Health Leadership Development

The Health Leadership Development (HLD) is a program developed in partnership between the Hanley Center and the Institute for Civic Leadership (ICL) to offer a national-caliber program aimed at providing emerging and evolving leaders with the skills, knowledge, confidence and relationships they need to be effective leaders in Maine’s increasingly complex, competitive and demanding healthcare environment. Thirty-two emerging and evolving healthcare leaders from across Maine were selected for the inaugural class that assembled in the fall of 2007 for a 15-day, multi-month program that took take place in central Maine. Participants develop a wide range of core leadership competencies and build their knowledge of key issues, trends and public policy through case studies, speakers and readings. Participants apply to Hanley for selection into the program in the spring of each year.
