Just see it. I just great story but it was truly the surprise in that lesson was not. I thought it was going to be resiliency. It is but the point is that he cared so much about making sure that those other two young marines were their that their mental emotional state was not shaken. Yeah and you know jay that think about this as leaders we face adversity almost every day in whatever organization were leading the some degree and and sometimes things get tough honest and the point is as a leader. You can't be thinking. I'm an figuratively. I'll use this. You know you can't be thinking. I'm cold i i'm hungry. You know i. I'm shivering right. No you you've got to show those you're leading that you know what i've got the resiliency to overcome this. And because i do you have the resiliency to overcome. They might be called. I might be hungry. I might be weak. But i'm going to take care of you before i take care of myself. And that's the essence of leadership. We underestimate the modeling of behavior. Don't we when it comes to leadership absolutely. Yeah and you know what the other thing i learned in my forty years of leading soldiers also leading teams in the business sector. Is the people you lead are always watching you practice. You know you could. You could put down in writing. What your leadership philosophy is or you could verbally give some guidance about behaviors. You're looking for but those you lead are going to be watching to see you. Know how do you adhere your own guidance. Behaviors that you're looking for you. Exemplify those behaviors and your followers are always watching and your actions speak so much larger than larger louder than your words. Do

2015 WSOP Champion Andrew Barber on When the Game Clicked for Him

"The realization. You you eventually come to. Which i think put realization every poker player has is like cash is going to be better for my sanity than tournaments If i care about the swings adult and so. I started playing cash. But i had gotten into Omaha hi lo through my experience with with going to reno for mixed games and stuff and i just like fired up like a small stakes six handed omaha hi low table in just clicked. It just clicked the way that i've heard other poker players talk about specific formats where they just they. Just get it and i just seem to get it and i i went from. It was fifty cents a dollar to seventy five one fifty on stars within nine months something like that solely solely playing oma hiwa solely playing omaha. Hi lo still dabbling in like Sitting go stuff and some empty teas. But like i became obsessed with the game. I like i had a poker journal. I was always thinking about the game. I was talking to other people about it. I mean like some of my best poker friends or people that i that i kind of met around this time. We're talked omaha. hi lo with. Why do you think it clicked so much. And i'll follow up question down. The line is also why did mixed games resonate with you so much well. I don't know if everyone's experienced this. But i kinda got bored with simplicity of holdem. I mean i respect that like it is A game that can be Extremely deep And that you can run. Sim after sim episode in different spots. but i think ultimately i didn't like the lack of complexity in strategies And with mixed games you have like you know constant variation like i love playing a multi game mix. Where like the game is changing every orbit. So it's like okay. Let's shift is something new. I think maybe i get bored. Or i liked shifting gears and thinking of the different way but omaha. Hi lo is. I love split park games first of all so like if i were to rank my favorite game split games are going to be at the top of the list. I love the idea that we're like playing two games simultaneously like that's really cool to me. you know it's So there's that i think there's this Maybe a concept that came naturally to me that maybe other struggle with is kind of seeing where my hand is on a spectrum like the weaker your low hand is the sorry. I'm making the Are you relatively familiar with them. A high low. I know the rules of how became operates. Okay so there's there's these trade offs that like the worst year low hand is the better. Your hand has to be and vice versa and just seem to understand where my hand fell on that that distribution You it's not often that you have like the nuts and the high side in the nuts and the low side and especially playing shorthanded or heads up You're gonna have a trash on both ends chair. It's kind of like trying to understand. How does my trash measure up to my opponents trash in what's that might like my optimal strategy here So yeah i really. I took to that in that. I think the game was also like Poised for a Poised for evolution like it was a very people are still playing a very primitive elementary strategy. There was like a little more not pedley back back then. And i was able to take advantage of that that i think i just saw There's maybe an holdem analog. That could be made

"So you're you're working a staff job and you're thinking okay. Is this just me slowly dying. And i'm getting paid and there's a comfort and security in knowing that there's a regular paycheck distress over finding work all the time but then there's no real fast way to get ahead right. Yeah i mean there's there's always move out to up that's kind of what we do In our industry but then you just end up at another job. Kind of just biding your time. Until you think you're ready for a promotion or a pay raise or something and then you just move somewhere else at. It's it's just like a slow predictable path and it's not very appealing when i think ahead like ten twenty years. Yeah and how long have you had this job. I've been at this job a belt three and a half years which is about the the average stint that. I'll i'll be at any one place i see. So you're coming up on that and you're getting the aging yen.

