Having Sarah Rawz as a career coach was a wonderful experience. She accompanied me for six months as I made the significant transition from fulltime employment to sole entrepreneurship, my first time in thirty career years without a regular paycheck. After uninspiring past experiences with the occasional coach and mentor, I did not expect much… From our first conversation, however, Sarah was different and made a significant difference.
Sarah had a direct and unassuming approach, which gave me the confidence to speak freely. She had a gentle and caring manner, which allowed the conversation to unfold naturally and feel unpressured. When I asked for feedback on my own work product, she would more readily seek my views and react to them than delve into her own judgments. I saw that Sarah’s more open approach kept the focus on my ambitions and intentions, rather than layer on her personal expectations.
I highly recommend Sarah as a transition-companion, which she was par excellence for me!
Over the 6 months [of working with Sarah B], I have become more aware of my reactions to situations that arise and I am more aware of what choices are available to me. I feel more at ease more of the time and I feel more powerful. I am better able to see when I’m pushing and can decide whether to keep pushing or to step back and allow things to unfold.
I contacted Sarah earlier this year after her post on internal gremlins. I’d been struggling with an internal gremlin I just couldn’t make sense of and when I saw her blog, I knew she’d know how to help me. Our sessions together progressed through layers of deep exploration that eventually led to embracing my gremlin and learning its’ purpose. We even named it! The most important part of our work resulted in a greater comprehension and appreciation that I have a ball of windy chaos that surrounds me. She assisted in recognizing and teaching me tools to help me take ‘baby steps’ in managing the intensity of the wind (and the gremlin) while remaining clear in my intentions and purpose. The gremlin will always be there as its part of who I am. However, without Sarah, I would still be in the wind of chaos confused, powerless and with a gremlin raging out of control. This is true coaching and transformation. I am so happy I listened to my gut and asked Sarah to help me.
Sarah was my transition-from-corporate, start-up-an-enterpirse, be-an-entrepreneur coach. And, eventually my friend. Sarah is empathetic, practical, focused, and engaged. She knows when to push. She knows when to listen. She has lots of great practice advice. She is a great coach! I highly recommend her.
