Harry Jones

Harry Jones is a leadership strategist with more than 20 years of experience in the US military. After flying helicopters for the Army for nearly a decade, he obtained a PhD in philosophy and taught cadets at West Point, focusing on ethics and creativity. More recently, a course he created called Character by Design introduced students to design skills and invited them to address character-related challenges at the United States Military Academy. Jones has witnessed first-hand the need for leaders who can operate effectively in complex environments where ambiguity and uncertainty are the norm. In view of this, he is especially passionate about developing leaders of character who are expert problem solvers, both highly creative and deeply ethical. Over the years, he has designed and executed numerous immersion experiences for leaders, engaging a variety of creative organizations ranging from IDEO and SYPartners to the Culinary Institute of America and the Museum of Modern Art and many others. He has also given talks on design and ethics at Oxford University, frog design and other notable organizations.
