DISTRICT ATTORNEY LYKOS ON LEADERSHIP: Pat Lykos - Republican Speaks:to Aubrey R. Taylor about the importance of electing good leadership during times of crisis
DISTRICT ATTORNEY PAT LYKOS: "Leadership is vital to swift assessment, rapid response, optimizing use of resources, adaptation to changing circumstances and minimizing collateral damage in controlling a crisis. Leaders should always demonstrate a calm confidence and be decisive. The effective enforcement of our criminal laws is essential to keeping the social fabric intact, which is based upon law and order and the rule of law. As Drucker said, “Leaders do the right things and managers do things right.” Good leaders hold themselves accountable first, and then their subordinates." NOTE: Pat Lykos was the Republican nominee for Harris County District Attorney back in the 2008 Presidential Election when she provided me with this statement. She went on to win her race in the election.
