Leadership and Systems Thinking Skills

This series, offered through a partnership between the Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center and ECHO Colorado, aims to support experienced coalition leaders by addressing the complex issues that occur during the process of managing coalitions.

Coalition leaders can improve the effectiveness of their coalitions by strengthening relationships among diverse stakeholders and creating an environment sustained by a shared set of values. Over the course of five, free live sessions, coalition leaders will learn and share relevant strategies with experts and their peers.
