Why your veterinary team may be disengaged
Bash Halow, CVPM, LVT, shared why trusting your gut is key to understanding why your team members are disengaged.
During his talk at the 2021 Fetch dvm360® Kanas City conference, Bash Halow, CVPM, LVT, owner of Halow Consulting, opened the session by asking attendees if they had an idea behind why they felt their employees were disengaged, and the response was overwhelming. In a dvm360® interview, Halow disclosed that every person in the room had an idea as to why their team members were disengaged, and every single one was right.
“Presumably, these [attendees] are [at the lecture] because their employees are disengaged, and yet, I open the session with, ‘do you have any idea why your employees are not engaged?' They could have filled up the entire lecture with their ideas—every single one of which was right as to why their employees are [not] engaged," said Halow.
He noted that although there are a plethora of reasons as to why your employees could be disengaged, trusting your gut is an invaluable tool that can help you recognize the problem and strive for a solution.
“My suggestion to you is if your gut is telling you that you know why your team members are [disengaged] listen to your gut and then bring the crew together and talk about ways to remedy that,” Halow advised.
