Her specialty is integrating the close details of individual skills, talents and motivations with the wide perspective of dynamic organizations. Leveraging proven tools, she helps teams build shared visions, healthy cultures, self-awareness and responsibility. Sarah has helped the most challenged teams use their talents to create a greater good that lasts.
Empowering this kind of successful and sustainable individual and organizational change has defined Sarah’s career. Since founding Carlsen Coaching & Consulting in 2005, Sarah has been a catalyst and facilitator for change, helping people and teams unlock their potential by working together better, using their strengths with intention and developing effective new behaviors. Sarah is particularly adept at creating courageous client partnerships, enabling clients to identify what’s working, what’s in the way, and what’s needed to get to the desired outcome.
As an advocate for helping her clients learn, stretch and grow, she herself is driven by a curiosity to find ever-better ways forward.
"I really enjoy Sarah’s supportive, deliberative approach, and would recommend her to anybody who’s struggling either to handle growth, or to determine the long-term direction for their company – and their role as its leader."
