Doris Kearns Goodwin, I have a question for you. Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? As the impeachment train wends its way down the tracks these questions and more seem uniquely relevant. And it is the reason why I invited historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the author of LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES to discuss Donald Trump, leadership, and so much more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com. And, as we do every week, my partner in politics former White House corespondent, Matthew Cooper and I will slice and dice all things politics.
In her #1 New York Times bestseller, LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES, now out in paperback, Doris Kearns Goodwin combines her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nation’s presidents—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson. She writes that no common pattern describes the trajectory of leadership. Although set apart in background, abilities, and temperament, these men shared a fierce ambition and a deep-seated resilience that enabled them to surmount uncommon adversity. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. And then there was Donald Trump. Are leadership and moral purpose a thing of the past? My good friend and Pulitzer Prize winning author and baseball aficionado, Doris Kearns Goodwin joins me on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. Do tune in!
And as always, my partner in politics, Matthew Cooper and I slice and dice all things politics, this week our focus on impeachment, and a whole lot more.
