“superb workshop – one of our best!”
“I feel energized and excited”
“one of the best programs I have been to!”
My productivity and work-life workshops are great morale-boosters. People enjoy the fun and engaging process, they learn new principles, choose some strategies to apply immediately, and pick up at least one good way to re-frame an old problem in a new and useful way.
Helping professionals to balance their work and home lives is vital to creating a healthy job environment and retaining key employees. Insightful leaders know that even issues beginning at home can negatively impact performance on the job.
When managers attend my professional development sessions on work-life balance, they not only learn skills they can immediately apply in their own lives, they also become better able to understand and coach their direct reports who are likely to have their own balance challenges and goals.

Listen to what my clients say. Here is a sample:
Sharon's message [about setting boundaries in our professional and personal lives] resonated strongly with the IGAF Worldwide Women's Leadership Group. From the moment her presentation began, Sharon was engaging and full of great insights and takeaways to help our professionals improve their productivity and more effectively set personal boundaries. She is a gem and we'd be thrilled to host her again, anytime!”

I was skeptical about hearing anything new about work family balancing that I hadn’t already heard of or thought of. After the session with Sharon I was very excited and energized about how many good ideas I had gotten. In the weeks following the session, I found I was thinking very differently about the balances in my life and I found myself using new tools to address them.”
Sharon worked very effectively with a room of high level, high-powered female executives but still had everyone laughing at the commonality of our struggle to find time to exercise. In the same session she was able to get women to work through some of their most nagging energy drains and actually demonstrated her coaching skills by working with one woman while the group observed. These are women who are not easily impressed and they unanimously rated her workshop with the highest available rating.”

Sharon's Lunch-&-Learn spoke to the real-life issues our managers struggle with. They got real traction from the excellent tools and strategies Sharon offered. It's refreshing to see them referring back to many of her very practical suggestions on a regular basis. We plan to make this an annual event.”
