Sharon is the founder and Managing Director of Clear Perceptions. Clear Perceptions was conceived from Sharon’s vision of developing healthy workplaces.
For Sharon a healthy workplace begins with the leaders. Sharon believes that whatever the leaders are experiencing in their business is a direct reflection of their internal world. The first step to developing healthy workplaces is for executives to become aware of their internal world and the unconscious drivers that influence their decision-making, their communication and their workplace performance.
Sharon specialises in working with executives who are interested in enhancing their own performance, which results in improved performance of their teams and as a result improved performance of the whole business. Sharon works at depth, going directly to the source of the blocks, and her clients are amazed at how fast people notice the change. Leaders emerge from this process.

"Healthy Workplaces begin with healthy leaders"
The Foundation is an exciting new venture inspired by Sharon Faye’s life story. Her unrelenting interest in humanity’s plight came from her own struggle to survive the atrocities of childhood abuse of the most brutal kind. Sharon became a victim and by the time she was 14 years of age she was a teenage alcoholic, uneducated and living on the streets. At some level Sharon knew there had to be another way. There was another way. It is called Emotional Strength. Building Emotional Strength in her-self first and now helping others to build Emotional Strength has produced profound results in healing humanity.
The Foundation’s aim is to introduce Emotional Strength to the world through education, research and publications. The Foundation will partner the leaders in five key areas: business, education, health,law and the political systems to develop visionary solutions to intractable problems generating positive change.
Influenced by her childhood experiences, Sharon made sense of her world through systems theory. For Sharon, the behaviour of human cells cannot be understood in isolation from the extracellular matrix; employees cannot be understood in isolation from their workplaces; children cannot be understood in isolation from their family and school environments. Human behaviour is influenced by the environment. Therefore, Sharon works with the whole person’s internal and external systems. When Sharon takes on a client, she works with all the systems simultaneously like the person’s psychology, neurology, physiology, biology, sociology, anthropology, and the ecology.
Running a marathon is similar to running a small business. Running the distance challenges every part of me. Every day I discover new ways of underestimating my capabilities. When I think I have reached my limit, I discover I have got more in me and I take the next step. To run long distance, I live in the world of discovering what it is to be human. This is freedom.
