EF BATTLEFIELD – gettysburg


The military has long utilized battlefield reviews, commonly referred to as ‘Staff Rides,’ as a means to develop their leaders. Staff rides are a unique method of conveying the lesson of the past to present-day leaders, both military and private sector, for current application. EF Battlefield Review – Gettysburg is a two-day tour of a historic battlefield.

Participants walk through key successive battlefield locations (known as “stands”) where they receive an overview of the historical situation from a subject matter expert. The Echelon Front Team will then facilitate a discussion regarding the leadership theme related to current business challenges and implement practical application exercises to help participants understand how to implement the leadership principles on their own battlefield — limited to 40 participants. 


This course has absolutely changed my life. The leadership lessons shared by Jocko, Leif, Jason, and Steve overlapped perfectly with the lessons-learned at Gettysburg. The applications to personal and professional life can’t be overstated. 


This was a truly unique experience and a great opportunity to connect with proven and developing leaders to discuss how the decisions and events that took place on this historical battlefield still apply to situations business leaders face today. 


This event completely exceeded my expectations. I have never experienced an event like Battlefield before…Leadership lessons brought forth from the battlefield of Gettysburg by the EF team and made applicable to my personal and professional life will never be forgotten. Next year I’m bringing my entire team! 


“The EF Battlefield is a perfect platform to demonstrate how leadership decisions, good and bad, can mean the difference between winning or losing… or life of death. I can’t recommend this event enough”.
