Create a Workplace People Want to Stay in with the

Art and Science of Leading Thriving Veterinary Teams Workshop

The average American spends roughly 90,000 hours of their life at work.  In vet med that number might be even bigger.  Work shouldn’t be something we simply survive to get to the good stuff.  A place we spend 30-40% of day at should be part of the good stuff.  The good news is, this isn’t fantasy.  It’s possible to craft positive veterinary workplaces in which the people of vet med thrive.  Science can help!

Based on the AAHA Press book, “Lead to Thrive: The Science of Crafting a Positive Veterinary Culture,” written by Flourish’s own Josh Vaisman, this workshop introduces the evidence-based “4 Ps of Positive Leadership” framework.  Research shows that veterinary practices in which leaders actively cultivate Psychological Safety, Purpose, Path, and Partnership have teams that are more satisfied, higher performing, and happier.  In an age when veterinarians, technicians, and others are hard to come by, what may be most important to hospital leaders is, when the 4 Ps are present, team members are as much as 61% more likely to stay in that job!

In the Art and Science of Leading Thriving Veterinary Teams Workshop, attendees will enjoy at least:


  • Highly interactive workshop experience

  • An understanding of the science of vitalized, enthusiastic human motivation

  • The factors that contribute to workplace wellbeing, and the role leaders play

  • A deep dive into the 4 Ps framework – an actionable set of practices to lead thriving teams

  • Assessment of leaders’ current 4 Ps skills

  • An action plan for amplifying positive leadership strengths

  • OPTION for additional customization to meet your leadership development needs

The truth is, positive leadership isn’t just about feel-good outcomes.  Teams led by positive leaders perform better on almost all business metrics.  It’s truly a two-for-one deal: practicing positive leadership elevates people and performance!  This workshop empowers leaders with the science, art, and skills to bring the joy back to delivering veterinary care.

This workshop is RACE-approved.

Conduct a Flourish KPI Survey to Check the Pulse of Your Team

Leaders can only manage what they can measure, and while businesses have many ways to measure Key Performance Indicators for financial performance, it's a lot harder to measure your staff's well-being. 


Flourish offers a different kind of KPI - the Key People Indicators. Our evidence-based survey gives you a quantified "pulse-check" of your team's workplace experience. 


The Flourish KPI Survey is a great first step in empowering you to cultivate a positive workplace for a thriving team. Schedule a Conversation today to learn how your business can implement this invaluable process.
