Dartmouth LEADS Program

Information for the 2019-2020 LEADS cohort will be available in early 2019. The cohort will launch in September 2019.

Leadership is about inspiring others to give their best, cultivating collaboration, and delivering results. 

Created with input from senior leaders and staff, Dartmouth LEADS is an investment in individuals who demonstrate a commitment to ongoing learning and professional development. The dynamic and engaging 9-month program is cohort-based, with space for 16 - 20 participants representing a diverse cross-section of Dartmouth. 

Over the course of the program, participants will:

  • Create a personalized leadership development plan anchored in a 360-degree assessment of their unique strengths and growth areas.
  • Create an Action Learning Project that meets a departmental/divisional priority.
  • Strengthen communication and leadership skills.
  • Gain confidence to serve as a leader in their departments, teams, and divisions.
  • Create a collaborative cross-institutional learning community.

Dartmouth LEADS is a selective program. Applicants must be nominated by their supervisor, or a divisional leader in consultation with the nominee’s supervisor, to apply. Applications do not guarantee participation in the program, as we aim to create a well-balanced and diverse cohort.
