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 Coach & Leadership Specialist

Hi, I'm Sonja.

As an Executive Business Coach, I guide Executives and Business Owners in building their business and personal success.
After over 20 years in the corporate world at an executive level, my coaching path started in 2014 and was born out of my passion for driving people to reach their full potential in their business and personal life.  

I know all about working hard, sleepless nights, shareholders expectations and the fears of getting it wrong. Having started my career in sales and marketing, followed by extensive experience in operational execution and delivering excellence in business performance, I understand executive and leadership demands.


What can you expect from me?

I balance encouragement and support with objective opinion; I will ask the right questions at the right times, challenging your insights and pushing you to push yourself.

I create a safe space for you to openly discuss your challenges while maintaining full confidentiality.

I provide open honest feedback, which will force you to think outside the box. I will tell you what you need to hear and not necessarily what you may want to hear.

Executive Coaching

Executive coaching usually refers to coaching members of the C-suite, directors, vice president, president, or partners in an organisation. 

Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching or Leadership Development Coaching focuses more on the leaders' personal development and relationship with themselves and in turn their relationship with others.

Business Coaching

Business Coaching is a coaching process where a business owner or entrepreneur works with a coach to take their business from where it is now to where you want it to be in the future.
