  • “What I like about Sarah’s coaching is that she commits to you. I know that she is actively listening and has my best interests in mind. She truly cares about my success and continuously goes above and beyond to ensure that I see noticeable change in my behaviour and subsequent impact in my organisation.

     

    Her utter dedication to support my development is most admirable – she both motivates and inspires me. I am grateful for her candour and constructive challenge and her ability to help me determine my priorities and create order amongst the chaos. Her Power of Love Leadership model has been most useful, as it has helped me to take control of my decisions and approach difficult situations with confidence and clarity.

     

    Sarah’s coaching has been an invaluable and transforming experience. Her perceptiveness and insight led to a great amount of personal learning in terms of understanding myself and how to actively make changes in a sustainable manner. Her in-depth knowledge of her field has led to marked changes in my professional brand, contributing to the advancement of my career.”

  • “The work with Sarah has been life changing. We now have a senior strategic team which is working much more effectively and it is critical to the future of our business. The work with Sarah has brought focus and alignment to the way our key strategic leaders work individually and with each other and the payback is astronomic.” Chief Executive – Financial Services

  • “I went through a very successful coaching programme with Sarah over several months in 2014. Sarah is a highly experienced and insightful coach and mentor. Combining careful listening with acute prompting Sarah elicited much worthwhile self-analysis and reassessment of goals, strategies and management style. Her collaborative manner developed trust quickly.

     

    Sarah was very effective in guiding me to see strengths and weaknesses objectively and find quite varied keys to unlock better performance and working approaches for myself  and my team. She was also a mine of resources, short exercises, practical tips and thought-provoking articles/texts that helped achieve results, and got me to do things differently with a high performing team and resolve team niggles. Would thoroughly recommend her.”

  • I took part in 1 to 1, executive coaching sessions with Sarah over a large portion of last year.  Her personal style and insights were invaluable in allowing me to further develop various elements of my leadership.  With Sarah’s help and counsel, I was able to tangibly progress on the ideas and opportunities captured in my Executive Development programme.  I would highly recommend Sarah onwards for help in any type of Leadership development, 1 to 1 coaching, or strategy development.

  • Having known Sarah for a number of years and recognising and valuing her tremendous skill-sets, I felt completely safe in asking her to offer discreet coaching to members of my prospective MBO team.

     

    The team members had different personal issues which prevented them from being as effective as they might otherwise be in the situation with which they were presented. It was vitally important to me that they be gently coached into recognising their shortcomings and then into remedying them on their own as their own idea.
    Sarah took them through the process with great skill and care. Failure to have done so would, in my view, have resulted in the team members feeling criticised and undervalued. The exercise was a great success. I plan to roll this process out to other key individuals in our business with Sarah’s help as we move forward.

  • Sarah is an outstanding Executive Coach who instinctively knows how to get you to perform to your best. Tenacious in the most unassuming way, working with Sarah means that 100% achievement of your goals is the only outcome possible!

    Gillian Rosen
    Head of HR, H&T Pawnbrokers
  • Sarah has worked with us with great success in a number of areas and has brought to us HR skills and experience that we couldn’t have possibly have had in house. She has mentored very senior members of the management helping them to develop their skills, manage stress and better define their career aspirations.

     

    Sarah has also  assisted us in interviewing for senior appointments helping us to ensure that we were clear on the type of individual that we needed to appoint and that the chosen candidate fulfilled those needs, including assisting with psychometric  assessment.

     

    Last but by no means least Sarah led a team development exercise involving the whole senior management team that has transformed the openness of communications and vastly improved one to one relationships between some members of the team. I would whole heartedly recommend talking to Sarah to see how she might help to improve the performance of a management team or assist with the development of key individuals within a team.

  • I have worked with Sarah as a corporate business coach since the end of 2012 and have found her extremely helpful and insightful.
