Public Health Leadership Programme

The Public Health Leadership Programme (PHLP) is designed for people working in public health.

Be inspired and focused to make a difference in public health, and have the skills and courage to act.

The programme is funded by the Ministry of Health. It has been developed by Catapult (leadership and organisational performance specialists) and Quigley and Watts (public health specialists) following extensive consultation with the sector.

The PHLP builds leadership competencies identified as important for leaders in public health.

The PHLP allows participants to discover their leadership potential and equip them with practical and tested leadership tools and resources. The programme generates immediate and lasting benefits for participants, those they lead, and for public health.

Each programme has 6 days spread over several months. In 2018 one programme will be offered in Wellington and one in Auckland.

Here’s what participants said about the programme:

‘The course has been a breath of fresh air and it’s been a privilege to be engaged with many new people, paradigms and possibilities for public health.’

‘This course shifted my mindset to realise that, with the right support and learning, anyone can be a leader.’

‘Through expert facilitation and provision of relevant resources, the course has provided me with knowledge, tools and tactics that I can easily apply in an organisational setting. I have been able to experiment with course learnings in the workplace in real time and talk these experiments through with my action learning trio. I would highly recommend the course to anybody interested in developing as a leader in public health.’
