Fostering a Healthy Program Team Culture

As a senior-level program leader, you must unite a team across multiple dimensions, including different subject areas, funding requirements, client expectations, and sites. Clear understanding and buy-in around a shared culture go a long way to ensure that each team member feels like they are part of a cohesive whole, while also honoring the unique aspects – assets and challenges – of each program and site.
This course is designed for leaders who oversee a portfolio of programs. Your grants, budgets, and outcomes may or may not intersect, but your ability to work together can make or break your shared ability to achieve impact for your clients and community.


  • Articulating an intentional, shared culture at the departmental (program) level
  • When to manage and when to lead


At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe elements of a healthy departmental or team culture.
  • Develop a process for defining or refining an intentional departmental or team culture.
  • Compare and contrast managing and leading.


This course is ideal for senior program managers, program directors, and VPs with oversight of a portfolio of programs or a large/complex program with multiple, diverse funding sources and supervisory responsibility for a larger team.
