Sally Diab Barakat

Executive Coach

We live in an increasingly complex world where sources of stress abound and are relentless in making their presence a mainstay in our lives. Whether or not we are aware of it, the pressure to achieve harmony in our lives can have a significant impact on our motivation and engagement. My practice is focused on partnering with leaders to clarify and articulate what is most important to them. Together, we work to strengthen their capacity to seize opportunities, address challenges, and more effectively channel their capabilities to achieve desired outcomes.

What I Do

As a Coach, I am passionate about collaborating with individuals and teams to identify the path that most resonates with their values and shifts their energy to achieve their goals and create greater satisfaction, purpose, and balance in their lives. I care deeply about my clients, and I am dedicated to empowering them to evolve through positive change.

As a Strategy and HR professional experienced in both the public and private sectors, my areas of expertise include partnering with organizations to facilitate transformations, promote long-term growth, and coach teams toward optimal productivity.

As an adept relationship builder with a natural communication approach, I have been fortunate to work with executives and companies from a broad-spectrum of industries in different regions of the world. Working in diverse markets has cultivated my cultural awareness to understand and acknowledge the context in which people work. Specific sector expertise includes oil and gas, consulting, financial services, and entrepreneurship.

Intuition and empathy are at the heart of my work which includes championing women-led businesses through mentoring, coaching, and advocacy. Drawing from my personal experience, I recognize the importance of supporting the distinct needs and challenges faced by women working in fields where they are underrepresented, as well as all leaders transitioning into new – and perhaps unfamiliar – markets or geographies.

I completed my undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto, completed my coach training at a graduate level at Royal Roads University, and I am accredited by the International Coaching Federation.
