I just attended the best one hour learning session in my career while at the ASAE Great Ideas Conference. I received more useful tips about management and leadership during this session than I have in 30 years of professional business management and continuing education courses. If you want to teach your managers how to be more effective (or need to brush up on your own skills), I recommend hiring Shari Harley to help you build business relationships that really work!
Every manager (from CEO of a Fortune 500 Company to a shift manager at McDonalds) should be required to take ten hours of training with Shari before being allowed to manage people.
It’s both my pleasure and honor to acknowledge Shari for presenting her “How to Say Anything to Anyone” talk to the University of Denver community during our Professional Development Week. Shari’s candid style and humor won over the packed house of faculty and staff the moment she began speaking. And to no surprise, she received the highest ratings of all of our speakers during the week. So much so in fact, that bringing her back next year is a “no-brainer.” So if you get a chance to bring her into your organization or conference, do it before someone else books her.
I have been going to meetings and conferences for 25 years and have seen many, many speakers. I was instantly interested, entertained, and learned something new, useful, and inspiring from you. You are talented, funny, and insightful. I will use your system and teachings not only professionally but also personally.
Wow. That was the first thing that registered in my brain, when you got going. Wow. This lady is funny! She really knows what she’s talking about! I frantically took notes on things that I could apply to the issue I was dealing with that very morning. Listening to your speech made me realize that the entire issue we were having was due to a communication break down between a customer, my ops team, and myself. People were emailing instead of calling, which made certain people feel that their needs weren’t a priority. The customer was calling the wrong person because they assumed they were the right person. Basically, the whole thing boiled down to communication, or lack thereof- Lack of asking the important questions, Lack of asking the customer how they wanted to communicate with us around a specific topic.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. After your session, I dashed back to my rental car and jumped on the phone with my team and then with our customer. The issue was resolved right there in the parking lot.
Thank you once again for making such a big impact and helping to solve my workplace dilemma. I’m looking forward to sharing your innovative way of approaching communication in the workplace and applying it to my work life in the future.
I have been talking about you and your material since your class. It was superb.
I have been to three really good classes in my 24 years in law enforcement and your class was the best. I would be willing to send folks to any of your topics on communication skills and/or leadership.
You’re helping me make great people better people……I’m so proud of how my employees are applying what you did for us.
Thank you so much for the time you spent with Frito Lay this morning! It was fantastic – the team raved about it all afternoon. Some people just have the “gift” of public speaking — and you’ve got it!
You definitely were the highlight of the meeting.
I cannot tell you how many emails I received from attendees who said they have never attended a training seminar that they enjoyed and got so much out of. All have asked if we could do it again, and those who didn’t attend are hoping we will offer the training again so they may attend the next time.
I’ve seen Shari in a room with over 250 people, and we were all dying laughing while learning some of the best culture and work relationship tips.
She has great advice, is a fantastic speaker, and her stories and lessons are relevant to every person in any audience.
Shari, I thought the session was great. I was surprised by how much participation we got! I am really happy that so many in the group seem very open to the feedback.
