About Sharon M. Weinstein

Behind closed doors…the hidden complexities of Sharon’s upbringing were shrouded in a facade of normalcy. Despite outward appearances of confidence, the reality was a dark tapestry of stress and disruption. Battling low self-esteem, she harbored a fear of exposing her vulnerable “inner truth” to the world. Her narrative transforms from victim to victor. A once difficult child and runaway, she defied parental trauma, crafting a remarkable four-decade healthcare career that resonates globally. Navigating abuse, disruptions, and tumultuous environments in impoverished war-torn countries, she learned to swiftly adapt, communicate clearly, and make strategic decisions under extreme duress. Sharon emerged as a beacon of resilience. Her journey, shared with audiences across the world and documented in 22 books in multiple languages, inspires and supports others, offering a profound exploration of stress and crisis management and reigniting oneself. Sharon’s story demonstrates the power of mastering one’s narrative and emerging as a force of empowerment. Sharon is uniquely qualified to address stress and crisis management in organizations that want to cultivate a robust workforce, enhance workplace engagement, and prioritize staff wellbeing.
