We are living at a time on this planet when remembering where we came from, and how we are all deeply connected within the web of life, is more important than ever before. As a species we are pushing past the capacity of planetary resources and systems to meet our needs. Corporate leaders are confronting the physical reality of limits to growth in their businesses, and the new geo political realities of a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. This in turn is leading many to question the purpose of their business, as well as their own path.
Sarah is passionate about helping leaders find their purpose and power to be effective agents for change within and beyond their organizations.With over 30 years of business and corporate experience, as well as a deep immersion and practice in energy medicine and leadership techniques she has witnessed first hand how the pursuit of happiness has manifested as the pursuit of material wealth, and yet how as individuals we continue to yearn for more depth and meaning in our lives.
Sarah's consulting practice is designed to help teams create transformative agendas for their companies, and for individual leaders to connect with their true purpose in life.
