NC EMERGING LEADERS PROGRAM

Click here for the nomination form

The evolution of health care from individualistic to requiring community-based approaches calls for a general emphasis on leadership among professionals in public health. Traditionally driven by a sense of purpose to do good in community and high levels of compassion, leaders in public health understand systemic issues and lead change, and are further better suited to identify how to address the most persisting population health challenges in the community.  To that effect, the NCPHA Emerging Leaders Program aims to provide emerging leaders in public health with skills and knowledge to become even more effective in their work through successfully leading teams through change and the ability to communicate with a diverse group of stakeholders as well as understand financial concepts as these relate to public health and the complex landscape of health care.

Leadership development starts however with the individual. Successful leaders know their value lies not only in managing teams and running organizations, but also in how they inspire and motivate others, set purposeful goals, execute strategic visions and create cultures of excellence. With the individual perspective of leadership as the core for effective leadership, learning about self and leadership is a crucial point of departure for what we refer to as the leadership journey. With increased awareness of self, individuals will develop the ability to challenge current perceptions and the values that shape it and further understanding their individual purpose as a leader is. As research shows, self-awareness is crucial as a sustainable platform for effective leadership.

The NCPHA Emerging Leaders Program is a year-long, leadership development program that provides participants the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of themselves as leader and learner.   Through interactive sessions, applied-learning and reflection, participants improve their self-awareness, learn how to lead teams, communicate with others, and how they view and engage with others.  

The NCPHA Emerging Leaders Program aims to provide emerging leaders in public health with skills and knowledge to become even more effective in their work through successfully leading teams through change and the ability to communicate with a diverse group of stakeholders as well as understand financial concepts as these relate to public health and the complex landscape of health care.

Reflections from participants of this year's class -  

"The NCPHA Emerging Leaders program has given me the opportunity to more fully develop and sharpen my leadership skills which has been extremely beneficial for my leadership role within NCPHA as well as my day to day work with the Public Health Accreditation Board."
Brittan Williams, MPH, CHES | Accreditation Specialist
Public Health Accreditation Board

"This program has really helped me to understand my communication style, strengths, and value that I bring to a team.  Without this knowledge, I couldn’t effectively work with our partners that may have polar opposite methods of communication.   We are in the business of helping to improve public health and we cannot do that without effective leadership and collaboration among divergent stakeholders."
Fred "Trey" Wright, MA, MPH
Public Health Educator II
