Putting Conscious Leadership at the Heart of Business

Hi I'm Sarah Watts, a Leadership Coach & Culture Consultant. I'm here to support you to create human-centred spaces for people to thrive. This can look like individual coaching to gain clarity on your true nature and purpose, facilitating teams to create more trust and cohesion, and working with organisations to embed a culture of creativity and inclusion.

My approach is based on a set of premises which are:

  • Awareness really is the first step to change – we can’t change what we’re not conscious of. It starts with taking responsibility of our own stuff and getting to the truth of what’s really going on
  • Creating an engaging and inclusive workplace is beneficial for the company, the employees, the customers and any other stakeholders
  • Creativity and adaptability are the top skills businesses need to thrive and these are only possible in psychologically safe workplaces
  • It takes intention and will to create a consistent culture and as much about the how aa the what
  • People will pay more attention to what they see than what they hear, therefore we must walk the walk not just talk the talk
  • Culture is co-created but effective leadership sets the tone
  • Change is as much an inner journey and emotional intelligence is key
  • Everyone has equal worth and are creative, resourceful and whole
  • The whole is greater than the sum of its parts – inclusion, belonging and teamwork are essential

"I am not the product of my circumstances. I am the product of my decisions." Steven R Covey
