The Strengths Now Team

Women's Business Enterprise Certified.

Sara Regan, the founder of Strengths Now, became a strengths enthusiast in 2005 when she was first introduced to her own Top 5 strengths. Realizing some of her strengths were underutilized, she consciously leaned into her talent areas and found it had a profound impact on her own career trajectory, as well as the performance of the teams she managed. After becoming a Gallup Certified StrengthsFinder Coach in 2013, she launched her own consulting firm. Proudly, in 2021, Strengths Now earned the distinction as a Certified Women Owned Business. Here’s a look at the team today!

Sara Regan, CEO

Sara was one of the first dozen people worldwide to become a Certified CliftonStrengths Coach by the Gallup Organization. Soon after, she launched her own consulting firm to help others solve their toughest workplace challenges using this powerful model. She is a seasoned coach, facilitator, and organizational development specialist. Sara has helped thousands of people to leverage their unique talents and have greater impact and meaning in their work. Clients appreciate her ability to zero in on what is getting in the way and help them create a pathway forward.

Sara’s passion lies in creating custom solutions that lead to lasting culture change. With nearly 25 years of experience facilitating team sessions, she is able to create conditions for honest conversations where everyone can let their guard down. In turn, teams are able to identify the barriers to collaboration and performance and begin to break through old patterns. Oftentimes she serves as a “strengths translator” who can jump start communication and understanding in critical partnerships.

Sara is eager to help others find their own unique leadership path and humbled to be a part of their journey. She has dedicated her career to studying what the best leaders do differently. Her 20 years of experience in successive leadership roles has given her firsthand knowledge of what it is like to stand in a leader’s shoes.

Sara has received certification from Gallup’s High-Performance Management Course and the Accelerated Strengths Coaching Course. Sara has a Master’s degree in Psychology from Northeastern University and has done extensive research on leadership, management, and organizational behavior. She served as an associate dean at Berklee College of Music, where she worked for 12 years.

Sara’s Top 5 Strengths are: Strategic, Relator, Individualization, Connectedness, Learner.
