PHC Leadership Dialogue Sessions — Creating a New Future

Over the past four months, the Creating a New Future Advisory Team, led by Chantal Normand and supported by leaders from within PHC, has been busy creating and hosting dialogue sessions for PHC leaders.

These sessions provide leaders with the opportunity to learn from each other and connect with other leaders facing similar situations (embodying the learning organization).  It also encourages leaders to reflect on their leadership style — what is working well and what can be improved on.  The Advisory Committee is excited to continue offering the Creating a New Future program to leaders and physicians over the next 6 months.  The team will continue to roll out relevant and pragmatic tools and sessions to support leaders as they navigate this challenging time.

The Creating a New Future Advisory Committee is comprised of:

  • Katherine Marlow 
  • Chantal Normand
  • Elisabeth Stanger
  • Chelsea Keenan
  • Jill Constantino
  • Melodie Yong
  • Jane Boal
  • Meghan McMenamie
  • Neeta Uppal
  • Kunal Moryana

Please find below summaries of the previous leadership dialogue sessions, facilitated by Chantal Normand, and supporting documents.  Each session is listed by date. If you have any questions or feedback, please email Chantal Normand
