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.

“Get UN-STUCK”

Sometimes, therapists need therapy too. Let’s talk about being stuck and how to get “un-stuck”. There are plenty of times in our lives we feel stuck. Maybe you’re going through something right now and you feel stuck; stuck in making the next step towards a small or...

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...

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...

Seasons of Change

I was trying to remember that quote about Fall bringing us change and after a quick Pinterest search found “The autumn trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let things go.” So, in the interest of noting the change, I wanted to update you on a few role changes...

Leading with Love & Grace

I popped in one of my new favorite coffee shops by the One80 Raleigh office on Six Forks earlier this week, BIGGBY Coffee. Have you visited? Love that place. The baristas are so friendly, and the coffee is yum. Had my first pumpkin-spiced latte of the season and it...

Balancing Growth and Presence

We encourage our clients to be vulnerable with others, with their families, with themselves... with us in session. But we know being vulnerable is hard. I think good leaders should be vulnerable too. Vulnerability to me demonstrates humility, humanity, and...

Don’t Be Afraid

I was listening to a motivational clip earlier this month and the speaker mentioned that if we knew everything in our future we might not move forward. He went on to say that if a decade ago we saw the blueprint of the coming decade, everything good, bad, and ugly, we...
