The keynote speaker for this year’s Wyoming Library Leadership Institute is Larry Yatch, a Retired Navy SEAL and Team Performance Expert (SEALed Mindset Leaders). The Institute will be held in Lander, Wyoming on July 19-20 at Central Wyoming College’s Lander campus.
Larry has been a leader while serving in extreme environments across the globe. Among many of his stellar accomplishments and sacrifices, he planned and led an assault on the world’s largest oil platform in the largest Special Operations mission in history during the opening night of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He has applied the lessons learned from these experiences to develop SEALed Mindset, a company that repurposes leadership and training principles from SEAL Teams to other arenas.
The Fremont County Library System is providing two guest speakers. FCLS Director Janette McMahon will discuss the importance of reader’s advisory, and Lander Library Teen Librarian Audie Cunningham will conduct a session on how to be creative when you aren’t necessarily a creative person. Additional speakers are planned, but have not yet been announced.
The Leadership Institute exists to provide opportunities for learning, mentoring and developing leadership skills to promote the personal and professional growth of the Wyoming library community. From 10-12 Wyoming library employees will be accepted for WLLI through a competitive application process. Accommodations and meals will be provided to participants.
