Sarah Brooks - MAC, Professional Business Coach (accredited by ICF, EMCC)
Are you a professional woman looking to change career so you can find work with more meaning? I offer a supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts safely.
My name is Sarah, I am an ICF and EMCC accredited coach. Coaching will help you work out what's important to you and how best to navigate the change.
Within one month, you will:
- be much clearer about the reason for your current feelings
- be more confident about your future direction
- have a plan of what you need to do to get there
Feedback from my clients tells me that I ask challenging questions which allow them to break through patterns of thinking that they've had for a while, allowing them to see things differently.
In 2007, I became disillusioned with my corporate career, the long hours, working away, high stress and lack of social life. It all felt so pointless. By working with a coach, I identified what motivated me and what made me feel valued. Coaching helped me get clear about the difference that I wanted to make in the world.
I've had a varied career working for a number of large private and public sector organisations as a management consultant and operations manager. I found the meaning in my career and I now work as a University lecturer encouraging students find the meaning in their careers at an early stage.
I live near the Peak District and I love fell running and walking - the worse the weather, the more I like it which makes me a bit mad I think.
I offer a free 30 minute introductory call, please get in touch with any questions.
