Profiles in Leadership

The experiences of Maj. Dick Winters (WWII, Band of Brothers), Jackie Robinson (Brooklyn Dodgers), and famed Computer Programmer Grace Hopper (US Navy 1943-1986) are investigated for the clues they provide about how leaders remain highly effective trailblazers. 

  • Methodology & Delivery

    Combining pre-reading with the use of highly effective technology, mixed media such, and case studies, our theme-based workshops can be delivered in traditional corporate conference venues to groups as small as 20 participants or as large as 1,400 participants at once.

    Our programs are designed in a modular fashion so sessions of differing lengths and depth can be developed to meet an organization’s objectives and needs. Working in advance to create a highly customized session, we can highlight selected combinations of case studies and battle events in order to emphasize certain lessons or messages.  The programs can also be intermittently delivered in an interstitial mode to fit differing agendas or featured as parts of broader agendas for corporate meeting or conference plans.

Format

The general rule is two hours of program time for each case study included, with six-eight hours as an optimal program length.  However, if a client wants more lasting impact and a more focused deliverable as part of the process, a 1.5-day (12-hour) approach is recommended so an overnight period and a targeted work assignment figures into the reflection time for the participants. The minimum program time is four hours.
