Sherene provided tools for us to gain insights about each other and to use that information to assign the right kinds of tasks to the right personalities. We also learned how to easily decode each other's clues, gain understanding, avoid frustration and burnout, and hold others accountable without angering them. Great stuff for any relationships whether it's the board, your coworkers, bosses, direct reports, or at home. I've heard similar material before but never from a PhD that spent her whole life studying, living, and teaching it.

Dr. Sherene McHenry was the utmost pleasure have as a keynote speaker at our recent conference. From the moment we met at the practice her upbeat attitude and ability to 'roll with the punches' was an added bonus! On the day of the event, Sherene arrived self-assured, able to relate to an audience of 200 attendees with effortlessness and just the right amount of humor and heart when diving into sensitive topics. Not only do you instantly know she's well-educated and relevant in her field of expertise, she also possesses everything you want in a public speaker. We received many compliments from our attendees stating they had learned so much and it was a great diversion to "all business" speakers. Sherene brought along copies of her book and book 'flash cards' which the attendees loved and took advantage of purchasing on the spot. I would be delighted to work with Sherene again in the future and highly recommend others to do the same.
