As a result of our work, I became a strong, positive leader that could create opportunities out of problems and build a global leadership team that delivered superior results in the face of adversity. What I appreciated most about working with Sherry was her ability to connect with me in a positive and exhilarating way so I could grow my leadership skills quickly. She created a new comfort zone for me as a leader.

I believe every leader who wants to become a more well-rounded and influential manager needs to attend one of Sherry’s workshops. I was accepted into the first ever Agronomy, Crop, and Soil Science Graduate Student Leadership Conference run by ASA-CSA-SSSA. The most influential skill I walked away with was the one provided by Dr. Sherry Harsch-Porter from her extensive workshop utilizing the DiSC assessment.

Working with Sherry was positive, impactful and value-added. She helped me better understand how to execute my vision to move from a traditional medical practice to a holistic health & wellness center focused on helping women maximize and preserve their wellness in all life stages. Sherry asks good questions, listens well and can integrate ideas into actionable steps.

Our scientific societies have worked with Sherry for several years now, as part of our Graduate Student Leadership Conference. I consider Sherry an expert in her field and our graduate students love her presentations! They have included Understanding Your Work Personality using the DiSC Leadership Assessment, Conflict Management, and Leveraging Yourself for a Job in Industry. Not only is she flexible, the graduate students relate with her very well. Several comments from the students include "the DiSC assessment session was invaluable" and "learning my DiSC style and how that frames my interactions with other styles is the most useful thing I have learned in my graduate career." In addition, her feedback on the development of our conference has been really valuable and she is always willing to provide feedback.

Sherry and I provided peer coaching for one another for over two years, and I found her support extremely valuable. She is thoughtful, supportive, and carefully considers the words she uses to provide maximum impact with her questions, observations and challenges. As a result, I was better able to quickly hone in on the key areas of focus for myself and my business. A true coaching professional and someone to have on your 'support team' to help you get to the next level.
