"As a leader, I empower others through team building and trust to identify shared goals and exceptional outcomes. I have learned that the most effective leadership style to express the vision, mission and values of a community college for students, faculty, staff, board members, alumni and the community is storytelling. Throughout my career, I have enjoyed listening to and learning from all these constituencies, and through storytelling, I have been able to be the catalyst for students, faculty, staff and board members to accomplish what others have perceived impossible." — Robert M. Harris, Ph.D
