Sharon Faye Corporate Strategist BA (Psych); BPsych; MPsych (Org); Dip Clin Hyp; EMBA; MFRT

Sharon is the Managing Director of Clear Perceptions and developed her original concept of building Emotional Strength® in business. Sharon has been building Emotional Strength in business, with owners, partners, and executives for over 20 years. Her work is based on her belief that ‘whatever is going on in the business is a reflection of the owner’.

Leaders emerge from this process.

Sharon is also the Chair and founding Director of the Sharon Faye Foundation. The Foundation’s purpose is to conduct research into Emotion and demonstrate how Emotional Strength is essential to improve the education of our children, the health of our people, the quality of our leaders, the effectiveness of our law and the value of our economy. This purpose will drive the Foundation’s research and publishing activity in six key areas: identity, family, education, business, law and politics.

Sharon’s dedication to improving the experience of being human originates from her own experience of recovering from severe childhood abuse. Sharon developed Emotional Strength within herself and has dedicated her life to building Emotional Strength in others. Emotional Strength is the ability to respond in an open and vulnerable way in the face of intense emotional experience.

Sharon was awarded a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology in 1994, a Bachelor of Psychology from Edith Cowan University in 1995 and a Master of Psychology (Org) with Distinction from Curtin University in 1998. Her research focused on testing the structure of affective well-being. Sharon went into private practice in 2000. In 2008 Sharon presented the concept of Emotional Strength at the International Congress of Psychology in Berlin. Sharon completed an Executive Master of Business Administration from the University of Western Australia in 2011 and her research focused on building a sustainable business model in the private sector.

Sharon lives in beautiful Perth Western Australia, raised four children and has seven grandchildren; she runs marathons and loves good coffee.
