This session was recorded at NHPCO’s 27th Management & Leadership Conference in National Harbor, MD.
A social transformation is taking place in healthcare organizations worldwide. Leadership practices are moving from authoritarian to collaborative, from fear-based to strengths-based, and from talking at people to inquiry and dialogue “with” people. Drawing on years of experience and research, Diana Whitney defines leadership as a powerful relational process and offers five strategies for extraordinary performance:
The Wisdom of Inquiry: Asking positively powerful questions
The Art of Illumination: Bringing out the best of people and situations
The Genius of Inclusion: Engaging with people to co-create the future
The Courage of Inspiration: Unleashing the creative spirit
The Path of Integrity: Making choices for the good of the whole


  • Identify five strategies for building a thriving organization
  • Ask positively powerful questions
  • Conduct “strengths spotting” interviews and reflections
