Battle-based Classroom Programs

These programs are typically utilized as cascading mechanisms or follow-on activity from a prior onsite, battlefield-based program. They are designed so that participants share an understanding of the same context, characters, case studies, language, and leadership lessons as participants who have attended a program on that battlefield. People emerge with the same kind of focused strategies for leadership development and improvement in effectiveness as they do from our corresponding battlefield experiences. With the ability to create highly customized offsite experiences, Battlefield Leadership is the only company to currently offer classroom versions of its battlefield programs.
