Hello! I'm Sarah B Rawz.

You can call me SB, Sarah B, or Rawz.

 

Coaching makes my eyes sparkle. It’s true.

A client – a fella whose eye-sparkle had been sapped by over-identification with his work - once asked me, “How could you coach me when your work is clearly more than just work to you?”

So how could I, a person who feels born to her work, who feels her work as a significant chunk of the energy that animates her, coach him to disconnect that bit of identity?

That’s the magic of coaching, that I neither have nor need to have the right path for anyone else. What I have, in abundance, is the ability to move people toward their own answers. His answer was to courageously challenge his work-focused identity and regroup around the people and activities that truly light him from inside.

That's what I offer. That and:

  • An innate ability to create safe spaces for challenging internal work – work that I have done and continue to do myself – and a talent for showing people more of their own wholeness, potential, and wisdom.
  • The experience to facilitate even bigger professional and life change than you might be ready to imagine.
  • More than enough perspective and openness to meet you exactly where you are, however uncomfortable or messy you might be feeling these days.
  • A great big, boisterous, easily-loosed laugh. And laughter? Laughter fits in everywhere.

Who have I coached?

  • Founders, freelancers, and determined professionals
  • Coaches, counselors, and social workers
  • People across the range of sexual, gender, and ethnic identities
  • World changers

What do I love?

  • That moment when people recognize their own wisdom, courage, and capability.
  • The perpetual cycle of learning and sharing that is coaching.
  • Locally-raised, thoughtfully-prepared food - including cooking. It can't all be coaching!
