About Us

Michelle Harcha, DVM, MA
Leadership, Communication, and Emotional Intelligence Training and Development

Michelle Harcha, DVM, MA has over 30 years experience in the veterinary profession. Her unique combination of professional experience includes 10 years in clinical practice, 12 years in a variety of roles at Hill’s Pet Nutrition, and 10 years in academia leading the Professional Development curriculum for veterinary students at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Her passion for communication training began when she worked in a veterinary emergency clinic. It was in this environment that she became certified in Everything DiSC® and saw how this assessment and communication skills made a huge impact working with and managing veterinary healthcare teams and improving the client experience. After completing several veterinary specific communication courses, the Institute for Healthcare Communication faculty training and the FRANK™ training, she led the development of a comprehensive applied communication curriculum at Ohio State.

In 2017, she formed LeadYourShip, LLC to bring her experience in communication, leadership skills, and emotional intelligence to the veterinary profession.

Our Solutions

  • Leadership

    How do you define leadership? Leaders create a shared vision for organizations that drive team members to engage in achieving success.

    Leadership begins with you. You have to understand yourself well before you can lead others. Leadership includes understanding and managing self, developing social awareness and emotional intelligence, and handling conflict productively.

    The success of any organization depends on the leadership skills of everyone on the team.
    One solution for creative leadership can be found in utilizing the Everything DiSC® Workplace® Profile. This assessment provides leaders with an understanding of their leadership style. In addition, it demonstrates how to adapt their leadership style to manage teams and communicate more effectively.

    In addition, MyEverythingDiSC.com offers people access to insights about their DiSC® style and the styles of others. This includes comparison reports and strategies for applying DiSC to real work situations.

  • Communication

    Communication skills are an essential – and often under-developed - business skill set. They provide a foundation for an effective work environment with staff and colleagues, as well as a way to enhance the client experience.

    In addition to utilizing the Everything DiSC® Workplace® Profile, I focus on the eight core communication skills that help veterinary healthcare teams develop better relationships within their team and with their clients. The eight core skills include: 1) open-ended questions; 2) reflective listening; 3) empathy; 4) non-verbal communication; 5) pausing; 6) chunk and check; 7) sign posting, and 8) summary.

    I can help your veterinary healthcare team learn to work more effectively with each other and enhance your clients' experience.

  • Emotional Intelligence

    Emotional intelligence explores the relationship between understanding yourself and understanding your social networks as a crucial means of achieving success in life and work. The Everything DiSC® Workplace® Profile can enhance individuals’ understanding of themselves as well as offer a way to understand others. Veterinary healthcare team members must begin with understanding and managing themselves, demonstrating empathy, and then communicating with others.

    As Deepak Chopra says, “I cannot change what I’m not aware of.” The Everything DiSC® Workplace® Profile can help increase the emotional intelligence of individuals wherever they work .
