How do you respond when a senior executive in your organization asks you, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” Do you risk sounding too ambitious and reply with “I want YOUR job”? Do you sidestep and risk a label of “lacks direction” by saying you’re taking it one step at a time?
Today, we explore how the answer to this question was critical to the career of Seth Teigen, Chief Executive Officer at Providence Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, California. Seth takes us on his career journey, including a story about one of his worst decisions as a new leader, and how an experienced executive advised him never to make a similar mistake again! He also talks about work-life balance, taking advantage of stretch assignments, and how ACHE impacted his professional growth. We hope you enjoy!
