What is LEAD Academy?
LEAD Academy is an intensive six-day, 12-module training experience using innovative tools and experiential learning to empower recently hired, newly appointed or previously untrained health care leaders to better understand and use their strengths.  Designed for health care supervisors and managers, LEAD is built on the underlying principle that effective leadership requires productive relationships to support excellence in patient care, sustainable business objectives and a safe patient environment.

What is Advanced LEAD Academy? 
Advanced LEAD Academy is a three-day, six module program that provides the perfect next step for those who want exposure to more advanced skills, and for people who have basic leadership skills and want to explore their leadership potential.  Six comprehensive training modules strengthen competencies and cultivate skills of leaders at any level of the organization interested in learning how to:

• Balance strategic focus, operating objectives and interpersonal relationships
• Target and identify opportunities for innovation and change
• Manage and inspire the performance of their employees
