Bill Rosenbach


At the beginning of each session, I work to create a climate of participation by asking pertinent questions that do not have one right answer. By focusing on the conceptual content of the module/case study rather than the historical military issues, this fosters proactive reflection.

Dr. William E. Rosenbach is a founding partner of the Gettysburg Leadership Experience. He continues to facilitate program sessions that embody the power of transformational leadership and enable each participant to apply the leadership lessons of the Battle of Gettysburg to their lives. Researching and teaching leadership for more than 40 years, Bill is the Evans Professor of Eisenhower Leadership Studies and Professor of Management Emeritus at Gettysburg College.

Additional Background

  • He currently consults with business, government and not-for-profit organizations in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, United Arab Emeritus and Saudi Arabia
  • Formerly served as the Professor/Department Head, Behavioral Sciences and Leadership with the U.S. Air Force Academy
  • Co-authored Contemporary Issues in Leadership (Editions 1-7), Leadership: Challenges for Today’s Managers, and Military Leadership (Editions 1-6), as well as more than fifty publications in scientific and professional journals and books
  • A graduate of the University of Colorado/Boulder, holding a PhD in Business Administration (Organizational Behavior)


Our faculty is made up of instructors and guides, many of whom are licensed battlefield guides. Instructors and guides are chosen for each session based upon the identified goals of the group.
