Sarah Myatt - Executive Coach - Confidence and Authentic Leadership
I am passionate about supporting professional individuals on becoming confident and authentic leaders and on achieving critical personal change development goals. This passion stems from my own personal experience and also my experience from working with senior leaders over the last 7 years of the positive transformation that occurs when we have the courage to step outside of our comfort zone, step into the light and allow ourselves to be seen more clearly by others.
Who I can help:
Professional individuals who are committed to personal growth and change and who want to feel more confident as a leader and want to lead with greater authenticity.
Professional individuals who are currently finding themselves struggling to achieve a critical personal change goal on their leadership development plan and who want coaching support to finally make that change happen.
I am based Christchurch, Dorset and have had my own online Executive Coaching practice for 7 years.
I entered into coaching after 15 years of working in business as a senior executive in London and the US. In 2013 I gave up the corporate world to bring about more balance in my life. With two young boys, the pressures of global travel and a full time job I found myself feeling unhappy and stressed. I decided to leave my job and find a way to pursue my passion for helping others.
In 2014 I completed my Certificate in Coaching qualification at Ashridge Business School to build my specialist skill set, entered into my own personal therapy and started my own coaching practice. In 2018 I completed my Masters in Executive Coaching at Ashridge Business School and also completed the Minds at Work Immunity to Change training in Boston.
It was during this time that I went on my own personal journey in discovering what was holding me back in allowing my authenticity to flourish both within work and in my wider life. It is this personal journey, combined with my professional training and extensive business experience, that allows me to relate and support my clients to bring about change in a way that clients feel understood, supported and held.
My coaching areas:
- Confidence and Authenticity: Here I support clients to gain acceptance and confidence in who they are now and to allow more of themselves to show up both with others and within themselves. Goals have included:
- to understand who I am as a leader and then to live it
- to be confident in managing senior stakeholders
- to successfully manage conflict,
- to navigate a critical transition successfully (expert to leader/large promotion/new job)
- Critical Personal Change Goal: Here I support clients to successfully achieve those important, but difficult, personal change goals that they have often been working hard to achieve but never seem to be able to achieve the long term sustainable change required. Examples of goals clients have brought include:
- be an active listener
- be more collaborative with others
- delegate more to the team
- step back from tactical work and allow more time for strategy
My coaching offer:
45 minute consultation (free)
I always offer an initial free 45 minute consultation with all clients so they can explore their goal for coaching and experience what coaching is like with me. The session allows us both to decide whether we feel we can work together.
Authenticity and Confidence: packages of 6 x 1:1 90 minute coaching sessions
Executive coaching allows individuals the space and time to explore and work on their key goal. Goals may be high level or specific.
Personal Change Goal package: 2.5 hour session plus 60 minute 1:1 session follow up sessions (number dependent on individual circumstances)
We will work together to uncover the reasons why you are stuck and unable to make the change you wish to make.
By the end of the 2.5 hour session you will be able to:
- Understand why the strategies and actions to date have not been successful
- Identify the assumptions and beliefs that are holding you back from making the change you want.
- Create an initial plan to begin to get unstuck and start to move forward
Follow on 60 minute 1:1 sessions:
These sessions build upon the work completed in the 2.5 hour session to support you in developing and implementing the change you wish to make.
Clients typically require 4 - 6 sessions depending on the individual circumstances.
"I was very fortunate to have a number of sessions with Sarah when I needed time to focus on and address some thorny issues in business and with my personal development. Sarah helped me to work through these issues and reflect on my perceptions which allowed me to rediscover the real me, get my mojo back, and improve my performance at work. I really warmed to Sarah who is very empathic in her style and I really appreciated and benefited from her thoughtful guidance. I would highly recommend Sarah if you are looking for a deeper understanding of your personal and professional life and the support to think and work things through." David, London
"Sarah is a very talented coach. I have found her honesty, empathy, and integrity to be invaluable. Her warm and engaging style means she is adept at bringing even the most uncomfortable truth to light in a supportive and non-confrontational way. Sarah is also very commercial and understands what drives businesses - invaluable as a coach. She helped transform lives and working relationships. I am a big fan!" Terri, London
