NOTE: Each group is limited to 18 participants
A Transformational Leadership Program for Veterinarians, 
Vet Nurses, Front of House staff and admin or HR Managers
Chrysalis is a leadership training program designed to transform your veterinary organisation’s key people into highly effective team leaders. Created specifically for your team members, Chrysalis enables participants to clearly identify their strengths and areas for development, learn strategies and skills to ensure they perform at their best, and be ready to take flight in meaningful roles leading and managing your practice.

Chrysalis is much more than a soft skills CPD or feel-good experience. Your team members will develop leadership skills that will change the course of their professional and personal lives. In this three and a half day immersive experience, we combine the best teachings of the Australian Graduate School of Management MBA program, The Royal Military College Duntroon officer training school and many years of operational experience both in the corporate sector and private practice. 
Attendees will emerge from this experience able to effectively
  • ​Give feedback and construct a message so that it strengthens relationships and encourages change – with both team members and clients
  • ​Build a culture of accountability that means they’ll delegate once and it happens every time
  • ​Recognise when delegated tasks are being pushed back onto the leader – and how to stop it happening, for good
  • ​Deal with stress ‘in the moment’ - and how to build resilience so that they can handle it in the long term
  • ​Manage their time effectively with competing priorities
  • ​Differentiate between a ‘training’, ‘performance’ and ‘mental health’ discussion – how to recognise which one is appropriate and how to do them well
  • ​Lead discussions with difficult clients including fee collection and expectation management
  • ​Conduct a great interview (hiring and performance managing)
    Our Chrysalis program will deliver on 
    these outcomes in 6 ways
    We need to change your future leaders’ environment to encourage new thinking. This will take place over 3.5 days of ‘off-site’ training in the Gold Coast led by Paul Ainsworth.
    Knowledge itself has little power – effectively implementing knowledge is the key. Lincoln will enable this throughout the training with 3 months of group coaching.
    Lincoln will get the transformation underway in a week. You will see an immediate uplift in their engagement and productivity on their return and a subsequent lift across the entire team whilst Lincoln holds your leaders accountable.
    Your Future leaders will live and breathe accountability (if they don’t already) and they’ll know how to hold everyone else in your team to account. Lincoln is accountable to ensure that the future leaders return to their practices and implement change.
    The cohort of 24, non-competing, like minded Future leaders will support each other to grow for a long time after the program has completed.
    The investment in the program is outlined below. The Return on Investment is immeasurable in terms of increased engagement, retention, confidence, skill, knowledge, the capacity to get the most from team members and the pipeline of dedicated future leaders for your practice.
