The workshop model combines case studies, battle maps, video clips, PowerPoint slide content, facilitated general discussions, and small group work as part of the design. They are highly interactive among participants and strongly iterative between facilitators and the audience. The proprietary case studies act as the centerpiece, and the programs are designed modularly to accommodate differing delivery requirements. The general rule of thumb is two hours of program time for each case study included, with six to eight hours as an optimal program length. However, if a client wants a more lasting impact and a more focused deliverable as part of the process, a 1.5-day (12-hour) approach is recommended, and an overnight period and targeted work assignment figure into the reflection time for the participants. The minimum program time is four hours. Workshops are offered in three categories:
Battlefield Leadership’s workshops are highly impactful and cost-effective formats for delivering the same leadership concepts and principles examined through our onsite battlefield programs. Because our battle-based workshops replicate all but the physical experience of being on location where these historic events occurred, participants in these workshops emerge with the same kind of focused strategies for leadership development and improvement in effectiveness as they do from our corresponding battlefield experiences.
We also offer workshops based on key figures from history, both past and contemporary, whose decisions and actions have had a pivotal role in shaping the history of their times, their countries, or the entire world. These individual-based workshops focus on notable leaders in history.
Participants can also benefit from our theme-based events. Our theme-based workshops focus on key thematic elements, and they contain cases based on individuals from different periods of history who were faced with similar challenges and who demonstrated similar principles through their leadership examples.
