Normandy Leadership Experience: D-Day

The Normandy Invasion, and D-Day specifically, is a rich and stimulating source of leadership insight relevant to the challenges (and opportunities) of the current global business environment. Planning, organization, communication, teamwork, and initiative amidst profound and increasingly rapid changes in circumstance are as critical now to effective execution as they were in 1944.
Throughout the Normandy Leadership Experience we examine key strategic objectives and the tactical events that accompanied them, and we focus on the role that leadership played in effective implementation, or the lack thereof. We also reflect upon the relevance of these timeless lessons and how each relates to contemporary leadership initiatives in participants’ current roles. Hallmarks of effective leadership and decision making are explored in the context of the D-Day operations.

Who Should Attend

The leadership principles and concepts presented through the Normandy Leadership Experience can be tailored to meet the needs of the highest level senior leaders to the less-experienced yet rising leaders within an organization. The Normandy program explores universal leadership themes that any leader will find beneficial to his or her career growth and/or organizational aspirations. However, the Normandy Leadership Experience will be highly beneficial for leaders of large, complex, multi-national or multi-cultural organizations that are experiencing tremendous change, and/or professionals who are charged with leading a team (or teams) of the same nature.
