It’s Better than OK to be Imperfect; Let’s Talk Trust & Vulnerability

Rebecca Rose, CVT, Certified Career Coach

Veterinary team members may be hung up on the unrealistic pretense of having to be perfect (perfect family, perfect job, perfect life, etc.). Every day, within the walls of the veterinary hospital, there are calculations, conversations and projects that must be completed with a high standard of excellence.

Yet every day there are opportunities for mishaps. The fear of failure and of being less than perfect must not paralyze and overshadow a team. Trust and vulnerability may provide the needed safety net. “I need help” and “I apologize” may be statements in vulnerability building trust, improving the dynamics of the team.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize perfection and fear of failure is the recipe for a poor culture
  • Discuss the building of trust on veterinary teams
  • Assess the strength of vulnerability in the words “I need help”
