"A good coach can change a game, and a great coach can change a life.

 

These words were brought into action by the inspiring coaching from Sarah. 

 

Sarah puts all her energy and thoughts not just on understanding the issue you reach out to her for. But digs deeper to help you understand what it is that holds you back and works with you step by step till you finally say Hurrah!

I did it.

I have had a first-hand experience of how successful and game-changing this is."

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” - John C.

 

This is what exactly happened with me when I was working with Sarah. Her guru mantra about bringing value to the work was extremely powerful, especially the "Three things" one helped me a lot to achieve success at work.

 

Sarah's systematic approach to any situation or issue is the most effective way to come out or bring the best from the situation. With her coaching, I am creating a better version of myself every day. Thank you."

Sarah's path to discovering the power of Diversity Business Competency as a Global Coach

As a Business Executive leading from the front and working globally, Sarah consistently noticed that people seek more clarification and guidance about how to lead effectively in the workplace. Creating awareness about the power of choice and shifting our mindset to growth opportunities and collaboration became her main focus.

Yet, she felt something missing. People often overestimate their effectiveness in verbal and non-verbal communication skills. They will experience that something is 'off' and 'connecting' is a challenge. Tactics and practices on perspective thinking and subtleties in word choice . She started creating awareness around people's communication skills to be more aligned with the goals somebody is trying to achieve.

In the business setting that she was, as a Director working daily with people across the globe in our hyperconnected world, she realized the success of being agile in code-switching and using strategies in intercultural business interactions. She knows one can leverage great relationships by applying specific techniques that help thrive across cultures. As she invites people to grow, she started training on Cultural Intelligence (CQ), with a particular interest in Business strategies, allowing employees and companies to leverage this for competitive advantage. Having moved across significantly different cultural groups, she understands how to adjust to different cultural settings.

Combining the holistic approach of Global Coaching, the Power of Choice in Energy Coaching, and Diversity & Cultural Intelligence leads to fluently adapting to new patterns (code-switching) and transforming mindsets to achieve consistently positive outcomes, which is what Leadership and  Intercultural & Diversity Competence are all about. 

Interactions take place between people, not cultures. An adaptive mindset, IQ, EQ & CQ, and fluency in effective communication are critical for success. Outstanding Leadership unfolds if we put people first and help them develop.
