Who We’ve Served

Large Regional Municipality, Western Canada

Development of a Leadership Program

A large regional municipality in Western Canada has undergone unprecedented change over the last few years, and requires agile and resilient leaders to take on these challenges. 4Forward designed and developed 14 courses, grounded in best practices using leading research sources, and tailored specifically to the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. Cohorts of 20–25 leaders and managers will work through the series of courses over a 1–3 year period. As the groups work through the courses in the program, leaders and managers will develop enhanced skills to strengthen team dynamics, improve communication and collaboration, and build skills in strategic planning. All courses align with corporate values, vision, strategy, and goals. Each course includes a detailed leadership development design document, Facilitator’s Guide, Participant Workbook, PowerPoint, and between-session assignments.

4Forward brought a level of clarity that we had not seen from other firms. They didn’t bombard us with jargon or complicated training models – just a clear plan to help us get what we needed."
