LEADS Community for Practice Forum
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.
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.
