I heard George Bush quoting Shar McBee on television. Then my son gave me her book To Lead is to Serve which is deep, engaging and full of really good stories.

Shar’s seminar on the joy of leadership was a gentle, smart, spiritual prod towards reaching one’s full potential. The Women in Standards group is a collection of accomplished professionals in the field of science and technology policy, an area entirely ready for women to assume positions of leadership. We came away thinking of ourselves not as hard-driving women striving against all odds to reach the top, but as women and human beings conscious of a responsibility to help others reach their goals- the mark of a true leader. We were inspired, encouraged, and uplifted. Thank you, Shar, for an evening we will not forget.

Shar McBee helps you understand things that perhaps you already know, but she shows you how to put them in a new light.
Shar McBee had never received leadership training when she was suddenly put in charge of managing 500 volunteers. It was hard to get people to say “Yes.” Then a wise mentor taught her a secret that made it easy. Since then Shar has taught the secret to over 150,000 people in live audiences and to millions more on TV and radio appearances.
Shar is the author of two bestselling books: To Lead is to Serve which was quoted by the President of the United States on television, and Joy of Leadership which went to #7 on the Amazon Business Bestseller list.

I have been a fan of your incredible work for years. You are always inspiring and reminding me to keep my eye on the big picture.
Your support has shaped me into the person I am today.
Shar quietly and efficiently organized an excellent program for children, “Explore & Explain.”
Your delivery was awesome; straight forward, logical, plain talk that was profound in its simplicity.
