What is the Hero’s Journey?
All those who aspire to improving their leadership can be described as ‘heroes’ because to continue to grow your leadership capacity, you are encouraged to enter into a lifelong journey of personal growth and development. The Hero’s Journey is a program of self-directed learning as you move through a series of micro-learning Treks.
The LEADS in a Caring Environment capabilities framework (LEADS) is a ‘by health, for health’ outline of leadership capabilities health leaders need to be successful in integrating service, creating psychologically healthy workplaces, and generating long-term change and reform.
About the Journey…
Our Hero’s Journey Treks are based on LEADS. Each trek enables you to grow your leadership capacity by traveling through a series of learning episodes that utilize your workplace as a source of learning. Each trek that strengthens your knowledge, skills and capabilities of leadership.

LEADS: A Framework that Works
In today’s fast-paced, highly competitive healthcare environment, health leaders need to provide inspirational and transformational leadership by role modeling the values, principles, and behaviors that shape the culture of a healthy organization:Where staff has their psychological health recognized and catered for. Where staff, in turn, provides leadership by promoting the well-being of others.
And this is why the LEADS framework provides incredible outcomes. LEADS uses an International Comparative Process to help you reflect on your leadership behaviors and identify which ones are culturally appropriate in your jurisdiction.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step— The Hero's Journey program ensures that your first step will be a defining one! Your foundational treks moves you through a series of assessments and planning sessions that will get you from where you are now to where you ultimately want to be.
You'll also get a comprehensive PDF output of your unique profile that will guide you in selecting what domains and capabilities to focus your learning on. This tailored feedback will help you discover your unique leadership traits and strengths, enabling you to become a more impactful leader in the world.
The Hero’s Journey is a powerful tool for managing organizational conflicts. Complex organizations like hospitals are crammed with daily conflicts. As a healthcare team leader you have to lead every conflict to achieve a step forward. In my opinion, mastering LEADS, principles is invaluable tool for every healthcare leader.
This program has been integral in further developing my confidence in supporting and empowering others around me. It is well-structured with various learning modules, each containing didactics followed by activities to reflect, apply, and assess key concepts of the LEADS framework. I highly recommend this program for everyone as it teaches a lot about leadership and about one’s self through reflection.
