The Program Manager will manage and implement programs for diverse clients with whom we work to map, make, manage, measure, and master change. This position requires interpersonal, analytical, organizational, and communication skills as well as the ability to exercise discretion, independent judgment, and political acumen.
IDEAL CANDIDATE: You hit the ground running and are a skilled team player who is comfortable in many roles from management, to support, to project lead. You thrive on establishing strong relationships with people and recognize that change for individuals and organizations is rarely a linear process. As such, you are able to read and react to real-time situations, assess when people are confused, resistant, or otherwise getting “stuck,” and you take action necessary to get them moving in the right direction. You enjoy training others and helping them to experience perspective transformation—knowing, thinking, and believing something different and then deciding, behaving, and acting differently as a result. You are an adaptable and curious learner who is comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with multiple teams and projects. You understand and are committed to the principles of equity and the production of good health for all people.
You have experience interfacing with adult learners, developing curricula, and delivering trainings for diverse audiences. As an insightful manager, you are adept at building and maintaining healthy and productive relationships. You are organized, focused, and attentive to detail; you manage risk and timelines effectively while communicating proactively and regularly with teams and clients. You bring critical thinking and analysis to program content, act as a thought partner to multiple people and teams, have strong writing and verbal communication skills, and appreciate constructive feedback as a mechanism for professional development and personal growth.
