  • 2. Buffalo Bill’s Life on the Frontier Longest continuous pony express ride Killed 12 buffalo with 11 bullets. He hunted buffalo to feed the Kansas-Pacific railway workers Rescued a group of soldiers in a blinding blizzard by orienting based on how the wind was hitting his ear. Hero in battle field even as a civilian scout with no obligation to fight Led soldiers to within 50 yards of an opposing army’s encampment Received a medal of honor.
  • 3. “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West” • After life on the frontier, founded the Wild West show. • Show ran for about 30 years. • Show traveled throughout the US and Europe, performed in over 1000 locations. • 600 cast members, 400 horses, herd of 20 buffalo. • In addition to entertainment, education of attendees a priority
  • 4. Integration: Work and Community • The cast of the Wild West show became Bill’s community • Treated cast members like family, treated all cast members fairly • Bill became a strong advocate for native Americans, often commenting in the public sphere on their behalf • Bill was also devoted to developing infrastructure in the west, founded Cody Wyoming, and spent much of his personal wealth on development projects
  • 5. Integration: Family • Bill had a rocky family life. Wife loved stability and simplicity in her life. Bill had a passion for adventure. Differences created significant strain in their marriage. • Bill tried to adjust his life around his family (tried stage acting, and hotel management), but always found himself unhappy and craving the excitement of the road • The difference between this picture of Bill with his family and the previous picture of Bill with some of his professional and community stakeholders highlights a contrast in the level of integration in Bill’s life domains.
  • 6. Total Leadership Lessons • Bill demonstrated significant flexibility in leveraging talents and passions – He was happy with very diverse career paths at different stages of his life as long as the path fed his passion for excitement, risk, and adventure – Bill’s professional life became his community life. • Bill life is an example of how constraints among various life domains can come into conflict. – Bill’s marriage and family life created friction primarily because his wife didn’t share his passion for excitement, risk, and adventure.
