what is it?
The Gettysburg Leadership Experience utilizes an on-site series of visits to the Gettysburg Battlefield as the backdrop for a unique leadership development experience. Focusing on the challenges faced by the Union and Confederate leaders in 1863, during a time of crisis and action, we begin with a historical setting discussion and then use a seminar format to consider contemporary business challenges and methods to improve the overall business environment.
Throughout the Gettysburg Leadership Experience, the historical context of the battle will be used to emphasize the role of the leader to shape the future, to build and sustain teams, to manage process, and to nurture learning. At the conclusion of our battlefield maneuvers, we will discuss application for business leadership, building employee commitment, and individual development going forward in your organization.
