Leadership Through Followership
Followership is a comprehensive field of study within leadership and is critical to organizational success. Two crucial behaviors are exhibited by the most effective followers – Critical Thinking and Active Engagement. Critical thinkers bring creativity and innovation and offer constructive feedback to enhance results. Followers that are actively engaged take on initiatives and assume ownership for accomplishing goals.
Every individual in an organization, including the CEO, must balance the dual role of leader and follower, whether reporting to a board of directors, stakeholders, clients or colleagues—we are all held accountable to someone.

Hear what others are saying:
"The Gettysburg Leadership Experience is exactly that: an AMAZING EXPERIENCE! It isn't just another training or conference; it's a full experience. The instructors and guides elevate the learning concepts to the next level. I have been impacted by this leadership training in a whole new way, and I have meaningful lessons to use and apply after leaving Gettysburg. This is hands down the leadership training you need to attend!"
"I left the GLE with a lot to reﬂect on. Finally a course that explains the equal importance of the leader AND the follower. Instead of learning about these concepts via graphs, visuals, and boring presentations, we learned about them on a battleﬁeld, where these leadership/followership lessons impacted our country in a great way and our very lives today. This was the most eﬀective self development training I have ever attended."
“Exemplary followers play a crucial role in determining organizational success because they are independent, innovative and willing to question leadership.”
