Athena Alliance Members – A Closer Look at Sharone Bar-David
Since I started the Athena Alliance blogtalk radio show I have had the opportunity to share with our listeners the expertise of our diverse group of trainers, facilitators, coaches and consultants. Each member has a profile featured on our website and I thought for upcoming blogs I would share with our readers a more personal look at some of our partners and in no particular order.
When you meet Sharone you experience a very calm, confident and well spoken lady. I have enjoyed working with her these past few years as she has developed her niche in training and coaching programs that create respectful workplaces. She has recently become Canada’s first Boss Whisperer. When I first heard the term I was a little unsure as to what it exactly meant. It means she works with managers who have an abrasive tone about them and she works to help them to become more respectful with others in the organization. Sharone has a passion for helping organizations create respectful workplaces and provides the training and coaching to those who want to move in that direction. She works both with groups and individuals to identify and change those behaviours that may be experienced by others as bullying or harassment. A lot has changed in corporations in the past few decades and Sharone is definitely the go-to person when a company has any of these types of issues.
One of the things I respect most about Sharone is her commitment to results. We once had an organization that was experiencing harassment issues from a senior executive and I was called to help. I connected this company with Sharone and when she couldn’t get anyone from the senior team to return her calls or emails she declined working with them. When she called and explained that she would not work with them unless the senior team supported the program, I totally understood. She is committed to results and without buy in from the top, it was not possible. I feel very fortunate to have Sharone in my alliance and look forward to working together for many years to come.
