Authentic Leadership: A Coach-Approach to Inspired Public Health Leadership

Authentic Leadership is a 6-month distance based program that takes place over the phone and through an online discussion board. It begins twice yearly in January and July.

This program builds emotional intelligence and develops authentic leadership capacity by focusing on strengths, values-based decision-making and goal-setting, authenticity, vulnerability, courage/risk-taking, and self-care/happiness as they relate to leadership.

Depending on individual participant needs, each individual helps to design the program to create an ideal environment for personalized leadership development. Participants have included students, emerging leaders, mid- and senior-level professionals, and professionals transitioning into retirement.
