Organizational LEADS Facilitator Certification

The Canadian College of Health Leaders, through LEADS Canada, wants to contribute to the creation of a level of consistency and quality to LEADS-based leadership development initiatives by health organizations across Canada, and avoid duplication of efforts and programs. The Organizational LEADS Facilitator Certification (OLF) program has been developed to equip leadership and Organization Development staff within hospitals, health authorities and regions across Canada with the knowledge and skills to deliver workshops and provide coaching to staff, using the LEADS framework as the foundation.

The aim of the Organizational LEADS Facilitator Certification is to develop a thorough familiarity with the LEADS framework, its’ application in various contexts and to offer current and evidence based facilitation methods which participants can use immediately in their leadership development strategies.

A key priority of the Organizational LEADS Facilitator program is to enhance the ability of health organizations to integrate LEADS resources into their current programs, initiatives and priorities related to leadership development and succession planning. As part of the Organizational LEADS Facilitator program, each candidate will participate in a three-day Organizational LEADS Facilitator workshop and deliver a LEADS program or resource designed to their own organizations’ specifications. LEADS Canada Facilitators will review and provide feedback for these written submissions.
