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.
The LeaderShift project is the vision of CHO. This alliance of four provincial associations believes that leaders in community and primary health care are well-positioned to make a critical contribution to an improved and more integrated health system.
LeaderShift is an ambitious, new cross-sector initiative that gives current and emerging leaders in community and primary health care the opportunity to develop their abilities, ignite collaboration, and participate in shaping the future of our health care system .
