How to Optimize Performance and Fulfillment
As we emerge from a global pandemic, thousands of employees want a fresh start and new beginning. The Great Resignation is still going strong while new studies show that a majority of employees who’ve already quit their jobs, regret it. They thought they needed to change careers or organizations to be happier again – only to find out a few months later that wherever you go, there you are.

Sarah will share how both companies and individuals can excel in this new world of work where one’s individual identity, priorities, and sources of joy have been questioned and considered more than ever. And one in which a manager’s investment in their direct reports’ emotional well-being, and not just in their performance, is going to make the difference between an organization that survives and one that thrives.

Managing Change: How to gain clarity and take action during uncertain times.
When the only constant thing in life is change, why is it still so challenging for us to manage it? When we think of change management, we think of a robust strategy to regulate the impact of large-scale organizational changes. Yet we, as individuals, when we’re dealing with our own version of massive change, try to manage it by ourselves without a plan or support system in place.
In this workshop, Sarah shows how we can take complex change management practices typically used for organizational change, simplify them, and practically apply them to ourselves to influence our desired outcomes and reduce uncertainty.
You’ll learn how to approach changes in your work and life with the structure and support that you deserve. The more you can be a champion of change, channel your energy into solution-oriented ideas and focus on what you can influence, the more successful outcomes you’ll experience.
All levels – Individuals looking to be more effective in managing both personal and professional changes.
Work Styles: How different ways of working impact individual and team performance.
Each of us has a preferred way of acting, thinking and making decisions. And these preferences may be expressed differently amongst members of virtual and distributed teams. When you understand your behavioral style, you can use this information to lean into your strengths and become an invaluable member of your team.
In this workshop, Sarah shares how having knowledge of your own work style, as well as that of your team members, helps you to increase your performance, build better relationships, and work more collaboratively in diverse teams.
You’ll identify your own work style via an online assessment before the workshop. Sarah will then lead the group in a thought-provoking discussion about how to “flex” your style for better communication with teammates that have different preferences or needs than your own.
Entire teams – Managers and their direct reports that want to enhance their team effectiveness and collaboration by learning to identify each of the four remote work success styles, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to adapt to other styles unlike their own.
