Welcome to the Leads Learning Scholar Practitioner Network Reply

Welcome to the Leads Learning Blog! We are excited to launch an integrated approach to services and learning programs in support of leaders using the LEADS framework produced by Royal Roads University (through the good work of Dr. Graham Dickson) and HCLABC. We plan to use this blog space to keep you up-to-date on our own projects, thoughts, emerging practice and exciting news in support of Leads Learning initiatives big and small.

Here is a little bit about who we are and why we created Leads Learning. Leads Learning is a network of scholar practitioners providing learning programs, consulting services and resources to increase the capacity of leaders where using or plan to use the LEADS leadership framework. Leads Learning was borne of the realization that there is a growing demand for service and support in the use of many different approaches to leadership development including the LEADS framework. Each of the network members has special certification, qualification, expertise and/or skill in at least one of the LEADS Domains. Our network members have depth of experience and contribution in activities related to researching the LEADS framework and designing programs ranging from in-service seminars and workshops to multi-week post graduate residence programs.

We are excited about the road ahead and the possibilities the future holds. Please contact us (info@leadslearning.com) to learn more about our upcoming programs, services and offerings.