Perception of the mid west is just farms and cows and All that kind of stuff. And i've been shocked. At how much designed there is here. Okay so there's plant it's a healthy job market for a person with creative services or craig's skills right. Oh absolutely okay all right. Do you feel that. You have to stay for certain reason that i need to stay in my position I don't feel any compulsion to stay. I can't say in all honesty that this has been the best job company culture that experienced in. Gosh like but twenty years. I've been now all the stuff i mean. It's it's it's rare you know so it's the idea of of leaving it for really anything else especially another company. That's kind of not appealing.

The Extrovert's Dilemma

"So back in january when we were still in the height of the pandemic. i had an interview with a man who goes by the name run chuck's and he's a high stakes. pot limit. Omaha player and coach very successful has a great podcast and one of the things that he questioned me about. When i went on the show was this idea of hey right now. We're in the pandemic everybody's locked down. There's not a lot of activities for us to be doing a lot of options available to us in our social lives. Don't you think that this is a really great time for everyone. Just hunker down and work really hard on your game so that you get a lot out of this period of time and on the surface the answer is simply yes. It's a great time to work on your poker game and really work hard in studying put in all the hours that you normally might not when the world is opened up and there's definitely another part of the equation that people weren't really thinking about fully and i wanted to address it so what i said was that what you need to do is consider the fact that probably half the people in the world are extroverted by nature and they gain more fuel the gain more energy. They're able to charge their batteries up to get excited and do things and get productive by being around other people. I personally am an introvert. I'm the opposite. And i get more energy and recharged from being by myself and so as an introvert. I can't possibly understand on any level. How people could gain more energy from being with others because for me. It's the exact opposite experience most of the time but for other people who are of that nature. That is true. I've talked to them. They all agree that this is how they start to feel. Better is by being around others when they can't when that's taken away. They feel pretty miserable and they go through long such a time where they have no energy very little motivation very little ability to get extra things done beyond the basics of what's needed to just make it through to tomorrow so for those people being locked into their houses and not being able to see other people do things with the people that they love was devastating and so a expect people of that

The Mississippi River Basin Model

"If you took a walk a really long walk from baton rouge to omaha. It's safe to say would definitely take more than sixty minutes in the real world. You'd have to be an enormous giant to do that but at the mississippi river basin model. Everyone's giant that's because the model squeezes sixteen states the parts of those states that are all connected to the mississippi river into a couple hundred acres of space to reference. That's about the size of one hundred fifty football fields there. Ever based model is a physical model Physical hydraulic model of the mississippi river basin. This is sarah mcewen and the reason she knows so much about this model is because she's trying to save it. It doesn't go to the headwaters but it is kind of stops at key points along the tributaries that The mississippi river main line would have had backwater impacts. So you have like tulsa omaha nashville. These are all kind of key points that are the upstream reaches and then you have those rivers that flow down until they converge join the mississippi. And then you have the mississippi all the way down to baton rouge about half a century ago. The city of jackson mississippi took it over from the us army corps of engineers but by nineteen ninety-three. It was completely shut down with no vision for its future. It was in the middle of a park. Say you have soccer field. Do you have go kart track. You have mountain biking trails but to my knowledge besides kind of mowing it initially to keep the trees and education contained. That was really all that was diet.

"So i appreciate you sharing your love during a very difficult time last question post pandemic you and your family have probably more experience In the dining at home eating out delivery been than anyone else in our country What are your expectations in that realm of dining at home eating out in delivery so one of the things that we saw during the pandemic and i think you mentioned in your lead into the question is that many families either discovered or rediscovered the joy of cooking at home with their family. And i know that. That was true for me. Because i was able to get my kids involved in grilling as an example which they hadn't really taken much of an interest before but there wasn't that much else to do and so you know they were. They were willing to engage with their dad. You know how to cook a steak and that was really fun and so I believe that what we're gonna see a going forward. And we've already got some indications of this from some research we've done is that is that consumers are going to continue to cook at home They're gonna start expanding the footprint and having larger gatherings while some consumers are anxious to get out myself included They're gonna be. They're going to be getting out But they're also going to be entertaining at home maybe for larger groups because even now when you get out you know you can't it's hard to show up at a restaurant with eight or ten people. You don't have a really great experience but that's really easy to do at home. It's very controlled is really fun and and people learn during the pandemic that there's a lot that's super convenient about being home. You don't have to get ready. You've already got the omaha steaks in your freezer. You've got a grill. Your friends can walk over. I mean all of that stuff sort of combined makes it makes for a very rewarding experience. The kids can play together and run around and not have to worry about the the confines of of a restaurant..

