Sally Park, founder and Chief Inspiration Officer at SPARK Empowerment Coaching, is an ICF certified professional coach and accomplished business consultant who empowers her clients by literally re-kindling what deeply matters in their personal and/or professional lives, expanding the possibilities, then co-creating a plan to achieve profound and sustainable results. Working with Sally is like working with an experienced, wise and trusted advisor. Through the lens of her own personal and professional evolution, she empathetically understands how meaningful transformation is not a solo-sport. To this day, her clients come back to her for reinforcement and support on their journey, sometimes many years after an initial coaching engagement.
Clients hire Sally because they want to feel empowered, to play their best game, to move intentionally forward as they experience change, challenges or feel "caught up" in a variety of work and life scenarios:
- feeling stalled in a major mid-life transition
- persistent personal and/or professional communication breakdowns
- help with professional "brand upgrades"
- navigating career transitions
- optimizing time -> work/life "rebalance"
- ready to play bigger in work and life
- to create a realistic, manageable, energizing business strategy and plan
- team, company, life leadership challenges, and more...
"Although I wear many hats - life and leadership coach, small business owner and consultant, parent, yoga teacher, athlete - what brings me the most satisfaction is helping others to unravel their perceived limitations, to help them experience their greatness, their unique gifts, and find their competitive edge... so that they experience that profound shift from blocked to unstoppable." - "Coach Sally"
Sally knows first-hand that life events can easily drain our energy and limit our creativity, rendering us blind to seeing the path forward to a new and empowered way to go after our dreams. A committed lifelong student of personal and professional excellence, Sally draws on lessons learned from her own life-redesign experiences, professional coaching certifications, yoga and meditation trainings, to help her clients to experience "challenges" as an invitation to discern between perceived and real limitations.
Brief Overview of Sally's 5-Step Client Breakthrough Process:
Step 1 - Sally will first help you get granular about your vision for what you want to achieve, and to get clarity around the "who, what where, when and why" behind your vision.
For example, if you’re a small business owner, you will work together to clarify the short and longer term vision for your business, and in this step you may work through the following questions:
- WHERE do you need to be in 1 month, 6 months, 5 years?
- WHAT are the roadblocks, potential competitive threats?
- HOW will you remain relevant to your market?
- WHO do you need to be in order to lead?
- WHO may need to join (or leave) your team?
- WHEN will you know that you'll need to course-correct?
Or, maybe you're now ready to step off of your corporate career track to embark on an entrepreneurial adventure: You'll work together to breathe life into that vision - your "why" - and to identify and manage any distractions, identify and eliminate limiting beliefs, reconnect with your authentic strengths, and embolden your confidence so that you can fully embrace your vision, to bring it from fantasy into reality.
Step 2 - Sally will brainstorm with you to co-create specific, accountable actions. You will purposefully leave space for the possibility of revisiting your vision, doing any course correction that may be required: “If you want to achieve this result, how can you make that happen? By when will you commit to doing this? How will you know you’re on the right track? How can I support you along the way?”
Step 3 - If needed, Sally will work with you to upgrade your skills. There may be critical skills you need to sharpen, acquire or build upon to achieve your desired results. For example, if you’re launching a business, maybe you'll need to upgrade your leadership presence, create/refine your social media strategy, or fine-tune your time management skills. If you’re considering a career pivot, it may be a good time to re-assess your strengths, rekindle or rediscover your deeply held passions, and work on the redesign of your personal brand, resume, and social media presence.
Step 4 - Next, you'll work on optimizing your environment, both physical and cognitive. When you can subtly and intentionally merge action with intense self-awareness, you can step into your "flow" - a state that can be essential for manifesting your dreams. This is a very crucial step, as finding your flow will serve you in all areas of your work and life. Clients are often surprised to find out how critical it is to uncover and manage environmental triggers.
Step 5 - This fifth and final step is where you'll co-create your playbook for mastering your mental states, diffusing any lingering fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs, allowing you to continuously course-correct, to experience your renewed confidence and leverage your empowered perspective.
In her uniquely warm, intuitive and empathetic style, Sally provides the support and a custom coaching program of direction, intent, and accountable action so that you can achieve your vision and embrace your deepest held desires. Each coaching engagement varies, but the outcome is always the same. Sally's guarantee is that her clients will feel empowered - literally fired-up - to lead a life of direction, intent and passion, and confident that they can use new frameworks to sustain the outcomes that they have chosen.
"If you can transcend from the dark rut of disempowered thinking to the bright light of an empowered agreement with reality, you will see opportunities not barriers. You will see the finish line, not the hurdles.”
― Steve Maraboli "Life, the Truth, and Being Free"
What CAN empowerment mean for you?
Each of us have a different lens through which we would describe "a life well lived." What is common, however, is that when we feel that we're at the helm of our own lives, consciously choosing how we want to experience each moment, we feel empowered. Empowerment is the ability to see and truly believe that we are free to choose how we want to play in this game called life. These perspectives and insights - this sense of personal empowerment - are available to you through coaching, and will impact every aspect of your life.
Professional coaching brings many wonderful benefits: Fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, more effective time management, greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence.
And, the list does not end there! Those who undertake coaching with Sally can expect appreciable improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of meaningful goals.
