First of all, I must say that the Minnesota Leadership Center is full of amazing people who put personal growth and leadership as their top priority. I was able to experience coaching sessions with Shari Harris through the MLC and I can say that my experience was nothing short of amazing. Each session was an hour long and simply started with a conversation about where we wanted to go with it. Shari as my coach helped to guide the conversation and we picked out several areas that I wanted to grow in leadership. Throughout the whole process, Shari maintained a great level of professionalism and helped me to focus on what I needed to do to grow as well as help me set goals and keep me accountable to them. During our sessions, it felt very natural and never forced. Coaching is something that I would recommend to anyone and everyone who has the time, resources, and desire to grow as a leader.

While attending Shari Harris’ Leading from Here to There class, it was so apparent she had a natural ability to lead and teach others. She’s and excellent listener and is able to repeat the content of what was just discussed in an intelligent manner.

Having been employed in a public speaking role myself for a time, one of my biggest pet-peeves about speakers is an inauthentic and hollow presentation: words for the sake of words. In contrast to these, Shari Harris is far from inauthentic and anything but hollow. Her passion for leading and encouraging others comes from having been led and encouraged herself, and her words are full of her sincere excitement in sharing her experiences for the building up of others. Shari is easy to work with, clear in her communication, and truly passionate about building up strong leaders who are the fullest and most alive people there are. It was a pleasure having her as the keynote of our event.

We invited Shari Harris to come and speak at Medtronic, a well-attended event. Her presentation was on Walking in Faith in the workplace. Shari shared so many inspiring stories, especially the importance of bringing your whole self to the work environment. Many times we find the Lord calling us to take on new projects or leadership roles that we are not sure we have the capability of doing (so we think), but God knows our strengths and where He wants us to grow in. It’s important to listen to Him and to trust Him when he is calling us to take on new challenges. Shari also shared the importance of being kind to our fellow employees and to show our hearts at all times, you just never know what kind of impact that may have down the road. Shari is a very motivating speaker and will engage your guests to share their stories and how showing their faith in the workplace have impacted their own lives.
