Sarah Grausz

Energy Leadership Coach

Who I coach: I coach highly-motivated people and teams undergoing periods of transformation and realignment.  My clients are at every stage of their careers, and I specialize in working with staff from the global social impact and tech sectors. I work 1:1 and in groups of up to 10.

How I coach: I support you to achieve your goals by creating a safe space for curiously exploring and disarming the inner critic voices, while deepening authentic connection to self and others. I hold my clients in the utmost positive regard -- I know they already have all of the answers they are seeking. I listen attentively and I ask empowering questions to enable them to come to the answers on their own, and to commit to actions forwarding their progress.

Why I coach: Coaching has helped me so much in my own life: to advance in my career, to navigate courageous conversations with colleagues and supervisors, to show up authentically myself, and to create fulfilling relationships. I've seen its impact on those I work with, too. People I coach are more confident, motivated, self-aware, and able to balance work and non-work priorities.

Who am I? White, cisgender, pronouns she/her/hers. I'm a Gemini, an extroverted sensor and an introverted thinker. I was born in Seattle. I have lived and worked on four continents, and now call Oakland, CA home. I play and coach volleyball. I recently learned about the magic that is Pilates. Favorite podcasts: The Daily, Code Switch, Super Soul Conversations, Battle Tactics for Your Sexist Workplace, Good Ancestors, Unf*ck Your Brain, and Getting Curious.

Last year I co-founded a non-profit Quantum Impact that supports advancement of historically underrepresented groups within the global social impact sector through coaching, training, research, and advocacy. I also volunteer as a coach with The Coaching Fellowship. I am a certified professional coach from the ICF-accredited Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, and an Energy Leadership Index® Master Practitioner. I hold a Master’s of Science in Organization Development from American University.

"Sarah is a gifted coach and I recommend her to anyone interested in setting & achieving stretch goals – be it in their professional career and relationships, or in their family or spiritual life. Sarah’s gift is her ability to push me out of my comfort zone, and at the same time show deep respect for my process. She always gets my buy-in before we decide on an action, and she checks in with me frequently to ensure that our coaching is meeting my objectives."
