Leadership Training

Dr Sheila Findlay

Dr Sheila Findlay took part in one of the JCC’s leadership programs.

“It was transformational,” she said. “It honed skills that were there but needed polishing. It gives you the language to explain the rationale, the skills to facilitate, the nuts and bolts to run Boards more efficiently, and the administrative leadership skills and know-how.”  Her advice to physicians: “Be courageous, step forward. It’s daunting to dip your toe into the water but the rewards are huge.” Read her story here
