Authentic Leadership: A Coach-Approach to Inspired Public Health Leadership
Authentic Leadership is a 6-month distance based program that takes place over the phone and through an online discussion board. It begins twice yearly in January and July.
This program builds emotional intelligence and develops authentic leadership capacity by focusing on strengths, values-based decision-making and goal-setting, authenticity, vulnerability, courage/risk-taking, and self-care/happiness as they relate to leadership.
Depending on individual participant needs, each individual helps to design the program to create an ideal environment for personalized leadership development. Participants have included students, emerging leaders, mid- and senior-level professionals, and professionals transitioning into retirement. Click here for more information.
The program fee is $2400/person and is due to the MCH Program prior to the start of the program.
On average, a person will spend between 3-7 hours/month working on this program. However, this is not ‘work’ that is designed to add stress to an already overburdened workload. The work is designed to support your work efforts so that you feel more leader-like, satisfied, engaged, content, hopeful, inspired, rejuvenated, alive, and certain of your ability to improve public health.
Interested individuals should complete a short application and submit a 1-2 page Letter of Interest.
