Putting LEADS to Work: Highlights

The first edition of Bringing Leadership to Life in Health: The LEADS in a Caring Environment (2014), introduced the 5 domains of the LEADS Framework. In this second edition, the authors (Dickson, Tholl), profile health leaders from across Canada and abroad and share their lessons of leadership, and how those lessons bring LEADS to life: in practice, not theory. Over the next year, we will be sharing the authors' top highlights and lessons learned. Make sure to follow us for these regular posts.

LEADS 360 Assessments

Does your organization need support to develop successful LEADERS?

The LEADS 360 Assessment is a feedback process primarily for development purposes. It focuses on leadership and takes the capabilities identified in the LEADS in Caring Environment capabilities framework and identifies sentinel behaviors that would be exhibited by front-line, mid-level, senior, or executive level leaders.

Visit our LEADS Services page to learn more.
