Battle Based Classroom Programs

These programs are typically utilized as cascading mechanisms or follow-on activity from a prior onsite battlefield-based program.  They are designed so that participants will share an understanding of the same context, characters, cases, language and leadership lessons as participants who have attended a program on that battlefield.  People emerge with the same kind of focused strategies for leadership development and improvement in effectiveness as they do from our corresponding battlefield experiences.  With the ability to create highly customized classroom experiences, Battlefield Leadership is the only company to currently offer classroom versions of its battlefield programs.

Ia Drang - Vietnam Classroom Programs

Offered at various locations

Set along the Cambodian border early in the United States’ military involvement in Vietnam, in a remote area later called The Forest of the Screaming Souls, leadership in ambiguous and volatile circumstances is brought into clear focus.  The decisions and actions of two American commanders (COL Hal Moore and LT Rick Rescorla) and one North Vietnamese commander (COL Nguyen Huu Anh) during the first pitched battle of the Vietnam War between North Vietnamese Regulars and U.S. forces in November of 1965 are of central importance in illustrating the principles of adaptive leadership, commitment to mission and individual determination as active forces for leadership effectiveness in a rapidly changing environment.
