Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Everyday Leadership website?

The Everyday Leadership website is an online repository of materials developed as part of I-TECH's Everyday Leadership Project and includes more than 130 curricular materials, 370 short video teaching clips, 21 longer video profiles in leadership, and 21 case studies developed by I-TECH to strengthen global health leadership and management practices.

How do I navigate Everyday Leadership?

This website is divided into two main sections: Videos and Curricula.

The Videos can be explored by people, countries (the two drop-down menus at the top of the page), or themes. Each video can be played in your web browser, embedded in other websites, or downloaded be registered users and saved for use in a class or other environments.

The Curricula section can be navigated by browsing training topics or themes, or by searching the site. This section contains individual documents that are organized into training modules as well as sample workshop agendas that can be reviewed.

How do I download the videos?

All the videos on this site can be downloaded in MP4 format. Every video page has a link labeled "Right-click to save this video to your computer (MP4 format)."

We encourage you to use these videos in trainings, as our experience has shown video to be a great way to bring the "real world" into a classroom setting. We have found that showing even a short clip during a training session triggers meaningful discussions and, ultimately, more powerful learning.

How was the video collection developed?

We conducted interviews with people working in global health settings in Ethiopia, India, Malawi, Namibia, and South Africa, in addition to filming in Seattle and San Francisco. Phase 2 of the Everyday Leadership video project will expand the geographic and linguistic range of available teaching clips and profiles in leadership by interviewing additional individuals in new countries and cultural settings.

Why did you develop the videos that are part of Everyday Leadership?

We believe that leadership skills, like those in management, can be learned. We also believe that leadership behaviors can exist at any level of an organization and should be nurtured and encouraged. We therefore interviewed not only people in formal leadership positions, but also informal leaders—those people who, regardless of rank, take responsibility and display courage and commitment in advancing the mission of an organization. These individuals have a valuable perspective to share, one that is rarely captured and even more rarely shared. We also noted the predominance of Western voices in the leadership literature and wanted to hear a more diverse set of voices and perspectives. We hope that these voices will inspire others to strengthen leadership and management practice in global health settings.

Who was Everyday Leadership developed for?

This collection was developed to support members of the I-TECH network and partners in government, academic institutions, and non-governmental organizations conducting in-service and pre-service training. Many of the materials are also suitable for self-study and self-paced learning.

Who can use these materials?

We welcome all global health professionals to browse through the site and use any of the materials in your programs. Please provide us with feedback on how the materials work in your setting. Please acknowledge the source material as you tailor it for new applications and audiences.

How do you suggest I use the Everyday Leadership videos?

Browse through the videos when you need personal inspiration. If you are supervising or coaching others, send them a teaching clip or profile in leadership link on a topic that might help them with a challenge, or create a list of videos that you think they should view before the next performance review period. Select clips to embed in presentations or slide shows, or view them from the website during your course or workshop. If you are creating self-study or e-learning modules, include video clips and interviews to enhance learning through reflection.

Can I download the training materials and adapt them for my use?

Yes. All the materials on the site can be downloaded. We encourage adaptation to ensure that the materials are relevant to your situation.

How can I add a video to my presentation?

Teaching clips and profiles in leadership from Everyday Leadership can be easily inserted into presentations. First, download the clip. If you are using PowerPoint, go to Insert, then Movie; find your file, and click on Choose. From here you can choose whether you want the movie to start when clicked or to begin automatically. If you are using Keynote, go to Insert, then Choose; find your file, and click on insert.
