Building Leadership for Health
   Building Leadership for Health        


This introduction gives some background information and readings but naturally you will need to select from the materials to ensure your course is suitable for the audience. As in this case where I was teaching a group of health educators and health leaders in Oman. Local health leaders gave examples of their approach to leadership and groups then discussed their personal experiences using the lectures as a framework to reflect and learn from one another.
