Are you committed to developing leaders? For several years now, I’ve had the pleasure of facilitating this community of practice in collaboration with Québec’s Human Resources Association (Ordre des CRHA). Participants discover new trends and proven strategies for developing leaders, and discuss the challenges they face.

Orientation et intention

More than ever, we operate in a complex and changing environment, where staying put is essentially going backwards. In the face of such challenges, organizational resilience necessarily depends on the ability of humans to renew themselves. This is especially true for leaders, who must simultaneously operate and reinvent their organizations, anticipating the effects of all these changes.

According to Louis Hébert, professor at HEC Montréal, the tomorrow’s leaders will have to demonstrate self-control, humility, open-mindedness, vigilance, as well as a great capacity to analyze information. “They will need to listen to their teams, examine perspectives in their diversity, be aware of their own preconceptions, know how to step back and question themselves.” Developing these capabilities will require the leader to not only develop new skills, but also to learn how to shift their mindset and make sense of the world in which they operate.

Connecting, being inspired and learning from other professionals accelerates the evolution of your HR practice, and this is more relevant and necessary than ever!

This virtual community of practice brings together HR professionals from all backgrounds and regions who are committed to developing leaders. If leaders have a duty to grow, HR professionals have the power to help them by providing effective and appropriate development solutions.

The cohorts generally start in October and continue until the Spring, for 5 sessions, where we exchange practices and resources on shared issues, 100% remotely. A flexible and accessible format that can be easily integrated into your schedule, the virtual mode is very conducive to the creation of trusting relationships, that help you move from inspiration to action.


As a participant, you are invited to:

  • Discover new trends and proven strategies in leadership development and share your challenges.
  • Share your inspirations, experiences, successes and learnings with the group.
  • Interact with special guests who embody tomorrow’s leadership.
  • Discuss concrete ways in which you are testing innovative practices to develop tomorrow’s leaders, soliciting and providing feedback.
  • Take action and experiment with new practices in your environment.

Targeted participants:

CHRPs, generalists or specialists, from all levels of experience, who are directly involved in the development of leaders and who have a real desire to innovate and experiment with practices that are off the beaten track. Minimum 8, maximum 16 participants.

Meeting topics

The themes explored are confirmed by participants at the first meeting, according to their interests and concerns. Here is a non-exhaustive list of questions around which we learn together:

  • Who are the leaders of tomorrow?
  • What are the development practices that produce lasting results?
  • How can we accelerate the development of leaders?
  • How to develop leaders’ ability to own and manage their development?
  • How to help leaders navigate complexity?

How the meetings work

This community of practice offers a dynamic forum for exchange, facilitating the transition from inspiration to action.

The structure of the meetings is determined in consultation with participants and varies according to the topic at hand: sharing experiences, case studies, presentation of innovative practices by a guest expert or a participant, activities of the following types : brainstorming, demonstrations, live implementation of ideas, etc., all accompanied by discussions on concrete ways of taking action. Readings, reflections and/or experiments are suggested and solicited in connection with the chosen topics. With the group’s agreement, certain meetings can be structured in co-development mode to help participants move forward in depth on a specific issue.

The meetings are held on Zoom. Technical requirements: good internet connection, camera, headphones, access to the Zoom platform, quiet place to fully participate in the discussions.

Note on meeting dates: A calendar is proposed for the season; dates can be adapted to the needs of the group. An approach that is often used in co-development groups, since the presence and commitment of all are essential.
