Phyllis Sarkaria San Diego, California
Leadership Coach, Executive Coach, Team Coach
Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute certified graduate
When I was growing up in West Texas, I dreamed of being a cow wrangler, world traveler, or writer. Instead, I pursued degrees in Finance and worked in banking, consulting, and the energy industry early in my career. I spent a decade as a regulatory lobbyist before a developmental rotation through human resources sparked a passion for bringing good business sense to HR practices in order to create great places to work. This led to a rewarding career as an HR executive in the energy and life science sectors, augmented by teaching at the university level and achieving an additional graduate degree in Ethical Leadership.
I bring my experience as a member of senior executive teams to my work with senior leaders. With straight talk from the heart, I balance a willingness to push executives to be the best leaders they can be while demonstrating care and respect for their professional fulfillment and success. I work with leadership teams and individual leaders facing a range of business challenges to identify issues, align people and processes, and move forward with improved results.
With more than 25 years of leadership experience, I draw on past responsibility for functions as diverse as strategic planning, merger integration, and team effectiveness; leadership of multimillion-dollar system implementation and integration initiatives; and support for commercial and technical leaders to build capability in their functions and improve individual and organizational outcomes. More recently, I have worked with companies in start-up and growth phases of the corporate life cycle. These experiences have been augmented with certifications by the Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute through the Haas School of Business, Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder-Centered Coaching, and Systemic Team Coaching, Judgment Index, EQi 2.0/ EQ360, MBTI, and Thomas Kilmann Instrument.
