The Unfinished Work
The Gettysburg Leadership Experience advanced program is designed to help leaders such as you prepare effectively for organizational setbacks and reposition more rapidly when they occur. It leverages the lessons you learned during your first session at Gettysburg and integrates new knowledge of Meade, Lee, Lincoln, and their courses of action. It positions you to guide both people and processes during times of intense challenge. It’s the experience you need for these changing times.
Most visitors or programs conclude their experience at Gettysburg with the defeat of Pickett’s Charge on July 3, 1863. The more complete story continues through the following day, July 4, 1863—literally “four score and seven years” after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Both the Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac were still intact with many of the same players and leaders at the helm. Both armies, however, were facing new realities of victory and defeat.
In the space of an afternoon, the Army of Northern Virginia believed they could win the war, only to be dealt a catastrophic strategic loss. The Army of the Potomac, facing the possibility of defeat on the battleground, is now ultimately in a position to end the war. The Gettysburg Campaign would continue for 10 additional days.

Hear what others are saying:
"During a 40+ year career I have benefited from many opportunities to learn. The GLE course was absolutely excellent and among the highest quality of leadership training I have witnessed in the civilian portion of my career. The GLE "Advanced" has equally satisfied my thirst for more of this kind of training. I encourage FCC to expand into additional "modules" of the GLE to continue to improve and expand the overall effectiveness of NRECA Cooperatives and other FCC clients in preparing the next generation of leaders to be better than we are today."
"Retreat & Resilience was a perfect follow-up to the Gettysburg Leadership Experience. From learning how to lead through different situations to the challenge of leading during unpredictable times while demonstrating resilience in the face of change or opposition. The techniques learned through history set up a perfect opportunity to reflect on today's work challenges."
“…It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”.
Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863
