Eric McNulty's work centers on the challenges of leading in high stakes, high pressure situations. He teaches Leadership as well as Negotiation and Conflict Resolution to MPH students at the Harvard Chan School. He also teaches in numerous executive education programs at Harvard and elsewhere. He is co-author of the books, You're It: Crisis, Change, and How to Lead When it Matters Most (Public Affairs, 2019) and the second edition of Renegotiating Health Care: Resolving Conflict to Build Collaboration (Jossey-Bass, 2011). He is co-author of numerous book chapters and academic papers. He is principle author of the NPLI's case studies on leadership decision making in the Boston Marathon bombing response, innovation in the response to Hurricane Sandy, and the professional-political interface in the response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Eric has an interest in complex "wicked problems" and the systemic thinking necessary to grapple with them. He has looked at the overlapping challenges of climate change, rapid urbanization, aging populations, and increasing interconnectivity.
