Episode 53 – Utilizing Transformational Leadership to Make a Positive Change in Veterinary Medicine featuring Dr. Andrew Ciccolini

When you think of amazing leaders throughout history, there’s a good chance you’re thinking of someone who has enacted transformational leadership. Today we get to learn all about the pillars of transformational leadership – what it’s made of, why it can be so beneficial, and what some of the downsides might be in this interview with Dr. Andrew Ciccolini. Andrew is just wrapping up his Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership and so generously shares his insight with us. Veterinary medicine is definitely in need of this leadership style, so let’s all pay close attention!

Let me know your thoughts!

I’m Stacey

I want veterinarians to become happier, healthier, wealthier and more grateful for this life that we’ve created.

I understand the struggles of a stretched-too-thin veterinarian. I have also learned that with some individual work, there is a brighter side to veterinary medicine. Personal and financial development strategies have helped me find a happier place in my life and in my work. I hope to share resources that will resonate with my fellow veterinarian to allow you to become a more whole person.

Episode 63 – State of The Union on Equine Veterinary Practice in 2023 with Kelly and Misty

FUN NEW FORMAT! Listen in as Misty, Kelly and I discuss our opinions on some hot topics in equine vetmed at the moment. We are all working in spaces of equine veterinary medicine that allow us to hear from the trenches, so we brought up just a couple of things that we have been hearing a lot about lately….and we didn’t get to several major topics because there is just so much to digest. SO, if you like this format (AND if you have thoughts to add!) let me know and we will do it again and potentially throw in some guest comments or questions!
