CHLNet/LEADS Webinar Series

Webinar #8 - LEADS Impact: CADTH’s Case Study
Monday, June 26, 2017


This webinar overviewed the findings from a two-year Mitacs research project on the benefits, opportunities and lessons learned by early adopters of LEADS in Canada. We also heard from CADTH, one of the early adopter organizations, about how LEADS has provided the common language and shared experiences to support leadership development throughout the organization and how LEADS has become a touchstone for corporate culture transformation. CADTH’s showed their unique approach to implementing LEADS in a medium-sized organization and the tangible benefits they have achieved as a result.

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.
