Smart leaders make everyone smarter.

It's hard work to find the time to focus on your own development needs. BUT the best way to look after your business and grow your team is to look after yourself.

As a business owner being an effective leader is the most significant contribution you can make to your business. You just can't do it all on your own. Smart leaders mix vision with practical skill. They have great wisdom which they use to further the growth and engagement of their teams. It is vital to invest in your own development to keep pace with the growing demands of the role your business needs.

What's your challenge?

  • You're an expert in your world and you have grown your fledgling idea into a fabulously successful business.
  • It's your first time in a leadership role.
  • You want to learn more about yourself and other aspects of leadership to move your business to the next level – but … how do you know what you don’t know?
  • You're a successful business founder-owner, you manage the strategic priorities for your business and develop and lead the team to maintain a sustained competitive advantage for your business in your market. Things are good (most of the time) and you want them to get better – great even. You’re now hungry and want to make the next big change in your world.
  • Your business is growing and changing. Your priority is making sure you have the right people in the right place, or perhaps your team needs to disrupt and innovate? Whatever the conditions in your business make sure you have the skills and confidence you need to take it forward.

I have experience working with business of all sizes and understand the real challenges facing leaders everyday. I can help you connect with people in your business to  build strong working relationships and get your team into the habit of delivering great work everyday (even when you are not there.)

SDI Know your strengths 

The TOTAL SDI is a powerful and effective psychometric tool for understanding the motives and values that drive behaviours.

Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI)  helps leaders better understand themselves and what motivates them. Greater self awareness enables them to influence and lead with clarity and empathy.

SDI is useful if you are seeking to:

  • Appreciate your strengths.
  • Understand what drives your behaviour.
  • Develop behaviours to lead with clarity and empathy.
  • Navigate conflict and positively influence others.
  • Support  and manage change.
  • Unlock the mysteries of your professional relationships.

SDI is easy to use and apply: It’s relevant to leaders at all levels in business, making it an great foundation for better and more focused conversations across your business.

1:1 leadership Coaching

Leadership coaching will help you bring your energy, skill and strengths to the things that matters most to you. Whatever your definition of success, a good coach is an ally working with you to achieve your professional and personal goals.

Leaders and business owners need support to master new skills, build confidence to take the first step and tenacity to keep going when things don’t go the way you had hoped for. It can be tough. Coaching is a key part of what I do.

You will never know what you’re capable of until there’s someone to push you outside your comfort zone. Just ask any professional athlete.

Who is 1:1 coaching for?

  • Business owners and entrepreneurs.
  • Executives and established leaders.
  • New leaders and rising stars.

Personal development planning

Use a personal development plan to structure your thinking and turn this into action.

The personal development planning process helps define what's really important to you, what you want to achieve, the strengths you already have that help to achieve your goals, and what you need to improve and develop with time.

PDP can help you to:

  • Increase your self-awareness – who you are and what you want.
  • Identify the skills and experience that you have, and the ones you need.
  • Create a plan to acquire the skills you need.
  • Keep a record of your achievements to monitor and celebrate your progress.

"SDI is  fascinating, having a report about me. Everything was useful but most useful was understanding the team. I really enjoyed it, it was incredibly eye opening." Sidonie Warren,Managing Director, Studio B, Bristol

"Sara's mentoring and direct input has helped me move out of the "echo chamber" and back into the wider, more productive context.
