Coaching and Leadership Lessons from the Gettysburg
This program day allows participants to learn the leadership and coaching
lessons from the Battle of Gettysburg. Walking the battlefield with experts on
the battle and on coaching, we will experience the challenges the leaders faced
and consider the coaching implications. The Battle of Gettysburg offers a rich
set of characters, personalities, decisions and examples of organizations that
resonate today. This experience will provide the opportunity for coaches to
think differently about individual and organizational challenges. Note: This
program day will begin early and end late. We will walk the battlefield during
the day and debrief the experience over dinner in the Gettysburg area.
Leadership Program Manager

structured, actionable format. We will solidify plans for alumni activities.
