The Public Health Leadership Programme (PHLP)is
designed for people working in public health. The programme is
funded by the Ministry of Health and has been developed following
extensive consultation with the sector. PHLP builds leadership
competencies identified as important for leaders in public health.
The programme has been developed by Catapult (leadership and
organisational performance specialists) and Quigley and Watts
(public health specialists).
PHLP allows participants to discover their leadership potential
and equips 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 six days spread over several months. In 2020
one programme will be offered in Wellington and one in Auckland and
(hopefully one in Dunedin).
Applications for the 2020 Public Health Leadership Programme
(PHLP) are now open.

Programme 1 (Wellington): 17 - 18 June, 19- 20 August, 21 - 22

exceeded my expectations and raised my awareness to thinking about
opportunities and priorities not only in my current role but also
with regards to my organisation and the programmes we deliver as
well as opportunities for my team and what actions we can take to
make improvements in our sector".
"Learning more about my leadership style and how it affects
others around me, which enables me to be more conscious of how to
talk to others, plus gaining a better knowledge that leadership
comes in many faucets, learning that it's not just managing a group
of people but leading change, mobilising and encouraging vision and
