J Public Health Manag Pract 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Environmental Health & Engineering, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland (Drs Tower and Barnett); Department of Health Policy and Management, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Dr Van Nostrand); Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia (Dr Misra); Mid-Atlantic Regional Public Health Training Center at University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Dr Van Nostrand); Mid-Atlantic Regional Public Health Training Center Community-Based Training Partner at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland (Drs Tower and Barnett); and Mid-Atlantic Regional Public Health Training Center Community-Based Training Partner at West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia (Dr Misra).

Context: Leaders in public health have made great advances in workforce development over the past 30 years, while shifting from an emphasis based in training on individual, technical skills to a more holistic development approach, which boosts crosscutting skills. Efforts to increase public health workforce capabilities remain focused on workers as individuals, rather than the workforce as a collective unit.

Program: Research has shown that a strategic adult learning approach can improve both individual capabilities and the collective performance of the workforce, which can be explained using social cognitive theory and the concept of collective efficacy, or the collective belief of workers in the ability of the group to succeed.
