I grew up surrounded by people in leadership positions, and in my career have worked in areas of strategic importance to the US where good policy is made possible by the leadership of specific individuals, This decades-long exposure to strong and effective leaders contributes to what I’m able to share with GLE participants.
Working with the Gettysburg Leadership Experience (GLE) for 15 years, Susan Eisenhower brings the leadership lessons from the Battle of Gettysburg into the 20th century by discussing the life and leadership legacy of Dwight D. Eisenhower, two-term US President from 1953 – 1961 and Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War Two, and also Susan’s grandfather. Her conversational style is full of relevant illustrations and stories of significant moments in leadership.
Following her leadership conversation, Susan brings participants to visit her grandparents’ farm in Gettysburg. “It’s an honor to take groups of the caliber who attend GLE to my grandparents’ farm, where I spent so much meaningful time growing up,” Susan says. “It was the center of our family life while our grandparents were alive, and I’m one of only four people who still spend time there.”
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.
