I’m an assessor with Xenonex for the ILM Level 5 and Level 7 qualifications in coaching and mentoring and Level 4 in Managing Equality and Diversity. I am a self-employed coach, facilitator and OD consultant, providing services to both organisations and individuals.
Prior to setting up my own business, I worked in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in a range of HR and OD roles. My passion for connecting evidence with practice led me to embark on a research contract with Manchester Met University which investigated the impact of coaching, action learning and taught programmes on line manager confidence and effectiveness.
I’m naturally curious and love reading your assignments – especially your coaching diaries!
Hello, I'm Sarah...
Sarah Acton is an assessor with Xenonex for the ILM Level 5 and 7 qualifications in coaching and mentoring and Level 4 in Managing Equality and Diversity. She is also a self-employed coach, facilitator and OD consultant and has previously worked in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in a range of HR and OD roles.
I am working with a mixture of organisations and individuals from a range of sectors including healthcare/NHS, not-for-profit and education.
"Sarah was my coach over a period of several months and I would not hesitate to recommend her services. I found Sarah to be methodical, professional and highly skilled as a coach. But, more importantly, I also found her to be kind, warm, funny and an exceptional lister. I learned a huge amount during the process of working with Sarah, where she was able to coach me on a number of professional and career-related issues, always taking a holistic approach to various discussion points. I was able to navigate some particularly challenging work scenarios thanks to Sarah's coaching."
