NEPHTC is happy to share this new public health leadership series from our partners at the University of New England’s Center for Excellence in Public Health! This informative and engaging leadership series explores the relationship between organizational culture and the ability of an organization to adapt and respond to external and internal challenges. The four part self-paced virtual series introduces participants to what culture means in the health profession settings, culture diagnosis, values based and resilient leadership, and makes a case for integrating kindness and appreciation into culture.
