This week's reflection

Stewardship is leaving a system better than you found it.

Michael Barber

Mission discernment

The heart of discernment is listening to the voice of the Spirit.

The Covenant Health Mission Discernment Tool is designed to help Covenant Health leaders make good decisions about major clinical, operational and administrative issues, in alignment with our mission and values.

The booklet provides context, triggers, the discernment process and key questions. The Mission Discernment Template allows leaders to type answers into a Word document as they go through the discernment process.

For more information about the Mission Discernment Tool or to request coaching or facilitation, please contact Gordon Self, Vice-President, Mission, Ethics and Spirituality, at 780.735.9597 or
