AMCHP landing page with additional webinars and resources

Annotation: In working to improve the lives of women, children and families, leadership is an essential role for maternal and child health (MCH) programs. Leaders must have a vision, take initiative, influence people, solve problems, and take responsibility in order to make things happen. And, whether or not they have a formal title, everyone is engaged in the process of leadership. Likewise, everyone can develop their leadership effectiveness. AMCHP’s efforts to strengthen the capacity of the MCH community to engage in the leadership process recognize that leadership development is a process, not an event. The Leading in Changing Times Series is an initiative launched by AMCHP as part of their larger efforts to support a diverse, effective and competent workforce in state and territorial MCH programs. The Leading in Changing Times Series is a year-long, three-part series of webinars blending principles of key leadership theory with real-world stories from senior-level MCH leaders. These 45 minutes leadership “conversations” are designed to share leadership ideas and inspiration through a 20 minute presentation and 25 minute discussion. The three webinars consist of: (1) Great Leaders are Great Decision-Makers: The Importance of Decisiveness; (2) Leading Change: The Challenge of Change; and (3) Leaders with a Vision: The Ability to See Beyond the Present.

Learning Objectives: 1. Great Leaders are Great Decision-Makers: The Importance of Decisiveness • Explore the elements of decision making in public health leadership theory. • Understand the benefits of having a defined approach to prioritizing among many concerns and issues. • Learn concrete strategies and examples that they can use to prioritize maternal and child health efforts in their state. 2.
