PAWCast Episode Twenty Five: Peacocking

January 16, 2020

Learning, Earning, Yearning.

This lesson is one that has evaded recent generations, and has had a substantial impact on business growth and development, especially in the veterinary industry. In to many cases, large corporate structures in major metro markets are propping up veterinarians with large salaries presuming that is the ultimate decider of success and wellbeing, not taking into consideration the culture at the practice or the cost of living in the geographic market.

In this episode, we discuss the value in investing in yourself, saving money, and avoid the inefficient and unnecessary peacocking that is occurring all around us, all with the intention of serving the patient more effectively.

PAWCast Episode Twenty Four: The Industry is Dead

January 9, 2020

The Veterinary Industry is dead.

At least as we know it.

In this episode, we discuss how a lack of availability and affordability has created a system that can't support either high quality or high quantity of patient care, and how it is time for change. It is time to get out the hurricane.

PAWCast Episode Twenty Three: Creating Value

PAWCast Episode Twenty Three: Creating Value

January 2, 2020

One thing that we have found to be very lacking industry wide is the ability to create and to communicate value within the clinic setting. So much of what a veterinarian and the medical team does can be taken for granted and lead to very undesirable results for both the caregiver and the staff.

In this episode, we, with our special guest Dr. Caroline Rauschendorfer, talk about how to create value in multiple ways to not only justify what caregivers are spending their money on, but also to help combat the consistent mental health issues we see on our teams.

PAWCast Episode Twenty One: ‘Unicorn Practice’

PAWCast Episode Twenty One: ‘Unicorn Practice’

December 19, 2019

A new term was recently brought to our attention. A ‘unicorn clinic’, also known as a workplace that everyone enjoys to come to and gains fulfillment through.

This idea, along with some others around it, are some of the most detrimental to our industry. To believe that a great workplace is so rare that it doesn’t really exist is truly sad, and also false.

This week we discuss this ideas as well as many more.

PAWCast Episode Nineteen: Empowering Individual Success

December 5, 2019

Following up on the common type of performance management, this week we discuss the 5/15 model and how that process creates opportunities for growth on a consistent, weekly basis.

It also allows your staff the chance to fail in a controlled manner, letting them learn as well as limiting any major damage to your operation. This week, we take some time to learn how the 5/15 works and why it is valuable to you, your team and your clinic.

PAWCast Episode Seventeen: Growth Focused Performance Management

PAWCast Episode Seventeen: Growth Focused Performance Management

November 8, 2019

If you have even the idea of performance reviews, are you doing them properly?

In this weeks episode, we discuss the substantial efforts included in growth focused performance management and how that process allows us to improve performance and efficiency with staff across the clinic. This focus on the individual allows our team members to be autonomous in their performance growth plans and to only worry about daily improvement, not their place as it compares to the rest of the team.

In this episode, we review the concepts included in growth focused performance management as well as the performance vs. potential grid and how to use the tool effectively.

PAWCast Episode Sixteen: Teamcrafting

PAWCast Episode Sixteen: Teamcrafting

November 1, 2019

If you could build a dynamic team, focused on enhancing individual strengths and heading off conflict before it ever happens, wouldn't you do it?

In this weeks episode, we discuss the deliberate "Teamcrafting" that we do using psychometric data, and how that information allows us to hire, onboard, manage and grow individuals, regardless of behavioral patterns and motivations. This focus on the individual allows our team members to be autonomous in their critical roles and tasks as the management team, as they have already been positioned for success based on their individual traits.

In this episode, we review all the parts of the Tri-core Assessment and how we use those variables in 'Teamcrafting' to maximize on our strengths, and isolate our weaknesses.
