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

A key priority of the LEADS Internal 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 LEADS Internal Facilitator program, each candidate will: a) participate in either a three or five day LEADS Internal Facilitator workshop; b) design and c) deliver a LEADS workshop suited to their organization. The design is submitted to and assessed by the LEADS Facilitator (assigned by the College) prior to delivery, and certification is complete when the session is cofacilitated with the LEADS Facilitator.
