3323.0 Generational Leadership

Monday, October 27, 2008: 2:30 PM
The Health Administration Section is sponsoring a special 100th anniversary session to address a critical challenge to public health workforce development: Developing the Next Generation of Public Health Leaders. National reports from leading public health organizations predict a rapid loss of senior leaders during the next 5-10 years as they take retirement or leave for second careers. Organizations will need to attract and develop younger leaders at a more rapid pace. Research has shown that the leaders emerging from the Gen-X and Gen-Y generations have different attitudes and perceptions about work and organizations. Is your organization ready to address this challenge? This session will provide a useful overview of research on emerging leaders, demonstrate how national, state and regional programs are preparing emerging leaders, address successful models for coaching and mentoring programs, and describe how the APHA Student Assembly is engaged in leadership development. A panel of expert consultants and trainers will share best practices to create organizational environments to help support emerging leaders. Time is allocated for audience questions and discussion.
Session Objectives: 1. Explore the challenges of defining and identifying emerging leaders in public health and related organizations, with emphasis on non-profits and the public sector 2. Increase the understanding of the differences in perceptions of Baby Boomers, GenX and GenY leaders towards work, the workplace, and leadership 3. Understand the role of coaching and mentoring in developing emerging leaders 4. Identify at least three ways participants can help develop others as leaders.
