Shar McBee | International Keynote Speaker & Leadership Expert

Shar McBee had never received leadership training when she was suddenly put in charge of managing 500 people. It was hard, and she was only 26 years old. Then a wise mentor taught her a secret that made it easy to get people to say YES. A broadcast journalist, Shar left her job at CBS News and spent 10 years doing volunteer work all over the world. Working with (and supervising) thousands of diverse people from different cultures, she learned that people really aren’t very different. Shar says, “A mother in a hut in India told me how proud she was of her daughter who could carry two pots of water on her head all the way from the village well. A princess in a moated castle in Belgium told me almost the same story. Different circumstances, of course, but with the same delighted emotion.” “Shar McBee’s concept of ‘To Lead is to Serve’ is pretty simple, pretty profound, but it is a concept and thought that has really stood the test of time.” – President George W. Bush Shar McBee has been writing and speaking about leadership for 20 years, to audiences large and small, from 3000 people to 3. She has been practicing yoga for 40 years. Today she puts the two together. Her bestselling books include, To Lead is to Serve and Joy of Leadership. Her newest book is Leadership with a Twist of Yoga. Keynotes: • NEW! Leadership with a Twist of Yoga • Leadership & Creativity for Women • To Lead is to Serve • To Lead is to Laugh • Storytelling that Sells & Sizzles • Joy of Fundraising Leadership Trainings: “If people feel included, they will support you. If they feel excluded, they will undermine you.” – Shar McBee My goal is to inspire you to be the leader you want to be by offering simple, concrete solutions to everyday challenges. How do you create cooperation? What makes people give you support? How do you turn reluctant employees into willing participants? My leadership trainings address these issues and more perplexing, challenging, and illusive management mysteries. As a leader, I hope you won’t suffer like I did. Instead, I’d like you to receive what you deserve – respect and admiration. Each training is unique, determined by what you hope to achieve. All the trainings help you deal with the most valuable and important component of your leadership position – the people. Get started now: Contact Shar McBee from this profile.

This message just made my day.

“This message just made my day. Not because this happened to you, but because it showed me that I’m not the only person this happens to.”
