ACHE-WI 2023-2024 Leadership Development Program (LDP) Cohort XIV kicked off their 2023 Site Visits in Green Bay, spending the morning at BayCare Clinic and then traveling to Prevea Health for the afternoon on June 21st. Our early careerists met with senior leaders and learned about unique aspects of each organization. The group was privileged to participate in engaging discussions with key executives about leadership strategies and gained valuable insights and career advice along with some unexpected swag to remember the inaugural visit as a cohort.
Key takeaways included: Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you. Get to know people and build relationships; take time to understand politics at work and impact on others in the industry. Honor your moral code. Get rid of stupid stuff – “GROSS” (waste). Be curious, not judgmental (leadership tips from Ted Lasso). Advance through Availability – Competency – Behavior. Network and commit to continuing education and mentorship. Don’t be afraid to fail.
The day started at BayCare Clinic Corporate Headquarters with networking and breakfast, prior to interactive sessions with Ashwani Bhatia, MD, FACP, CPE, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Medical Officer; Tony Violetta, MPA, Chief Operating Officer; Karen Miller, MSN, RN, CHPN, Chief Quality Officer; Mike Schmidt, MBA, Director of Marketing & Business Development.
