Class description

Authentic Leadership Development for Health and Safety Professionals is a series of courses designed to help leaders committed to advancing health and safety can learn how best to navigate today’s evolving health and safety landscape.  The series is comprised of three (3) leadership development courses that accelerate professional growth based on extensive body of evidence-based research, which supports the models and methods used. The courses are designed to cultivate leadership  knowledge, skills, and capabilities important to the success of health and safety leaders and participants are provided experiential learning opportunities for increasing critical leadership skills. The series begins with discussions of foundational concepts, tools, and practices across all levels of professional development in the health and safety field, and then covers using those concepts, tools, and practices in an organization.

Accelerating Leadership Development for Health and Safety Professionals

Leadership development at all levels of professional experience can be accelerated by understanding what theories, capabilities, and motivation fosters leader and follower effectiveness.  Before you can engage in acquiring these new capabilities and skills, you first need to be in a position of being ready and willing to learn and develop. This course will provide insight into unlocking both the motivation and abilities related to launching your leadership development. Participants will complete an online self-survey to explore their motivation and ability to understand how to activate positive leadership capabilities, which we refer to as leader developmental readiness.

This course serves as the key required course for individuals enrolling in the joint UW DEOHS CE/OHWC Total Worker Health Certificate Program. Individuals not seeking the TWH Certificate may enroll and attend the 4-day course as a standalone.
