Graham Dickson
Graham Dickson, PhD
Professor Emeritus of Leadership Studies at Royal Roads University in Canada

Dr. Dickson works closely with the CCHL and LEADS Canada, and with the Canadian Health Leadership Network (CHLNet) to support their work, and to realize the vision of quality health leadership in Canada.

In the spring of 2020, he published—as a co-author with Bill Tholl (OC)—a second edition of the LEADS book: Bringing Leadership to Life in Health: LEADS in a Caring Environment—Putting LEADS to Work. The second edition of the LEADS book uses current research to explain the framework and has over 36 stories about how it has been put to work in a multiplicity of jurisdictions. A primary theme permeating all chapters in the book is the fundamental responsibility of health leaders to create psychologically healthy workplaces in which health providers—quintessential knowledge workers--can work and thrive.

Graham is the principal in LEADS Global, a not-for-profit enterprise that works closely with the CCHL, CHLNet, and the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders (CSPL) to enable countries outside of Canada to use LEADS for leadership development. He has designed and/or delivered leadership programs in over 10 countries world-wide. Graham consulted for five years with the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) to create and deliver programs to its Fellows.

Currently he is also acting as the Senior Research Advisor to the CSPL and CHLNet. Graham was principal investigator in a cross-Canada research project on LEADS in a Caring Environment capabilities framework. Graham also consulted with Health Workforce Australia on the creation of Health LEADS Australia, and the New South Wales Leadership Framework.

Dr. Dickson has published numerous peer reviewed articles on leadership, edited three special editions of the Leadership in Health Services journal dedicated to medical leadership.
