The Paso del Norte Health Foundation Board introduced the 2017-18 REALIZE Executive Leadership recipients at the annual launch reception on Wednesday.
The event kicks off an intensive nine-month REALIZE leadership development program where twenty-one participants will learn to harness their leadership qualities. Each of the participants represent a notable health and/or scholarly institutions. Prior participants and PdNHF board members will speak on their experiences, expectations and the importance of leadership for improved health.
PdNHF officials share, “The goal of the REALIZE experience is to inspire already effective leaders to become transformational leaders for the benefit of the region’s health…with strengthened leadership in place, regional organizations and individuals are better positioned to promote health and prevent disease.”
Key REALIZE interventions include a customized 360 and other leadership assessments, executive coaching around personalized leadership goals, two transformational off-site experiences, at least six one-day cohort connect learning sessions, networking opportunities, assessments to measure individual growth, and more.
“The Health Foundation is committed to improving the U.S./Mexico border community through leadership in health-related advocacy, initiatives and education,” Health Foundation officials added.
