Lisa Newburger, a master's level social worker supervisor, helps audiences find humor in talking about tough topics. Her "in-your-face" style of presentations and writing will make you smile or just shock you into taking some action. Either way, she is very effective at empowering others to reach their goals and feel better about themselves. Her entertaining workshops are available for national and international audiences. Writing for the dental industry since 2010, she uses an alterego (Diana Directive) to illustrate her points in a sarcastic but effective way.

Do your employees dread coming to work every day? If so, it may be time to make some changes.
Waking up and being excited to go to work every day is the goal, but for some people, this isn’t always the reality. There seems to be an increase in challenges in the workplace. We hear about workplace violence and know how quickly things can escalate. Fortunately, there are things that can be done to make your practice a friendlier workplace, but it means taking an honest look at what’s going on already. Some of you may be surprised as to how well your practice is operating, while others may be shocked to learn how intense the drama is at work.
What kinds of behaviors can improve the well-being of your staff?
Change isn’t easy, and it isn’t something that everyone will run up to and embrace. Your employees may kick and scream at having to change attitudes, learn new things, or accept new rules, but it will ultimately make such an improvement to how your work family exists together under the same roof. Don’t be scared. Wake up and get excited to go to work.
