With his diverse background in the healthcare industry and the consulting field, Richard E. Thomas brings years of knowledge and experience in organizational transformation to Legacy Leadership, LLC.

An example of the unique leadership training provided by Legacy Leadership, LLC, is its Battle of Fort Pulaski Experience. In this one-day program, participants learn about the critical decisions made by Robert E. Lee, Captain Josiah Tattnall, and others during the 1862 battle that raged on for 30 hours. Facing high-powered guns and cannons, Pulaski Commander Charles Olmstead had to make critical decisions about protecting his fort, his resources, and his men. Setting clear expectations, considering all variables when making a decision, acting as a member of a team, and properly executing plans are some of the leadership dimensions that program participants study while discussing the Fort Pulaski battle.

Other programs offered by Legacy Leadership focus on battles at Hilton Head Island, SC, Charleston, SC, Kennesaw, GA, Franklin, TN, Garryowen, MT, Normandy, France and Gettysburg, PA as case studies exemplifying leadership and teamwork. Richard E. Thomas also uses the Antarctic expedition of Ernest Shackleton, the establishment of the first European colony in North America at Santa Elena, and the careers of Nelson Mandela and Sir Winston Churchill as leadership case studies
