Let’s Deliver More Business Results…
Whether you are navigating a big business transformation or you need a trusted advisor and executive coach, please set up a complimentary conversation with me to explore how we might work together. I am a strategist that improves human performance through consulting and executive coaching.
My expertise is based on working many years with leading consulting firms like Accenture, IBM, KPMG, and Deloitte, helping Fortune 100 companies through big, complex, global business transformations.
Many clients are asked to lead change within their organization but do not have the specific project experience and capabilities to lead the work. The details can be overwhelming in a large change program, including identifying change impacts and mitigating action plans, dealing with stakeholder resistance and alignment issues, developing a robust communication strategy and plan, identifying job or role impacts, and developing the training strategy and plan required to support adoption. With the right thought partner and a customized approach, they have the direction they need to effectively lead the most challenging projects in their career with ease.
Companies Sara Has Worked With
Sara is an outstanding communications and change management consultant who worked with me on implementing a large-scale ERP initiative at Amgen to support its rapid growth strategy. She partnered with the communications team and Amgen leaders to develop a comprehensive stakeholder plan that delivered record-time results. Due to the project’s success, Sara was extended more than a year beyond her original scope to provide her expertise on other critical projects. I would highly recommend Sara for anyone desiring a proven communication and change management professional with exceptional business intelligence and a strong work ethic.
~Diana Campau, President, Campau Communications
Sara worked with me and my team as a change consultant on a restructuring project for McKesson Technology Services. She was the perfect combination of subject matter expert and trusted business adviser as we made tough decisions on how our business should be structured. She also created and launched our change management office with great success. I highly recommend Sara as a coach and consultant.
~Laz Garcia, Retired, former Senior Vice President, McKesson
Sara worked with me on a large global marketing transformation for a consumer products company. She was the global change management lead and she led the creation of the entire change program on a new analytics platform. She brought a diverse team of change leaders and business people together across human resources, marketing, analytics, technology, as well as consulting providers and got them focused on delivering against a plan based on the change program method and deliverables. Sara invested a year in standing up the program and enabled our team to complete the project on time and on budget.
Sara also worked with me as my Executive Coach after I moved to another consumer products company. She led me through a process to develop goals, strategies and actions that I had not been through with an executive coach. She then led me through the process of developing a plan to implement my goals. In this experience by creatively thinking about the process and operating more effectively, I was able to achieve the goal I set to save my company one million dollars. I would highly recommend Sara as an executive coach.
~Karen Chisholm, Director, Transformation Analytics, Pernod Ricard
It was an honor and a pleasure to work with Sara. When I joined IBM in the fall of 2012, I was grateful for her deep market insight to the software industry, her experience and excellent judgment as a communicator, and her great executive presence. She quickly became, and remains, an indispensable go-to reference. This spring, Sara managed a high-profile client testimonial project requested by the senior leadership team. She navigated several vendors and multiple internal stakeholder interests to produce outstanding results by an ambitious deadline. With grace and professionalism, Sara brings the right people together and provides clear, decisive direction to execute flawlessly. She’s an enormous asset to every team that is fortunate enough to have her.
~Michelle Arsenault, Executive and Workforce Communications Leader, IBM
