Curriculum

Section 1: Using book studies to develop your managers.
01:16

Hi, My Name is Sarah Andreas, our vison for Red Oak Connections is to create a learning environment where leadership growth is the focus. For the past 10 years I have been focusing on leadership & personal development in different ways and people. In my full time job, I work for Mike and Franscene Davis within their dealer network, which includes: Adventure Harley-Davidson, Mad River Harley-Davidson, Rubber City Harley-Davidson and Rock-n-Roll Harley-Davidson. I have an MBA from Malone University, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt from Kent State University, Registered Corporate Coach from Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC)® and I am a DiSC certified trainer.

I have been blessed with an opportunity to have influenced close to 200 individuals through training and development initiatives within the dealerships. Many people want to move into a new role or careers fail to make the move because of a skills gap. My focus is on helping train managers and individuals to identify the skills gap and build a bridge using strengths to allow movement. My true passion is helping leaders find their leadership strengths and helping to educate them. I love creating online classes that allow me to expand my influence wider than I could have ever dreamed!
