Course description

Kennesaw Leadership Program

Battlefield Leadership offers a variety of onsite programs, all of which showcase vivid and profoundly impressive leadership lessons from history. Our battlefield-based leadership training sessions vary from one to four days in length and use great battles from military history as intensive case studies as a basis for examining and learning about contemporary business leadership practices.

Programs are conducted on location, on the actual terrain of the historic battles, and feature lodging and meeting venues which are as period-authentic as possible.

Through a combination of historical case studies and workshop discussions, participants of this company-specific course with Battlefield Leadership will be inspired to hone their abilities to think clearly, act decisively, and lead with determination, even during periods of ambiguity.

The events of the roughly 20 days of battle in the Kennesaw area offer in-depth looks at some of the Civil War’s most flamboyant characters, as well as unsung heroes during the fighting on this well-preserved battleground in the immediate outskirts of Atlanta.

Selected leadership competencies for the Kennesaw Leadership Program are:

  • Proactive utilization of competitive intelligence
  • Ensuring clarity of intent and expectations
  • Forging alignment on strategy and objective
  • Dealing with executive disagreement

Training content

The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain was the last major Confederate defensive prior to the battles for Atlanta during Sherman’s March to the Sea. In a battle generally regarded as a debacle for Sherman and a masterful defense by Johnston, the Confederate withdrawal from its invulnerable fortifications under cover of darkness signaled a serious misalignment at the strategic level between Jefferson Davis and his commanding general Joseph Johnston.

The consequences of this misalignment were far-reaching and portended the inevitability of defeat for the Confederacy. Johnston’s replacement as army commander by the impetuous John Bell Hood evidenced the rapidly growing desperation of President Jefferson Davis, and Sherman’s capture of Atlanta on September 2, 1864, gave the Northern population confidence in Abraham Lincoln’s ability to bring an end to the war, leading to his re-election in November and finally sealing the fate of the Confederacy and its bid for independence.
