GHLI leadership development programs center on evidence-based solutions that can be scaled up, data-based decision-making, leadership that enhances individual and group capacity, and an applied learning experience.
Strategic Problem Solving
In GHLI leadership development programs, participants are taught to define problems, set objectives, and design evidence-based strategies. GHLI program participants also learn to build capacity and systems to support data-driven decision-making and to use key indicators that guide and evaluate performance.
Relational Framework for Leadership
GHLI focuses on a relational framework for leadership, understanding it as a dynamic role within a group. Program participants discuss the relationship between leaders and followers, how to manage across groups, and how to resolve conflict in organizations.
Scale Up and Replication
GHLI developed a framework for scale up and replication which defines the criteria needed to sustain successful health interventions. The AIDED approach proposes five components essential to the process of scale up: assessing the landscape, refining the innovation, developing support and engaging the community, and spreading the innovation.

Breakthroughs in medicine and public health often require decades and significant resources to successfully spread in other settings. To better understand this challenge, GHLI has looked outside traditional diffusion pathways and studied a biological model of successful spread. Viruses spread with maximum efficiency and may provide a model for scale up and replication in health care systems around the globe.
