Sarah believes the future of the accounting profession depends on our capacity to love. Through one-to-one coaching, group learning and consulting with organizations to create coaching cultures, she helps accountants access the Dimension of Possible: the place where fear is no longer the enemy.

She is an author, speaker and instructor on coaching and leadership development and an advocate for women in the accounting profession. Sarah also founded the Ellivate Alliance to provide women entrepreneurs the inspiration, practical know-how and like-minded community to accelerate their growth.

Prior to founding Intend2Lead and the Ellivate Alliance, Sarah consistently balanced client service, firm management and industry leadership throughout her career as a practicing CPA.

Brian believes in the power of intention – aligning your purpose with your actions.

Over the last twelve years, Brian has coached many accounting firm leaders to tap into their inherent power by becoming a stronger observer of their life and what holds the most meaning for them. From that broader lens of seeing the world, his clients can uncover new choices and actions and increase their capacity to lead others to more meaningful results. Brian spent the first 14 years of his career serving as a CPA and consultant at both Ernst and Young and AuditWatch. During that time, he realized coaching was the best and most natural way he could support and challenge others. He is a certified leadership coach (PCC) through the international Coach Federation, received a certificate in leadership coaching (CLC) from Georgetown University and authored the book, Auditing Leadership (Wiley, 2009).

In 2016, Brian co-founded Intend2Lead to coach accountants to access the Dimension of Possible, and he provides leadership coaching, group learning, and consulting with organizations across to country to create coaching cultures.
