About Sarah Cornally


Sarah Cornally has over 35 years consulting experience, working at executive and board levels in the areas of leadership strategy and development; organisational change and issue resolution; effective system and group dynamics; and executive coaching and mentoring.

Originally trained as an occupational therapist, Sarah became well known for her success in dealing with complex workers’ compensation cases others deemed ‘untreatable’. She intuitively realized that the way to resolve these issues was to look at them systemically; by treating not just the individual, but also the environment, culture and systems they interacted with, she achieved a phenomenal success rate at getting people back to work safely.

She is sought out by board directors and c-suite executives to provide consulting services in leadership, cultural change and issue resolution because of her notable reputation in resolving complex and challenging issues. Sarah works extensively with people from different cultures and countries, bridging various cross-cultural issues.

Sarah advises leaders in both global and top 100 Australian companies and many government organisations. Sarah is a partner of Acumen Global Partners which provides large scale change initiatives in medium to large and global enterprises.

Sarah provides a year long training program to organisational consultants and coaches in System Dynamics and Organisational Constellations Training (SD&OC) which is extended by their participation in The Systemic Collective post training to support their ongoing practice and development. She is a member of Pioneers Group (an international group bringing systemic work to organisations).
