Thriving in Times of Chaos by Randy Hall | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Videos

May 2024

In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education video, Randy Hall, a consultant and leadership expert who helps veterinary practices, explains why veterinary hospitals feel like they’re in a constant state of chaos. And it’s not unreasonable to feel that way, sometimes. Feeling like we’re in our default mode of survival and getting through those days can feel like a challenge that repeats over and over. It’s exhausting! But fortunately, there are a few things we can do to help us progress along the way, and even thrive during these difficult times.

  • Put our brains in a “toward state,” where instead of reacting to chaos, we are proactively looking forward
  • Set goals as we’re in our toward state and put plans in place to achieve them
  • Set aside time every week to recharge and do things we enjoy

It’s critical that we, as leaders, remember these things throughout the week. If we’re not at our best, it will be hard to help our team be at their best.
