 Duke LEAD provides custom designed leadership and skills development programs for departments, divisions, teams, centers, institutions based upon your needs. The Duke-Johnson and Johnson program package is an example.


LEAD Silver Package Targeted Coaching and Leadership Development Program for Advanced Nurse Practitioners.

The Duke LEAD director partnered with the administrators in the Duke-Johnson and Johnson program to offer leadership development seminar-workshops and customized leadership coaching for their fellows.

LEAD believes the essence of leadership is instilling in others the confidence to follow the leader’s or manager’s vision and direction. The ability to integrate information, communicate meaningfully and build internal and external relationships distinguishes the exceptional leader. Fellows in the Duke-Johnson & Johnson Leadership Nursing Program have the recommended option of working with Dr. Holder through a LEAD coaching approach.

Areas of focus can include, but not be limited to – effective communication, employee-problem management, performance feedback, development of the leader in a specific/targeted area, gaining insight into team dynamics and/or greater astuteness to diversity and cultural climate concerns.
