Initiatives & Programs


The goal of the REALIZE experience is to inspire already effective leaders to become transformational leaders for the benefit of the region’s health. Customized for the Paso del Norte region and built on nine leadership attributes, REALIZE offers a cohort of twenty executives, the opportunity for individualized leadership growth over fifteen months.

With strengthened leadership in place, regional organizations and individuals are better positioned to promote health and prevent disease. Key REALIZE interventions include a customized 360 and other leadership assessments, executive coaching around personalized leadership goals, two transformational off-site experiences, at least six one-day cohort connect learning sessions, networking opportunities, assessments to measure individual growth, and more.

The REALIZE experience is funded and operated by the Paso del Norte Health Foundation.
