Innovative Leadership Strategies

Our strengths-based approach to powerful leadership, the High Impact Leadership™ Model, helps you tap into your “other 90%”  to raise your self-awareness and listen carefully, make great decisions, innovate solutions, and optimize your performance. We blend proven leadership approaches with mindfulness techniques and lessons from horses to help you achieve your goals with clarity and peace. Supporting the  High Impact Leadership™ Model is our original leadership approach developed in 2009 based on our work with horses and humans, the ACDC Leadership Model™ (see below). This model teaches you how to build trust and respect, strengthen relationships, become a fantastic motivator and inspired leader, and catapult your success. Contact us to find out how these powerful models can empower you and your team and get started with a Leadership Discovery Session (see below)!


Gain valuable insights on creating vision, alignment, and executing your mission. You’ll discover your leadership style and get recommendations for elevating your impact and influence. We’ll identify specific actions you can take now to improve your leadership effectiveness and professional success! The session includes the DISC Work of Leaders online assessment and a private 60-minute coaching session with Shari via telephone. Contact us to book your session!


Do you get the respect and performance you desire? Our ACDC™ Leadership Model provides a stepwise approach for leaders to inspire and motivate others to best meet goals: The model is based on an integration of more than 20 years of business leadership and sales experience with over 25 years working with horses. The core of the model centers on an understanding of emotional intelligence, as well as nonverbal communication and an awareness of our mind-body connection.


“Shari presented ‘Take the Reins to Leadership Excellence: Developing a Leadership Culture’ to our company during a week-long offsite meeting. She kept our group engaged and actively contributing throughout the session…The concepts she brought up triggered insights and ideas for both me and others… I highly recommend Shari to any company that wants to develop and improve their leadership and team!” – Sarah Holland, Director of Business Development, Unanet

“While working with the inaugural Leadership Fauquier group, Shari’s dynamic and interactive approach to facilitation kept the group fully engaged.  Her variety of exercises ranged from high energy and creative to cerebral and focused, which allowed the range of personalities and operating styles involved to each excel and grow. Her attention to interpersonal skills also established an open communication base from which the group has continued to build. I highly recommend Shari for any organization developing programs in which people are cultivated into leaders.” – Scott Harlan, CEO, Talk19 Media
