Leonard J. Marcus, Eric J. McNulty, Joseph M. Henderson, Barry C. Dorn, David Gergen – foreword – You’re It

Become a better crisis leader while equipping yourself with the tools for every day transformative leadership.

Today, in an instant, leaders can find themselves face-to-face with crisis. An active shooter. A media controversy. A data breach. In You’re It, the faculty of the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative at Harvard University takes you to the front lines of some of the toughest decisions facing our nation’s leaders – from how to mobilize during a hurricane or in the aftermath of a bombing to halting a raging pandemic. They also take listeners through the tough decision-making inside the world’s largest companies, hottest startups, and leading nonprofits.

The authors introduce listeners to the pragmatic model and methods of Meta-Leadership. They show you how to understand what is happening during a moment of crisis and change, what to do about it, and how to hone these skills to lead high-performing teams. Then, when crisis hits, you can pivot to be the leader people follow when it matters most.

A book for turbulent times, You’re It is essential listening for anyone preparing to lead an adaptive team through crisis and change.

If you have graduated from NPLI, the book is a great refresher of the concepts and framework for meta leadership and the skills required to lead in crisis and in a complex situations. If you havent, welcome to an introduction to meta leadership skills reenforced by actual stories of success and failures in crisis. I am glad that the real world contemporary crises and events have been weaved into the book to give NPLI graduates more recent examples to keep the conversation fresh and relevant. Tag, Youre It now NPLI. Thanks for continuing to teach and preach crisis leadership.
