Lt. General Russel L. Honore  

Commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, Leadership Expert & Global Preparedness Authority

Lt. General Russel L. Honoré helps organizations develop a culture of preparedness and problem solving with strategies for transforming individuals into take-charge leaders.

As the commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, he became known as the “Category 5 General” for his striking leadership style in coordinating military relief efforts in post-hurricane New Orleans. A decorated 37-year army veteran and global authority on leadership, Gen. Honoré is the go-to expert on CNN on emergency and disaster preparedness and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria crisis management.

Drawing on his in-the-trenches experience managing conflicts of both the natural and man-made variety, his disciplined leadership takeaways inspire audiences in a range of fields, including business, management, government, military and education. His third book, “Don't Get Stuck on Stupid,” will be released in fall 2017, and challenges society in the age of the new normal—a business environment where change and unpredictability are constants, and individual resilience is mandatory.

Authentic and uplifting, Gen. Honoré delivers a bracing dose of candor in his talks with real-world leadership lessons that equip audiences with a preparedness mindset. Gen. Honoré shares his no-nonsense approach to getting the job done and instills confidence in tomorrow’s leaders.
