They asked Andy and Stephanie: “How do I help them self-reflect a little better and to take ownership of things rather than blame it on something or someone else?” Get ready for some serious discussion on how clear is kind. We will also cover the basics of how people are motivated when it comes to accountability. Ultimately, Andy and Stephanie agree that you can’t fix anyone, they have to fix themselves.

October 21-23: Uncharted Culture Conference, Virtual
Culture is the heart of what makes your practice unique. It’s the blend of personalities, passions and processes that give your team a sense of belonging. It creates a clear understanding of what people can expect from their jobs and what’s expected of them. Culture can build up a practice into the place everyone in town wants to work, or more quickly break it down into the place no one wants to apply.
Every veterinary clinic has a culture — are you being intentional in choosing what yours will be?
