In the current climate where the demand for veterinary service exceeds the veterinary team’s capacity, attracting and retaining top talent is a key factor in your hospital’s financial success. 

Research reveals today’s veterinary team members value more than financial compensation, they want to work for organizations that:

  • Have a strong vision and purpose that aligns with their core values
  • Recognize employees unique situation and offer flexible scheduling and benefits
  • Invest in their people through mentorship and training programs
  • Make health and wellness a priority
  • Are committed to creating a just, equitable workplace
  • Contribute to the greater good of their community, society and the world

Leaders need to create an environment that supports both people and the bottom line.

"Working with Elaine is a true pleasure and has proved to be an immense asset for our international veterinary organization.

Elaine facilitated a 2-day coaching session with our nonprofit board of directors, and she fit in seamlessly not only as a facilitator, but also as a knowledgeable colleague.

Her playful demeanor coupled with an intentional and skillful approach encouraged our team to openly explore our communication styles while making meaningful progress on our strategic development.

Elaine guided us towards improved goal setting by helping us break down big-picture concepts into manageable steps. Achieving this kind of forward momentum can often be challenging with a group of strong leaders, commonly found in nonprofit boards and corporate structures alike.

In our time with Elaine, she helped our team navigate our immediate needs, but more importantly, she helped us better develop our professional toolkit for future decision-making, communication, and intentional growth.

Her infectious positivity, humor, and informed approach made our board training an incredibly valuable use of our time and resources.

We look forward to continued coaching with Elaine and would highly recommend her services to any individual or team wishing to pursue a more effective, congenial, and robust model of leadership."
