Helping organizations and people evolve, grow, and thrive all over the world

Over the 20 years I’ve been working with CEOs, HR Executives, and Learning and Development Leaders, they often have the same kinds of questions and challenges: 

  • How do I help my team develop the skills needed to support our organization’s growth?

  • We don’t understand why we are losing people; how do we shift strategy to keep our high performers here?

  • How do we help folks that are moving up from lower level positions into management and leadership positions to succeed in those roles? Can you provide management/leadership training or a development plan for our organization?

  • We have a leader who is great in one area, but not inter-personally savvy; Can that person still work in a leadership role? How should we transition or train them to set them – and us! – up for success?

  • We are having morale issues – can you help us diagnose what is going on and develop a strategy to adjust our internal culture?

I help with all of these areas. This can include working one-on-one with CEOs or HR leaders, coaching individuals who are moving into management or leadership positions, and collaborating with larger parts of the organization to develop strategies. My approach integrates honesty, high energy interactions, experiential learning, development of interpersonal dynamics, and collaborative strategy design – all of which are necessary to help people learn how to lead, manage, and work with other people. I help people to develop grit, resilience, and a growth mindset, and am often the trusted partner that supports the many phases of talent management and development. We are a female-owned small business.  I work locally and internationally while based in Boston and on Cape Cod.

My work as a management consultant has resulted in elevated business profitability, increased job satisfaction of millennials, and improved performance and retention of high potentials.  I have extensive experience working with organizations that strive to balance excellent performance for their owners, employees, and their communities. 

I hold a Masters in Organization Development and Adult Education, as well as Bachelors degrees in Business Management and Adventure Recreation. I am both an International Coach Federation Certified Executive coach and Gestalt certified coach.  

Our team is comprised of seasoned professionals who support projects and engagements based on the needs for their expertise.

What Our Clients Say

“I have had the privilege and benefit of learning from Sarah through her presentations. We recently collaborated on a presentation on the topic of coaching and found the experience of working with her both energizing and personally enriching. As my informal mentor, I can attest that she possesses a genuine and caring presence and has an authentic generosity in sharing her depth of experience and knowledge. One of her greatest gifts is her ability to open the door to allow for group dialogue, be present, and share feedback that is honest and transformative. She creates visions and can frame the possibilities which makes her a true champion of people and expert in the field of Organizational Development and Coaching.”
