The Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP) provides developmental opportunities for individuals to develop their leadership skills and core competencies to take on a future leadership role as a senior manager (Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Executive Director, Assistant Deputy Minister and Director) within the Health and Social Services (HSS) system.
The program is open to individuals with an interest in developing senior management level competencies in a health and social services setting.
The objectives of ELDP are to:
- Develop individuals to attain the required senior leadership and management competencies to succeed at a senior management level within a Northwest Territories Health and Social Services Authority;
- Support succession planning within the HSS system; and
- Build northern leadership capacity.
A Steering Committee comprised of the Deputy Minister, Chief Executive Officers and Chief Operating Officers provide oversight for the ELDP, including direction on how to solicit applications to the program.
