Engaging tough communication and conflict is not an easy thing to do, but it is a necessary thing to do. That means that it is worth doing well. The first step though, is agreeing on WHY you want to do it. Who or what are you going to go through that struggle for. If you share that with your team, nothing can stop you.
Then it’s all about try, fall, adapt and improve. There is nothing wrong with trying and falling. That is one of the best ways to learn. But when you fall, you have to collaborate. You have to work with your team in establishing a shared reality, owning your mistakes, giving and accepting forgiveness and then developing inclusive and well rounded solutions and plans.
This episode of the PAWCast is all about the process of collaborating with your veterinary team to understand your problems and communicating your way into great solutions.
You can do this. Your patients need you too.
What are you doing to improve collaboration and communication on your team? Share your story in the comments!
