WSVMA accepting applications for next year’s class of Power of Ten leaders

  |   WSVMA News

Attention 2010-2017 graduates! Join the WSVMA for our exciting leadership program! Power of Ten is a WSVMA initiative designed to help recent graduates develop foundational skills in leadership, communication, and business. Ten participants will be selected from the applicant pool to participate in the Power of Ten leadership academy for the coming year. Participants will join a network of peers in a series of learning experiences that commence in October, 2017 and culminate in September, 2018. Power of Ten is a pathway to help recent graduates answer questions such as:

  • I’ve emerged from veterinary school and I’m in practice — but how can I get a better grasp on what makes me tick?
  • Now that I have a technical staff, how can I form, manage and lead an effective team?
  • Who am I in the bigger picture, and what can I give to my family, my community, and my profession that will be my legacy?

Participation in the Power of Ten class, partially sponsored by Elanco, creates a spirit of community and participants build lasting bonds with other members of the leadership academy class.

In-person learning experiences are scheduled to minimize the impact on working hours — and the entire program is designed to garner support from practice owners who recognize their key responsibility in developing human potential.

Dr. Lindsey Hornickel, recognized for her leadership within the veterinary profession, is the curriculum coach. She’ll be assisted by subject matter experts, veterinary mentors, and certified facilitators in helping Power of Ten participants grow through in-depth, high-impact learning experiences.

Participants will receive full tuition scholarships to the program — plus complimentary registration to WSVMA’s Pacific Northwest Veterinary Conference 2018 in Tacoma, where Power of Ten Leadership Academy graduates will be recognized.
