Leading Transformational Change Course- Feedback

Conestoga College in partnership with Children's Services, developed a 30-hour course called "Leading Transformational Change".  The purpose of the course was to provide the participants the opportunity to examine the key elements of leadership through the lens of evidence informed practices, evolving system issues and strengthened professional identity. Participants received financial support to cover tuition, resources and staff replacement costs in their work locations.  The course was offered for a second time during the fall of 2016 and a total of 17 participants completed the course.  Their feedback was collected and summarized and is available by clicking the following link. This report provides a summary of the feedback.
