This 9 week online course is designed to help local health departments and their partners answer these questions and tackle the complex challenges facing the field of public health. Public health leaders are exploring innovative partnerships and identifying new ways of operating within and influencing the economic and social conditions of our health system. Such work demands a new kind of leadership to mobilize people outside of our typical spheres of influence and authority to tackle tough challenges and thrive. Check out this 5-minute video for a sense of what Adaptive Leadership means in the context of public health.
Why Adaptive Leadership?
Local health departments and their partners are uniquely positioned to drive the systemic, multi-stakeholder change needed to improve our nation's health. Yet, the status quo is comfortable and tempting. Developed by Drs. Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky at the Harvard Kennedy School, Adaptive Leadership is a practical framework for leading consequential change in the midst of significant market and sociopolitical transformation.
