Summary of Lessons Learned

The Conference Board Leadership Experience at Gettysburg is a tool for building leadership practices.

By walking the actual field of battle of this pivotal conflict of the Civil War, and experiencing the magnitude of emotion first hand, the clash between these two great armies comes to life. How the combatant leadership performed under fire, how they communicated, followed orders and inspired their troops all can relate to challenges faced in your own organization. In the working sessions, you compare and contrast the strategies you’ve studied and explore them in the context of today’s business environment. By discussing the parallels with your peers and the program facilitators you build workable plans and practices to initiate in your own company. The enduring value of this event is that you'll go home with new vision and insights to manage through confrontation, uncertainty and change.

Gettysburg will better equip you to choose sound leadership strategies in the future when you come under fire — strategies that may make the difference between winning and losing.
