Jimmy Carter Changes a Process

Check out The Thiagi Group's Training Intelligence Podcast, episode 17. In this episode, Matt Richter continues the new series exploring leadership lessons learned from US Presidents. We explore the evolution of how US Vice Presidents have historically been chosen and how the role has shifted over the centuries. The episode culminates with the story of Jimmy Carter, 39th President, who literally changed the process and more importantly, the values that informed how a President chose a running mate; and how that individual has served in office. The lessons derived from this exploration center on using historical precedent to guide your own decisions, using risk management to identify situations that may hurt you, and deciding to mitigate those risks.
