For nurses and healthcare professionals trained to deliver health care to those in need, the choice of leadership training opens the door to new career opportunities. For those seeking leadership training in public health and nursing the good news is that when these important skills are based on the Female brain, they are transferable to any state, country, or culture.
"Our new model of leadership—based on 10 traits found in the Female brain—changes the chemistry of leadership from aggressive and competitive to nurturing, collaborative, and diplomatic," says Alexia Parks, 10TRAITS ™ Leadership Institute founder and CEO.
To guide nurses into leadership roles in businesses, communities, and public health care management across the country and globally, 10TRAITS ™ Leadership Institute is launching its 10TRAITS Public Health and Nursing Leadership online training beginning July 18.
