Employee Handbook D-I-RIGHTTM

While a professionally-developed employee handbook is always recommended, practice leaders often make “DIY” updates – without knowledge of current employment regulations or best practices.

Kara helps practice leaders understand what can be updated in an employee handbook, how to make those updates, and what is best left to the professionals.

Attendees will come away from this interactive workshop with the confidence to make updates to their employee handbook, and have it D-I-RightTM.

Management Myths & Fateful Fallacies

With the vast number of regulations at the federal, state, and sometimes local levels coupled with the misinformation found on social media, it’s easy for practice leaders to be confused! Getting it wrong can be disastrously expensive and time consuming. Find out the most common mistakes practices make when crafting policies, making employment decisions, and dealing with those common yet frustrating employee relations issues.

Employing Your Advantage

One of the few, truly unique advantages a practice has is its team. Right now, dentistry is experiencing unprecedented turmoil with skyrocketing turnover rates, artificially inflated salaries, and burnout among its most talented team members. It has never been more crucial to attract, engage, reward, and retain high-performing team members who align with a practice’s core values and drive its culture forward.

The Overthinker’s Circle

Many practice leaders have one in common: they tend to overthink their leadership decisions. Whether they’re afraid of making a mistake, experience information overload, or just plain don’t know what to do, it all ends the same way – indecision, analysis paralysis, and death by delay. Kara helps practice leaders get out of the endless loop of overthinking their employee relations problems with The CLIMB ModelTM for Leadership Decisions.


“Kara presented What to Do if Your Employee Tests Positive for Covid-19 and co-presented Dental Practice Finance Management for the NIAGD via Zoom in 2020. On both occasions she was a well-received, dynamic and organized speaker, who demonstrated a clear grasp of the HR content. She provided clear and easily understood audio-visual aides, answered all questions in a professional manner and invited the attendees to contact her if any additional questions arose after the seminar. She received high praise on the Course Evaluation sheets following both CE Seminars.”

Jamie Petras, NIAGD Executive Secretary
