Sara Potecha


Sara Potecha is an accomplished author, speaker and consultant who has led cultural
transformation initiatives for Fortune 100 and 200 companies and coached hundreds of
leaders to higher levels of performance. A masterful story teller, Sara is a sought-after
speaker on such topics as women in leadership, veteran employment, emotional
intelligence, change, resilience and leadership competency.
Sara began her career as an Army Officer supervising over 300 highly skilled technicians
while stationed in Europe. The technical expertise gained through her military service
served her well when she began her corporate career working in the Information
Technology (IT) department for a large credit card company. However, it was her
leadership skills that propelled her career as she was called upon to address and solve
more complex people issues. Eventually, this led to her to serving as the Director of Change
Management for a mortgage company. Always an entrepreneur at heart, Sara launched
her highly successful management consulting firm in 2014 and most recently added to her
resume by publishing her book and becoming a best-selling author.
In her first non-fiction business book, West Point Woman, Sara delves into fundamental
leadership precepts taught to her at a tender age at the United States Military Academy and
applied in all her varied roles. She captures her audiences through powerful, and often
hilarious, personal stories while teaching her readers how to cultivate the character within.
Sara holds a bachelor’s degree in General Engineering from the United States Military
Academy at West Point and a master’s degree in Organizational Management and
Development from Fielding Graduate University. She credentialed as a John Maxwell
certified speaker and coach and a National Speakers Association (NSA) certified speaker.
When Sara is not speaking, writing or coaching you will find her outdoors – on a bike, a
hike or skiing with her husband and her adult children..
