Leadership and Collaboration

In a comprehensive cancer centre setting, leadership means the ability to harness collective effort to achieve maximum gain.

Our distributed leadership model aims to build networks of knowledge and expertise to tackle the most difficult research, education and clinical challenges. This type of leadership requires working democratically across organisation and field boundaries, while raising the bar of expectation and achievement.

Similarly, effective collaboration must be strategic and insightful. Collaborations must offer benefits for all participants and provide opportunities to achieve more collectively than as one.

A proven method for delivering better cancer care

As an alliance, our distributed leadership model means we draw leaders from across all our partners – they lead research and education programs, advise on committees and work as ambassadors. We also bring in new expertise and leadership where needed; nurturing the next generation of cancer leaders to carry the vision forward.
