Anchor 1


Are you at a place in your career where you want a more fulfilling job but aren’t sure where to start? A lack of clarity and purpose can keep you stuck in unproductive thinking. Worse yet, your fear of jumping from the frying pan into the fire keeps you in an demotivating job.  Your perspectives may be limiting your choices, and it’s time to change that so you can increase your impact.  In career development coaching, I will navigate you through your limiting beliefs to help you design a fulfilling career where you can show up authentically at work - a career that fits you, your strengths and talents.

Are you seeking to grow in your current position but not sure how to go to the next level of your career? Perhaps you have an informal leadership role at work and you want to leverage your strengths to improve your performance.  Whether you have a formal title or not, you may be a leader at work faced with increasing expectations both with managing people and tasks.  Through your performance, you have to inspire the best in your team. Ask yourself the following - Do you have the imposter syndrome? Are you unsure of how to delegate tasks and spend more time on what you’re passionate about? Do you find yourself second-guessing your decisions, and engaging in people-pleasing? Do you struggle with difficult conversations with those you manage and manage you? Do you feel lost about how to move to the next level at work? A clear sense of purpose prevents burnout. I can work with you to leverage your strengths for better performance, and work through limiting beliefs that may be holding you back.

coaching for women leaders

Women face unique challenges in the workplace; dealing with both internal and external barriers.

I’m passionate about working with women leaders to navigate their limiting beliefs so that they can get out of their own way and allow their authentic self to show up. If you're a female leader looking to increase your impact and influence, I would love to work with you to create an action plan for your goals. Together, we can break through that self-dialogue that hinders your progress towards success, and create your professional vision that is anchored in authenticity.  I'm focused on both head AND heart-driven coaching that will open doors for you to move forward as your most confident self. Are you ready to get started?

Team Coaching builds stronger, more inclusive teams through enhancing trust. As the term implies, coaching occurs with a team as “the client” and may, where appropriate, also include elements of facilitation and training. Team coaching may focus on one or more of the following:

  • Building trust within the team and developing a culture of respect and collaboration

  • Learning how to have difficult conversations productively

  • Creating stronger accountability and commitment

  • Identifying or recommitting to the team’s purpose and goals

  • Revealing the team’s hidden dynamics

  • Identifying team roles and challenges

  • Addressing obstacles to achieving optimal team performance

I offer team coaching services to create inclusive teams through an initial assessment, team sessions as well as 1:1 coaching for the team members, so that team members can more fully integrate concepts and ideas.

I highly recommend Sharanya if you need help with your career path. Sharanya worked with me to help me find my strengths and what career and business path was ideal for me. Sharanya is not only smart and knowledgeable, she is insightful, understanding and kind. I learned a lot during this process and only wish I had done this earlier in my career.

I worked with Sharanya Rao for five months in determining a new career path. Her interest in helping me discover precisely what motivates, challenges, and excites me created the perfect foundation to revamp my resume, cover letter, linkedin.

Don't hesitate anymore, today is the day to make a change!


If you used to enjoy going to work, but continue to find yourself questioning if this is the right path, then I highly suggest working with Sharanya Rao. From day one, she was committed to partnering with me on my journey of self-discovery, and was fully present in helping me discover what values, interests, and skills were not being honored in my current position. After eight vigorous sessions, I have a better idea of what drives me as a professional and I now have a strategy for completing my career transition thanks to the support and accountability from Sharanya. This truly has been a huge milestone in not only my career, but also my personal life. I have zero regrets signing up and would encourage anyone out there who is looking for anything from discovering the right career to leadership coaching and development, she does it all! Thank you Sharanya, you have impressed me with your wisdom, guidance, and power as a career coach.
