Meaningful change for a meaningful life.

Hi, I’m Dr. Sarah Sarkis

I’m a psychologist by training, and a certified executive and performance coach by practice. I also moonlight as a writer and speaker. My integrated approach is big on science, low on bullshit.

I’m available for individual, team, and organizational collaboration.

Gratitude - today and everyday - can have a transformative effect on your overall mindset. 

What are you thankful for today? ✨

ICYMI: Last week, I announced my partnership with the EXOS Performance Advisory Board @team_exos ✨

I started collaborating with EXOS last year as a consultant on an emerging project they were working through. This partnership came at the exact right moment during the pandemic for me. A welcome 7th-inning stretch just when the monotony of quarantine was reaching its peak. 

Another silver lining from this radically transformative time. 🙌🏼

What I was struck most by was how EXOS approaches the process of human performance— the tempo is fast, timelines are ambitious, goals are audacious, and the morale is contagious. 

So, when I was invited to join the inaugural team for the EXOS Performance Advisory Board, it was a hell yes for me. 💥

Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of spending a virtual afternoon with the EXOS Team and my fellow PAB members. I’m so excited to collaborate with and learn from these amazing people. 

Stay tuned as we continue to reimagine the human performance riddle. 👊🏼

Here’s to the real investments in our life. ✨

Don’t let the pursuit of greatness/performance/success fool you into thinking any of that shit matters. 👊🏼

My sister’s voice was kind but serious. Pressured. “Mom’s taken a bad turn.” “Do I need to come home?” “Yes.” “Ok.” I had known it was coming. The week before she died, I went to the beach near my house and begged the universe to take her quickly. I had started to...
