Fireside Forum: Leadership at Gettysburg
Join us around the fireplace for a presentation by Ed Ruggero on "Leadership at Gettysburg."
In the summer of 1863 two vast armies, the Federal Army of the Potomac and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, clashed in a three day struggle near the otherwise sleepy crossroads town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The battle, which would turn out to be one of the turning points of the American Civil War, is, among other things, a fascinating study of leadership in action. Leaders at all levels and on both sides tackled unimaginable challenges that tested them and their soldiers. Our Fireside Forum will delve into the exploits of a few of these leaders to see why some succeeded and others failed.
Ed Ruggero is the creator and facilitator of The Gettysburg Leadership Experience, a three day retreat for business executives that uses history to help participants uncover insights that can help them better lead their modern organizations. Since 2004 Ed has led scores of teams on this incredible, emotional, and intellectually stimulating journey.
