Sally Bibb is an award-winning business author, keynote speaker and founding director of Engaging Minds, a strengths consultancy. She leads strengths-based organisational change work in Europe, USA and Asia, and has a track record of achieving transformational results for her clients.

Sally’s strengths work is driven by personal experience and her own ‘light bulb’ moment. Working for BT International in her twenties she was promoted from a job she loved to a role that was totally wrong for her. She felt like a ‘square peg’ in a ’round hole’. Ten years later, hearing two inspirational speakers at a conference on ‘Positive Psychology and Business’, something ‘clicked’; she realised that at BT, she’d been placed in a role that did not play to her strengths. So began Sally’s extensive study and research into Positive Psychology and strengths versus competencies. Now, her mission is to turn organisations into successful, inspiring places where people love their work and thrive.

Sally’s 2016 book Strengths-based Recruitment and Development for organisations, explains how and why strengths-based talent management is having an astonishing impact on performance in organisations like the UK NHS and top companies like Saga, Gap, Starbucks and SABMiller. By shifting the focus from what people can do (competency-based recruitment) to what they are naturally good at and enjoy doing, these companies have reported results which include a 50% drop in staff turnover, 20% increase in productivity and a 12% increase in customer satisfaction within a matter of months.

Sally’s 2017 book The Strengths Book for everyone, is a practical guide that enables us all to discover our strengths and apply them to be happier and more fulfilled at work and in life.

Sally is a sought-after keynote speaker. She has an engaging, conversational style and tells stories that touch people and leave them feeling empowered to discover their strengths and raise their game. Hearing Sally will plant fresh, exciting ideas about strengths in your mind, and the desire to try them, either for your organisation or for yourself, in your heart.
