About me


About me


sarah-karlina-barber.jpg

I hold an M.Eng. (University of Cambridge) and a Ph.D. (University of Sheffield) in Mechanical Engineering and am a qualified Trigon and ISO certified coach with ten years of international experience as a manager in research (ETH Zurich, Fraunhofer IWES), industrial (BKW FMB AG, Agile Wind Power) and teaching (ETH Zurich, University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven) environments. I speak fluent English (mother tongue), German and Swiss German.

 A key aspect in my work is transparent and honest communication with a focus on personal contact and professionalism. I aim to deliver high quality, precise advice in an easy to understand way with flair, energy and passion.

My vision is a world in which every person is free to think critically, to communicate openly and to just be themselves.


I also offer technical consulting in wind energy under my other brand windspire.

During Sarah’s qualification as a Trigon Certified Coach, we got to know her as a lively, alert and highly professional person. In her practical coaching project and in the corresponding scientific report, she documented her progress and personal development excellently. As a coach, we experienced Sarah as an attentive listener with a good eye for the essentials and a good sense for lively and surprising inputs. Her field competence in technical areas, her management experience and her internationality were enriching for the coaching course - not forgetting her British humour! All this will without doubt be beneficial for her work as a coach. Good luck and our express recommendation!

My coaching experience with Sarah was insightful and exciting. She was able to quickly create an atmosphere which allowed my to feel at ease, well-understood and supported. We identified my challenges quickly and uncovered hidden behavioural patterns through focused questioning, allowing us to develop solutions systematically. The coaching set many positive things into motion in many different areas of my life. I would like to thank Sarah for the professional support and for this great experience.

I met with Sarah remotely. She is a great listener. She was able to support me in unravelling my life’s chaos to explore how i may reach my goals!

Sarah helped me to reflect my personal and professional situation. This allowed me to successfully prepare myself for career-relevant situations in a focused manner. Her professionalism and leadership experience came through during the coaching sessions. She was able to understand and assess my personality and my professional situation very quickly - enabling the coaching to be goal-oriented and productive at all times.
