The International Coach Federation (‘ICF’) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential”.  At iolite consulting, we are happy to work with you to support you in the way that best helps you meet your goals.

Sarah draws on her own life and work experiences in her coaching work.   She adopts a client-centred and pragmatic approach to coaching; initially seeking to understand what the client wants to achieve.  Sarah integrates aspects of positive psychology into her coaching approach and her  work is heavily influenced by Carl Rogers.   She works on the premise that each of us has within us the answers we seek; and her role as a coach is to support her clients in finding those answers.

  • Improve their strategic thinking

Sarah Rodgers gets my highest recommendation as an executive coach and mentor.  I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with Sarah on my professional development. Sarah was able to provide guidance and assistance to me during a very difficult period in my career. I was confronted with addressing my management style and the way that I was perceived by other people.  Sarah assisted me in making changes to my behaviour to allow me to be more successful in a work environment.  Sarah was able to help me turn the situation around in a period of 3 to 6 months.  It was an experience that I always look back on as being totally transformational.

I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough.  I connected with Sarah immediately.  She is authentic and genuine, and has a very natural, non-judgmental approach to Executive Coaching.  Sarah has helped me develop the confidence and belief in myself that I can move onward and upward in my APS career by challenging my thinking and helping me see the value in my skills and capabilities.  Highly recommend Sarah as an Executive Coach.
