History-Based Leadership & Communication Training

“Those who fail to learn from history are condemned
to repeat it.”

Individuals, teams and organizations today need professional development training that makes a lasting impact. We’ve found the solution. We get people out of the office and into a fully immersive experience-based environment. Our history-based programs are impactful, memorable and highly applicable today’s chaotic workplace.

The Making of the U.S. Constitution

After declaring its independence and winning the Revolution, the fledging American nation faced an even greater challenge: Could 13 separate states, with wildly different interests, unite under a common vision? And how could the lofty ideals of the American Revolution be codified for all Americans to unite behind?

Participants Examine: We review the importance of defining a common and unifying vision for organizations and teams. We examine what is required for fostering healthy debate, active participation and diversity of input. We study the key drivers to effective planning, conflict resolution and compromise.

Ulysses S. Grant and the Battles of Chattanooga

In the fall of 1863, an entire 40,000-man Union army was trapped in the strategically important town of Chattanooga, Tenn.  Major General Ulysses S. Grant was ordered to Chattanooga to break the Rebel siege.

Participants Examine: Grant’s brilliant leadership qualities, as well as his shortcomings.  We explore the unmitigated Confederate leadership dysfunction that played a major role in the Union victory at Chattanooga.

The Washington Leadership Experience

In early December 1776, the American Revolution hung by a thread. Washington’s army was demoralized and broken. Washington gambled the entire Revolution on a daring night crossing of the Delaware River to attack Hessian troops headquartered in Trenton.

Participants Examine: Washington’s character, decision-making and the novel approach he took to team building. We review the strategies, tactics and inner-dynamics of the Hessian and British high command.

Communication Training Workshops

Remote workforces. Siloed departments. Multi-generational teams. How do leaders foster greater trust and better communication to achieve their goals?

Our half-day, full-day or multi-day workshops are fully customized. They are developed from real-world experience, not academic theories. We get to the heart of our clients’ challenges to help them attack and overcome the hurdles holding them back.

Chaos to Clarity

A large portion of organizational and team dysfunction — a direct contributor to workplace chaos – is due to poor communication. But chaos turns to clarity when people listen effectively, build trust and communicate with purpose and meaning.

Participants Learn: How to connect core leadership skills with essential communication techniques to strengthen their own “personal brand” and those around them. From the art of story telling to enhancing executive presence, we unlock the power of effective communication to help you succeed in today’s chaotic workplace.
