Bulldawg Leadership Experience for Delegates and Presidents

In a climate where the well-being of professional students in veterinary curricula is seemingly of utmost concern to those who make decisions, it can be challenging as a veterinary student to navigate doing well in school while also taking care of one’s self when the decisions made seem contrary to well-being. In this interactive workshop, you will learn the skill sets necessary to begin to have influence in a way that brings about positive change. Activities and discussion around leadership, influence, and self-awareness will help attendees go back to school ready to make a healthy difference without becoming β€œthat” student.

Bulldawg Leadership Experience - Cracking the Perfectionism Code So We Can Create A Culture of Learning and Growth

Our profession is facing a serious crisis of well-being. We are burned out, tired, experiencing compassion fatigue, and struggling to find our way to healthy life balance. Through our training, we have developed a fixed mindset that is further solidified with perfectionism, both strategies that are not helpful in our success. It is critical for us, whether students, faculty or staff, to model and teach those we work with an effective approach to growth and development in the profession. Using the work of Carol Dweck, Brene Brown, and Simon Sinek, this workshop will explore the skill sets required for a healthy approach to learning and growth in a profession that requires resilience for success. We will also discuss how to build a supportive team environment. A key component of the workshop will be self-awareness around the concepts discussed.
