About Sarah Jones Coaching and Leadership Coaching
Leadership Coaching was a natural progression for me. As an executive for 25 years, serving extensively the pharmaceutical, biotech and other sectors – you can say “I’ve been there” as a leader and have an intimate understanding of the challenges you face.
As a well-rounded executive, I draw on my personal experiences and industry knowledge to help you uncover innovative solutions to your challenges. Leadership Coaching will help improve your leaderships skills and career prospects.
With over 25 years’ of experience in communications (public relations including crisis and change communications, government affairs, patient advocacy, internal communications) I have spent 15 years in the pharmaceutical & biotech sectors (agency & in-house), so I understand those specific industry challenges.
See about me for more information on my pharmaceutical & biotech sectors & other sectors I’ve supported.
My industry experience extends to banking and finance, facilities, fintech, commercial, residential property investment, gaming, industry associations, legal, logistics & supply chain, occupational health and safety, professional services, and telecoms.
Leadership Coaching For New, Aspiring & Experienced Leaders
Leadership Coaching – Taking your first, or next leadership role can be daunting & challenging for many reasons, especially in the complex biotech & pharmaceutical sectors. I’ve been there myself – as a new & experienced leader.
Leadership Coaching is now considered an essential practice in organisations ranging from SME's to large corporations and I’ve helped new leaders & executives across a range of issues including:
- Understanding the leap between managing & leading
- Avoiding undue stress & burn-out
- Leaving the old job behind & delegating effectively
- Understanding how to adapt leadership style
- Confidence & imposter syndrome
- Identifying & understanding their leadership style & adapt
- Conscious leadership to motivate & co-create with teams.
As an experienced leader, you might have been on a leadership journey but realise we need to go further to develop a fuller, more conscious internal mindsets & skills to succeed. For example:
- Dealing with conflict
- Conscious leadership & listening
- Influencing & gravitas – upwards, to your team & peers
- Leading in a hybrid, volatile, changing world
- Identifying your leadership career path & purpose
- Emotional intelligence & listening
- Flexible leadership
- Active listening.
With the recent global changes & wider acknowledgement that we live in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous (VUCA) world. This means that as a leader, we need to think of leadership from the ‘Inside-Out’.
Leadership Today in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous (VUCA) World
Now more than ever, leaders need to thrive & navigate in a world full of vulnerability, uncertainty, complexity & ambiguity. In this environment, and to function effectively in a hybrid world, it’s necessary to have a new leadership mentality, skills, and behaviours.
No longer is it enough to simply externally exhibit actions and rewards that demonstrate success as a leader; achieving these goals is now just as important for executives and teams.
Leadership starts from within – I call this Inside Out Leadership – where what you do, and who are you are align your personal, career goals and organisations goals.
Inside Out Leadership is a methodology I’ve used to help leaders understand that, you will succeed in leading your teams and throughout your leadership career- if you first understand and lead yourself & have the ‘right’ internal mindset, as well external skills to succeed.
Whether you are an individual, or looking for leadership transformation within your organisation, I help you to find the purpose, value, behaviours, skills, and attributes necessary to power both personal and professional goals.
Leadership coaching for the conscious leader. Find your unique voice and lead with clarity and purpose. Develop the skills and awareness necessary for effective leadership. Learn how to transform your team into a force for good and watch them soar!
Become a more innovative thinker, equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to lead your team through changes. My leadership programmes help you find new mindsets and approaches to problem solving- keeping you ahead of the competition while inspiring your team to achieve more.
Most people think of resilience as the ability to bounce back after a tough situation. While that’s part of it, resilience is about having the courage to keep going no matter what. It’s about rising after you’ve been knocked down and learning from your mistakes. I’ll help to build resilience in yourself and your team, so you can tackle any challenge life throws your way.
Good leadership is essential to creating a great employee experience. If you aren’t sure where to start or feel like you’re stuck- I’ll work with you on a one-on-one basis to help you build the skills and confidence needed for effective leadership. You’ll learn how to create a vision for your team, motivate and inspire your employees, and manage difficult situations effectively.
You’ll have the skillset to create an exceptional employee experience, where your team takes pride in their work and contributes passionately to the company culture.
Women in Leadership
The need for more women in leadership has never been more critical, and there is a mountain of data to support this.
In the last few decades, there has been a push for greater gender equality with a focus on the need to close the gender pay gap. Whilst good progress has been made there is still a notable disparity of women in leadership roles.
Sarah Jones Coaching is perfectly placed to help women reach and then excel in leadership roles. Women in Leadership will be a hot topic in 2022 and something Sarah has a wealth of personal experience in.
Did You Know?
Organisations with a higher representation of women in leadership roles and on their boards markedly outperformed the organisations that don’t and, studies have also outlined that companies with greater gender diversity, not only in their workforce but directly among senior leaders, are significantly more profitable than those without.
A report by McKinsey & Company found greater gender diversity on the senior executive team corresponded to an improved bottom line. For every 10% increase in gender diversity, earnings before interest and taxes rose by 3.5%.
