What can the Wild West teach us about the 21st century? Turns out, quite a lot. At noon on Wednesday, December 3, Dr. Tim White shares Leadership Secrets of the Wild West in a free presentation in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Coe Auditorium.
In the program, White takes the audience through a surprising, multi-media exploration through the myths, legends, and characters of the American West and the timeless leadership lessons they offer today. Among those whose lives offer lessons are Billy the Kid, Nez Perce leader Chief Joseph, Theodore Roosevelt, and, of course, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody.
The program grew from a project at the Air War College, and has been presented to government, business, and academic audiences across the country. White is a retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General. In a civilian broadcast career, he won six Emmy awards and produced documentaries for public television.
Now a resident of Cody, Wyoming, White serves on the Advisory Board of the Center of the West’s Draper Natural History Museum.
Since 1917, the award-winning Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, has devoted itself to sharing the story of the authentic American West. The Center is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. For additional information, visit centerofthewest.org or the Center’s Facebook page.
