Change is never easy and â€“ especially in a fast-paced clinic environment where so many variables pop up every single day â€“ it can even be destabilizing. Thatâ€™s why Host Nicole Clausen is devoting this episode of The Inventory Nation Podcast to Five Simple Steps to reduce the fear factor when it comes to adopting new systems or processes.
She walks us through practical approaches that will smooth transitions and promote buy-in from team members all along the way. So grab a notepad and hear how you can take the guesswork out of implementing change with some basic strategies (like clear communications, training and positive reinforcement). Itâ€™s all about setting your practice up for seamless, successful adoption over the long haul.
And you might even find your team getting excited because â€“ when executed properly â€“ new SOPs, methods and platforms improve everyoneâ€™s quality of life! â€œAs people who are leading, changing and growing our practices, we have the opportunity to do better than what we had or were given in the past,â€ says Nicole. And how cool is that?

Hi, Iâ€™m Nicole Clausen and I started Veterinary Care Logistics with the dream of changing the way we manage inventory together.
With 14+ years of experience in the veterinary industry, I have worked in several positions from receptionist to operations manager for several different hospitals.
While no two practices are ever just alike, I noticed one common problem: a lack of inventory management and control.
If you are tasked with managing inventory, I understand first-hand the challenges you face.
When I first started managing inventory, I struggled with the same things that many of my clientâ€™s experience: a to-do list up my chin and a pretty persistent case of imposter syndrome. But jolting awake in the middle of the night, wondering if you remembered to order rabies vaccines is no way to live.
I knew something had to change.
Veterinary Care Logistics was born out of the demand by several industry leaders to utilize my inventory system as a model throughout the country. Whenever I tell people what I do, I usually get a puzzled reaction: â€œWhy would you want to do that? I hate inventory!â€ Truthfully, I love the puzzles, the numbers, and the strategies of inventory. But what really sets my soul on fire is creating lightbulb moments.
New clients who often come to me tell me that they feel like theyâ€™re drowning or that they think theyâ€™re just not cut out for this. Then once we start working together, putting systems in place, thereâ€™s always, always an â€œah-haâ€ moment.
And at that moment, a shift occurs. You know exactly what you need to do. Your confidence rises. And the confusion, overwhelm, worry all begin to melt away like a bad, backordered-rabies-vaccine dream.
These are the moments I live for.
