Program Description

This explosively powerful multimedia experience will forever enhance your insight into leadership, followership and organizational effectiveness. History becomes a metaphor and the battlefields of the Gettysburg National Military Park a classroom as leadership - in a rapidly changing, stressful environment, with limited information and limited resources - is examined. These challenges were present in 1863 are present in your organization today.

Sessions focus on the use of the actionable concepts of transactional, transformational, and anticipatory leadership - qualities demonstrated by Col. Joshua Chamberlain and his valiant and successful effort to have his troops hold the left flank of the Union Army.

Steven B. Wiley - "The best speaker you've never heard of"- ABC News - leads you on this journey that has positively impacted the bottom lines of his clients by millions of dollars. USA Today/Gannett calls it "The most powerful performance training available."

With 70% of US employees saying that they are "not engaged" or "actively disengaged" at work with the number one reason being the quality of their leadership, this session is one that every leader in the IG community needs to experience.

Value to Participants

Participants will leave with:

  • A greater knowledge of transactional, transformational and anticipatory leadership styles and when to use them
  • An enhanced insight into their own leadership style and suggestions as how to stretch those styles when necessary
  • A clear understanding of the value of finding their organization's "high ground" (preparing and positioning the organization for success)
  • A realization of the importance of defending their "left flank" (any vulnerabilities if not addressed could result in less than optimal results)
  • An opportunity to be entertained and to learn both intellectually and emotionally through our use of creative historical metaphor

Comments from OIG program participants

From the March 2008 Session ~

  • Absolutely wonderful integration of Civil War events and practical ideas of improving leadership skills.
  • Excellent training. Each day exceeded my expectations. Picked up a number of tools to help me and hopefully the organization.
  • Completely different from any leadership training that I have had before.
  • Fantastic experience! The battlefield connection was, to my surprise, an incredible and effective way of making the points being taught. This is a program that actually works.
  • One of the more interesting styles of leadership training I have had the pleasure of participating in. The use of the Civil War metaphor was extremely informative. Really will help to focus on many of the challenges I have to deal with on a daily basis. All of the speakers were excellent.
  • Everyone in the IG community should be exposed to his presentation!!
  • More people should hear this message. This was an incredible experience.
