Sonja Shear - The difference between a great and an average business executive is the ability to acknowledge personal shortcomings and to delegate those areas of responsibility to someone else. Another trait that signifies superior business acumen is an executive who will dig deep to ensure optimum levels of performance - like appointing a leadership and executive business coach to help develop both short and long-term strategies and goals.



Executives and Business Leaders

Executive Leadership Coach & Business Growth 

Hi, I'm Sonja.

As an Executive Business Leadership Coach, I guide Executives and Business Owners in developing themselves and their teams, resulting in growing their businesses and achieving success.
Soft skills are essential for people in leadership positions who need to manage people and direct their efforts toward a desired outcome.

I offers a range of soft skills development programmes and related coaching programmes.

My passion is developing peoples soft skills, leading them to becoming even more successful individuals in their personal and professional life. 

Soft skills often also referred to as Human Skills, are a blend of personality traits, behaviours and social attitudes that allow people to communicate effectively, collaborate and manage conflict successfully in all aspects of their lives.

People in teams who have good soft skills tend to have strong situational awareness and emotional intelligence, which allows them to navigate challenging working environments, adapt to changing circumstances while still producing positive results. 

All executives have skills they want to improve. Whether it be building trust, delegating more effectively or becoming more decisive. Together we will focus on developing your strengths, identify and mitigating your weaknesses and growing you as a leader.

I so this by offering a confidential, safe space, acting as your sounding board. My role is to challenge your thinking and push you outside your comfort zone.
