The Experience: A Transformational Journey from Gettysburg

All programs offered by The Lincoln Leadership Institute prepare participants for our capstone transformational leadership experience—the 3-day Transformational Journey from Gettysburg. In an intimate, small group setting using experiential education, we explore several customized case studies of your choosing while providing participants with a unique, team-building, transactional leadership opportunity.

This Journey actually begins long before setting foot in the Gettysburg area. Participants prepare for their experience through compelling pre-session readings and an optional battery of assessment tools.

Sessions include time both in the classroom using our unique blended learning format, and on the hallowed ground of Gettysburg’s National Military Park. The battlefields become our learning laboratory as we retrace the steps of some of our history’s greatest leaders and monumental moments of history, such as Pickett’s Charge and the Gettysburg Address. Each of our case studies are then thoroughly debriefed by participants and the concepts learned—strategic advancement, seizing the high ground, Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain and the 20th Maine protect the left flank, courageous communication in the face of adversity—are applied to your specific organization’s challenges and needs. Many organizations opt to hold their own meetings at our locations either before or after their Journey to maximize group synergy and the leadership concepts learned.

While in Gettysburg, you and your team will enjoy an all-inclusive accommodation package at a full-service hotel or a quiet country inn—all arranged and handled by The Lincoln Leadership Institute. Options include the historic Gettysburg Hotel located in the center of Gettysburg’s historic district, the prestigious Wyndham Gettysburg Hotel, or the beautiful and historic 23-acre Antrim 1844 Country Inn with its renowned chef and extensive wine cellar.

In addition to our stunning case studies on leadership, other impactful sessions during your Journey focus on:

  • Negotiation – using proven win-win, performance improvement techniques to get your way while expending fewer of your organization's resources of time, money, schedules and people.
  • Communication – did you know that 93% percent of communication isn’t what you say? Learn tips to communicate at 100%—one hundred percent of the time.
  • Listening – it isn’t just waiting to speak! Rather it is key to being a good communicator and a good leader.
  • Wellness – achieving better work/life balance is essential to your leadership.

By attending our Journey you will be exposed to other topics and concepts that will start you on the road to your own leadership journey and help you stand apart from others in your organization.

Our program is about much more than achieving top efficiency or simply improving performance. We feel our learnings will help you develop a very special kind of enthusiasm and “sense of purpose” that can increase “followership” and bring truly magical consequences to you and your organization.
