Leadership Training at Your Hospital

On-Site LEAD Academy Trains Managers to be Successful Leaders

LEAD Academy sessions provide an engaging and safe environment to practice newly learned skills and align work goals and actions to support the broader vision of your organization.

LEAD Academy cohorts work together for six monthly meetings, a full day each month, focusing on:
• Self-development
• Supporting the development of others
• Managing and developing a successful organization

When your staff finishes their LEAD Academy cohort, they will:

  1. Improve the performance of the people that report to them
  2. Enhance their contribution to the achievement of your hospital’s strategic goals
  3. Increase their own self-management skills during every day and stressful situations
