Our organizational & leadership development department provides ongoing staff development activities that help every individual maximize their skills and potential to collectively maintain a constructive culture. To build workforce capability and capacity we provide:

Organizational communication: Temperament

Our communication program is about understanding yourself and others through the knowledge and application of temperament and interaction styles. It is based on the premise that people are different and successful working relationships are based on self-awareness, trust and perspective shifting.

Living Leadership

Living Leadership is based on the philosophy that leadership is a learned skill and is a transformational strategy that teaches how to create an environment where people can learn, grow and behave as responsible adults.

Clinical Skills Development

We continually strive for evidence-based best practices to enhance the care of our patients. Staff are supported in developing and maintaining clinical skill sets from onboarding, to regulatory courses, to skills fairs, etc.
