Who Am I?

Sarah Taylor

My true passion is to help people to be the best version of themselves both as an individual & in their contribution to a wider team; enhancing effectiveness, engagement, productivity & resilience whilst recognising the importance of sustained fulfilment & success against the commercial and cultural backdrop.

Whether working one to one with a Senior Director to support the next stage of their leadership/career, through to working with teams to increase effectiveness & greater engagementmy approach is authentic, highly versatile and encourages proactive change relevant to those I partner with. 

Following a successful career leading teams within media communications across brands such as Cadburys, Levis, McDonalds & Heineken for over 15 years, my career changed direction when I became Head of Learning & Development for Starcom MediaVest Group in 2008.

Since 2015, I have worked as an independent Personal Development Coach, Team Coach, Facilitator & Talent Management Consultant.

Bringing together a wealth of commercial and management experience, I have a rounded perspective of the importance of investing in people in the most impactful way.

Partnering collaboratively with a truly diverse mix of organisations, my approach is tailored to the needs of the client to enhance motivation, proactive behaviours and performance; balancing the business agenda whilst understanding the differentiating needs of leadership, management, teams and individuals:

  • Coaching individuals to support their personal career journey & growth
  • Designing & facilitating leadership impact & influence programmes to accelerate capability (management to leadership)
  • Team workshops to enhance engagement & effectiveness
  • Leadership & Team away-day facilitation
  • Bespoke independent sessions to address key themes. For example,
    • Developing & strengthening Emotional Intelligence
    • Enhancing self awareness & impact
    • Relationship & communication effectiveness
    • Constructive conversations & managing conflict
    • Vision, purpose, values, behaviours & culture (brand) articulation
  • Train the Trainer to create impactful in-house solutions

Please note that the majority of approaches can be delivered virtually.

Everything starts with self-awareness and the commitment to make a positive, proactive change.

Please get in touch to discuss if I can help you personally or assist in the development of those you look after.
