Leadership and Healing: What’s The Connection?

About the Workshop

In Robert Greenleaf's essay, “The Servant as Leader,” he articulated a philosophy of leadership quite different from the many “great man/woman” models of leading. One aspect of this philosophy was the notion of “healing.” Even before Covid, news reports were rife with stories of struggles and tensions that many people were facing.... much contributed to by the organization(s) they work in. What does helping people and (by extension) organizations to “heal” have to do with effective leadership? What is the role of a leader in addressing the “daily paper cuts” of organizational life with their associates, themselves, and the overall integrity of their organization?

This workshop will help participants:

  • Identify sources of stressors and concerns
  • Identify strategies in addressing stressors and concerns
  • Identify and list specific practices that can be developed and used to enhance and strengthen individual and organizational resilience
