You could be the next dvm360/VHMA Practice Manager of the Year. All it takes is a short survey, a few thoughtful responses ... and, yes, a willingness to fight past your natural humility and tell us what you've done to make happy team members, to grow revenue and to create a healing environment in your veterinary practice.

Now dive in!
You don't need charisma to be a great leader. Be your "authentic self" as a leader in your veterinary hospital and see what happens. (Unless your authentic self is horrible, and then watch this video to fix yourself, please.)
