Get Ready for the Future of Health Care Leadership
In January 2018, LeaderShift got three years of funding to help leaders in community and primary health care build their leadership capacity and get collaboration-ready.
Today, thanks to this innovative, cross-sector project, we have 500+ current and emerging leaders in our ecosystem who are more confident, more collaborative, and more system-oriented than ever before. By providing access to the LEADS Learning Series and other initiatives, including a conference, on-demand webinars, and e-learning opportunities, LeaderShift has significantly moved the needle in the 17 key leadership domains. We’ve also built community, sparking new relationships and partnerships across the ecosystem.
Independent research confirms that LeaderShift grads are more confident leaders, are better prepared for collaboration, think more strategically, and take on bigger, more complex challenges in their organizations. That’s exactly what community and primary care -- in fact, all of health care -- needs from its leaders, right now.
Collaboration is in Our DNA
The vision for LeaderShift was sparked when Community Health Ontario members came together to address common challenges they were facing around leadership and leadership development: health system transformation, an aging workforce, and retaining top talent.
They recognized that transformation of the healthcare sector, in particular, demands that leaders in our ecosystem work together differently, collaborate outside their organizations, and work within and across sectors to amplify their impact. And that It takes a different set of skills to navigate organizations through big changes. Community Health Ontario (CHO) is comprised of:
Early on, Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario became a project partner. From the outset, our vision was to collaborate to build capacity for systems change, and to cultivate leaders who understand the strengths, challenges, and opportunities in our sectors, and have the tools and capacity to take us into the future confidently.
LeaderShift is making a real difference to current and emerging leadership in our ecosystem, at exactly the moment when leaders are being called upon to step into new roles and new dynamics. Find out more about what we’ve accomplished, how we’ve done it, and how LeaderShift can help you advance.
