We become BETTER leaders simply by MAKING CHANGES in critical areas.

It really is as simple as that.

Who is the Leadership Reformation?

It's Me. It's You. It's Everyone Who is Ready to Make Positive Changes in the Workplace.

Sara Baker, Ed.D.

Hi, I'm Sara, the founder of the Leadership Reformation. For almost two decades, I have helped develop others into positive, high-performing leaders.

In doing so, I realized my greatest sense of accomplishment comes not only when leaders become happier, more fulfilled and more successful, but also when their teams are happier, more fulfilled and higher-performing.

It's a chain reaction that makes my heart happy. And it's the reason I created the Leadership Reformation with proven and actionable support and resources for leaders.

My Story

I was the first in my family to go to college, ending up with three degrees:  Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and a Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership.

I loved school and I love learning! My life was transformed by teachers who took the time to invest in me. So, of course, I became a teacher. I was convinced I could save the world, one student at a time..

I loved teaching, but quickly realized I wanted to positively influence a larger number of students. So I moved into a leadership role and never looked back.

Leadership isn't easy, but over the years I worked through the challenges and saw positive results with my teams. My passion became helping others become leaders, so that life-changing opportunities were opened up, not only for students, but for adults in the workplace as well.

I served as a campus Principal, a central office Director for a shared services cooperative of ten school districts, a Director at a for-profit company, and as a Vice President in a corporate non-profit.

For fun (because I do love teaching!), I also worked a side gig as a full-time professor in school leadership.  Those were 80+ hour work weeks, it was crazy but fun!


My "Why"

While I was a college professor, I realized how much I enjoy helping adults pursue their passions and passing on what I have learned in my journey.

I still want to change the world, one student at a time.

The only difference is that my students are adults who lead teams, or who aspire to lead teams, and THEY ALSO WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.

The world gets better when we all do our part to help others.

So, that's my story and why I'm here building a leadership development program that's affordable, practical and doesn't waste time on things that don't matter.

I'm here to help you learn and grow so your life will be better and the lives of those you lead will be better.


The Pinnacle of My Journey

What I learned during those years led me to where I am today. What did I learn, you ask?

People want to do good things.

People want something purposeful in which to believe.

People want to grow and be more than they are now.

I learned that I'm not the only one who wants to change the world. Most people want to have a hand in making the world a better place.

And leaders, most of all, want to help make things better.

Better for their teams, better for themselves, and better for their organizations.

How Can We Make This Better?

Find solutions to common leadership problems such as how to:

  • Transform your team from unengaged and zombie-like workers to engaged and enthusiastic team members
  • Focus on the five key leadership actions that will produce positive results for your team, and
  • Maximize your leadership practice so that YOU enjoy your work more.

"There is so much material in this course and she did an excellent job breaking it into manageable chunks to help me stay focused and not get overwhelmed."

"Dr. Baker is incredibly positive and encouraging, always willing to help and answer questions. I felt she was an actual person who cared about making sure I had all the information I needed to be successful in this course."

"I was impressed with her feedback and knowledge of the material. She was very caring."

I am currently enrolled in my first two courses and the experience was great. I am looking forward to my next courses and am no longer intimidated by Educational Law.
