Sarah Howard

I am passionate about understanding what creates collaborative and productive teams and the intersection of personal development. I have a background in psychology from Syracuse University and am an ICF trained Integral Coach from New Ventures West. As a coach, I help people to deepen into new ways of being and figure out who they need to be in order to reach their goals. I built my sales career in tech at companies at various developmental stages in the Bay Area. In order to succeed, I had to put “cultural blinders” on so I could sell in a way that was authentic to my style and contribute to the overall success of the organization by dismantling silos and creating a fluid customer experience.

On a mission to better understand what creates collaborative and productive teams, I started my consulting company where I supported small businesses, in the workplace culture and management training industry, to scale with excellence and hire their first salesperson. Clients included, The People Piece, LUMAN, and Turning Basin Labs. I came away with a deeper perspective around workplace culture including team dynamics & communication, DEI, engagement and motivation, leadership development etc. I have expanded my sales coaching and consulting services to entrepreneurs across industries and appreciate working with values based, purpose driven leaders.              

I am now bringing my experience together to offer sales coaching and consulting for tech companies to create more inclusive, human centered sales practices. I am currently available to take on new clients dedicated to challenging the status quo and ready to make a big impact on their client’s success. And yes, increased revenue will be a welcomed byproduct of our efforts!

I am also an avid skier, mountain biker, yogi, rock climber and enjoy playing guitar and walking my dog, Banjo.
