The Battle of Antietam is the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, with a combined tally of 22,717 dead, wounded, or missing. In order to understand how and why battles are fought it is important to first understand the larger operational, strategic, and political context in which they occur.  This workshop begins with a brief seminar to provide an overview and leadership context for the Battle of Antietam. This is designed to help participants gain a clearer understanding of key leaders and the days’ events.  Then, led by a battlefield historian and leadership facilitator they will experience Antietam first-hand and learn about the leaders involved, how they made the decisions, and their motivations for those decisions. With this information we will further discuss important leadership lessons and how they apply to a contemporary organization. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss leadership styles and their importance in leading an organization.

  • Understand and apply the concepts of adaptinnovate, and overcome effectively in an organization.

  • Open discussions around strategic leadership, strategic vision, innovation, communications in an organization, “leading the boss”, and emotional intelligence.
