#6: Sahana Chattopadhyay — Facilitating Emergence & Generative Communities

Episode description and synopsis


Holding an integrated lens and philosophy for practice, while practicing in very specific and nuanced ways is a skill of ‘dexterity’ I admire greatly.


It’s one that I admire in Sahana Chattopadhyay, and one that we explore in detail in our conversation here. Exploring a radical shift in the way we view organisations, communities and the role of leaders within them.


We explore what might happen if we saw organisations as communities, the soft skills of facilitating emergence, befriending uncertainty, generative dialogue and self-practices for resilience. Join us for a supportive and enlivening conversation.

Guest bio


Sahana is a writer, sense-maker and facilitator exploring emergence & thrivability in a complex, ambiguous world. As Founder and Facilitator at Proteeti, she supports teams and organisations to not only navigate but thrive in our complex world.


Her detailed articulation of the art of space-holding and facilitation is something I personally admire greatly. As something that is often reduced to sticky-notes, group-agreements and salt lamps, Sahana has a depth of understanding in the subtle and nuance threads of what it means to ‘facilitate.’
