Leadership Coaching for Women
I create a space for women to gather without judgement, facilitating deeper, transforming conversations and experience coaching for their life and leadership development.
My father taught me what it means to take an idea and combine it with passion to fulfill one’s potential. I’ve translated this process into my coaching – helping women with leadership aspirations to recognize their strengths and gifts, and then take the necessary actions to realize their leadership goals. If you’re looking to take your leadership to the next level, let’s talk.
Through the process of life coaching, I will work with you on a journey of transition, enabling you to access your own inner resources for the changes you want to make in your life. This exploration occurs in a safe space of graciousness and confidentiality.
Let me help you to illuminate your own value in your professional life, recognize and develop your current skill set, and expand your capacity as you move forward. It’s about intentional change and doing the work needed to accomplish success.
These conversations are for women who want to connect in a deeper way with each other in a welcoming, inclusive, and inviting space that encourages sharing. Based on various themes that will stir hearts and minds for an engaging, and interactive conversation.
Excels at the 5 Foundational Building Blocks of Leadership
A Genuine, Caring Spirit
When Sharon was the President of our local HR Chapter, I was impressed with her genuine caring spirit, her connection to what was real and important in life. I remember when she spoke at any of the meetings, she always seemed to bring into the conversation the importance of nurturing our spirits. She had a very holistic, spiritual, and healing manner about her that just made me want to be like her.
Helps Others Ignite the Fire to Discover Their Potential
Helping others ignite the fire to discover their potential is one of Sharon’s greatest passions and abilities. I’m fortunate to have experienced this firsthand over 5+ years working with her at the National Electrical Benefit Fund. On an organizational level, Sharon promotes a culture of learning and respect that demonstrates the reciprocally beneficial relationships built between a thriving organization and its human capital. She delicately balances corporate needs with those of the workforce, all with a genuine spirit of service and support. This leads to a dynamic environment, where motivated employees are empowered to realize their influence over individual and collective success. As a leader and mentor, she encourages others to grow regardless of perceived obstacles. In a difficult moment, she shared with me words of advice that I now share with my own team: You don’t need a title to be a leader. Sharon is a true asset and I recommend her, without hesitation, as both an HR professional and organizational leader.
Committed to Employee and Organizational Growth
In my work with Sharon Scibek I witnessed first-hand her dedicated professionalism. Sharon’s ability to build rapport at all levels and her commitment to employee and organizational growth are her hallmarks. Sharon has a successful track record in motivating employees to excel in their responsibilities. Her solid understanding of human resources and organizational development results in program initiatives that intrinsically blend organizational needs with employee satisfaction factors. I would recommend Sharon to any organization seeking a dedicated human resource professional with a commitment to organizational success.

Exudes First Class Professionalism
I had the privilege of working with Sharon as an external resource to supplement her hiring processes. Sharon is an absolute pleasure to partner with, as she exudes first class professionalism at all times, provides detailed and timely feedback, is extremely personable, and most importantly, she cares deeply about people, especially those in her workforce. During our work together, I had many candidates interview with her and the feedback I received from them was nothing of the ordinary. All shared that Sharon made them feel valued, welcomed, cared for, and a part of the culture she works so hard to build as a leader in HR. Any company that has Sharon leading their HR team is one step ahead, as she makes outstanding first impressions and long-lasting partnerships. Sharon is the best!
A Leadership Force and Creative Genius
I have known Sharon for nearly two decades and have always viewed her as a highly creative colleague. Sharon and I worked closely together when she was the President of the Chesapeake Human Resources Association (CHRA) and I was serving as the President Elect. Sharon was the leadership force and creative genius behind CHRA’s award winning program “Pathways to Success”, which partners with local high schools in a school – to – work program. One of the most admired qualities is her ability to make connections with information and work flow processes. In summary, Sharon is a highly regarded colleague who can always be counted on to provide an innovative and creative approach to every project.

Understands the Challenges in Today’s Market
Sharon is an absolute pleasure to work with when it comes to recruiting for engineering positions. She understands the challenges in today’s market and is always prepared to move the process along so that both parties involved accomplish their mutually beneficial goal.
Keen Observations and Concrete Advice
I was introduced to Sharon Scibek as a development opportunity to improve my leadership effectiveness. Over a period of a year using multiple tools and strategies, I was able to more confidently up my game. For me, the most effective part was periodic face-to-face meetings often focusing on a particular behavior change assignment or a timely challenge. Sharon is a thoughtful listener and was able to make keen observations and offer concrete advice. While she may push a client out of his or her comfort zone, it is done with complete agreement and in a safe environment. I am grateful for having the opportunity to assess and improve my leadership skills. I have kept a valued problem-solving resource after the initial engagement.
An Exceptional Coach
When working with my clients seeking an executive coach, recommending Sharon to represent our firm is easy. Her professional credentials are solid, her experiences are robust and her judgement is rooted in her years of knowhow, both personally and professionally. Equally important is her ability to listen, communicate and help leaders develop the critical skills required in today’s high -performance culture. It’s her keen ability to lean on her personal & professional toolbox that makes her an extremely good coach. But as business leader, who counts on people to deliver exceptional work and to abide by the highest ethical standards…Sharon leaves no doubt. I rest easily at night knowing Sharon is on the job. Her integrity makes her an exceptional coach.
