Recently more than 20 employees from Gables Residential participated in the Gettysburg Foundation’s leadership training program, “In the Footsteps of Leaders,” at Gettysburg National Military Park. This is the fifth year that Gables sent a team to Gettysburg as part of the Gables Leadership Institute, which provides high-performing employees with a comprehensive leadership training program at various locations across the country.
Facilitated by Dr. Jeffrey Kudisch, a Clinical Full Professor at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, and led by Sue Boardman, Director of the Gettysburg Foundation’s Executive Leadership Program, participants were treated to an immersive guided tour of the battlefield exploring the leadership styles of various personalities that played critical roles at the Battle of Gettysburg.
According to Philip Altschuler, Senior VP of Human Resources at Gables Residential, a day on the battlefield with Sue Boardman is worth many days in the classroom. “Walking in the footsteps of these battlefield commanders, and studying their decisions from the very location where they made them, provides a unique perspective for Gables associates to learn how leadership styles can affect team performance and provides an unparalleled opportunity to mentally prepare for future business challenges.”
Gettysburg Foundation thanks Gables Residential for five years of leadership training here at Gettysburg!
