Professional Development

Welcome to the Leadership Development portal!  The purpose of this site is to centralize as much leadership-related material as possible so that any College employee can access it anytime/anywhere.

We are taking a multi-faceted approach to leadership development at Confederation College – some of it will be formal and we hope a great deal of it will be informal; as we say ‘organic’.  By that we mean that each of us will undertake a leadership development journey at our own pace and in the direction that most suits each one of us.

We’d like to support everyone in whatever way possible.  For example, we offer whatever support we can to employees with similar interests who want to develop a leadership program.  We invite your suggestions for speakers, courses, and so on and encourage all of you to add information to this site.