We have this pandemic and i can't think of a better business that was situated for the pandemic The company that you know since the fifties have been delivering food to your door with high quality How did you navigate the pandemic and what types of things did you know. That occurred that i may not be thinking of that. Actually weren't voting in your favor right so we were humbled and honored to be able to serve so many of our customers during the pandemic. Obviously when when when two things happen you know food. Supplies became scarce and people were in many times required to stay home. That was obviously a perfect place for us to be. We also Just it was really kind of a coincidence. We happen to have a fair amount of inventory on hand at that moment because we basically manufacturer as we buy as we get opportunities to buy a great raw materials so we had. We had good inventory as we went into the end of march of last year So all of that combined to be very helpful and and put us in a position to be there for american families who you needed us at that moment and one of the best ways we responded was to make was to take the guesswork out of it and to give our customers what they wanted which was a quick stock of their freezer so that they just had one less thing to worry about and i think taking that sort of mental overhead away from our customers is one of the things. I'm most proud of a during the pandemic because you know people had so many things to think about whether it's where my kids going to school however my parents and maybe somebody's sick you know and just.

"Our deliveries and one of the things that was always super important to us and my dad realized early on when we first started the business or the mail order. Business was that in order to get people over the hump to actually buy it We needed offer a one hundred percent satisfaction guarantee and that became kind of the touchstone because not only was it amazing of a claim to make to our customers. Hey look you're going to be thrilled. If you're not thrilled we're going to give you your money back to simple as that but it was also rallying cry internally really motivated our team both in producing the stakes and also shipping them on that we knew that our customers always had the ability to put that product back to us and we always had to make sure that the product exceeded their expectations. So that wouldn't happen and so it really was a great motivator internally for us to say we stand behind this but the name of the family behind it and that was a way to get consumers over the hump and of course since that time food deliveries become ubiquitous. Absolutely not not ubiquitous in the mid fifties and really not even ubiquitous in the mid nineties. So you know when the internet started come along you know. We were faced with another challenge of how to make sure that we're talking to that online customer and And convincing them that taking a chance with hostage was a good idea. I use a i do a lot of speeches to nba schools and entrepreneurial schools ports bandaged schools. But i use omaha steaks.

Munger magic neither one of them ever really wanted to work for bosses or have a boss or work in corporate culture. They both said that they wouldn't survive it. They'd get fired. And i think that's why berkshire is the way that it is. They like to let people have their autonomy. They like to let the. They've got more than sixty businesses that they own outright and they let the managers run those businesses for a company that is now one of the ten biggest companies in the world by market capitalization. It's an incredibly decentralized organization. I mean there's twenty five people at the headquarters in omaha which by the way they don't even have a building that they run their corporate headquarters out of they. They lease a couple of floors from somebody else. And that's where the whole thing's run run from. If i were to tell you the details of this you'd think it was a scam. You know that.

Day as the majority of the german troops in france had been moved north to hold off the allies in normandy on one beach. Allied troops were greeted not by gunfire but by an old frenchman who is giving out bottles of fresh wine to the soldiers after operation. Dragoon davita thought he was going home but the military had other plans after all are of the to invasions in france. We we were going on then. The and also watt speakers. Get your gear in order. We're going to the pacific. And i didn't make the actual invasion of the philippine islands. Bring replacement juice into the philippine. So we got credit for them in october of nineteen forty four general douglas macarthur and the american sixth army landed on later in the philippines as part of the pacific island hopping campaign as american forces. Inched closer and closer to japan. The fighting grew and brutality both on land and at sea where the japanese deployed new weapon the kamikaze and then from there. We live to okinawa.

