CAREER COACHING & MENTORING
I provide strengths-based career, leadership and returner coaching to talented women, either directly or via their employers; helping them unlock their professional potential and grow happy, authentically successful work lives.
I’m Sarah Clarke and prior to setting up Shine Brighter in 2016, I worked in the fields of employee happiness, coaching and talent development for nearly 2 decades.
I’m proud to have led the people team that achieved the #1 ranking in The Sunday Times Best Companies to work for listings for 2015 and 2016. I’m totally fascinated by and passionate about the professional potential of people – in particular women!
My profound interest in personalities and human potential was confirmed when I qualified as a strengths and performance coach over a decade ago. I’m also certified to conduct MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator), Hogan’s Leadership Forecast Series and Gallup’s CliftonStrengths psychometric assessments which I use throughout my coaching practise.
Before becoming a freelance career and leadership coach, I worked at several fast-paced and dynamic organisations, each one with their own unique and vibrant culture. All of these companies epitomise innovation, passion and creativity and these values have helped shape my own work philosophy.
Originally from Nottingham, I now live in Buckinghamshire with my husband, two young daughters and cat!
