About Us

Leadership coach
Sarah Gillet Couto

Who are you truly meant to be, and what do you love doing that makes you happy? Life is too important to be stuck unfulfilled in your work.

I started Gillet Couto Consulting because I saw the power of helping someone go in the right direction with their career. After being a senior leader in the banking industry for 18 years, it was a coach who inspired me to think beyond what was beyond my comfort zone.

Life is more meaningful when we measure and appreciate the sum of who you are: how you communicate as an executive, your relationships, your energy style, and most importantly, your core purpose.

My approach to executive coaching is about helping someone become better at who they are in the totality of life, not just work.

The power and potential of a team rely on the speed of trust and the ability to execute on objectives. Leadership training and third-party facilitation empowers business leaders and their teams with the tools, insight, and guidance for increasing impact and maximizing profits.

Our Gillet Couto Consulting team can create a customized coaching and training experience that best fits your organization. We work with you to design the ideal business leadership solutions for your team. Each of our programs may include a variety of assessments, resources, and tools to complement the leadership experience.
