Guide for Training Community Leaders to Improve Leadership and Management Practices
To be better leaders, we must be better people, take actions that bring us closer to our communities, and use the best management tools and strategies available. The Guide for Training Community Leaders to Improve Leadership and Management Practices is designed for individuals, teams of managers, or institutions from the public health sector and other sectors of civil society that work at the community level. This guide can be used as supporting material in the implementation of community-based programs and projects to strengthen the local management of municipalities and the improvement of health, education, and other social welfare services. The guide is divided into two parts. The first section is geared to facilitators; it provides ideas to guide the training process, techniques, group dynamics, and key points. The second part, divided into five units, provides session guides for facilitators to conduct each of the five workshops. Each unit provides detailed guidance on time management, facilitation techniques, materials, topics, and evaluation. Annexes at the end of each unit contain materials for workshop participants, including readings and exercises distributed during the workshops.
