Walkshop I – Sign Up Now [Open]

Take a walk to 5 places in downtown Indianapolis that tell the powerful story of a 28-year old leader who is about to make a decision that changes life and leadership as he knows it.

What’s The Goal? To prepare you as a leader for the next big, shocking change

What’s The Method? You are one of a 3-5 person group that walks to 5 places vital to the story of our 28-year old leader on July 9, 1862.

Who Is He? Benjamin Harrison. For the past 15 months he has wrestled over what to do since he first heard in April 1861 about the start of the Civil War. Now, in July 1862, he makes his decision. You will walk to the 5 spots in downtown Indianapolis, doing what Harrison did on that fateful day.

What else? Beginning 2-4 weeks before the Walkshop, you’ll receive emails that represent one month of time in the life of Harrison and the Civil War, from April 1861 to July 1862. In each email I summarize the month’s key events for Harrison, the Civil War, and the lessons for you. You’ll experience the fascinating river of time that takes him to the day of decision.

What’s the result for me? Preparation, personally and professionally, for processing the next Major Change that hits your life. Make no mistake: it will happen to you.

Length and Location? The Walkshop occurs in downtown Indianapolis, running for 2.5 hours. 60 minutes are for walking and talking. We sit down the remaining 90 minutes for coffee, dialogue, and reflection. We start on the east lawn of the Indiana Statehouse and end on the Circle. Walkshops will be formed over the next several weeks.

Cost? $350, due at invoicing, and covers all written materials prior to the date and refreshments on the date itself. To register, call Dr. Dan Miller (317-407-3687) or email:  dan@historicalsolutions.com

What have other participants said who have done this?

David:  “What a great concept! Dan selected the key sites that were formative in Benjamin Harrison’s decision process. It made the story of Harrison’s leadership dilemma come to life. As we walked and talked, we got a chance to process events and facts at a pace that Harrison himself would have processed them. Yet, with the sounds of modern Indianapolis surrounding us, we got to see how the decisions Harrison made were just as relevant to use today. You can’t read enough to get a sense of the story that Dan provides. You can’t walk the streets yourself and understand what was going through Harrison’s mind. It was Dan’s story-telling and his understanding of the challenges of leadership that made the Walkshop a huge success.”
