Professional and Personal Wellness Webinar Series
Defining Personal Values, Vision and Mission
April 8, 2018 7:00 pm
Each veterinary team member is a valuable asset bringing a kaleidoscope of experiences and expertise to the table. Understanding your personal values, vision and mission allows you to better recognize how you fit into the larger picture. By creating your personal statements, you have guiding principles that support you in decision making and in reaching your greatest potential. Participants will receive a worksheet to write their own values, vision and mission statement to keep them on their path in personal and professional development.
Leading in your Day and Career
June 13, 2018 12:00 pm
You are aware of your surroundings, realizing each word and deed in the day is leading others and setting you up for success. As the day unfolds, the way you support and encourage in the morning may not be how you inspire in the afternoon. Together we will look at daily habits that ignite each day and grow your career in veterinary medicine.
Accountability, Look in the Mirror
August 22, 2018 12:00pm
Ironically, team members believe accountability begins "out there." In reality, accountability begins by looking in the mirror. "Looking within" can be enlightening and sometimes scary. We will dive into a conversation around personal accountability, healthy habits and self-awareness. Is there any chance of living a fully integrated satisfying life in this age of chaos, uncertainty and ongoing change? Yes, if you are willing to be 100% accountable for your actions, responses and outcomes.
Living Well Tips for the Veterinary Professional
October 14, 2018 7:00 pm
As a team member passionately tending to patients and clients all day, it is equally important you passionately tend to yourself. Together we will look at ways to manage time, take lunch breaks, include physical fitness in your routine and establish healthy boundaries. These self-care tips are habits veterinary professionals can incorporate into their fatigued lives, adding vitality, inspiration and support in their day. Fill your cup! Your patients and clients are depending on you to be good to yourself, first.
