The CCL Program targets senior and high potential leaders across health care and education, who register in teams. The program requires a minimum of two team members from each organization and/or community that represent different professions.
Structured to be context specific, the curriculum is adapted to the individuals, teams, organizations and communities participating. Participants work on a Capstone Initiative during and between sessions, which they develop, design, implement and evaluate in their community or organization. Participants from the same organization should either be working on the same initiative or be prepared to integrate, align or link different initiatives as part of working systemically.
This Program covers a 12-month period with five two-day face-to-face sessions and blends these intensive sessions with coaching from faculty. Additional coaching and learning is promoted via an online platform and community of practice. Throughout and between these sessions, many instructional approaches are utilized including experiential learning, online learning, reflection, theory bursts, small and large group activities and peer learning. The commitment between sessions includes reading specified books and articles for the following session, participating in the online and community of practice discussions, and applying learnings from the sessions to the Capstone Initiative.
Participants are also involved in evaluating the Program, both within and between sessions and after the conclusion of the Program.
