Sarah Young

Founder, Entrepreneur, Leadership Coach

Zing Collaborative

Hi, I'm Sarah, and I'm grateful to work with big thinkers, game changers, and innovators to increase their positive impact in the world. My clients are high-impact individuals, teams, and organizations who are serious about making a positive dent in the universe. Our work together is part strategic thought partnership, part coaching, part leadership development, and part co-creating magic through high-impact experiences. I care deeply about triple bottom line (people, profits, planet) and am a member of 1% For the Planet. When I'm not working with my incredible clients, I'm usually somewhere in nature or experimenting in the kitchen.

Brings to Board

I am a coach and facilitator and am skilled at bringing together a group in service of a shared why/purpose; clarifying that shared why/purpose when it's unclear; and helping to bring together different people toward a shared outcome. I have experience in the corporate world and experience as an entrepreneur, and I also have experience working with many types of clients and individuals from the public sector, the private sector, and the nonprofit sector. My hope is that I can bring together these experiences and skills to be of service to a local organization doing great work.

Hopes for a Board Seat

The opportunity for service/servant leadership, personal growth, professional growth, and the opportunity to learn about communities and organizations that I might not be interacting with regularly as part of my day-to-day rhythms. Since starting my business in 2013, one of my main 'why's' was to be able to give back in meaningful ways. My hope is that I would be able to live out this 'why' in a small way by contributing as a board member. Additionally, I hope to build new relationships and get to know people who I might not interact with or know currently.
