Sarah McArthur is my dear friend of the heart and battle buddy. In 2018, we collaborated with thought leaders across all sectors to publish our book Work Is Love Made Visible. Spearheaded by Sarah, its message, as she writes in our preface, is a tipping point for all leaders today guiding each of us to recognize “our call, our gift, our purpose, at any point and at different points of our lives.” Sarah is a brilliant, insightful, and inclusive thought leader who has worked together with and been mentored by some of the greatest leaders of our time. Her contribution as advisor and thought partner to individuals and leaders who recognize that “leadership is a matter of how to be not how to do” and who are working together towards a bright future is essential to our global society reaching its highest potential for all.
Over the years, “Marshall Goldsmith” has become a household name in the leadership, executive coaching, and publishing worlds. This would not have been possible without Sarah McArthur, chief operating officer, creative partner, and content advisor to me for two decades. Sarah is a visionary thought partner and advisor, knowledge work leader, editor, and writer who brings the highest level of excellence, integrity, initiative, and service to her work. Talented and inspired, Sarah’s humility, focus, and discipline make her uniquely capable of working together with others to put ideas into action and implement them for results. If you are looking to develop your content, expand your audience, build your brand, and spread your message globally work with Sarah.
Sarah is a rock-solid sounding board. She’s helped me flesh out ideas that make my written words sharper, stronger, and more substantial. We first met when she was COO of Marshall Goldsmith’s organization and I joined his 100 Coaches initiative. I admired Sarah’s thoughtfulness, thoroughness, and integrity. I’ve since experienced first hand that exceptional collaboration is Sarah’s superpower.
Sarah has tremendous positive influence on individuals and groups. Her ability to lead people and manage projects, her organizing capabilities, and her amazing thoughtfulness are powerful. I greatly appreciate knowing and working together with her as part of Marshall Goldsmith’s 100 Coaches.
Sarah McArthur is able to juggle many balls at the same time! I was impressed with her all the way through our project. She knows the fields of management, leadership, and executive coaching well and can add her talent and skills to any publishing project that comes her way!
It is rare to find a collaborator that “gets it” (the subject matter) and “gets you.” After years of wandering in the editorial wilderness, I finally found a creative partner who brings out the best in me and has the “know how” and “know who” to turn my dreams into reality as a business thought leader.
