“A good idea is only good if it can be implemented. Too often, we come back from coaching programs full of great ideas, only to fall back to our comfortable routines. Sara’s coaching is direct, one on one with the team. She makes sure that the rubber hits the road.
It is where ideas garnered through endless coaching programs are actually implemented and followed through so that teams can continue working on the job at hand, but at the same time have another team player devoted strictly to implementing best practice ideas. Her efforts helped us incorporate what we know is important and we are now on the
road of developing our own unique brand in the marketplace.
Thank you Sara!”
“Sara had the audacity to take us back to the beginning, helping us structure our time schedule. At first, I had my doubts, asking myself if the training was going to be basic. However, she was able to help us find flaws in our practice even in the simplest things like managing our schedule. We then went on building a strong business on a solid foundation, learning (and accepting!) to structure our clientele, to define our service offering, to effectively orient our business development strategies and our communication plan.
Simply put, I work less, make more money, and am able to leave on Friday knowing that all the work for that week was done. As already mentioned, I was able to go from having a practice to having a structured and successful business. And this is just the beginning. I will be meeting Sara on an annual basis in order to make sure that my business stays aligned with my goals and to continuously improve its effectiveness.”
“I just implemented the "really really means to you" technique in a meeting. Wow!!!
This potential client is a tough cookie and it will take time for him to become a client, but I realized that even though I thought I was selling the dream before, I was selling the plane... If only just for that, your coaching is worth every penny!”
“Too often coaches bombard you with numerous ideas but there are too many of them and they lack structure. Your process enabled us to make small changes every month without feeling overwhelmed. There is a great quote by Voltaire that goes along the lines that perfection is attained by slow degrees and that it requires the hand of time. Most coaches don't get that, you do. ”
“Over the past year, Sara Gilbert of Strategist has become an invaluable resource to our team.
At the Rouleau Group, to stay at the top of our field, we constantly strive to fine-tune our business development strategies, elevate our service offering and our clients’ experience. Sara’s expertise and systematic approach have helped us identify where to focus our efforts to get tangible, incremental results and to reach our goals faster.
Her professionalism, timeliness and dedication are outstanding. Implementing her recommendations have simplified our daily operations, making our team more efficient and performant.
We have no hesitation in recommending Sara Gilbert of Strategist to any entrepreneur looking to get results by working smarter… not harder! ”
“Sara is one of the most focused, professional and creative out-of-the-box thinkers that I've met in a long time. It's not easy for me to partner with people after one meeting, but after a conversation with Sara and the level of professionalism that she brought to the table I couldn't go wrong. Sara will definitely be getting my business in the future and any business that I can refer to her, no questions asked.”
“Sara Gilbert, presented to SAP Montreal for the Montreal Women’s Business Group, open invitation to all employees. The presentation was on “Putting yourself first”. It was well received by our employees.
Sara is a great presenter with excellent presentation skills, which provided us with good strategies for time management, empowerment and setting priorities.
We specifically like her Two Minute Rule, and what is the Two minute Rule?……Well you will have to ask Sara Gilbert.
I highly recommend her as a business coach, or workshop facilitator.
Thank you Sara once again!”
“Following a significant and rapid increase of our business volume, we felt the need to have recourse to the services of professionals capable of assisting us to better organize ourselves, in order to maintain and even increase the level of quality of our services.
With their structured and extremely efficient approach, Sara and her team have been able to provide us with value added ideas in addition to enabling us to significantly increase our productivity.
Today, we see a significant improvement in our productivity. It has allowed us to concentrate our efforts on what really matters: more productive contacts with our customers.
With Sara's help, we have been able to develop a methodology that will enable us to not only strengthen our current relationships, but also support an even more important volume of business without neglecting any of the details so important in the success of a practice in the long term.
Thank you, Sara!”
