This webinar will introduce the landscape of healthy leadership along with a set of sustainable potentiating practices that will enable individuals serving leader roles to cultivate a generative community of practice. Potentiating, for clarification, is any action taken by individuals in leader roles that affectively causes something, or the relationship itself, to become potent—or, if you will: creative, strong, capable, powerful, effective, empowered…and healthy.

Presenters will first lay down the philosophical and theoretical frameworks that undergird this approach. Building on the notion of the leader as a potentiator, the webinar will explore five potentiating questions and a set of practices that guide the practice of healthy leadership.

Participants will leave the webinar with new perspectives, strategies, and tools to support their healthy leadership practices.
