Clayton Mitchell, SVP of Real Estate and Facilities at Jefferson Health: Improve Lives While Healthcare Thrives
Clayton Mitchell (Mitch) has a passion for leadership, much attributed to his years spent in the US Navy as he was able to look up to the great leaders surrounding him. He learned that it takes 3 major elements to being a leader: vision, communication, and character. These skills come to play in navigating conflict—a type of conversation that is often failed to be mentioned when it comes to discussing the healthcare industry. Health + Wellness expert at WD, Dan Stanek, points out that discussions surrounding healthcare tend to be collegial. In this episode, Dan & Mitch open up the conversation to critical, and often overlooked topics in the industry including its changing footprint, rethinking its structure, and how other industries can help inform it.
