Since this our first 2024 Vlog, we’re delighted to start introducing our iCoach Global Faculty for our 2024 program and beyond. Or as I think of them: “The iCoach Global Faculty All-Star Executive Coaches.” This is the first of several Vlogs introducing Faculty. Other Vlogs will follow in the coming weeks.
Sarah Savella, PCC, MA is one of two younger Faculty members and extremely talented. She graduated from our program in 2015. She’s held roles in Organizational Development, Talent Management, and Head of People. She’s worked at several organizations in these roles, before launching her own business, www.thesavellagroup.com several years ago. She does Executive and Group Coaching, Training, and Consulting related to training and OD work. She works with Global Fortune 500 companies and start-ups, and is now working globally with a handful of international orgs via Zoom.
Sarah heads up Sponsor Engagement at ICG. She’s responsible for finding new Pro Bono Sponsors for iCoach Global participants’ executive coaching engagements, as well as coordinating pro bono engagements with our previous Sponsors. Previously, she’s taught different classes in our program and has been excellent at helping us make tweaks to our curriculum.
Sarah and I partnered previously for more than four years at two start-ups. I observed Sarah running and co-leading Offsites, LT meetings and coaching and consulting with LT members. She was the Head of People while I coached the CEO at both orgs.
Having had this experience, gives you a front seat at how a colleague manifests values, how they treat people, and how they lead and think. Working with Sarah, I couldn’t have asked for a better collaborator. I thought she was excellent as we began. By the time one organization we worked at was being acquired and we both had to leave, I knew she was exceptional.
At iCoach Global, our participants and our Faculty receive the benefit of Sarah’s multi-dimensional skills. And- she’s still growing. She’s yet to do any Supervision and Mentor Coaching in our Program. It’s something both Faculty colleagues and I hope Sarah will get involved with starting in 2025.
Meanwhile, we’re counting down the weeks until our 2024 Professional Coaching Program kicks off on Friday February 23rd. We do still have a few of open spots in our virtual classroom. We only run this program one time per year- so this is it for 2024. Look at the 2024 Syllabus posted on www.icoachglobal.com.
