Now Enrolling for Winter 2022!

The events of 2020 and the prolonged COVID-19 response have altered our personal lives and job roles, changing the way we work more than any other crisis in our lifetime. Unprecedented change is the new normal and it will continue to be more important than ever for leaders at every level to rise to the occasion. We need to be nimble, adjust our thinking, innovate, adapt, quickly communicate, and move forward even as the ground seems to shift beneath our feet. For this reason, insight becomes critical to lead the way forward.

The Leading with Insight series is designed to support leadership at every level of an organization during this time of change and will help leaders discover the strengths, resources, and insights they need to meet the challenges ahead.

The three-part series includes nine, interactive virtual workshops focused on a new way of leadership in a post-COVID world. It includes Leader as Learner, Leader as Facilitator, and Leader as Creator.

Learning Objectives

Learners in this series will:

  • Consider the power of continuous learning, curiosity, and growth mindset as well as how to learn from others through listening deeply.
  • Review how leaders make work easier by building relationships and nurturing an environment of mutual trust, respect, psychological safety, and agility.
  • Explore the values that drive you as a leader, how to create alignment between your values and vision and those of your team, the importance of a compelling vision for the future that drives what we do today, and how to sustain that vision and shared sense of purpose during tumultuous times.

Public health professionals who manage teams, serve in management or leadership positions, or are ready to step into a leadership role. People new to public health, younger professionals, people of color, and other groups frequently underrepresented in leadership roles are strongly encouraged to register.


Live learning sessions will occur via Zoom every Monday (10:00 a.m. to noon Pacific) from January 24 to March 28, 2022 (skipping the week of February 21). Please note, the first session will begin at 9:30 a.m. Pacific to allow extra time for introductions.


The registration fee is $300 per person or $200 per person for groups of three or more from the same organization (limit 6).

Leading with Insight is designed with busy public health professionals in mind and is meant to be a bite-sized, highly interactive learning opportunity. Readings and other resources will be provided for those who want to go deeper into the topics covered, but there is no required homework or projects. Join the weekly live sessions to learn and grow with your colleagues from around the region.

Technical Requirements

This learning opportunity requires the following:

  • Please install the Zoom meeting client before the first session.
  • Webcam, speakers/headphones, and microphone are needed for the live sessions.
