LEAD is a shared leadership program, developed in partnership between Brandon University (BU) and Assiniboine Community College (ACC), that aims to prepare high potential individuals for positions of increasing responsibility and leadership and to provide new and existing leaders the opportunity to build their leadership capacity.

With a focus on Transformational Leadership, the program will consist of six (6) modules on the topics of:

  • Transformational Leadership
  • A Manager's Toolkit (ACC & BU Specific)
  • Motivating & Inspiring Teams
  • Decision Making & Creative Problem Solving
  • Difficult Conversations
  • Dealing with Conflict

The program begins with the completion of a MBTI and MLQ 360° assessment for self-reflection.  At the launch of the program, participants will spend time establishing a personal learning plan for the program, based on the results of the assessments.  The program modules will consist of workshop participation, pre-readings or preparation for each workshop, as well as access to a learning community set up for the cohort using Moodle.  Participants will demonstrate what they have learned through the completion of a chosen work project, with the outcomes being presented to the group in early May.  The workshops will be facilitated by both internal and external subject matter experts.
