The LEADS Collaborative

The LEADS Collaborative
supports the growing interest in the adoption, integration and sustainability of the LEADS in a Caring Environment (LEADS) leadership capabilities framework across Canada and represents a partnership between the Canadian College of Health Leaders, CHLNet, Royal Roads University and Dr. Graham Dickson.The purpose of the LEADS Collaborative is to provide a trusted portal for LEADS products and services to support healthcare organizations develop, adopt and sustain leadership development programs within the LEADS framework. The LEADS Operations Council oversees the promotion of innovation and high-quality services provided through the LEADS Collaborative .

The LEADS Collaborative also ensures the integrity and currency of the framework through research and development overseen by the LEADS Framework Governance Group.

The LEADS Collaborative has attracted a team of high quality executive coaches and faculty to deliver LEADS products and services and to seamlessly support the integration and adoption of the LEADS framework as a leadership development platform and change management tool in Canadian healthcare.



Come join us in historical Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for a full day of sharing leadership journeys as well as the exchange of LEADS-based initiatives and tools. Come together with other Canadian health leaders who use or are interested in using the LEADS framework for leadership capacity development within their organizations.

The objectives of the 2015 LEADs Exchange day are to:
  • Offer participants the opportunity to exchange knowledge on a variety of tools that have been developed by organizations across the country that integrate LEADS into practice
  • To learn from each other and to understand the development principles that help contextualize tools into one’s own environment
  • To collaboratively develop evaluation frameworks for leadership capacity development
