2020 has created an array of unprecedented challenges, testing the resiliency, fortitude, and adaptability of Pennsylvania’s business community. As we navigate the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the way we conduct business, it is critical that we look to historical lessons learned to effectively lead our organizations forward.

Join us as we gather on the Gettysburg battlefield to engage in interactive programming inspired by the actions of real-life decision makers at the Battle of Gettysburg. The 2-day program will focus on key leadership lessons in adaptability, strategy, communication, team building and decision making.

Health and Safety Protocols
The program, which primarily takes place outdoors, will be conducted in compliance with all CDC and state-issued health guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all participants.

Program Highlights:

  • Learn leadership lessons from a curriculum developed by battlefield historians, leadership development experts and business executives.
  • Increase the ability to address conflict and lead through challenging situations.
  • Build and develop leadership skills.
  • Overcome organizational challenges and prepare for future opportunities.
  • Gain inspiration and motivation from the program's on-the-battlefield headquarters at the George Spangler Farm & Field Hospital.
