Today’s workforce has changed:
A demonstrated shift in the 21st century workplace demographics has occurred, as many organizations have been successful in the recruitment of women and people of color; but have not been as successful in their advancement and retention, with many organizations still being hierarchical in nature and having large power imbalances with the majority of the power-base still residing with white men at the top of organizations. In addition, for the first time five generations are working together in today’s workforce; and while all women experience many of the same challenges in the workplace, there is a reported difference in how women of the majority group and women belonging to non-majority groups experience barriers in the workplace. This representative change is challenging leaders and their organizations in a way like never before to shift in their very way of being.
Who We Are
We are a team of multidisciplinary practitioners, (Executive Coaches, Management Consultants, Organizational Development (OD) practitioners, Experiential Facilitators, Thought-Partners and Advisors) with front-line experience leading across difference in the military, government, corporate and social sectors; both domestic and abroad.
We help leaders cultivate diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) workplaces by helping them bridge across differences to effectively manage a 21st century workforce. Because the multiple dimensions of diversity and the intersections thereof, reflected in today’s workforce demand it. We also focus on leaders because they are at the nexus of the organizational change paradox aimed at creating more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces. And, they often struggle in implementing desired changes required to help shift organizational culture and systems to be more aligned with espoused values and stated intentions.
We also focus on helping underrepresented women because they are often the least supported and most vulnerable in the system. And we know, when we solve for the most vulnerable in a system, everyone benefits.
And as systems thinkers, our approach is always viewed through an integrative, holistic lens steeped in the latest research and behavioral-based competencies, informed by demonstrated large-scale change practices; as well as, humanistic and positive psychology principles delivered through a process consultative model; with an experiential learning approach and reinforced through one-on-one coaching support.
Organizations are multi-dimensional systems with a complex web of interconnected parts that conspire to shape human behavior and thoughts, both conscious and unconscious.

Who We Work With
Here’s What Clients and Teams Have Said About Our Work
Prior to our conversation I was worried about my career progression, and trying to determine which path would be right for me. Sabrina helped me identify my core values and make a decision that aligned with both my heart and my head. She also encouraged me to step into my own strength and negotiate for terms that worked for both me and the organization, creating a win-win situation. She helped me step into my own power and feel more confident and self-assured about my contributions. Because of Sabrina's expert coaching, I now encourage other professional women in the tech field to shine their brightest light, to question assumptions, and to say yes to professional opportunities, on their own terms. Sabrina didn't give me strength; she helped me find and grow my own.
I know Sabrina as both trainer and coach. As a trainer she is always offering well-researched and provocative material presented with compassion and humor. More than most other trainings I have experienced in my career, her inputs lead to deep self-reflection as well as action. As a coach, her insights offered me a clear path forward. She helped me show up in my workplace as authentic and open to change. In working with her I always felt encouraged, supported, and challenged. Anyone able to work with Sabrina Coleman should consider themselves very lucky indeed.
When I began coaching with Sabrina I was preparing for a job transition but felt stuck in initiating my search. During my work with Sabrina, we delved deep into my personal values and my cultural background, which helped me understand and integrate my full and authentic self with my career aspirations. This work was truly transformational for me. It helped me to identify unexplored channels of myself and to feel more in control over my direction. I continue to revisit notes from my coaching sessions and to practice what I learned from Sabrina. Sabrina’s empathy, experience, background in psychology, and ability to weave things that are spiritual with what is known from research and literature is a rare and powerful combination. I feel fortunate I had a chance to work with Sabrina—the work we did together will continue to be an important force in my life and career.
