COVID-19 has been a difficult time. As leaders, we have been challenged to adapt our leadership style — embracing whatever challenges come our way.  

Here at PHC, we want to support you as leaders. We have developed the PHC Creating the new Future as a platform to reflect on the innovative work and learnings during COVID-19. By using this platform, we can grow as leaders and continue to provide excellent patient care — which we are known for here at Providence Health Care. All sessions will be held via Zoom and facilitated by Chantal Normand, Change Specialist. 

Here are the sessions for October. Please note, the invitations with Zoom details will be sent to your outlook calendar. We look forward to you joining us.
