Leadership During a Crisis: Lessons from Gettysburg
The COVID-19 crisis has created one of biggest opportunities in history for strong leaders to showcase their abilities. Businesses have been forced to become stronger in communications, logistics and empowerment. It has also allowed natural leaders to emerge from within.
In 1863, America faced another major crisis – The American Civil War. Extraordinary leadership actions during the battle still resonate with modern day leaders in the military, business, politics and education. In the three sessions of "Leadership During a Crisis: Lessons from Gettysburg," attendees will have the opportunity to uncover their own leadership abilities through inspirational stories of leadership of courage.
Learn about remarkable communication between commanders and their subordinates without the luxury of technology. Understand the massive task of organizing, mobilizing, and deploying a force of thousands of troops for battle. We’ll also discuss the importance of empowering your subordinates to make critical decisions in the face of terrifying circumstances.
