What choice will you make today?

I am writing today with my Certified Coaching Hat fully on!  Almost every executive I have spoken to recently is burned out and tired. Same for staff.

It takes one step

To make a change you have to take ONE Step. Wow, that sounds so easy and yet we get tripped up in taking the one step. Why? Insecurity, saboteurs, fear . . the list of reasons we think we can’t take the step can be long. To help you get unstuck and poised to take […]

Do your decisions make a difference?

Sara Wilson, CPCC, ACC | It’s the everyday decisions that count. My mother gave me that life advice. At the time I didn’t realize the profoundness of the wisdom she was sharing.

What do you need to have a breakthrough?

Sara Wilson, CPCC, ACC | I’m inspired to write about breakthroughs today because of two conversations I had in the last 24 hours with two leaders who said they are “stuck.” Who has been there? Do you need a breakthrough? You are stuck if you keep trying to do something without making progress, or keep […]

Plan for the marathon with self-care

Sara Wilson, CPCC, ACC | “Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.” — Oprah Winfrey Now at the end of the first quarter of 2021, most leaders are caught up in the inexorable rhythm of the work year. We are sprinting from task to […]

Sara Wilson | One area my executive coaching clients often work on with me is their mindset about change. We all have one — a mindset.
