Team members at veterinary practices everywhere work with managers who occasionally:

  • Get impatient with team members and clients.
  • Exhibit a demanding demeanor.
  • Expect things to be done almost before they ask.
  • Talk to you about what other team members did wrong or need to do differently.
  • Request that team members do personal favors.
  • Want team members to take sides during squabbles or differences in opinion.
  • Ask team members to lie to clients and colleagues for them.
  • Deny that there are problems in the practice.
  • Play the blame game by saying that high team turnover is due to the poor pool of applicants, for instance.
  • Don't take action and allow small problems to snowball into avalanches.
