Southwest Airlines CEO Tells MPA Grads What it Takes to Be a Leader

In his commencement speech for the Masters of Professional Accounting ceremony May 20, Gary Kelly, BBA ’77, chairman, president and CEO of Southwest Airlines, described five characteristics he believes leaders must exhibit: 1. Leaders must care. “Leadership is about people. Period. Great leadership is about inspiring people, serving people, caring for people, caring about people. You have to tell them you care.” 2. Leaders must communicate. “Any time you work with a group you should expect disagreement. Teamwork isn’t about ‘going along;’ it’s about listening to opposing views, admitting mistakes, and sharing risks and rewards.” 3. Leaders must have character. “You are destined to face very difficult problems not found in textbooks. Be graceful when you do. That’s character.” 4. Leaders must be competent. “Underpromise and overprepare.” 5. Leaders must have courage. “It’s a lot easier to be a follower. It’s a lot easier to let someone else own the problem or make the decision. It’s a lot harder to stand up, speak up, and be accountable.” Kelly told the graduates about the message conveyed by a panel of Southwest employees who had served in the Iraq war. The soldiers described what great leadership looked like to them. Kelly recounted how none of the soldiers told tales about how smart their leaders were or what was on their leaders’ resumes. Their heroes were the ones who cared about them as human beings as well as soldiers. Their leaders worked them hard, disciplined them when necessary, and sent them into battle. “To be a great leader, you have to convince people you care about them. In turn, people will help you win great battles,” he said. Kelly also urged graduates to remember to “do the right thing.” He shared a story about a Southwest Airlines pilot who held a plane for a grieving grandfather. The grandfather was urgently trying to reach his grandson’s bedside. Southwest employees overheard the man frantically explaining to airport employees at the security checkpoint that his grandson was on life support and would be taken off shortly so that his organs could be donated. The flight he was trying to catch was the last one going to Denver that evening and he would surely miss it without their assistance. Although the airport employees would not allow the grandfather to skip ahead in the line, he was shocked to find the pilot there to meet him and offer his condolences. The pilot told him, “They can’t go anywhere without me and I wasn’t going anywhere without you. We’ll get you there.” To read the transcript and see a video of this and other McCombs School of Business commencement addresses, please visit the McCombs Today website: http:// mccombstoday.org//2011/05/stop-complaining- and-other-lessons-for-success.

Letter from the Former Chair Urton Anderson

As Accounting Department Chair, I was charged with helping to ensure that the accounting program retained its accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The University of Texas McCombs School of Business is one of the only 5% of business schools worldwide that has achieved AACSB accreditation. Of these 607 schools, only 175 accounting programs are accredited.

To maintain accreditation, a thorough review is conducted every five years. A school must meet 21 strict quality standardsset forth by AACSB. These include ensuring faculty meet certain criteria, that resources are managed strategically, and that specific learning goals in degree programs are met. A school must also show continuous improvement.

After a lengthy process, the accreditation of the business school and the accounting program were extended for another five years. The evaluation committee of visiting deans and scholars specifically highlighted our accounting program as one of the best that the McCombs School has to offer. I am thrilled that during my tenure as Department Chair, the Department of Accounting has maintained its sterling reputation in terms of its AACS B accreditation.

Lillian Mills has taken over as Department Chair. She has also been named the Wilton E. and Catherine A. Thomas Professor of Accounting. A member of the McCombs faculty since 2006, Professor Mills is an accomplished scholar and an excellent teacher. I am confident that she will prove to be a very worthy successor. I am looking forward to seeing the Department of Accounting continue to grow and thrive under her leadership.

Fred Phillips Honored with Prestigious National Teaching Award

Fred Phillips, Ph.D. ’96, was honored with Canada’s annual 3M National Teaching Fellowship in February. Sponsored by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and 3M Canada, the fellowship honors Canadian university professors who exhibit “the highest ideals of teaching excellence and scholarship,” according to the award’s website.

Only 10 professors receive the fellowship each year. Phillips, a former University of Texas accounting professor who now teaches at the University of Saskatchewan, is the eighth professor from the University of Saskatchewan since the award’s inception 26 years ago. He received the University of Saskatchewan’s highest teaching honor, the Master Teacher Award, in 2006.

It is small wonder Phillips earned this recognition. In his own explanation of his teaching on the University of Sasketchewan website, he explains how students arrive with the idea that accounting is “boring, abstract, and cold-hearted” and that “helping students discover that these views are misperceptions is my main teaching challenge, and one of my greatest joys.”

To that end, he has worked hard on his delivery and presentation, conveying his excitement about the accounting occupation. He has drawn on lessons from past teachers, including his martial arts teacher, and constantly keeps the perspective of students in the forefront of his mind.
