LifeForward Ltd is an international talent consulting and coaching business, supporting leaders to help them develop a clear vision and strategy for their business and their people.
The company was founded by Sarah Reynolds in 2015 to work with leaders and individuals to develop the dynamic, forward-thinking state of mind essential to grow and develop in today’s fast-paced, global economy. Today we provide leadership coaching to senior executives in business and partners and directors in the professional services sector. We offer personality profiling, using Insights Discovery®, and we provide talent consulting to develop a business strategy aligned to the needs of the future.
Prior to setting up LifeForward, Sarah worked at Deloitte for nearly 20 years. A qualified chartered accountant, practising as an International Tax Advisor, both in the UK and overseas, she has a wealth of business experience to draw on for her clients as part of a coaching/mentoring relationship. During that time she also led the creation, development and implementation of key global strategies, working with senior leadership to facilitate the roll-out of global talent and learning strategies at all levels.
The global environment today is demanding. New technologies continue to enhance virtual working environments presenting a real opportunity for businesses to harness global expertise. But disruptive technologies also bring challenges and the need to review standard ways of working and doing business to maintain competitive advantage. In such a rapidly changing environment, it is critical that leaders have a clear vision for their business and can put in place a robust strategy to drive the business towards clearly defined goals. Coaching helps to focus on what is needed in order to achieve such goals.
Working with key stakeholders, both individually and in teams, LifeForward helps drive business strategy, leadership and talent development. Through consulting, coaching and workshops we help businesses set out a clear vision to develop and implement a strategic plan for the future.
“Everybody is a genius but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
What is Coaching?
Coaching has many labels; it is often difficult to know where to start when searching for the right coach for your needs. The philosophy at LifeForward is simple: we all have the ability to take control of our lives and make the key decisions that will shape our future career, enabling us to fulfil our potential. Coaching helps us to understand and appreciate the competencies that others see in us. In order to change, we first need a good level of self-awareness; we learn how the choices we have and the decisions we make impact our current and future opportunities.

Client feedback on leadership coaching
Coaching is beneficial at all stages of a career. When looking for a coach, the challenge is knowing who, and what, to ask. Coaching provides thinking space, a time for reflection and an opportunity to focus on the future. Its impact on an individual, an organisation or a team can be significant. It can dramatically improve performance and motivation, remove mental barriers to success and give improved clarity and a sense of purpose to move forward in areas of difficulty or concern. It can often help to build an individual’s self-confidence and self-esteem, empowering them to take on new challenges, a new career or a move in a different direction.
