Sandra has had the privilege of coaching everything from Bay Street executives, to newly appointed leaders to official’s at the most senior levels of the Federal Government. She has fostered a powerful reputation of assisting individuals who seek to expand their influence repertoire and pursue their leadership and professional goals. A diverse background in adult development and learning, emotional intelligence theory, and leadership development enables Sandra to assist individuals in developing options and creating solutions for sustaining success.
Sandra’s coaching philosophy related to career transition focuses on encouraging/supporting clients to be both introspective and action oriented. As a coach she has always endeavoured to create opportunities whereby clients gain the tactical skills needed to strategize about their career paths. As well, she has continuously challenged them to “reflect” and ask deeper, more meaningful questions of “who they are” within their journey. The creative tension between these two seemingly opposing dynamics facilitates much of the client’s growth and change.
