Leading for the Long Term
Leading for the Long Term was the Virginia Health Care Foundation’s leadership development program for leaders from Virginia health care safety net organizations.
A seven-month program, Leading for the Long Term offered participants a variety of self-assessments, high level presentations, participatory sessions and opportunities for peer-to-peer exchange.
About the Program
Leading for the Long Term was a leadership development program, not a management training course. The program was designed to transform good managers into great leaders.
Learning occurred through a variety of self-assessments, engaging presentations, participatory sessions, and peer-to-peer exchange. Participants had the opportunity to learn from experts in the various curriculum topics and developed a range of skills critical to success as a leader. Individual leadership coaches were available for those who wanted to engage with them for help with a specific challenge or issue.
