Meta-Leadership Overview

Dr. Lenny Marcus provides you an overview of Meta-Leadership, a framework and practice developed by faculty of the NPLI resulting from extensive research and observations.
META-LEADERS think and perform differently. By taking a holistic view, they intentionally link and leverage the efforts of the whole community to galvanize a valuable connectivity that achieves unity of purpose and effort.



Dimension: The Person

Who are you, why do you lead, and how do you get people to follow you? Eric McNulty, Director of Research and Instructor with the NPLI, will give you an overview to understanding the person dimension of a meta-leader in this video.
