About Alissa Carpenter

Millennial Expert | Training Consultant | Leadership Coach

I specialize in helping people and companies identify and use unique strengths to increase fulfillment and productivity in the workplace and in life. In particular, I focus on educating organizations to better engage and retain Millennial workers, while helping Millennials themselves explore their careers. I work with companies, universities, and individuals across the United States, but my home base is near Philadelphia, PA. Media outlets such as Forbes, CNN, and Monster have sought my expertise, and I am delighted to be a formal Forbes contributor. Below is my recent interview with Lifestyle With Eraldo on WMCN TV.

According to Gallup, people who use their strengths every day are three times more likely to report having an excellent quality of life, six times more likely to be engaged at work, 8% more productive and 15% less likely to quit their jobs
