Engage Others

In Partnership with CCHL through LEADS Canada




This dynamic and interactive course explores the Engage Others domain of the LEADS in a Caring Environment leadership framework. This domain focuses on four capabilities that you as a leader must carry out: contributing to the creation of healthy organizations, fostering the development of others, communicating effectively, and building teams.  

Your success as a leader depends upon your ability to influence the actions of others. Without willing, energized, and engaged followers, a leader is unable to accomplish results on any significant scale. Leaders engage others through personal influence, teamwork, trust, communication, and the creation and management of performance expectations.
