For many years, Sara has put her training as a Certified Executive Coach to work, partnering with a number of individuals and organizations to
improve their effectiveness and job satisfaction. Typically, individual clients are leaders in transition. Some have been promoted to a new position; some are struggling to manage a team
in the throes of financial strain, and some are changing tracks completely, leaving agencies they have founded in order to begin a new chapter of their lives. In each of these instances,
a highly personalized and disciplined plan of development is created – one that weighs options, risks and opportunity against ability and ambition. Many of these clients take part
in a formal leadership assessment to provide objective and time-sensitive insight into a person's leadership style. These assessments become a jumping-off point for the client-coach relationship, accelerating the formation of goal setting and action planning.
In addition to one-on-one coaching, Sara has experience working with groups to build a more unified and productive collective. Not
surprisingly, a number of these engagements arise through a palpable need for conflict resolution among group members. Companies, non-profit agencies, boards of directors and issue
networks can benefit from this type of thoughtful intervention. Sara has successfully helped her clients become re-committed to principles of shared accountability, cultural competency,
and creating an environment that allows each person to play to his or her strengths within the context of the team. Please visit Sara's Testimonials page to see what Sara's clients have to say about her style of leadership development.
