For those people that want more information about the lessons and examples of leadership we offer a programme that includes an indoor presentation/workshop and a tour of the battle fields where decisions were made..
We may think that our business leaders of today know their stuff, or maybe not as recent years have shown, but when it comes to true leadership nothing compares to the ultimate test shown by officers and men in the fog and confusion of war.
With the coming of corporate business in the late 16th and early 17th century it was realised that a more formalised structure was needed. At this time the only large structured organisations in existence were the Church and the Army. The Army system was adopted and still to this day most businesses, corporations and institutions use this heirarchical model.
“I also particularly enjoyed being able to draw parallels with the challenges that the planners and leaders faced and the modern day challenges that we do in our much less important jobs!”
General Manager Allianz Commercial UK
“It was way ahead of my expectations, and loved the personal stories and the wider link into how effective different leadership and management styles work (or don’t).”
Eamon van der Flier
Head of buying (Dairy and Frozen) Waitrose Ltd
This programme is ideal whether you are a CEO, manager, supervisor, teacher, parent or someone who wants to know more, we can help make you a better leader by using examples from the officers and men that were involved in D Day and the battle for Europe. You will see where a young Lieutenant Dick Winters carried out his famous assault of Brecort Manor that was immortalised in the Band of Brothers HBO mini series.
