The corner office that signifies reaching the top of the corporate ladder comes at a price. Stress levels and added responsibilities can send blood pressure readings through the roof because no corporate executive can do it alone, despite what he believes.

Who Is 
Sonja Shear

Turning ordinary people into extraordinary professionals.

Hi, I'm Sonja.

I come from a background of over 20 years in the corporate world at an executive level, before I started on my coaching path in 2014. My coaching career stemmed out of my passion for driving people to reach their full potential in their professional 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.

During my time as an executive, I encountered and overcome many businesses challenges, successfully leading teams to adapt to new market trends and technology changes. I was instrumental in launching two global brands into untapped Southern African markets. Turning multimillion-dollar losses into profitable organisations and running business distribution channels in African markets, including markets such as Nigeria, Angola, and Kenya where no formal distribution footprint existed.

I am and always have been driven by success and achieving results. My passion for developing individuals and teams has all been the driving force behind my success.

I focus on soft skills development as an instrumental part of my Executive Coaching, Leadership Development Coaching, Business and Entrepreneur Coaching and Business Growth Coaching.

“I understand the importance of developing leaders, executives, business owners and key talent within a business so that these leaders can lead others to greater professional and personal success” 

I am an “A type” personality, I am an outgoing, ambitious individual with a direct approach to matters at hand. My coaching allows me to create a space for people to be the architect of their own success. 

My coaching methodology is based on leveraging each individual's strengths and inner resources. I follow the intelligent leadership coaching process of awareness, assessment, action and achievement, as the four-phase roadmap to success.

My greatest strength comes from my experience gathered in my career where I actively coached others to achieve success, as well as the knowledge I have gained in coaching other executives, leaders, business owners and entrepreneurs.

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.

What I can do for your business.

I have an innate ability to identify real challenges that exist in businesses. I understand that often when working in a business, it is not easy to look from the outside in. To critically assess what you could be doing differently. To see what others experience of you and your business.

I have successfully helped leaders, executive, business owners and their teams reposition themselves for growth and success. Having shifted thinking from 'can't do' to 'can do' and have done.

I strengths lie in my ability to listen and empower others to understand who they are and how they can mobilise teams and those around them to achieve greater success.  

I have the ability to get teams to work together, guiding them in overcoming challenges such as diversity, accountability, delegation and people management. 

My passion to develop peoples human or soft skills will result in you having emotionally intelligent and highly functional teams who deliver results.
