“Sarah is a fantastic instructor. She did an excellent job of tailoring the leadership course design and the class discussions to exactly what we needed in the moment. I’ve left every session with a lot to think about and find myself discussing the content with peers, friends, and family.”

“The work that Sarah has done with my staff and I has proven to be invaluable. She has the unique ability of creating an open environment while challenging and guiding individuals outside of their comfort zones with grace, honesty, and humor. Sarah interweaves her own personal experiences, business and communication practices, and current, real life situations to create dynamic and thoughtful discussions that strengthen, inspire, and refine an organization. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to those pursuing individual or organizational growth.

“You were an excellent facilitator. You put structure in the day, but also kept out of everyone’s way where it made sense to let the groups work. You got all of us thinking really well about our organization, about problem-solving, about the practicalities of the future.”
Lyall Bush, former Executive Director ~ Richard Hugo House
“I highly recommend Sarah’s personal discernment retreat for anyone at a career impasse. I had many “aha” moments throughout the day that gave me a fresh, enlightening perspective on my core strengths, attributes, and passions. By the end of the day, Sarah had also helped me craft a robust list of action items and next steps based on these new self-discoveries. I felt I finished the retreat with a game plan for moving forward. Sarah also knows how to tailor the retreat to your needs. She comes in with a framework, but the process is dynamic and Sarah always knows exactly when and how to shift gears to maximize the results. She never misses a beat. I also appreciated her razor-sharp listening skills, and her ability to be simultaneously inspiring and realistic, and kind yet honest. Sarah has an amazing gift, and anyone who participates in this retreat will be very fortunate to benefit from it.”
