Our Veterinary Leadership Program in Detail
As a member of the Leaders community, you will benefit from instruction and coaching to help you implement the three crucial systems required for effective team leadership.
Creating your vision
Before you get to work, it is essential to set your course. Creating a compelling vision & strategy document is the secret sauce that separates a good business from the truly great one. In section one you’ll learn how to create one for your practice.
Your hiring process
In order to bring the vision to reality, you are going to need people, good ones and lots of them. Recruitment is a minefield and the number one reason why so many veterinary teams struggle. But fear not, we have a system that will massively increase your chances of making the right hire and positively building your culture.
Your performance management process
Really this should be called your execution or “get sh*t done” process! Execution is how dreams, strategies and tactics become a reality. Good execution is hard to do however and requires an interlinked system that makes it clear what needs to be done, how and when. You’ll learn this system.
Your leadership toolkit
Our final module is where you will learn the actions and behaviours needed of you and all of your team leaders in order to build a just, high performing culture.
When you do the work to combine these elements, your practice will inevitably transform for the better. As you build these systems and grow your leadership skills, your practice, and its culture, will flourish.
What you actually get?
Full access to the entire program and community for a low monthly fee.
Every well-led business has a clearly articulated vision. This is job one for every Leader yet very few practices have this in place. In this module, you’ll learn how to craft a vision statement that works.
Vision without execution is called hallucination. In this session, you’ll learn how to bring your vision to life and weave it through the fabric of your business.
Successful practices understand values and how they drive behaviour. They can articulate these and use them to drive good behaviours and outcomes. You’ll learn how and create your own in this module.
Most individuals do not have a clear expectation of what work they are expected to complete and to what standard. This is remedied by having clearing written objectives for each position. You’ll learn how to do this and create your own.
Next, we cover the performance management cycle, what it looks like, what actions you must take and when. Based on clear communication, regular check-in and good feedback, this system takes all the stress out of performance management.
Understanding human needs and communication preferences is essential for all leaders. Once we understand more about how people work, managing them (even the diffcult ones) gets easier.
Mistake number one is not creating the avatar of your perfect team member for each role. In this engaging session we’ll talk about how to build your avatars then use the details to inform the rest of the hiring process.
How do you write a good job advert that gets results? We answer this question during this session and will have you writing job ads that help attract the right applicant while putting off all the others.
Using testing is a smart way to rule candidates in or out fairly. And most people have no idea how to perform an effective interview. In this session, you’ll learn how to create selection test processes and perform highly effective interviews.
When you hire someone, the job is not done. In fact, it’s just getting started because you still have to get them up to speed fast. In this session, we focus on onboarding new team members, so they become effective fast.
Leaders need a toolkit for success. In this presentation, we’ll focus on what those are and how you should use them.
Generational shift is occurring and it’s causing problems in the workforce. Understanding & overcoming these issues is essential for anyone building a team. Learn the communication skills to help lead millennials.
Time management is something we all struggle with, some of this is unavoidable, but much of it comes down to having poor habits and strategies to manage time. In this eye-opening session, you’ll learn how to create 500 quality hours extra each year with some minimal habit changes.
We talk about this a lot for our clinical team members, but team leaders arguably have it worse, with less support. So how do we toughen our minds so we can show up as the best version of ourselves each day? We’ll formulate your mental toughness plan in this session.
