CNAR’s Winter Workshop 3: Impactful Leadership in a Dynamic Regulatory World

Updated: Feb 21

Workshop #3: Impactful Leadership in a Dynamic Regulatory World

What are the implications of a dynamic environment on professional regulatory leadership? How must regulatory leadership evolve to ensure regulators of professions continue to be effective and relevant in the future? What leadership qualities and competencies are needed for impactful regulatory governance in dynamic times?

Dr. Mike Saks, Emeritus Professor at the University of Suffolk, UK, and Honorary Professor at the University of Lincoln and the University of Westminster, UK and the University of Toronto, Canada, will open the workshop with a session on Responsible Leadership, Professions, and the Public Interest. Dr. Saks’ presentation will be informed by his extensive research and work with regulators, governments, universities, and corporations in the United Kingdom and globally, as well as with the United Nations as Chair of the Institute for Responsible Leadership. During this session, he will unpack and explore different interpretations of responsible leadership and what good governance practices for regulators acting in the public interest can look like. Attendees will be invited to reflect on their own leadership philosophies and styles, while exploring opportunities for responsible leadership and the enhancement of effective regulation in the public interest. This session will include a presentation, group discussion, and Q & A.

In the second part of the workshop, a panel from the regulatory community will discuss leadership styles and competencies in professional regulation for changing times. Panelists will explore leadership qualities and competencies needed for effective regulatory governance in times of dynamic change and consider future directions for regulatory leadership. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with the panelists during the Q & A. The discussion will be moderated by Bradley Chisholm, Principal & Founder, The Regulator’s Practice, with panelists:

  • Claire Ramlogan-Salanga, Chair of Council, College of Midwives of Ontario (CMO), Registered Midwife, and Assistant Professor, Midwifery Education Program, McMaster University

  • Daniel Faulkner, Registrar & CEO, Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO)

  • Wilda Listener, Chair, Indigenous Social Work Committee and Council Member, Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW), and Dean of Indigenous Social Work, Maskwacis Cultural College

While all in the regulatory community are welcome, this workshop may be of particular interest to management and senior management of regulatory bodies, Board/Council members of regulatory bodies, and senior staff who support Boards/Councils.
