Sandie Bass, Founder
Industrial & Labor Relations in Organizational Behavior
Co-Active Training Institute
I’ve had an almost 20 year career as a Marketing and Human Resources leader before transitioning fully into leadership coaching.
In my corporate life, I was the head of Human Resources for Medtronic Latin America, and later the head of Marketing Communications for a $2.5 billion division of St. Jude Medical. As a consultant, I’ve worked with start-ups, as well as Fortune 500 companies across a variety of industries.
Today, beyond being a coach, I’m also an entrepreneur, published writer, and triathlete. Over the past twelve years, I’ve served as an active member of the Board of Directors of an Ivy League networking group, planning large events to connect smart professionals across Los Angeles.
So why coaching? The real, transformational changes in my life—the ones that took me from shy kid to community organizer, from following a traditional career path to jumping ahead into senior leadership roles--have come from a series of informal coaches coming into my life, seeing what’s possible for me, and encouraging me to make a bigger leap than I would have otherwise made. Coaching allows me to pass that gift on to others.
Awareness and action lead to results
The type of client who's most successful with coaching is the one who's committed to making change and willing to do the work to get there.
Every client comes to coaching wanting results--a promotion, a new job, better outcomes from his/her team of direct reports, having a more profitable business, etc. The only way to get results is to take action.
During our work together, we'll put our focus on getting clarity around what you really want, and the thoughts, beliefs and actions that have been holding you back from getting it. With this knowlege, we can then work on breaking old patterns and creating new pathways towards success.
In between sessions, you'll have assignments, designed individually for you, to get you moving in the direction you want to go, coupled with accountability for completing those actions. And with this, we get progress.
