LEADS represents an innovative, integrated, investment in the future of health leadership in Canada. It provides a comprehensive approach to developing leaders that is tailored for the Canadian health sector, including leadership at the whole-system level, at the level of individual health organizations, and for individual leaders themselves.
At the whole-system and health organization levels, LEADS is actively involved in developing strategies for effective leadership succession and capacity development. It supports a culture of effective leadership across the entire health sector.
LEADS can assist organizations to develop organization-wide strategies to build leadership talent. Our suite of products and services can provide a leadership development plan for individual leaders.
As part of this process, The Canadian College of Health Leaders, with our members and partners in the LEADS Collaborative, work with healthcare employers to identify high-potential leadership candidates, to assess their capabilities, and to help connect them to professional development and academic learning that will help them to go the next steps in their careers.
