An Interview with Natalie S. Burke on Facilitative Leadership

Press Room



Natalie and I first met about seven years ago when our organizations were working in Port Towns, Maryland to help build community leaders’ capacity to improve health outcomes by addressing the social determinants of health. Today she is President and CEO of CommonHealth ACTION. Natalie is known for building and sustaining successful interactions with leaders and innovators across sectors. As an advisor to corporate leaders and communities aspiring to change, Natalie helps develop solutions, plans, and common language necessary to succeed in making the world a better, healthier place. As a strategist, she focuses on the connective tissue that forms organizations and how to strengthen it. And as a facilitator, she cultivates spaces for exchanging ideas that spark action.

We recently re-connected to reflect on the progress we’ve made and what it means to be a leader.
