The Veterinary Management Group (VMG) has published its latest Strategic Plan to progress towards its vision of a happy and healthy veterinary world where all benefit from excellent leadership and management. The plan sets out its operational focus for the next three years, together with the tangible outcomes it will prioritise for its members, as well as for the wider veterinary sector.
As the professional association for all those in leadership and management roles in the veterinary sector, the VMG has three strategic priorities:
Rich Casey, VMG President, commented: “Gone are the days of ‘do as I say’ leaders and deep hierarchies. 21st century leadership is about inclusion and flexibility – and never has this leadership been more vital for the sustainability of our sector than it is now as we enter the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Veterinary businesses across the UK are relying on the skills, knowledge and experience of their leaders and managers to guide them successfully through and into the new normal. But it’s important to remember that leaders are not super-human and living up to the expectations on them can be daunting. We are here to provide support and guidance in good times and in harder times too.
“The VMG Board is inspired and energised by the challenges we have set ourselves through our Strategic Plan. We hope our current members are equally excited and that many more will join us on the journey.”
The Veterinary Management Group (VMG) is the professional association for all those in leadership and management roles in the veterinary sector. Our mission is to inspire and empower veterinary leaders and their organisations to learn, share, and grow.
