FIRST Sunday ‘Open House’ Civil War related History presentation

Senior Level Leadership at Gettysburg
by Col. Mark Eshelman (Ret.) Professor at the Army War College
Col. Eshelman will talk about senior level leadership from the perspective of a War College faculty instructor using the battle as a case study to teach students who have been successful at tactical level, but are entering a new level of leadership where they will need new skills and ways of thinking. These are also the senior level leadership points to consider. The War College hosts students for a two or three day program consisting of a Gettysburg Battlefield Staff Ride and subsequent senior leadership seminars. These groups are senior leaders from both private and public sectors, mostly senior executives from businesses using these events as a sort of “off-site” learning center.
FREE & Open to the public! (Donations accepted)
