Whilst financial success can provide a short term basis for our motivation and well-being, long term satisfaction is only likely to be achieved if there is harmony between our personal values and goals and our professional objectives, and we are content with the place that our profession occupies within our lives. Bradley Viner
What does success in veterinary practice mean to you and how do you hope to achieve it? Going much further than a practice management book, Success in Veterinary Practice will help you to find your answers to the big questions:
- How will you achieve your goals in your veterinary career?
- How do you uphold your professional values in a commercial world?
- How can you improve your work-life balance?
Bradley Viner guides you on the development and application of skills and traits needed to improve the quality of care that your practice offers to your clients and patients, the working environment that the business offers to the whole practice team, and your own well-being.
This book provides a framework for reflection, raising questions that will help you to think more closely about what you do, how you do it, why you do it, and how you could do it better. Key concepts discussed include: being proactive, measuring outcomes, change management, team leadership, and effective communication.
Drawing on the author’s mix of hands-on experience and academic study, Success in Veterinary Practice will help veterinary practitioners at all levels of their career to develop skills that they can apply to both personal and practice development. Those who work closely with veterinarians, as well as those aspiring to a career in this field, will gain useful insight into the challenges faced.
