Episode 33 - Life Lessons from the Civil War (Part VII-Abraham Lincoln)
Abraham Lincoln. The name is an icon; the man, a legend. As our podcast pivots to positive leadership examples from the Civil War, Lincoln ranks among the greatest. Frankly, in many ways, the Union’s survival is arguably due more to him than any other single person. Despite the Union’s overwhelming superiority in terms of men, material, and overall resources in 1861, the North was plagued by poor--sometimes terrible--military leadership, especially in the early years. In many ways, Lincoln held the country together. Take a listen to find out more of what made Lincoln successful, especially his humor, religious faith, powerful communication skills, sense of mercy. This episode closes with some famous Lincoln quotations.
