About Sharon M. Weinstein

Behind closed doors…Sharon’s upbringing seemed normal, but the truth was far from it. Despite projecting confidence outwardly, her life was a maze of stress and disruption. Struggling with self-doubt, she concealed her inner struggles, afraid to reveal her true self. Her story evolves from overcoming challenges to becoming a champion.  A once difficult child and runaway, she faced family struggles head-on, ultimately forging a four-decade, global healthcare career. Confronting abuse and navigating through the chaos in impoverished, war-torn countries, she mastered the art of quick adaptation, clear communication, and strategic decision-making in the face of intense pressure. Sharon emerged as a beacon of resilience. Her journey, shared with audiences worldwide 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 journey is a testament to taking control of your story and becoming a catalyst for empowerment. Sharon is well-equipped to tackle stress and crisis management in organizations that want to build a resilient workforce, boost workplace engagement, and prioritize staff well-being.
