Is your flock flying in the same direction?

Aligning people takes time, attention, and care -- even when there is shared passion about mission.  

By working on the team or organizational level, I can help you navigate the often-rocky terrain of alignment, growth and change.  We pair my creativity and expertise in organizational and team development with your knowledge and vision to design a project that will deliver value to you long after our work together is done.

Together, we can:

  • Increase trust and alignment among team members

  • Create strategies for smart & sustainable growth

  • Strengthen staffing structures & relationships

  • Assess team functioning and address challenges 

  • Gather & analyze staff input to improve organizational operations

  • Identify new ways of working that will magnify your impact

This work is guided by an understanding of how organizations change, grow and thrive:

  • Begin with what works: We start with the belief that in every organization, something works – and that by uncovering and focusing on what works, we can most powerfully build toward future success. Every change process starts with a thorough discovery process to identify what assets you, your organization and your people bring to the challenge at hand.
  • Champions are central: To succeed, change requires one or several champions who will own, model, communicate and make the case for change. I use my coaching expertise to support champions of change through the process of clarifying a compelling vision and engaging and aligning others around it.
  • Constant change demands resilience: Organizations, the people who comprise them, and the external environments in which we operate are constantly shifting. Given this reality, it is vital to develop personal and organizational resilience. I work with your organization and people to ensure that the strategies we devise are sustainable and resilient enough to withstand even more change ahead.
We hired Sarah to run our team retreat, and we were delighted with the way she designed the content, prepped for the meeting, and ran the day. She is the consummate professional, bright and observant— and at the same time, balanced and caring.

We continue to use the tools that she presented to our team, and they have transformed our working relationships.
