Message from Your ACHE Regent - Fall 2014


A few months ago, I attended the strategic planning session of the Greater Charlotte Healthcare Executives chapter of ACHE. They did a great job evaluating the effectiveness of chapter activities, planning future initiatives and discussing ACHE goals. I was impressed with their commitment and energy.

One of the topics discussed at that session was mentorship. ACHE encourages all of us to serve as mentors to those entering healthcare leadership. If you have never served as a mentor, you may be missing a very fulfilling opportunity. As a mentor, I have often found it a way to renew my own spirit. To help others gain the confidence and knowledge to lead complicated departments or organizations can be extremely rewarding for those of us that find ourselves dealing with problem solving. It can infuse a sense of purpose and joy to our lives.

If you have interest in being a mentor or a mentee, I encourage you to go to the ACHE website to learn more about the opportunity. Discuss mentor programs with local chapter leadership. Step up and volunteer to mentor new leaders. Do it for them. Do it for you. And, do it for the future of healthcare.

Joann Anderson, FACHE
