LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM FOR SELECTED AFRICAN HEALTH SPECIALISTS (WASHINGTON, D.C., SEPTEMBER 12-24, 1965). APPLICATIONS OF HUMAN RELATIONS LABORATORY TRAINING, NUMBER 3, 1966.
MIAL, H. CURTIS
THE AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN TRAINING AFRICAN HEALTH SPECIALISTS IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT LEADERSHIP TRAINING HAS BEEN GIVEN LITTLE ATTENTION. SUCH TRAINING SHOULD HELP THEM OVERCOME DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND TRADITIONAL CUSTOMS, DEFINE ORGANIZATIONAL ROLE, RESOLVE STATUS DIFFERENCES, AND GET COOPERATIVE EFFORT FROM ORGANIZATION MEMBERS. A 10-DAY RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM WAS SET UP AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND FOR 16 HEALTH SPECIALISTS FROM ETHIOPIA, SUDAN, LIBERIA, SIERRA LEONE, AND THE CONGO. THIS PRELIMINARY REPORT FOCUSES ON STAFF AND PARTICIPANT EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM. OUTCOMES OF THE TRAINING WERE EXAMINED THROUGH (1) PARTICIPANTS' EVALUATION OF THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE PROGRAM (SUCH AS SELECTION OF PARTICIPANTS, ORIENTATION, TIMING, AND LABORATORY DESIGN), (2) PROBLEM ANALYSIS MATERIAL (T-GROUP PROBLEMS AND BACK-HOME PROBLEMS) FROM A GROUP STUDYING FORCE FIELD ANALYSIS, (3) THE FOUR TRAINING STAFF MEMBERS' SUBJECTIVE OPINIONS ON THE CHANGES TAKING PLACE IN THE T GROUPS, AND (4) A 1-DAY RECORDED STAFF EVALUATION SESSION. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT FOLLOWUP AND SUPPORT OF PARTICIPANTS BE INCLUDED AFTER LABORATORY TRAINING. FURTHER EVALUATION WAS TO RESULT FROM DATA OBTAINED AFTER PARTICIPANTS WERE HOME FOR SOME MONTHS. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM NATIONAL TRAINING LABORATORIES, 1201 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, FOR $1.50. (EB)
