Just one thing: Practical tips for veterinary practices

Leadership for any organization is vital to short- and long-term success. At its core, leadership is about championing a vision for the future, motivating teams, and creating a positive environment. 

Like any skill, effective leadership requires professional development. Gathering feedback and insights from the entire team to identify areas of need, then developing those skills collectively, can empower everyone and drive team effectiveness.

You can get started in just 15 minutes. Identify and enroll yourself, or another leader in your hospital, in a leadership training course that fits the needs of your team.

For example: If tackling team burnout and work stress is a priority, then you can sign up to participate in an AVMA-sponsored training program led by top professionals from Cornell University. This training focuses on teaching managers to identify and address root causes of burnout, and it’s part of a clinical trial study that will also garner feedback from team members to ensure the interventions are achieving results. 

Explore other leadership courses available through AVMA Axon®, including these popular sessions from the 2023 Veterinary Leadership Conference. Taking the first steps of identifying and signing up for leadership training is key to increasing team success now and in the future.
