For over 2 decades, Tigrett Leadership Academy has provided historic leadership training to government, private industry, and non-profit groups. Using case studies from history, class facilitation, movies, reenactors, and site visits, Tigrett Leadership Academy examines the lives and leadership styles of historic role models like Abraham Lincoln, Eisenhower, Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Clara Barton.

Why use history? The challenges these historic leaders faced remain familiar today—how to do more with less, how to inspire people working under tough conditions, how to empower others to adapt to a world of constant change. Their solutions can inspire us in ways that conceptual, lecture-based training never will.

What makes us unique?  Our programs are never one-sided! We don't lecture or spend hours on stage delivering a "feel good" speech.  Your time with us will be spent engaging with peers in round-table discussions, analyzing workplace challenges, and doing self-awareness exercises under the guidance of a facilitator with decades of experience. Distinguished leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Frederick Douglass, whose challenges are still relevant to business professionals today, are the inspiration behind our interactive programs. Excursions are designed to deliver the full impact of experiential learning that you will never forget. Visit sites where great leaders made critical decisions that affected world history. Our programs were designed to help you discover real-world applications to solve real-world issues. And you might learn a little history too!

Our specialty is site-based, 3-day workshops, but if you need a shorter program, an extended site retreat, or an after-dinner speaker, we can tailor a session for your needs. We are a turn-key operation. Let us handle the details. We will do as little or as much as you'd like including: 

  • Book hotel rooms
  • Book meeting space
  • Handle meeting room logistics from AV and coffee breaks to registration
  • Arrange group meals
  • Schedule excursions, guides, and group activities
  • Other special requests
