Using future-focused insights, CILCA shines a spotlight on your most significant gaps by understanding the current and desired performance.

CILCA is completely available online and is the leading care industry-specific assessment that identifies strengths and gaps at all levels of leadership.


What does CILCA measure?

It measures leadership Capability across 5 different leadership domains:

  • Leading Self – Relationship with, understanding of, and care for self.
  • Leading Others – Ability to relate to, communicate with, and work effectively with others.
  • Leading Business – Management of business resources to achieve organisational goals.
  • Leading Purpose – Ability to articulate and promote the organisation’s sprit, purpose and strategic direction.
  • Leading Change – Capacity to foster a working environment that encourages creative and holistic approaches.

Assessing Industry Care Standards:

In addition to the 5 leadership domains, the CILCA also incorporates aspects from both the Aged Care Quality Standards or the National Disability Practice Standards depending on your industry. By incorporating these standards into the CILCA it allows for more understanding into the leader's ability to adhere to and offer high standards of care related to both positive client and organisational outcomes.
