Charting the Next Steps in your LEADS Journey



  Agenda    l     Committee   l   Exchange Day Home
The 2016 LEADS Exchange Morning was held in Vancouver, BC on November 3, 2016 following the BC Health Leadership Conference . Thirty-five (35) participants from across the country participated in this half day of sharing, connecting, and learning.

This day would not have been possible without our facilitator Shauna Fenwick (bio) and our committee members. Thank you for your dedication and support of LEADS.
Thank you as well to our sponsor for their contribution:




Based on the guidance of the planning committee, the morning was structured as entirely interactive. Brenda Lammi , Director, LEADS Canada, opened the day with an overview of where LEADS is being used in Canada. The list keeps growing!

After this introduction, participants engaged in networking activities to identify the extent of their work with LEADS, the ways LEADS resonates and challenges them and what they wished about the use of LEADS in their organization. These activities were planned to help participants meet new people and extend their network.

The first morning activity was sharing best experiences using LEADS to foster the development of others. Participants engaged in pairs, and then in 4's to share positive examples of how they are using LEADS.

The second activity was to work in triads to discuss ways to use LEADS to address a strategic challenge. Each participant came with a challenge and left with ideas from 2 others about how to specifically use LEADS in their work.

At the close of the very full morning participants created their individual action plans to implement some of the ideas generated during the morning's session.

Judy Hemmingsen , Managing Partner Personal Strengths Canada Inc., the morning's sponsor, also had the opportunity to present on how using the Core Strengths training tool can help promote talent management.

The presenters provided an update on the twelve-partner Pan-Canadian and International Project on Return on Investment in Leadership Development in Healthcare. The project aims to develop a simple, reliable, cost-effective and valid ROI tool that organizations can use to assess their leadership development efforts. They presented preliminary findings of the scoping review – work that was carried out by the George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation in Manitoba.
