by Myles Chadwick and Marianne Lynch Over the years, we’ve dedicated quite a bit of our time and energy into fine-tuning a system that enables our clinics to increase the volume of surgeries they can do and clients they can see, while always keeping the safety of the patient as the number one concern above […]

by B.J. Rogers Workplace culture, healthy culture, toxic culture. . .blah, blah, blah. There are books, blogs, conferences, and podcasts all about culture. When a term or concept so completely infiltrates the zeitgeist, it can be easy to tune out. And the spirit of the times – in the workplace anyway – is all about […]

by B.J. Rogers Leadership in animal welfare (or anywhere) can be a risky proposition. It’s also powerfully fulfilling and in high demand. To stay “in it” and make an impact, it’s critical that we collect tools to keep ourselves clear-headed and healthy. Though “self-care” sometimes sparks eye-rolls, it doesn’t just mean indulgent investment in a […]

by B.J. Rogers The clock strikes twelve on December 31st and it’s resolution time. Gym memberships sell like crazy and everyone is quitting something (smoking, drinking, eating sweets). Whatever the goal – getting in shape, living healthier – the amazing thing about the start of a new year is what a powerful example it is […]

by B.J. Rogers Whether you’re brand new to supervising, or have been at it for years, no good manager can afford to be without essential tools to do their job well. That’s why we love sharing skills we think rise to the top – and that’ll make your life and the lives of your colleagues […]

by B.J. Rogers We’re leadership nerds at the Emancipet New School – always geeking out about new books, great TED Talks, and the most recent podcast a friend or colleague is keen on. Periodically, we love to share those with you, so. . .a few of our faves below! READ:When two of the things I’m most passionate […]

by B.J. Rogers See if this sounds familiar: Congratulations! You’ve never managed anyone before, nor had any formal training (or any informal training for that matter) in supervision or management. But. . .you’re REALLY great at your current job, so we’re promoting you to manager. . .a role in which you’ll supervise three staff (two […]

Just like humans, pets can strain muscles, have headaches, and even suffer from depression. But of course, they can’t tell us about any of these things. As owners, we should always pay close attention to our pets’ habits and behavior changes, and we can also be proactive in the way we approach their care, too. […]

Don’t worry though – change is good and we’re genuinely pumped about this one! Over the last several years, under the thoughtful leadership of Myles Chadwick, Emancipet New School has become a powerhouse of high-quality training for animal welfare professionals, veterinarians, volunteers, and board members alike. Now, as Myles shifts to a new role focused […]

by B.J. Rogers If you’re like most animal welfare, human service, and social change folks I know, there’s a good chance that what draws you to the work you do is rooted in a genuine desire to help. To make a difference. To leave the world better than you found it. It’s why I’ve so […]

by B.J. Rogers Mission, vision, values, culture. . . pick up a recent business book and there’s a good chance you’ll encounter one or all of these nebulous terms. The problem? Not only is there a lack of agreement about what words like these mean, but the terms themselves are highly conceptual; it’s not always […]

Do you do any type of income qualifying? Are your clinics open on the weekends? These are just a couple of the questions we are asked the most and although they seem simple enough, they’re incredibly important things to be thinking about! Recently we sat down to compile a list of some of our most […]

by Marianne Lynch The concept of social change gets brought up in just about all of our seminars and presentations at Emancipet New School. Whether or not it’s been written into the content doesn’t matter, somehow a conversation always begins that will lead to a discussion about social change, social good, and how the two […]

by Myles Chadwick  I love a good meeting. I love listening to new ideas, sharing my own, and collaborating to create a plan of action. I walk into meetings with a “C’mon gang, lets save the world!” attitude, but this was definitely not always the case. There was a time when I would get a […]

by Myles Chadwick At Emancipet we always hire and manage for culture – check out our webinar and article about these processes! Today we wanted to take a moment to remember why we approach our work with such an emphasis on organizational culture. We talk about culture in many of our workshops, in the office […]
