About The Event

All practice owners, associate DVMs, and practice managers are invited to join us for the 6th annual VHA Leadership Summit, an unforgettable educational event September 17-18, 2023, at Madden's Resort on Gull Lake in Brainerd, MN.

At this members-only, exclusive event, we will dive into "The 4 Ps of Positive Leadership: A Framework for Leading Thriving Veterinary Teams."

You are a leader committed to having a positive impact on your team, someone who wants to energize them around a common purpose. So often, the day-to-day 'fires' get in the way and, in the smoke, we lose sight of what makes leadership meaningful, impactful, and productive. This workshop explores an evidence-based framework for leading thriving teams through the science of positive leadership. Presented in a format any veterinary professional can embrace and effectively implement, the '4 Ps' framework provides leaders with actionable tools to whisk away the smoke and enliven common goals in a way that motivates teams and helps the human beings doing the good work reach toward their best selves. Attendees will leave with tangible, evidence-based practices for enabling the best in the people they lead.

Six CE credits are approved by RACE.

About The Speaker

Josh_2018-009
Josh Vaisman

Leading a veterinary hospital is friggin’ hard work, and Josh understands the struggle first-hand. He has been a proud member of the  veterinary community since 1998. In 2009, he took the leap into practice management and ownership, and continued in those roles in two small-animal hospitals until 2018.

A lifetime optimist and overall “happy guy,” Josh was shocked to find himself feeling spent, alone, and crying over breakfast while his surprised wife looked on with disbelief. Recognizing he had burnt himself out, he made the difficult decision to step away and recapture his authentic self.

Since then he’s dedicated his professional trajectory to elevating veterinary staff and teams so they can authentically flourish in their work.

To that end he’s obtained certificates in areas such as Positive Psychology, Workplace Culture, and Building Effective Teams and a Masters
level education in Applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology. He co-founded Flourish Veterinary Consulting LLC to bring the knowledge he's obtained to life.

Josh lives in Colorado with his amazing wife, 3 insane parrots, 2 rescue pups who occasionally share the king-sized bed, a 7 lb cat known as the “Golden Child,” some fish tanks and a few beehives. In his free time, he enjoys teaching about beekeeping, playing indoor soccer, and dreaming about moving to Kauai.
