Developing Great People for A Great Tomorrow | Sabrina Lloyd

Sabrina Lloyd

President & CEO

One of the great lessons that Sabrina Lloyd, President & CEO, Lloyd Agencies, has learned in business is the importance of the environment. She says that the environment is the space around us, and what’s inside of us. In business, it’s the companies that understand the importance of having the right people in their environment that really have the ultimate advantage. Instead of spending the majority of time and resources on product development we have made a decision to really work on people development. We are more concerned with people innovation and design than product innovation and design—What does this mean, and why is this so important? In an age where technology makes more and more automation possible, future businesses will have better people. For great companies the focus will be on the people, not just the product.

People innovate. People design. That’s why she focuses on people’s development by providing a high-performance environment that continuously works on the development of its people.

 

She is committed to constantly improving the work environment so everyone has a place where great people can flourish.

And it starts with every individual committing to the process of developing themselves. “The more I learn the more I realize just how much there is to learn. As our team commits to the unrelenting process of being the best version of ourselves we are grounded by principles and values that stand the test of time. Greatness is rare. Great environments are rare. It takes leadership to create this, and I am honored to have provided an environment where people can achieve this for themselves.”

The team at Lloyd Agencies strives to be leaders in the industry. They want to achieve great heights, lead the way in innovation and have the freedom to push the limits of what they think is possible to provide the best possible experience for their customer. The insurance industry is old and outdated, but the Lloyd Agencies team strives to be new and innovative. Sabrina endeavors to create a leadership culture that is responsible and disciplined. Not just disciplined in their actions but also their thoughts. For Sabrina, it’s about creating a culture of people who want to perform consistently and win in the short team and understand the importance of thinking and preparing for the long term. “It takes incredible discipline to achieve this. As the CEO of this company it’s important to set the standard of the organization and create an environment of responsible people that are willing to do what it takes to win for the customer, the team and themselves,” adds Sabrina.

Overcoming Barriers & Becoming A Mentor

Sabrina believes that leadership is visual. There are not a lot of female leaders in the insurance industry, there are a lot of great producers, but leadership is something entirely different. Being able not to see herself as a “female” leader but instead as a strong leader has always been Sabrina’s goal. “I’ve always wanted to keep myself out of any of the boxes that people wanted to place me in. Because I love being original and creative, I think the most challenging thing is the environment that I am in,” she explains. “I love being a mother and my family is the most important thing to me. These require two different personalities and mindsets to excel. Being able to navigate through that shift requires constant work.”

The steadfast leader has a podcast called Stand-Alone that she started in 2021, which is not just for women but helps women gain access to people that Sabrina values. “A lot of people ask me to mentor them in business and so I just completed my first book—Stand Alone. This book will go into my journey of leading my life through its opportunities and difficulties,” she says. “It takes leadership to lead your life instead of just letting it happen to you. I came to this country with a bag of clothes and a car. Most people think they need to get something before they can achieve the extraordinary. I believe that all we need is an opportunity and then we have to be resourceful, hungry, and disciplined to commit to a process. Success is not an event. It’s a process that people endure to carve out a greater version of themselves.”

For Sabrina, it’s incredibly important to surround oneself with positive people that dare to challenge each other. “Successful people share common principles and values when it comes to achieving. If you become coachable this can be one of your biggest assets—having someone who is more wise than you to help navigate where you are and help you get to where you want to be, is priceless in business.”

Building A Brand

Once Sabrina decided to stop competing and copying what’s always been done in the past and do what no one else is willing to do, she, along with her team, was able to carve out their lane for themselves. This did two things—it builds an incredible discipline and skill in oneself. “This helps to give you the confidence to do this again. This is why you have to look at courage like a muscle. Every time you do something challenging you are already winning,” she elucidates. “The reward is the muscle you get that you can call on in the future when you have another hard task to accomplish.” According to the pioneering leader, it’s also freeing to be a creator, “When you do what no one else is doing it allows for you to be more creative and expansive in your thinking. That’s why I say competing is a very low energy activity and for very small minded people. Because in the time you waste wondering what other people are doing—you can take that energy and create something better!”

Being blessed with three beautiful children, Sabrina often wondered what kind of world they would live in and then understood that they would live in the world that their elders created. She says that what we tolerate today is what we are promoting for the future. She sees Lloyd Agencies expanding globally, working to develop leaders of the future, working with the young minds of the future to help create a better and brighter future and to continue the process of making this world evolve for the better.

They want to provide an informative and transformative workplace where people who contact Lloyd Agencies can change and learn something about themselves. “That you come to the realization that you can be so much more. That you are worth all the work that it will take to carve out this undeniably great person that is inside of you,” she explains. “That you would be open to the possibility that work isn’t something you do to pay your bills. It’s something you pour yourself into so it can pour back into you and spill out into the world. I believe that businesses help make the world a better place. And I know that our business and team help to contribute towards the greater good of this world—one person at a time.”
