CPA Leadership Forum

Welcome to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s online course that was recorded at the 2017 Leadership Forum! 

Leadership can come from an older perspective; think of Enid Graham, the founder of physiotherapy in Canada, precisely 100 years ago. Leadership can look like someone in a position of power and influence analyzing and contributing to policy and governance. And leadership can also look like a new graduate with an insatiable curiosity and a drive to improve the practice of physiotherapy in Canada. 

Some would say leadership is a process of social influence which maximizes efforts of others towards achievement of a goal. While others have said it’s the capacity to translate vision into reality. 

This online course is only one small part of what was taught, discussed and shared at the Leadership Forum.

The Forum will explore four themes: 

  1. Leading a Team – how do you build an engaged team that is able to withstand the tides of change? 
  2. Self-Improvement – how do you identify your learning needs and fill in the gaps in your skillset?  
  3. Innovation – what’s new and emerging? How do you stay one step ahead? 
  4. Change and Practice Management – what steps need to be taken in order to implement change? 

Whatever leadership looks like to you, universally it is agreed that leaders influence the energy of a group to achieve more, aim higher and succeed at bigger results than any one person can achieve on their own.
