YLeadership is a foundational leadership development program created to allow the next generation of leaders to thrive as they meet the many challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
Held twice a year in Banff, Y Leadership offers young leaders (and potential leaders) the opportunity to better understand their leadership strength and styles, and build on their capacity to engage and lead others. It’s designed with a hands-on approach and with the intent of building a cohort of peer learners for on-going development.
By participating in this course, individuals will gain:
- A better understanding of personal leadership style and strengths
- Experience working in a high performance team setting
- Hands-on experience giving and receiving feedback for improved performance.
- Establishment of a community of peers and learning network for continued and sustained learning.

“I had an enjoyable weekend, making new friends and learning a lot about myself and leadership. I will be using many of the skills I have learned in my workplace.”

“This Y Leadership program really developed my confidence, as well as challenged my perceived notions of ‘Leadership’. Having a chance to meet and engage with new leaders, all with varying skills & strengths, of my own age/generation was an invaluable experience.
