Annotation

Leadership development is an important topic in any profession and maternal and child health is no exception. In fact, in a recent survey nearly 60 percent of state Maternal and Child Health and Children with Special Health Care Needs program directors identified leadership skill development as a top three training need for their staff members. Given the aging work force and the potential for significant numbers of retirements over the next few years, thoughtful preparation of junior level staff to assure they are ready to assume leadership roles in the future is critical to the continued success of Title V programs.

This bundle consists of 12 courses covering community partnerships, succession planning, diversity leadership, advocacy, strategic planning and systems approaches, collaboration, and advanced leadership and practice.
