Two weeks ago, we told you why you might not want to apply to the Connecticut Health Foundation (CT Health) Health Leadership Fellows Program. This sparked quite the debate amongst the member of our Fellows’ Network. Those who left comments were eager for the most part to tell us that they had found the program so inspirational that they would encourage anyone to apply. For us, that’s great news.
In the conversation, our Fellows reminded us of the seven common traits we see across people who are accepted to the program:
- PROUD to be an active part of a network of leaders in CT who are passionate about advancing health equity in CT.
- EAGER to ACT on their passion for health equity and immerse themselves in an intense year of leadership learning, connection and engagement.
- WILLING to commit personal development time to take themselves to the next level of leadership capacity.
- OPEN to learning about leading in new ways – not just managing in old ways.
- INTERESTED in increasing their visibility as a leader committed to health equity.
- FOCUSED on promoting effective collaboration as a leadership strategy.
- INFORMED about the current issues and ways to stay on top of relevant information and events.
This marks the last week of recruitment for the Class of 2014 Health Leadership Fellows. Applications are due Monday, April 1, 2013. What do you say? Could this be you?
