You’re It: Crisis, Change, and How to Lead When it Matters Most

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. A pandemic. An active shooter. A media controversy. A cyber-attack. A product failure. In You’re It, the faculty of the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative take you to the front lines of some of the toughest decisions facing leaders–from how to mobilize during a hurricane or in the aftermath of a bombing to halting a raging wildfire. They also take readers through the tough decision-making inside the world’s largest companies, hottest startups, and leading nonprofits.

The authors introduce readers 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 reading for anyone preparing to lead an adaptive team through crisis and change.
