Ten participants will be selected from the applicant pool to participate in the Power of Ten leadership academy. Participants will join a network of peers in a series of learning experiences that commence in October, 2016 and culminate in September, 2017. Power of Ten is a pathway to help recent graduates answer questions like:
- I 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?”
We anticipate that the Power of Ten class will also create a sense of community and participants will likely 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 resources. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a listserv, webinars, and other special offerings exclusive to the Power of Ten.
Dr. Jeff Fankhauser and Dr. Joy Fuhrman – two CVMA members recognized for their leadership, communication, and business skills – are the Power of Ten curriculum coaches. They’ll be assisted by a team of 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 CVMA Convention 2017, where Power of Ten Leadership Academy graduates will be recognized. CVMA will provide food for gatherings, coaches and the curriculum team, and two nights lodging for the initial gathering in Breckenridge; participants are otherwise responsible for their own lodging if needed and for transportation to all learning experiences.
