Discernment

DiscernmentAs Catholic Health Care leaders, we work to link discernment to strategic decision-making, innovation, and team composition. Discernment is a hallmark activity of the Catholic Health Care heritage.

Integrating discernment practices throughout an organization is a sign of its Catholic identity and means:

  • Listening and cooperating with the spiritual energies that are luring situations into greater unity and dignity,
  • Taking time to persuasively and effectively connect strategic decision-making to mission and values,
  • Contributing to continuous quality improvement and developing innovative responses to a new set of circumstances,
  • Identifying individual gifts and talents and connecting them to other gifts and talents in order to foster creative work groups.
