Leading From The Heart

The One80 Insider, our internal company newsletter, is regularly distributed to our team. The purpose of our newsletter is to build morale, colleague recognition, wellness strategies and tips, showcase team projects and blogs, highlight important announcements, and much more! Sarah Coates, LCMHC, Founder and Practice Owner, writes the cover story titled “Leading From The Heart” which serves as a personal blog and means of authentic, real-time communication of an important topic or relevant thoughts to be shared with the practice. Sarah’s hope is to lead from the heart, with deliberate authenticity and truth, while encouraging morale and thought-sharing.

The Secret to Longevity

I made a new friend named Orit Ramler and recently had her as a guest on my podcast. Orit calls herself a "citizen of the world" as she has lived all over the world! Orit is a life coach and author and she just published her first book, The Box of Life: A Guide to...

The G.R.O.W. Principle

I coined the G.R.O.W. Principle in 2018 when recognized as the Dynamic Entrepreneur of the Year by JNOW magazine. The award presenter asked me to speak about how I founded and grew a successful company. I talked about the G.R.O.W. method I developed and I still...

YOLO

This month I celebrate my 48th birthday. Which is a sobering thought, as it’s just shy of 50. Fifty years is half a century! Some of you are young enough to conceivably be my kids. I have high school & college friends with kids your age! Some of you are about the...

My One Word

I’ve been choosing a word for the year for the last 6 years. An executive coach I met introduced me to the book “My One Word” by Ashcraft & Olsen, and I’ve been letting the universe (God) give me a word ever since. My practice is this: about November/December I...

Thankful. Joyful.

It’s the season to be thankful. Americans all over the country are celebrating Thanksgiving next week. This got me thinking about thankfulness, gratitude, and joy. It seems to me that it’s easier to focus on being thankful during the Thanksgiving season. In my family,...

Turning Lives Around is personal, too

Next week my husband and I celebrate 20 years of marriage. Twenty years feels like a lifetime and then you have people like our own Phil Guistwite (and his wife Jeannie) who just celebrated 51 years of marriage! I pray that my husband and I are fortunate enough to...

Friends

I don't know if you watched FRIENDS, but for my age group, it was a staple of our weekly TV lineup. The iconic group of friends- living in the same building, drinking coffee together, sharing life together. Wow. Isn't that what we all long for? Friends. Human...

Heavy. Hearted.

My “second” Dad growing up was Jewish. He’s my dad’s best friend & “brother”. They served in the Air Force together, went to medical school together, and ended up in Fayetteville, NC together to practice and later partner up in business. Sid saved me one day when...
