In this episode of The Remarkable Leadership Podcast, we get the chance to boost our trivia knowledge with a history lesson. Dr. Howard Markel, the author of The Kelloggs The Battling Brothers of Battle Creek, joins Kevin to discuss the story of the Kellogg brothers; their relationship and the building of an empire.  Dr. John Harvey Kellogg was the big brother and one of America’s most beloved physicians. In his time, he was a best-selling author, lecturer, health-magazine publisher; and founder of the famed Battle Creek Sanitarium. His youngest brother, Will, who worked with him became the founder of the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company, which revolutionized the mass production of food and what we eat for breakfast. Their dynamic and strained relationship help us identify different leadership strengths (and weaknesses) and dependence on each other for success.
