Program Details

Working With Unhappy Clients During COVID-19 (M. Tompkins)
Clients are more grouchy, short tempered, and impatient.  Why?  Maybe because we are in a pandemic and they are stressed to the max.  We must remember to put ourselves in the client’s shoes before judging them or reacting to them.  In this this presentation, we review what we are doing, or not doing, to help clients during this difficult time and how we can be better. 

Coaching, Reviews and Feedback (A. Crabtree) 
Learn more about how to KEEP the employees you already have (and want) through proper coaching, Performance Evaluations that MEAN something, and quick feedback techniques that will leave your staff craving more. Learn how and when to give raises, or not. Most of all, learn ways to get your employees engaged and take ownership of their own performance through professional development. 

Compassion Fatigue for Veterinary Professionals (M. Tompkins)
Burnout is very common in the veterinary field.  Our doctors and team members suffer from incredible loss daily and it takes its toll.  I created this presentation to help team members deal with this problem. The focus of the talk is to discuss burnout, secondary traumatic stress, and compassion fatigue.  I help the team understand what the symptoms are, how to identify if they are experiencing any of them, and what to do to improve or even prevent them.  I also use the quality-of-life questionnaire to help the team understand if they are experiencing burnout, secondary traumatic stress, or compassion fatigue.  And most importantly we talk about some solutions, and I give them the tools to make it better.
