Customized Workforce Development

The National Maternal and Child Health Workforce Center provides team-tailored skills development and assistance to Title V agencies tackling tough health transformation challenges.

In the six years since our founding, we have partnered with 45 states and jurisdictions to tackle issues such as:

  • Infant mortality
  • Developmental screening
  • Bullying
  • Family engagement
  • Transitioning to population health services

Partnership Opportunities

Engagements include an 8-month coach-supported cohort experience, customized short-term partnerships, and an internship program that matches agencies with students interested in Title V experience.

Coaches work with teams in a relaxed and collaborative environment to develop workforce skills and tools that apply directly to the healthcare challenge. Training materials are accessible and responsive to professional priorities.

Mini-Course in Resiliency and Adaptive Leadership

March 2020

Join Jeannine Herrick, Senior Staff at the MCH WDC, to learn more about how to lead in challenging times.

The mini-course is a short recording in nine parts. Each section focuses on a different leadership tool to help you think through your leadership work right now:

    1. Introduction
    2. Adaptive Leadership
    3. Sphere of Influence
    4. Trust and Creative Problem-solving
    5. Stepping Forward as a Leader
    6. Thinking Big – Assuming an Adaptive Mindset
    7. Thinking Through Change as a Practice
    8. Phasing your change
    9. 10 Tips for Leaders of Transformative Efforts During the Current Crisis

Take time to support yourself as a leader. Give yourself time to think and plan. Adapting under stress is hard; the sense of crisis and urgency can push us into missing options, making rash decisions, limiting ourselves, and getting caught up in technical thinking that misses the big picture opportunities.

This mini-course will help.
