NACHC’s leadership subscription service is a new offer for 2023, designed to provide a consistent and spaced leadership development opportunity across a full calendar year to all health center, primary care association, health center-controlled network, and partner agency staff to support personal and organizational growth, development, and sustainability.
Intended audience: All staff, with a focus on those new to or aspiring to a leadership/management role in a health center or health center supporting organization.
Program Approach: Bi-monthly Zoom sessions (six session in the 2023 calendar year) supported by an online learning community for group discussion, resource sharing, and conversation. Zoom sessions are designed to be highly engaging and experiential. Participants can expect to be involved in session chats, breakout discussions, and individual reflection activities throughout the 90 minutes.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to…
Identify and build skills in individual well-being, personal and professional relationships, and leadership effectiveness.
Understand the key principles of SOAR, “Success through Observer – Action – Results”
Leverage the collective experiences of the cohort to enhance personal learning and application.
Based on the book, Language and the Pursuit of Leadership Excellence: How Extraordinary Leaders Build Relationships, Shape Culture and Drive Breakthrough Results by Chalmers Brothers and Vinay Kumar, participants will be guided on a journey of self-discovery to use the power of language and conversations as primary tools in addressing concerns and achieving desired results, at work or in personal life. Leveraging the shared experiences of colleagues, participants will build the conversational, relational, and emotional competencies that leaders at all levels of an organization can employ to improve workplace relationships, shape culture, and create breakthrough results. See session descriptions below for more detail.
NACHC’s inaugural series, facilitated by partners at CEEK LLC, is loosely based upon The SOAR Program, co-created by Chalmers and Vinay Kumar. Standing for Success through Observer – Action – Results, this learning program introduces key frameworks, ways of understanding, tools and distinctions from their book into digestible segments participants can then apply to their daily personal and professional lives.
During the months that a live faculty led session does not take place, a facilitated discussion will be held in the online learning community to further enhance cohort engagement and application of the lessons learned in the live events.
