CHLNet/LEADS Webinar Series
Next Webinar: Our Most Impactful Lessons for Leaders in Health Reform
Friday, March 29, 2019 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET
Strong leadership is a critical success factor in stimulating innovation and the large-scale change required to improve performance for patients and families. As provinces engage in reform efforts, building health leadership capacity is an essential piece to modernizing our health workforce. Yet as initiatives unfold, leaders and the needed capabilities to facilitate innovation and large-scale change have been given limited profile and attention. Given this, the Canadian Health Leadership Network (CHLNet) has created a national working group to gather provincial leaders to exchange ideas and evidence including doing a better job of leadership development. In follow up to a breakfast session held at the 2018 National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC), three provinces will present their key strategies and lessons learned. Moderated by Kelly Grimes, Executive Director of CHLNet, this webinar will continue this informative and lively discussion.

Community for Practice
The LeaderShift project is the vision of CHO. This alliance of four provincial associations believes that leaders in community and primary health care are well-positioned to make a critical contribution to an improved and more integrated health system.
LeaderShift is an ambitious, new cross-sector initiative that gives current and emerging leaders in community and primary health care the opportunity to develop their abilities, ignite collaboration, and participate in shaping the future of our health care system.
Knowledge Generation and Exchange
The online LEADS Community for Practice enables members to interact with others across Canada who are also using LEADS in a variety of ways and settings. Membership in the LEADS Community for Practice provides access to discussion forums, leadership development research articles and LEADS resources. Members are encouraged to share their resources, experiences and learnings on the implementation and integration of LEADS to facilitate its’ use in new settings and in new ways.

The uptake of LEADS across Canada has been amazing. This will allow health system leaders to share a common language when leading system change for improvements.

Accreditation Canada has implemented the Leads framework by providing 360 feedback to management, incorporating it in its ongoing performance appraisal process and reaching out to all staff through education sessions. We have found the initiatives to support us in having a common language, setting goals, building a succession plan for the organization and increasing collaboration within the organization. It is important to recognize that it should be relevant to everyone in the organization to really build leadership at all levels.
The Succession Management Toolkit developed by Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) is based on best practice evidence, HHS experience and application. It provides leaders with approaches, tools, and templates that guide organizations to assess, evaluate, and develop their top talent; those who wish to grow their leadership potential and career within the organization. Building internal top talent retains top performers, builds leadership capacity, and preserves experiential knowledge only obtained by existing talent.
