Enhancing cultural competence to address healthcare disparities in Latino communities
Description
One strategy to eliminate healthcare disparities for Latinos is influencing the higher education curriculum to enhance the cultural competence of students in health professions. This helps prepare future healthcare providers to overcome cultural barriers known to contribute to Latino's healthcare underutilization, deferral, and low patient treatment compliance. This presentation describes the development and pilot testing of a culture immersion program in a rural Latino community as part of an NIH funded project. Faculty from a northeastern university and community leaders partnered to work collaboratively. Graduate students moved for a short time from their cities of residence to live with Latino families, visit healthcare organizations, and participate in community activities. Participants observed, learned, shared, and exchanged information focusing on what shapes Latinos health beliefs, practices, and help seeking preferences. Students could critically analyze their own biases, prejudices, stereotypes, and clinical uncertainties with regard to Latinos within the context of this population's ethnic reality. Pre and post questionnaires indicated personal and professional satisfaction through exposure to Latino language, family and social life, food and customs. Participants developed a deeper understanding of Latino cultural traits such as familism, simpatia, and collectivism, becoming acutely aware of personal and systemic barriers underlying healthcare disparities. The success of this pilot project was largely due to effective community-academic partnership and collaboration. This experiential learning will be presented within the context of relevant literature. References will be provided. Implications of cultural competency in the workforce to eliminate health disparities through health education and health promotion will be discussed.

Exploring Distance in Leader-Follower Relationships
Description
Leaders face new challenges as they cope with changes in culture, technology, and the workplace. This webinar examines the impact of distance—physical, interpersonal, and social—on our organizations, our governments, and our societies. It is now quite possible to develop followers and influence others halfway around the world, while it remains equally likely that the follower in the next cubicle may be oblivious to a leader's sphere of influence. Based on our recent book on the same topic, we will review some initial ideas about how distance is altering the study and practice of leadership. The webinar will address new research and theory that explores when and how leadership is transformed through space and time, and in what ways the notion of "distance" creates continuously evolving meanings for the leader-follower relationship.

First Relationships, Then Results: A New Paradigm for Leadership Development
Description
This webinar explores the idea that leaders can be rejuvenated and inspired and great collaborations sparked by the same thing – social capital. · After years of leading social-sector organizations in an environment where competition is more the norm than collaboration, many gifted leaders are near burnout, unable to maximize their individual or collective gifts. Since 2005, the Barr Fellowship has been changing that in Boston – through an investment in personal growth and connections among social change leaders. Recently profiled in the Foundation Review (and before that, in a Stanford Social Innovation Review Case study in May, 2012), the Barr Fellowship is proving to be a powerful force for transformation of individual leaders, their organizations, and their city.

Realizing the Collective Conscious - Multi-Sector Leadership Development for the Public’s Health
Description
Today's context for health leadership is complex, rapidly evolving, and calls for new approaches to the development of leaders for today and the future. “We need to train our leaders to be more collaborative, to be more inclusive, and to have greater integrity. It’s a whole different set of practices[1].” The Center for Health Leadership and Practice (CHLP) has an innovative approach to leadership development that brings together teams of leaders from multiple sectors that want to advance their leadership skills and achieve health equity in their community. CHLP trains multi-sectoral teams in an applied, team-based, and collaborative leadership development model. Using experiential learning, an applied health leadership project is the primary vehicle for leadership learning. The core curriculum is based on five competencies: Leadership Mastery; Ability to work effectively across sectors; Application of continuous quality improvement principles; Appropriate use of data for planning, assessment, monitoring and evaluation; and Commitment to a population health perspective. The work throughout the year is divided into four phases that each includes leadership themes: 1) inspiration; 2) ideation; 3) implementation and growing; and 4) sustaining and transition[2]. Team development is further enhanced and curriculum customized with a team coach. As fellows begin the program year they begin exploring and are challenged to examine their partners, stakeholders and networks. This theme is resurfaced at each phase of the program to examine the true diversity and voices needed to achieve population health improvement.

Strategic Planning for Networks
Description
Strategic planning. You know you should be doing more of it. But the way you normally do it requires lots of up-front time to do and lots of follow-up time to get buy-in. And frankly, you have trouble with the buy-in part. All that trouble, minimal follow-through. Great strategic planning processes are lightweight and participatory. This is nice-to-have for organizations, and it's critical for networks, where you don't have the benefit of hierarchy to influence its behavior. Networks will do what they do. In this Leadership Learning Community webinar, I describe how to do strategic planning for networks. I draw heavily from my experience leading the open strategic planning process for the Wikimedia movement, which drew over 1,000 participants and led to a movement-wide shift in focus on increasing reach and participation in developing countries. I share how you can leverage these types of processes for both your network and your organization
