About Sarah McVanel
True acceptance is believing people are worthy before they’ve earned it. Imagine a workplace that extends acknowledgement and appreciation to its employees before they even start.
I’m a recognition expert, professional speaker, coach, author, recovering perfectionist, and movement maker of F.R.O.G. Forever Recognize Others’ GreatnessTM. With 25+ years of experience, I invigorate companies to see their people as exceptional so that, together, they can create a scrumptious, thriving culture where everyone belongs.
As the founder of Greatness Magnified, I’m proud to have built a thriving organization that specializes in providing training programs and certifications for employees-at-large. By being equipped to stay positive, solution-focused, and resilient in changing times, they can help to build a healthy and recognition-rich team.
Here’s the fact: recognition is the single, most effective, and cost-efficient way that organizations can decrease burnout, sick time, change fatigue, and hiring costs. The reward? Increased employee retention, safety, innovation, and customer satisfaction... as a starting point. What organization doesn’t need this in a competitive marketplace with a talent shortage?
And it gets better. When you practice recognition in all areas of life, especially at home, it turns even the most difficult challenges and greatest tensions into opportunities to connect, commit, heal, and belong.
