Meet the Reality-Based Leadership Team!
Our Reality-Based Speakers
Sara Meis, Chief of Staff
As Chief of Staff, Sara is the glue that ties together all aspects of the Reality-Based Team. After graduating in 2009 from Augustana College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Business, Sara began working for Cy Wakeman.
With Cy’s guidance, Sara quickly adopted the Reality-Based Philosophy. She uses her creativity to strategically combine accountability and resilience with her wide background and diverse experience to set the entire team up for success.
Ellie Steinbrink, Director of Marketing
Ellie leads anything and everything related to marketing strategy and content for Reality-Based Leadership. She comes to us with 15 years of experience in all facets of digital and traditional marketing, including leading client strategy and relations at multiple agencies and managing TurboTax product marketing with Intuit.
Ellie’s love of Reality-Based Leadership started years ago when she experienced Cy’s drama-ditching philosophy first-hand through 1:1 coaching. Because of the way this philosophy has shaped her personal and professional life, Ellie now has a passion to spread this life-changing message with the world.
