05/22/19 Decisions, Decisions — All the Tools You Need to Make the Tough Calls
Recorded On: 05/22/2019
We must consider many factors when making animal care, treatment and outcome decisions to meet the needs of all our stakeholders.
In this webinar, we introduce an easy-to-use, balanced, three-pronged decision-making model that considers what is in the best interests of the animal, the organization, and the people engaged. When we make decisions that meet each of these critical needs areas, the whole community benefits. The presentation is interactive and fast-paced, and uses real-life examples to help participants from agencies of all sizes and philosophies easily relate. Join us if you’d like barrier-busting strategies to conquer nay-sayers. We will expand your critical thinking and boost your leadership skills. Bonus! Attendees will receive the model overview, tips and tricks for incorporating the model, and tools for implementing.
This session is designed to reach people at all levels of any size organization.
