A rare blend of analytical entrepreneur and perceptive warmth, Sara Canaday has a unique gift for helping high-potential professionals to achieve their best. Sara began her journey working full-time while she earned an MBA. As she climbed the ladder of corporate America, she repeatedly observed a surprising phenomenon: the most successful people weren't necessarily the ones with the highest IQ or best job skills. She recognized instead that career advancement was much more closely linked with how people applied their knowledge and talents -- their capacity to collaborate, communicate, and influence others. Because of this revelation early on, Sara developed an uncanny ability to pinpoint the pivotal attributes that could make or break a career, and she was able to convey that information in a compassionately candid way. Colleagues, subordinates, and superiors alike frequently approached Sara for her advice on overcoming career hurdles and developing strategies to increase their personal market value. Despite reaching an executive position in operations with a major company, Sara realized that helping others to maximize their career potential was truly her life's work. Today, Sara is happily fulfilling that commitment as a speaker, consultant, coach, author, and owner of her rapidly growing firm, Sara Canaday & Associates. This venue has given her the opportunity to mentor and support thousands of people in diverse situations, inspiring many of them to move from insight to action with dramatic career results. Sara lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband Brandon, her daughter Taylor, and her son Cole. She proudly follows the same advice she shares with her clients: be honest with yourself, never stop finding ways to improve, and – if all else fails -- head to Starbucks for a Double Mocha Latte with extra whipped cream.

Growing up in Marine Corps family with my 4 brothers taught me the power of cooperation and compromise. My father (Col. D.M. Black, USMC, Ret.) instilled uncompromising character and integrity, my mother added a healthy dose of caring and understanding. Living in 16 different states and two countries gave me perspective and made me adaptable. So, at my core, I am a teacher AND a learner. I have an uncanny ability to identify best practices and share them with others in a way that makes sense for them. I am always striving to improve. I work hard but remember to enjoy this journey that is life. As habits, I say "thank you" to military personnel, I stand for the National Anthem, I don't like horror movies but enjoy a great comedy, I make mistakes and learn from them, I love doing yard work but detest making the bed. My greatest satisfaction in business comes from my clients sharing or showing how they achieved personal success based on an idea that was generated in a talk or class.
