Sharon Newport is outstanding! Sharon successfully facilitated a retreat for the Anatomy Scholars Program, helped us to identify the individual needs of the incoming scholars to design and facilitate a Work and Life Balance module, and then supported scholars with coaching to help them successfully manage their professional and personal goals.

I gave Sharon a vision for what I wanted the team to "feel" after the retreat, and somehow she managed to take that very broad vision with little direction and bring it to life. She's great at listening and understanding your needs. Sharon delivered an innovative and rejuvenating in-person staff retreat for ONA. Sharon brings a thoughtful and energizing presence. Her unique approach supported our team in reconnecting and re-attuning to one another using their whole selves and our shared values after being virtual for the last two years. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Sharon answered the call to help with a team retreat and was able to put together an amazing half-day agenda that energized, grounded, and focused the team. She took the time to understand my goals as a leader, but then went the extra step and also took the time to better understand the team and their needs. This made the session holistic and tangible – because we each got what we needed. It was a pleasure to work with Sharon and I look forward to her continued engagement with me and my team.
