Partnering meaningfully is one of our values and it’s why we’ve decided to delay applications for the EXTRA: Executive Training program. Cohort 18 applications will open in fall 2022, instead of spring 2022.
We reached this decision after careful consultation and conversations about meeting you where you are. After two years of coping with the pandemic as healthcare leaders, we understand you need time to recover before focusing on capability building.
Why we made this decision
Joining EXTRA is an investment in yourself, your team and organization. We hope this delay will allow you to prepare for this investment and its benefits: sharing pan-Canadian perspectives, participating in events (virtual, in-person), collaborating across teams and receiving coaching and peer support.
Ways to stay connected
In the meantime, here are some ways to stay connected with the EXTRA program and other learning and development opportunities at HEC.
- Talk with an EXTRA Coach for pre-application guidance by emailing EXTRA-FORCES@hec-esc.ca.
- Check out upcoming activities to have purposeful conversations with people across the country.
- Visit the EXTRA webpage and explore past cohorts and projects to learn more about the program.
We’re excited to hear about your proposed projects and hope that the coming months brings you time to rest, heal and recover. We hope delaying applications is one way we can support you as we move through the next stages of the pandemic.
