A key to the long-term success of any department is to be able to develop and support current and future leaders and provide them with the skills and insights that will enable them to perform at the highest level as they take on leadership roles and tasks.
While there are many opportunities for leadership training, including our own Faculty of Health Science's Leadership Program, for the last 4 years our Department has offered a foundational leadership skills development program, which is open to all faculty, learners and staff interested in improving their performance in their current leadership roles, or preparing them for roles they are likely to take on in the near future.
The program includes 4 learning sessions looking at general leadership skills (including managing crucial conversations), Communities of Practice of 68 people - including one just for residents in leadership roles, and opportunities for mentoring. Details of the goals and format of the program can be found and an outline of the learning sessions for previous years can be found here
If you are interested in finding out more about the program, or applying for this years program which will begin in October, please contact Joanne Milne firstname.lastname@example.org
