Winston Churchill said, “I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.” This is a very human reaction because learning from others can make one feel very vulnerable. It is sometimes seems like an admission that someone else knows more than you do at least about a particular subject. Our organization includes many very seasoned and eminent professionals. However, nobody can know everything about every subject and our mission is not to get into the weeds but to assist our leaders in asking the right questions of those who report to them.  Our curriculum includes but is not limited to:
quality and safety
ethics, compliance, health law
business decision-making
medical staff affairs
human resources including recruiting, onboarding, setting expectations, counseling

“There are two ways to extend a business. Take inventory of what you're good at and extend out from your skills. Or determine what your customers need and work backward, even if it requires learning new skills. Kindle is an example of working backward”-Jeff Bezos

“We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn”-Peter Drucker. 

You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't already know that learning it's a lifelong process and didn't already know how to learn. The job of the American College of Healthcare Trustees is to provide an efficient platform for our Fellows to learn and document their achievements and to network and to ensure that our Fellows are treated much more respectfully then other platforms that have similar goals. We are co-produced by our Fellows and the same Fellow might be taking a course on business decision-making and learning the finer points of capital budgeting while giving a survey course on medical principles to non-clinical executives. This is the way leaders transcend silos and fine tune their meta-leadership skills.Apply for or renew ACHT Fellowship 

It is our objective to provide a convenient, respectful, and often exciting platform for serious people working in the healthcare space and members of the lay community who dedicate their time to Board service and other responsible endeavors. You know have a convenient way of applying for some amazing leadership jobs.
