Bringing Leadership to Life: The Hero’s Journey
Bringing leadership to Life in Health: LEADS in a Caring Environment.
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.

WHAT THEY SAY
We work systematically to integrate corporate responsibility in our core business and make our expertise available for the benefit of the societies where we operate.
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.
