Training Description:
“Great vision without great people is irrelevant.” – Jim Collins

In an environment where the stakes are high such as in public health, how leaders develop their teams makes all the difference in long-term success. Positive relationships between leaders, emerging leaders and team members can be transformational. The result is a team competent, confident, and optimistic about their potential and contribution to the vision and goals of an organization.  Thus, leaders who employ strategic human resource management contribute to this transformation.  Such practices can include but are not limited to strategic selection, appraisal, and development of team members.  This collaborative learning experience is designed for new and experienced leaders to reflect on and recharge their leadership development skills for the mutual benefit of their most valuable resources and the organization.
