Joanna McGuffeyFounder, Unconventional Works LLC
Joanna is Founder and CEO of a boutique consulting firm focused on Leadership Development, Team Engagement and Workplace Burnout Reduction, specifically Physician Burnout. Joanna founded Unconventional Works on the principle that workplace excellence is not rooted in efficient processes, but in the humans who work there. With a passion for people to know who they are, what they do, and why they do it she desires to empower leaders and teams to have higher expectations. Joanna believes that all people have a desire to make a meaningful impact. This impact is not always huge, but its ripples reach beyond its source. Just because something has always been done a certain way does not mean it has to continue.
