Executive coach, mediator, facilitator, trainer.

Sharon is an internationally accredited business executive & life coach and mediator.  She brings to her coaching and mediation practice, a background in law and nearly 20 years experience in conflict resolution, as well as a deep curiosity about people and how they interact with the world.

Sharon has a fundamental belief in the power of executive, business and life coaching to ignite new possibilities for understanding and action. As such, she works in partnership with executives, managers and individuals to develop their self-awareness and their competence to engage more skillfully with the world.

As a workplace and relationship mediator, Sharon assists parties in conflict to handle situations more effectively by helping them to move beyond the ‘presenting issues’ and appreciate how their own interpretations and behaviours contribute to the conflict. From a point of deeper understanding, Sharon works with parties to craft mutually beneficial outcomes and a more constructive future relationship.
