Leadership Training for Public Health Workers in North Carolina: An Evaluative Study.
Part of a larger professional continuing education effort (See AC 008 840), this series of ten leadership training sessions for public health workers was evaluted for overall effectiveness. All participants (201 local and 38 State Board of Health personnel) were surveyed by questionnaire and evaluation scale. Relationships were sought between evaluations by participants and selected personal characteristics. Only four of these variables--sex, formal education, occupation or discipline, and location of sessions--were significantly associated with the stated value of the training sessions. Age differences, number of friends, affiliation (state or local), years of experience in public health, and previous knowledge of leadership methods and techniques all proved insignificant. Recommendations were offered on trainee selection, group size, preparation of group leaders, followup training, and other aspects of program planning. (The document includes the questionnaire, a rating scale, and nine other appendixes.) (LY)
