Lack of Employee
Research shows U.S. employee engagement is on the decline. Let’s work together to make sure your workplace is an exception to this
78% of employees experience burnout sometimes. Creating supportive, strengths-focused teams increases team collaboration while reducing burnout and stress.
44% of managers feel overwhelmed at work due to lack of training. Give your managers the training they need and ensure their success as well as your organization’s.
Maximizing Your Team’s Natural Strengths
Do you know what makes each member of your team unique? When you tap into the unique strengths of your team, you unleash everyone’s full potential while simultaneously maximizing the collaborative potential of the team. The world tells us to “work on our weaknesses.” Science tells us to make the most of what we already do well and partner with others who can fill in our gaps.
Participants will learn to:
- Harness their unique talents
- Leverage the shared strengths of the team
- Create productive, strengths-based partnerships

Our world and how we define “inspiring leadership” has changed dramatically in the last decade. Do your leaders have the new playbook to navigate the evolving rules of the leadership game? Sarah’s presentation—based on organizational behavior (OB) research, as well as 17 years of teaching OB to college students—reveals how outdated leadership practices can undermine employee engagement, and how more effective and modern leadership techniques can reignite their team.

Founder, President, Author
Sarah has spent her entire career measuring, studying, and advising leaders on how to increase employee engagement and build better teams. She landed her first gig while still in graduate school. The rest is history.
For seventeen years, Sarah taught an organizational behavior class at IUPUI while simultaneously growing her business. Sarah retired from teaching to address a reoccurring (and haunting) question from her students: “Why doesn’t my manager know this information?”
Sarah has written two books, Unstuck at Last: Using Your Strengths to Get What You Want and Fresh Leadership: Five Skills to Transform You and Your Team. These publications prove that Sarah is both a glutton for punishment and determined to share her knowledge at significant personal sacrifice.
Sarah is among the first seven people to become a Gallup Certified Coach in the world.
Fresh Concepts is certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) in Indiana.
