How to Measure Impact of Health Leadership Development
Thursday, October 26, 2017, 12pm-1pm ET
Register yourself and your colleagues for our groundbreaking webinar on how to measure the impact of formal leadership and leadership development (LD) programs in Canada. The Canadian Health Leadership Network (CHLNet) has undertaken a pan-Canadian research project aimed at developing such a valid and reliable toolkit. Measuring impact including Return on Investment (ROI) can be a powerful tool in helping to identify health leadership interventions or programs that have the greatest potential to improve outputs and outcomes in relation to their costs.

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.
Gregory Taylor, BSc, MD, CCFP, FRCPC
Chief Public Health Officer, Public Health Agency of Canada
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.