Thousands of men from the first twenty ninth infantry divisions were pinned to the ground behind a small sand embankment called the shingle if the german guns atop the ridge could not be silenced. None of the men taking cover behind the shingle would make it off omaha. Beach alive davita and the men on board. The ships offshore looked on at the carnage unable to help until one brave skipper of destroyer hatched a plan it was five destroys but the was the frankford and then one of the others shows the sadly within the mcgurk so the three of them came in at the same time. When you take an enemy attack is knows. Because as the smallest silhouette he did that and he came so close to shore. You all both can go on a beach. Destroy has a keel. They can't get too close. He was saying so then he is something i've never seen done before. This guy was willing to sacrifice his life and his boat and all his men because they want to help these guys on the beach so we took his boat that was facing this way and he turned his sideways exposing his beam to the. It's the reason he did that. Destroy us for five inch guns. He wanted to find these five inch guns at one time. The guys up on the hill they were facing us machine eighty s because they were the grass formulas and stuff like that so we put around of his gun for the time. Took out those guys on the on the slope and right in there about started changing one by one. The german guns began to fall silent however the battle for omaha beach was not yet one. Small groups of american troops began scaling. The bluffs all the while dodging a torrent of german machine gun and rifle fire after hours of brutal combat. The german beach defenses gradually fell to the american forces as the battle on shore began to move away from the beach. Davita and the coast guardsmen. Had even more difficult work to do the way we ran out of troops so we started thinking twenty ninth division because the twenty ninth division was a new and you thought that time was clean so they swung over to help the first division.

Because i i had a hard time dealing with it and the one thing that happens when that particular thing happens to you and your family when people pass and so many of them a short period of time. You're pretty much you know in shock. It's like you got hit with a baseball bat. You can't get up. And i needed a way to sort of trace my footsteps back to lie my youth and to remember these people and the second thing that happens is because of death other things get really mixed up complicated States of people in wills and things like that and i got caught in the middle of that a lot and it was really disenchanting. I felt as if my childhood had been stolen from me. In a way

