Coaching with LEADS, Short Course

  • Anytime
    Application Deadline
  • 2 months
This online course is for already certified executive coaches and is an orientation to the LEADS framework, particularly from the perspective of coaching a client who is either personally or professionally using the framework for leadership development. 


The course will teach how the framework can provide a language and a structure for learning to lead. Participants will explore the nuances of coaching to the client's agenda while gently holding the map of the LEADS framework as a guide. International Coach Federation (ICF) Continuing Education Credits will be awarded upon successful completion of this course.

The LEADS in a Caring Environment Health Leadership Capability Framework has been widely adopted by health agencies in Canada as a guide for developing leadership capacity. This course is for experienced coaches who are working within health authorities and as external contractors with clients whose employer may be using the LEADS framework for a variety of purposes, including performance development, succession planning and leadership education. Coaches do not necessarily need to be content experts in their clients' area of practice,  however, when coaches are working with clients who are using a particular framework, it can help both the coach and the client if the coach has a working knowledge of the language and major domains of that framework.
