"Crisis leadership requires real-time decision-making ..."


Why they're a Crisis Leader:

I met Harry and his soon-to-be wife Tracy in 1994 while volunteering for the same service agency in Dallas. It was clear from my first contact with Harry that he was an authentic man of service and leadership.

Harry’s authenticity is the first thing people notice about him. And his achievements illustrate his endless capacity for service.

Even though the demands on his time are extraordinary, when you’re speaking to him, he makes you feel like you are the only person in the room.

You’ll hear Harry mention the importance of our inner compass for us to navigate with Integrity, Intelligence, and Intent. From him, it’s not just advice; it’s also how he lives his life. Very, very authentic. In a crisis, this is even more evident.

As the twice-elected leader of one of the nation's largest cities, Harry radiates leadership competence.

And his insights into what makes a leader successful are one of many attributes that separate Harry from other elected officials and further cements his legacy as a leader among leaders.
