I’ve spent a fair part of my career training and developing educators, so part of what I bring to Gettysburg Leadership Experience (GLE) participants is an understanding of how adults learn and what the process requires in terms of effective program design and facilitation. I’ve had the chance to design and facilitate a variety of leadership programs and am able to draw on the work I’ve done across sectors to help all participants find relevance and meaning in the topics we cover.
Learning in advance about each Gettysburg Leadership Experience participant group’s industry allows facilitator Scott Taylor to identify their shared dilemmas, draw parallels with the experience of Gettysburg leaders, and develop discussion points to connect GLE lessons with modern-day challenges. “My style is interactive and engaging, and most importantly invites participants to think for themselves,” Scott says. “I like to ask questions and encourage participants to think critically and discuss their shared experiences so they’re able to identify how to move themselves, their teams and their organizations forward in a way that lives out values and improves performance.”
