Sarah has been instrumental in helping me realize my potential as a leader- not just in the business world but in all aspects of my life. She has an uncanny ability to hear a dilemma and bring in a perspective that is genuine and honest. Most importantly, she has helped me understand and define my own style of leading while I also embrace the communication differences and needs of others.
Prior to working with Sarah, I was challenged to clearly define the strategies I need to focus on in stressful leadership situations. After spending time with her, I am much more confident in setting boundaries to help those situations work out in a process with positive outcomes. I am able to recognize that making mistakes is not the end of the world when you have clear and authentic intentions. There is so much to be learned when you embark on the journey of leadership awareness. If you are considering enlisting Sarah’s help, don’t hesitate. Whether working for a small non-profit or a large corporation, leadership is complicated work and Sarah really helps make it clear and enjoyable.

The ROI on this process was exponential. As a result of the feedback and coaching, I have taken out a lot of wasted time and effort in my leadership style, which I can redirect to winning in the marketplace.
Admiral, US Navy
Sarah was helpful, supportive, and at the same time informative. She helped me identify those ways I can influence my staff when I return to the Pentagon and call them in on Saturday. She challenged my thinking and ideas—my staff won’t know who I am when I get back!! We set clearly identifiable and reachable goals.
Part of an amazing team serving awesome customers.
We had a very challenging situation that we needed outside expertise on. I asked a friend of mine who was a COO of an organization of several thousand people. He told he had worked with Sarah, and recommended her very highly. I contacted Sarah and hired her. She came in and assessed our situation. She came up with recommendations, and we asked her to carry out some of the tasks. She helped us out tremendously. Sarah has a great combination of being personable, but at the same time will not shy away from the tough conversations. She is very sharp, is a good writer, and does what she says she’ll do, when she says she’ll do it. Sarah has great insights into leadership and organizational behavior. I highly recommend her.
Managing Director EMEA (now retired), Corning Cable Systems
Sarah’s specialty is helping teams to improve their performance. My team comprising seven nationalities was somewhat skeptical that it needed help and that an outside consultant would be value adding. In particular as a fairly new team emerging from a business integration we did not feel comfortable expressing our real feelings. Today all my team value Sarah as a mentor and ally. We regularly use the wisdom she has given us to resolve issues rapidly. Needless to say Sarah is hardworking, generous with her time, conscientious and very knowledgeable about her specialist areas. Above all she is fun to work with. However despite her sunny disposition she has the inner resolve and toughness to deal with really difficult people.

Whether designing a client initiative or discussing day-to-day challenges, every time I talk with Sarah I learn something. I find her questions and comments to be insightful, thought-provoking and meaningful. More importantly, it happens every time we talk.

I had the pleasure of working with Sarah to design and deliver a senior executive development experience which had a significantly positive impact upon C-suite and high potential executives at SPX.
She demonstrated the highest levels integrity, creativity, coaching skill, and project management throughout this challenging long-term project. Sarah is nothing if not authentic. Her engaging personality and great sense of humor made her a joy with whom to work.
I recommend her very highly.
Past President of The Boston Club
I love working with Sarah! She’s bright, creative, an out-of-the-box thinker, passionate about adding value, and really good at what she does. A life-long learner, she’s curious, inquisitive, and always seeking best practices and better ways of doing things. I rely on her wise counsel, insights and the way she challenges me. Oh, and then there’s her sense of humor! She’s fun and funny – a pleasure to be around.
Sarah is a world class coach and facilitator. She has more knowledge of Type than anyone I’ve worked with and she brings a ton of business acumen to her work.
Business Technical Writer, Ghost Writer
I have found Sarah’s professional advice to be extremely insightful, yet always practical and do-able. Her rare combination of keen intuition, contagious humor, and good old-fashioned common sense is what sets her apart from any crowd of peers in terms of her ability to relate to her clients and achieve effective and meaningful outcomes in helping them achieve their personal and professional goals.
Vice President Land Brokerage, Mid Atlantic
Having someone who truly listens, someone who hears what you say as well as what you don’t say, is rare, especially in business. Having that same person then be adept at objective analysis to lay out what you need to know in actionable terms is not just uncommon, it is valuable. Sarah brings this to the table, and more, in a professional context that doesn’t just outline a path but actually illuminates steps to take down the path. Good stuff, especially in tough times.
Leadership Coaching Director, SVP
I was searching for a courageous partner to deliver ground-breaking coaching at Starcom USA when I met Sarah. Coaching alongside her, I quickly learned that she is someone with high integrity, spot-on instincts and courage to act on those instincts in key coaching moments. Sarah is not “someone I hired to co-coach a workshop with”; she is a highly effective strategist and trusted delivery partner. Sarah’s coaching contribution has led many of our top leaders to deeper self-awareness and to a commitment to continued personal growth.
