    Alison Fett has been the Assistant Vice President of Talent Development at Verve a Credit Union for the past three years.  In this role, she strives to create a culture of servant leadership through developmental trainings and one-on-one coaching.  Alison takes pride in serving those around her and inspiring others to do the same. Her leadership style is one of self-discovery, empowerment, candor, and unconditional love.  Alison firmly believes servant leadership is a journey, not a destination.

    Prior to working for Verve, Alison was the principal at Lourdes Academy Elementary Schools in Oshkosh, Wisconsin while coaching their girls’ basketball team.  Alison has also worked for the NBA, NCAA, and NBC.  In her earlier years, she was a personal trainer and high school secretary.

    Through all her experiences, Alison has discovered serving one another is key to fostering a great culture and, ultimately, enhances the bottom line.  She believes when you take care of your team, your team will take care of your members, and the results will come.  In 2016, Alison had the opportunity to share her message at CUES CEO/Executive Team Network in Savannah, Georgia, where she was named a Finalist in the CUES Next Top Credit Union Executive Competition.  In August 2017, she will be sharing her message via her first TEDx Talk.

    Alison received her Bachelor’s degree in Radio, TV, Film and her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.  When Alison is not working, she enjoys golfing, watching basketball, fishing, creating arts/crafts, public speaking and, last but not least, dance parties with her two children Vincent – (“Vinny”, 6) and Penelope – (“PJ”, 3).

    She lives by the motto: “Who you are is good enough; don’t ever stop creating better versions of yourself.  It feels great to grow.”

    Presentation Description:

    Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs suggests that all humans have a desire to reach their full potential yet only 15% of people do so.  The jar is a tool designed to bridge this gap.  It represents basic concepts; however, they require intentional practice.  When these concepts become habitual, basic human needs are satisfied, inspiring individuals to take the next step toward reaching their full potential.  The closer people are to reaching their full potential, the more engaged they become.  Although these concepts at common sense, they are not common practice!

    Why engagement matters:

    • Financial performance is 4 times better in organizations with fully engaged employees/team members
    • Fully engaged employees/team member are 87% less likely to quit
