    ➤ Our bold new path

    With the implementation of our visionary Strategic Plan in 2015, the College embarked on a bold new path – one that will see us transforming the way that we execute our leadership role. The plan is ambitious and while disruptive, builds on existing College programs to engage our growing membership base while generating new revenues.

    The Board is closely monitoring progress using a reporting dashboard against each of the 3 strategic directions. Members can follow the progress by accessing the dashboard through the home page of the members area or the Strategic Directions page.

    ➤ Supporting, enabling and guiding our members

    The College, and its Board who act as Stewards of the Mission, is committed to developing, promoting, advancing and recognizing excellence in health leadership. We recognize that our value proposition must keep pace with the needs of today’s leaders. To truly influence the Canadian leadership landscape, we must embark on new initiatives – actions that will support, enable and guide our members as they discharge their leadership roles.

    ➤ Asking, thanking and informing

    Communicating early and often is critically important to our success. We need to be continuously gathering and acting on feedback from our members to ensure that our actions hit the mark. While we will summarize our work – our activities are incomplete without your feedback. In other words, we need to hear from you! We encourage all of our members to share their insights and feedback on all of our work.


    ➤ Transforming the College by campaign

    A key, and perhaps most important, activity of the College will be our upcoming Membership Campaign. We recognize that today’s leaders are discerning. They want and need rapidly consumable information – and a belonging to a community that is dynamic and forward-thinking. Our drive to bring new members into the College will consider these needs while we strive for a goal of having 4000+ members by the year 2020. Please support your local chapter with the ‘member-raising’ events and initiatives taking place throughout the year.

    ➤ All Aboard!

    ➤ Making the CHE all it can be

    Our active engagement of employers is designed to showcase the CHE designation while making it the ‘designation of choice’ for employers. Our partnerships and agreements are focused on the broad/National uptake of the CHE.

    ➤ LEADing the way

    LEADS continues to be at the forefront of leadership development. We are continuing to build on our success to-date and are working to establish a strategy to certify LEADS Executive Coaches and Facilitators/Consultants. Creating the LEADS Community for Practice continues also be our area of focus – we believe that this is the optimal vehicle to connect all those who use LEADS.
