step into the landscape where leadership lives.

Gettysburg. For three tumultuous days in 1863, this was the backdrop for one of the Civil War’s most dynamic encounters. Decisions made, opportunities missed, passions sparked and conversations avoided changed the course of our country. Today, this historically sacred setting is the site of a powerful, soles-on-the-ground program that looks to those leaders, lessons and legacy with a clear, contemporary purpose: to set the stage for you to prepare for your greatest challenges.

Outcomes

"This is a truly unique program and one that helps us communicate."

Harvest Land Co-Op

We are a $430 million organization with 300 full-time employees. We’ve had 30 employees attend The Gettysburg Leadership Experience thus far. This last time, we stayed an extra day to follow-up on projects we have put in place as a result of this process. This is a truly unique program and one that helps us communicate. We regularly talk in terms of ‘high ground.’ And when people reporting to me tell me of situations in their department, I’m likely to ask, ‘Is this a time you need to make that transactional decision or let them try?'

"As an organization, we have gained a shared language and opened new dialog."

Landmark Services

We have integrated The Gettysburg Leadership Experience into our ongoing development programs for both board members and executive leaders, using it as an incentive for active engagement. All who have attended have been very positive about their experiences and what they have learned in terms of ‘thinking on your feet’ leadership. As an organization, we have gained a shared language and opened new dialog.
