Lead from Within
Having leaders that are fulfilled, confident, clear on their impact, and in touch with their emotional intelligence is no longer a luxury. In fact, ignoring the pressure, burn-out, and wtf that leaders often feel trickles down and can lead to:
lack of vision
decrease in customer satisfaction
Which ... you guessed it. All impacts the overall bottom-line.Through coaching, organizations can invoke the human potential that creates a culture of highly impactful, fulfilled leaders.
Not a campaign that ends as quickly as it began but a true shift in how people show-up for your organization, each other, and themselves.
Leadership happens in every day moments and the ripple effect those moments have are extremely powerful. Does the below sound like you or your organization?
You want to leave a legacy that makes the world better.
You are committed to an organizational culture that fosters innovation, fun, big dreamers, inclusion, and leaders at all levels.
You love forging your own path and challenging the status quo.
You believe that one never stops learning and growing.

Summary of Programs
The top level of leadership sets the tone for the rest of the organization. To have a culture based on leadership, executives need to exemplify that vision. It is not about being perfect it is about being willing to embrace vulnerability, authenticity, and empowering those around you. Being at the top can be lonely and has added pressure. That does not mean that you have to sacrifice your well-being, work/life integration, or your soul. Can you be a highly impactful leader and have the fun and freedom you crave? Absolutely. It begins within.
Emerging Leader Coaching
Coaching in its simplest form is to bridge the gap between where someone is and where they want to be. When employees can have an integrated life and be at choice they gain the power to step into their own possibility. Providing your newer leaders with coaching is a stand for generating long-term shifts in their lives and leadership. Your leaders have the opportunity to presence themselves to their own greatness and notice when the myriad of fears, judgements, and patterns get in the way.
Workshops - Team Collaboration & Leader Development
First and foremost the workshops are designed to be FUN. This is not a snooze fest, get me out of here kind of workshop. Humor, improv exercises, open dialogue, deep work, and actions for after the workshop are all blended together to create a one-of-a-kind, engaging, effective experience.
Take your teams from disjointed (I) to unified (we)
Improve communication between leaders
Increase employee engagement and performance
Create a culture of work/life integration
Teach leaders how to increase their impact and influence in a positive way
And that is just the tip of the iceberg
Lead with a Vision
Do your employees know where the company is headed? Are your teams operating under a unified goal? Whether you are just starting a company, going through a reorganization, or looking at reigniting the passion in your organization, having a clear vision is the first step.
Where are you headed?
Who do you want to be as you head there?
What is the impact you will make?
What are you committed to?
Emotion, blind spots, fear, history, obstacles, etc. can get in the way of not only generating a clear vision but also allowing yourself to really dream. Bring in Sarah as an objective third party, who blends years of facilitation, business analysis, project management, leadership, and coaching to create a clear vision and action plan with you. Oh, and laughter will be a side benefit (I mean seriously these discussions don't have to be poke your eye out kind of meetings).
Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire a coach?
Coaching bridges the gap between where you are and where you truly want to be. The question to ask yourself, “Is there one or more areas of my life that I am sick of how it is going and want to create different results?”. Do I hear a “darn tootin’!”? Well then a coach adds power, support, accountability, insight, and structure to the experience. Olympic athletes work with coaches. You want to be an olympian at life, at business, at leadership, at compassion, at love ... you get the picture ... hire a coach.
What should I look for in a coach?
Coaching is a partnership between the client and coach. Having an initial discovery session with a coach allows you to see if the coach’s style and personality is a fit for you. Additionally, effective coaches are objective, non-judgmental, rock-star listeners, insightful, and direct. I also believe that having a wicked sense of humor is critical; however, that is my own personal preference. In case your next question is are you funny, I am. Hysterical.
What is the difference between coaching, therapy, consulting, and training?
Coaching – focus on future, nothing to fix, create awareness, structures to create lasting results, coach and client are partners
Therapy – focus on the past, issues to fix
Consulting – client has a problem that the consultant can solve, assumes a level of expertise over client
Training – educating the client, assumes a level of expertise over the client
What if I know I want to make a change but I am not sure what that change is?
That scenario is actually very common. The beauty of coaching is that the coach meets you wherever you are at in the process. Together you can gain insight into what you want and where you want to go.
Where does your coaching take place?
One-on-one coaching sessions are performed via phone or video based on your preference. The workshops are most effective in-person. Speaking engagements can be in-person or via a web-conference.
