Today’s episode of At Home Diaries is our World of Strategy podcast. Every Friday, we look for the strategies being used in the world around us. On today’s episode, we ask ourselves the question many people around the world have been asking since the U.S. election’s thrilling conclusion: How did Donald Trump become President of the United States? The simple answer? By being the loudest guy in the room.
This isn’t a question that can be answered lightly but we can at least cover the tip of the iceberg. During the episode we’ll explore Donald Trump’s natural transition from Reality TV star to POTUS and see how he used the same strategies that helped him win ratings in The Apprentice to win the presidency of the United States; how creating an archetype separates a human connection between Trump as a character and the voyeurs who watch his every move; and how you don’t need to be the smartest or most convincing person in the room – you just need to be the loudest.
