This Leadership Forward episode, the third in a series that explores the Consortium’s Framework for Public Sector Leadership, focuses on how the framework’s “Setting and Managing Strategic Direction” domain applies in practice. The core competencies in this framework include vision and purpose, communication, planning for action, and balancing political and strategic agility. LaQuandra Nesbitt, MD, MPH, director of the District of Columbia Department of Health, and Suzanne Bierman, JD, MPH, administrator of the Division of Health Care Financing and Policy for the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, share how they have remained focused on a long-term vision throughout COVID-19 and used strategic communications to advance that vision.

The conversation is moderated by Erica Brown, program officer at the Milbank Memorial Fund.
