Lead with Networks
Networks are essential to the development and success of leaders who look to navigate and seek a successful personal & professional balance within the marketplace. Research shows that those who move towards strong networks find the support, guidance, and connections to become a more powerful influencer and change agent within themselves and others.
Women of Distinction: The Gettysburg Leadership Experience is a four-day program that integrates three central and distinct groups of women into the current Gettysburg Leadership Experience: the women from varied professional backgrounds (cooperatives, corporate, government, military, and educational), women leaders who currently shape the Gettysburg community, and the female historical protagonists who responded in the time of crisis during the Battle of Gettysburg.

"The Gettysburg Leadership Women of Distinction program is an amazing experience. Networking with like-minded professional women from across the country, while learning historical examples of leadership displayed on the Gettysburg battleﬁeld and throughout the town was very impactful. The lessons helped me dive deep into my own leadership journey. The feeling of being right there on the battleﬁeld and seeing key points throughout the town solidiﬁed the lessons discussed, and truly brought history to life."
"I was very lucky to be at this event with a team of people from my company. This gave us a chance to grow as a team and give us an understanding and foundational relationship that we can build on to help take our company to the next level. What we learned and experience at Gettysburg will give us a framework and port of comparison that we could not have without this event."
“In a world where networks are more important than hierarchies, power goes to the connectors. The best leaders leap over silos and across organizational, geographic, and sector divides to align others behind their agendas. They think “outside the building” to form coalitions for change, built on a foundation of respect, and trust.”
