I brought this out of the archives as it’s as relevant today as it was in 2013 when I first wrote this Q&A. Those that know us the best are the most skilled at getting past our “defenses” and we can be emotionally manipulated… Hi Sharon, I have a hard time setting boundaries with family/friends/coworkers […]

I have no problem saying ”no” most of the time but I find myself using the wrong words and tone of voice. So I come across as being uncooperative and not a “team player” because I don’t communicate as eloquently as I would prefer when choosing to say ”no”. Any tips you can share? Good question Lynn…

Does reality shake you up?  Maybe it’s “Now or Never….” Are you a “Hard-Headed Woman” or a mushy “Teddy Bear”? Do you see life with “blue-suede shoes,” rose-colored glasses or green with envy? Okay, I’m all played out of the Elvis Hit Tunes Titles…. “The thoughts you choose to dwell on move you through time. […]

Hey Sharon, I think I may have developed a bit of a Yes Man mentality over the years.  In most cases, it is probably to avoid conflict (out of fear, right?) – my justification is that I am a team player, I am flexible, I want to keep everything running smoothly, and am hopeful and […]

“Sharon, we met briefly at Presentation Power on Sunday! My friend and I were the two young African Americans who were rocketing questions at you! I wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for taking a few minutes and giving me some great advice! It has already transformed my life…” ~ Frederick M. Fulcher […]

“Never have I been made so aware of precisely who I am and the countenance I present when communicating at a professional level, with immediate effect my life changed and significantly for the better. There are other coaches and techniques but none stand by comparison to the teaching of Sharon!” ~ Efrat Cohen L.P.I., C.I.T.R.M.S, […]
