Leadership Skills Development

A new online training series is designed to foster leadership and management skills in a small-group format. Created for child and maternal health professionals, the series' approach is broad enough to apply to many types of public health and social work professions. Each of the training modules covers a variety of leadership topics in various formats, including video mini-lecture, interactive group discussion, hands-on exercises, and a leadership development planning worksheet. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Qualities of a leader
  • The effect of gender on leadership
  • Developing a vision
  • Team building
  • Fostering professional development

The web-based Maternal and Child Health Leadership Skills Development Series is available on the Johns Hopkins Women's and Children's Health Policy Center website:
