Larry Taylor

Instructor

The Gettysburg Leadership Experience isn’t a cookie-cutter program. It’s a creative, intellectual and organizing means to help participants think differently, more creatively and more critically. We try to provide the time, space, opportunity and incentive for them to challenge themselves to be better, with the battlefield providing the true magic of the program.

Former Ambassador Lawrence P. Taylor spent many years of his professional career providing leadership overseas. Today, after co-founding the Gettysburg Leadership Experience, he helps facilitate program sessions, bringing his exceptional leadership insight to life within the context of this pivotal Civil War battle. Over the 17 years since GLE was founded, Larry has guided hundreds of groups and thousands of participants through the program. Beginning with a very strong and sometimes provocative opening, he builds on the thoughts and experiences shared by the group and organically melds them into the topics being covered, tying the leadership lessons and the group’s insights together.
