Who we are - Leadership


To date, Tuckamore has adopted a meta-leadership style. This is an overarching framework for strategically linking the efforts of different units to “provide guidance, direction, and momentum across organizational lines that develop into a shared course of action and commonality of purpose among people that are doing what may appear to be very different work.” (Marcus et al., 2006).

Meta-leadership is different from leadership. Leadership is the recognized span of authority that a person has in his or her formal role. Meta-leadership is leadership employing influence without and beyond formal authority. That is, meta-leaders seek to influence and activate change beyond established lines of standard decision-making and control, therefore driven by a purpose broader than that prescribed by their formal roles.
