This week, Dr. Andy Roark and Practice Management Goddess Stephanie Goss dive into the mailbag:
“There seems to be a gathering “clique” problem on our team. To be honest, I've seen it forming/happening but to be really really honest, I haven't acted soon enough or swiftly because it involves me. There are three assistants, the newest associate vet, and myself who have more and more solidified one another as fast friends and at times will socialize outside of the clinic.
I generally did not see our friendship as disruptive or outside of appropriate until in the past month two different team members have stated that they have concerns about a clique issue. I'm beyond mortified to have anyone feel excluded or “other” in a way that concerns them at work. That being said, I'm having a hard time seeing what behaviors are bothersome because I don't think, as objectively as I can be, that we're being catty or toxic or gossipy or Mean Girls like, other than always wearing pink on Wednesdays (ok jk just had to throw that in there)”
