About Sharon Sayler, MBA, ACC, CEC
Sharon Sayler is an international communications trainer, speaker, best-selling author and CEO of the strategic communications firm Competitive Edge Communications, a company devoted to teaching professionals around the world how to be courageous leaders using critical behavioral relationship, leadership and communication skills.
Through her workshops, courses, coaching programs, and products, Sharon’s practice is a unique blends of expertise to help her successful, high-achieving clients know how they show up in the world, why they do what they do and what to do instead if they want a different result.
Her style is direct and to-the-point to make positive behavioral change work with a wide range of clientele — private clients, executives, entrepreneurs, universities, corporations and organizations such as Delta Airlines, Yale’s Graduate School of Management, Women’s Executive Leadership Council, International Coaching Federation, American Society of Training and Development, Integra Telecom, and Oregon Department of Employment.
Professionals come to Sharon when they want to have more influence, respect, and to be taken seriously—and to be seen as the leader they are meant to be.
For example, Eva is a 37-yr-old and the founder of an international corporation. She thought the reason her prospective clients weren’t taking her seriously was because of her age and gender. It wasn’t, it was her body language. After only a ninety-minute session, she stopped sending the wrong nonverbal messages. She saw immediate results that afternoon. She is now perceived as the leader she wants to be.
She delivers easy-to-implement, high-impact success strategies for turbo-charging your leadership, relationships and communication (both verbal and nonverbal) including getting people to do what you want them to do, gender differences, boundaries and expectations, being seen as a leader, team building, and insight into why groups behave the way they do.
Consider, Lynn, a VP at a multi-national corporation for 9-years came to me because she wanted to be the Senior VP level. Can you imagine, for 9-years she had struggled to get taken seriously. She couldn’t understand why she couldn’t break through…. With just a few body language tweaks, and her consciously understanding the messages to send, she got that senior VP job. Now, it wasn’t at that multinational; two months later she was stolen away by another firm at even higher pay plus the title she had wanted for so long.
Sharon is dedicated to a diverse set of clients:
• Entrepreneurs who face unique challenges as CEOs, as direct team leaders, and as the “face of” or marketer representing their own firms;
• Corporate leaders who work within more well defined and often constraining conditions, often having to communicate difficult news;
• Marketing and sales executives who must maximize their message, trust-building and rapport while managing their own staffs and direct reports;
• Financial and sales executives who must market their products or firms to the public or to institutional clients;
• Professional women in non-traditional industries that need to be taken seriously by the entire team and lead diverse groups;
Those are just a few of the examples of the types of industries, issues and people she works with. Her distinctive approach to the coaching role is built from an understanding of the belief set of successful people and how successful people get even better. With this understanding and the application of coaching skill, a developmental process is tailored to take advantage of the positive aspect of successful people’s beliefs and to overcome the negative aspects that can interfere with development.
