Coffee Talk 4: Managing Change
Presenter: Brenda Jones, DHSc, RN, MSN, WHNP-BC, Deputy Director, Office of Women's Health, Illinois Department of Public Health
Managing change is not an easy task-especially some of the "moving the needle" efforts currently gearing up in the Title V programs! Successful collective impact efforts require a few key conditions-among them a united plan among the many individuals and organizations that impact the issue as well as collaboration among the key players. While the effects of collective impact are often outside the control of a single individual or organization, achieving change within those systems is dependent on great leadership at both the individual and organizational levels. This presentation will share a brief overview of the leadership skills and capacities needed to lead collective impact initiatives, followed by Brenda's personal experience in creating collective action among key players during a major statewide MCH reorganization.
Video Release: Oct. 7
Twitter Chat: Oct. 28 2-3 p.m. EST