"He's a vast landscape on the Normandy covers many features from the American sector all the way to the British and Canadian sector one beach however was at risk all the morning of June six Omaha beach and there's a new book the dead and those about to die which is the story of Omaha D. day an Omaha beach but a particular part of Omaha beach this is the first division the famous big red one that fought in a number of wars before this one there is a memorial right behind the White House in Washington DC to the big red ones fight in the first World War well this is the big red one on Omaha beach as the crack troops that Eisenhower and Bradley had to push into the center of the Normandy invasion these men and their story I learned from John McManus the author of this book is very little told it's striking but so much of the attention has been on the twenty ninth division which was the newly formed division which and the other part of Omaha beach this is thirty five hundred yards was the big red one section of Omaha and then to the west of them was the twenty ninth division this is the big red one they took a thousand casualties that day as did the twenty ninth and how they fought through what were terrible conditions and at the same time bad luck is the story that John tells Mr McManus professor of very good evening to you thank you for this let's begin with the landscape itself thirty five hundred yards and to look at it and to visit it you're looking at a are a romantic and rocky and windswept coast north of France what is the big red ones challenge how did Hefner the commander of the division see his chief efforts that morning could be good evening to you good evening to you as well thanks for having me I would say the you know you take one look at that the rain and you know that's the main challenge initially and you don't even have to be a military expert to realize that if you've got a crescent shaped beach which Omaha beaches and it's been closed on either side by cliffs and the beach is narrow and it gives way to high ground that you can have a heck of a time taking that so the the real advantages with the defenders and the Germans course took took great advantage of that with heavy fortifications so right there the planners for the Norman invasion understood Omaha would probably be the toughest nut to crack and so that's the primary reason why they assign the better part of two divisions to real good high quality divisions the first on the twenty ninth to a plus Rangers to assault that beach and they are that the assault force with with plenty of engineers to about one of every four soldiers who went in that morning was an engineer the larger picture it is June nineteen forty four France is still under **** control the Russians are advancing from the east however the war is stalled because of the long delayed opening of the second front Normandy begins a battle that springs all the way from early June till the end of August when Paris falls your opinion now John as you teach this here on the twenty first century was the war it riskier work was Eisenhower Bradley and at the direction of the president United States where they taking a gamble crossing the channel and throwing this amount of manpower against the Germans I would call it a risk more than a gamble certainly there's risk involved in an amphibious invasion and and many military folks will tell you that's one of the toughest operations to pull off you know because defender has a terrestrial advantage you're coming from the water perhaps coming from the air and in this case the Germans that had several years to fortify you know major portions of the the French coast the invasion of the sort presented so many challenges logistically and administratively diplomatically because it's a massive multinational effort if we get down to the soldiers level it presents you with all sorts of tactical issues and how you deal with those fortifications how you get in from landing craft in the water what kind of weapons are gonna have how many people you can put ashore because remember everything is dependent upon the shipping so I do think it's it's something of a calculated risk but it really has to be done if you want to come to grips with Adolf Hitler and you want to really present him with the full consequences of a of a two front war now make no mistake of course the the the bombing campaign you know Germany was absorbing major resources for the Germans and also you had the Italian theater too but neither of these was going to bring Hitler to his knees alternately your going to have to invade France get ashore and then develop you know massive military power from there a major theme of your book is leadership the quality of leadership makes the difference when your match gone forgotten the question of leadership in the big red one comes right up comes right away because Alan the very popular commander of the big red one insistently was relieved for indiscipline I think that's the generous way of putting it and he was replaced by a fifty five year old old army man a man who fought in the first World War he even what we need to know about him Allen was a beloved figure in the first division he was a cavalryman he was a soldier soldier he had leads the very proud regular army units through the North Africa campaign through most of the Sicily campaign he was the kind of guy you would probably have seen and known as a private soldier and he was a very very courageous and competent commander but he in the view of Allen's appears generals Bradley and Eisenhower he had allowed kind of attitude in disciplinary sort of attitude to set in in the first division in which they didn't necessarily always respect the officers who came from other units there was always a sense of the first division being a real go getter kind of unit in combat but a handful in rear areas you know bars and fights and all this kind of stuff and and so Alan you know is is basically relieved of command although we will get another division later or because he was too good to sit out the war news here too much integrity as well but so if you've never becomes kind of the the alter ego of of Allan how there was a lot riding on Huber's appointment as the new division commander because this was one of the go to units in the entire European theater for the western allies it was the unit that obviously Bradley was going to rely upon for one of the key objectives on the Omaha beach so the choice of humor is is really quite fortuitous in that yeah a lot of combat experience in water one hitter in the distinguished service crosses and badly wounded he began the war as a lieutenant and it is a lieutenant colonel he had once been a private he joined the army as a private soldier so it really come up through the ranks he had a lot of experience at the staff level by the time the World War two and he had quite a bit experience with the first division because he served in a warmer one and the inter war period so he's really well prepared when he when he comes to take over the position what's really quite fascinating about this especially if you're interested in leadership regardless of military or not and the the story of Allen and Huebner tells you that good leadership can come in very different ways humor was much more about discipline about doing things by the book he was not that he wasn't a lead from the front courageous kind of guy but no you wouldn't necessarily circulate around as much in combat is Alan woods he was a preparer he was someone who was very big on training these guys to a standard and I really think that makes a difference on the day the he he trains them to a winning standard which ultimately does make make a positive difference yes train train train of long marches interchangeable a part of a fighting machine everybody had to be able to use another weapon if they and also to take up commands if their superior officers failed to the men resent this because you have one quote saying we hated we absolutely hated it what they resented with what they felt was shall we say military chicken you know what they they felt that human or animal I remember most these guys the private soldiers or whatever the twenty year old kid they have no idea who this man is worries come from they think they're they're dealing with a state subject desk jockey who's coming in trying to enforce you know garrison type rules on them saying oh now you need office lugar officers now you need to you know to have spit and Polish and all this kind of stuff well really what humor was concerned about is making sure orders would be followed and that's why you ordered he he orders the whole division to begin saluting their officers but of course they hated that they felt they were above it but really in the end what mattered most to him was applied training skills knowing your weapons being physically fit being able to step in for the people one or two rungs above you on the hierarchy understanding someone else's job understanding of previous operations anything that would enhance your survivability in combat so initially they hated the guy but as time went on it came to respect him because they knew he would be out there training along with them doing everything we asked them to do and they they understood the was quite proficient he was very very good any new news stop self by the time the debate was a kind of grudging respect for him in the aftermath of the day once the big red one succeeds and there they are they're really gonna fight their way all across all across France and Germany invention either there's a lot of the form between user and and the man in the division just like Alan in that respect so the big red one is fortunate to have two great commanders in the in the course of World War two and then a third one one student was promoted to core command later on John cliff Sanders who was also a fine commanders well the book is the dead and those about to die D. day the big red one in Omaha beach John McManus is the author and when we
