Training our team members for leadership – whether on project teams or more formally with “L”eadership roles - can be challenging when tools and resources are needed. Fortunately, through members sharing best practices, guidelines, and webinars, ASHP has content already available! This podcast will describe how members of the Emerging Leaders SAG put together a “curriculum” for training team members in leadership roles by referencing ASHP resources.
