Through on-the-ground study of the leadership challenges facing commanders in the largest battle ever fought in North America, participants learn practical, usable lessons-about team building, morale and courage, dealing with ambiguity, effective communication, and the execution of strategic intent - that will benefit their organizations today. The Gettysburg Leadership Experience is not a study of military strategy, but an excellent opportunity to stimulate new thinking and a new understanding of leadership, teamwork and communication.We begin with dinner at the Antrim House, an ante bellum farm mansion (now a corporate retreat) used as a temporary headquarters by the Union's General Meade on July 1, 1863. After dinner, our historian will put the battle in context with a quick overview of the major participants and what they were trying to accomplish.We will tour the battlefield by foot and in a small bus, stopping at vantage points that overlook the fields and at various locations-such as McPherson's Ridge, Seminary Ridge and Culp's Hill-where important events in the story actually occurred. We eat lunch in a notable Gettysburg restaurant that was a private home in 1863, and then return to the battlefield to visit the Wheat Field, Little Round Top, the Virginia Memorial, the route of Pickett's Charge and the High Water Mark. On the second evening, we reconvene in the Antrim House for a discussion of lessons learned and how we might apply these principles today.
