Pathways to Leadership

For the first time, the ANTHC Pathways to Leadership program is open to Alaska Tribal Health System employees.

Pathways participants are at all levels of their career, with or without formal education, seeking to improve their leadership knowledge and skills. Pathways is a nine-month program, starting with the kickoff in September and ending with the graduation in May. Participants attend monthly core trainings, meet with a mentor, complete a job shadow, attend an executive meeting, complete community service hours, attend a networking event, attend ANTHC Book Club discussions, and propose a group project to the Executive team. At the end of the program, after successfully passing an exam, participants receive a Certified Supervisor Certification, and graduates may choose to receive continuing education (CE) credits or undergraduate credits from Alaska Pacific University.

The core trainings introduce participants to essential tools and principles to establish a working knowledge of management practices. Experienced subject matter experts/leaders lead discussions on important topics, issues, and provide their advice and recommendations. While reading Do Alaska Native People Get Free Medical Care? participants read and discuss Alaska Native issues, history, and culture. Studies show public speaking is a critical leadership skill and is a great way to improve self-confidence. Participants practice impromptu speaking and deliver speeches throughout the program year. To provide a foundation for management knowledge, skills, and abilities participants read and discuss the Certified Supervisor textbook to prepare for their online exam to receive​ a Certified Supervisor Certification.

Each year the program core trainings are customized to ensure maximum interest and growth, the core trainings topics are determined from the responses received​ during the application and interview process.

Program year: September 2021  to May 2022
