Daring Veterinary Leadership event to host free follow-up session open to new delegates

Veterinary Woman and XL Vets are organising a free follow-up meeting for delegates

Veterinary Woman and XL Vets are
organising a free follow-up meeting for delegates of the ground-breaking “Daring Veterinary Leadership” event, which took place in April. The event
included networking, role model sessions, and breakouts facilitated by trained
coaches, in addition to the main Dare to Lead workshop. Tickets can still be purchased to
watch the event back, receive a copy of the Dare to Lead book by Brené Brown, and join the follow-up meeting 7.30pm 30 June.

Polls conducted at the start and conclusion of the six-hour virtual
conference showed the delegates’ belief in their ability to get the best out of
both themselves and their team increased during the course of the event. The
polls asked on a scale of 1-10: Do you think you know how to get the best from
your team or colleagues / yourselves? The average score increased from 6.7 to
7.9 for getting the best out of the team, and from 7.1 to 8.2 for getting the
best from themselves.

Kerrie Hedley, COO of XLVets,
said “Research has shown that courageous leadership is teachable,
observable and measurable. We are delighted to see signs of this global
movement towards daring leadership being embraced within the veterinary world.
We want to continue the conversation and provide some peer accountability to
encourage all attendees to action some first steps in their working lives.
Coming together again to discuss the progress we’ve made in the eight weeks
following the event should provide a stepping stone to further actionable steps
to really grow and put this into practice.”

A mentorship scheme was also
launched at the event. Individuals happy to mentor or be mentored are invited
to sign up online.

The event, which achieved an
overall rating of 4.9 out of 5 from attendees, also featured 21 role model
stories from key inspirational figures, including presidents of veterinary
organisations, business owners, leaders within industry and practice, and
referral hospital founders. 86 percent said they’d definitely recommend the event to
friends and colleagues, with the remaining 14 percent agreeing they probably would.

Tickets can be purchased
at online.
Individuals interested in engaging with the leadership conversation are
encouraged to join the Veterinary
Women in Leadership
Facebook community.
