What it takes to lead during a crisis

Communication is key, three of Rhode Island's public servants told more than 150 of their peers who attended an Oct. 23 conference sponsored by the Hassenfeld Institute for Public Leadership.

General Treasurer Gina Raimondo, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras and Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian describe what they learned about leadership during  "crucible experiences." For Raimondo, her crucible moment was the state's pension crisis, for Taveras it was the potential of Providence going bankrupt, and for Avedisian it was record flooding in 2010.
