About the Program
Applied Leadership Effectiveness and Development (ALEAD) is a competency-based curriculum designed to develop skills and knowledge among current and emerging healthcare leaders that will ensure a talent pipeline for organizational effectiveness and sustainability.
The program is geared towards directors, managers and supervisors of services throughout the health system and is comprised of seven courses:
- Leadership in Healthcare
- Patient Experience and its Value to the Organization
- Quality, Safety, and Improvement Sciences
- Fundamentals of Healthcare Finance
- Emotional Intelligence
- Leading and Influencing Organizational Teams
- Tools to Achieve Strategic and Organizational Goals
Courses will be led by subject matter experts throughout the health system, including members of senior leadership.
Participants can also choose from a wide variety of enrichment courses to enhance existing skills or learn new ones.
Courses will be carried out in accordance with the Center for Learning and Innovation’s new learning framework. Participants will be given reading assignments to be completed prior to attending each course to better prepare each participant for the session. The classroom discussion will be case-based learning and led by an expert facilitator.
In addition, simulation has been introduced to play a key role among the various activities utilized in order to apply the theory and principles discussed in each class. Debriefing discussion will be held immediately following the activity in order to provide timely positive feedback to all participants.
Participants are expected to complete all of the required coursework within their selected semester. As a part of that required coursework, a Capstone project must be completed. The Capstone projects will be carried out at the conclusion of the semester to commence the ALEAD experience. These projects will be mentored by leadership members at the various participants’ sites to ensure the project is in alignment with the goals of the health system and the implementations can be sustained.
