ENABLE Program

ENABLE is an in-house leadership development program at Red River College that provides learning and development support to:

The goals of ENABLE are to:

  • Foster the leadership philosophy and style into the daily practices of all College leaders.
  • Ensure competency development is aligned to the needs of College goals and individual learners.
  • Address the learning and development needs of intact leadership teams.
