Tread Gently. For the emotionally clumsy.

10 steps to navigate emotionally charged situations

“Tread Gently: for the emotionally clumsy. 10 Steps to navigate emotionally charged situations” launched  on July 5th 2019. It was written for the people like me – the people who aren’t innately good with managing themselves emotionally but have realised how important it is to be able to do so. Based on all the people I’ve ever met that’s around 75% of the population… The steps developed for me over the past 10 years of training people in how to manage themselves and be a better version of themselves, both at work and at home.

Workshop Testimonials

"As part of my organization’s training and development program, I engaged Sharon to lead her Emotional Intelligence for Leaders workshop several times specifically for people managers. I consistently received positive feedback from employees who attended Sharon’s session – participants cited her valuable insights, humour, and experience in our industry as reasons to recommend the workshop to their colleagues.

News of Sharon’s impactful content travelled quickly throughout our company, and her sessions were consistently in high demand with long waiting lists! I would recommend her not only as an engaging facilitator, but as a seasoned professional who can translate her experiences into concrete takeaways for attendees."

Colleen Olsen, former Senior HR Specialist,

Vision7 Communications Inc, Toronto

“Our agency has worked with Sharon and Be A Better You since early 2016. We’ve had many workshops with her, and in 2018 I commissioned Be A Better You to deliver 10 Tackling Tough Conversations for our Toronto and Montreal offices. The workshops were very well received – evidence since suggests people are taking on board what they learned in the workshops and having better conversations.

We are in the process of developing plans for Sharon to deliver more training to our agency between now and the end of 2020”

Sunil Sekhar

VP HR FCB Canada


“As head of training and development at BBDO Canada I frequently engaged Sharon Jones of Be A Better You to deliver training workshops for our people. Our participants tended to be smart, impatient, skeptical people with a ' prove this is a good use of my time' mindset. Sharon's workshops on topics like Emotional Intelligence, Motivating Teams, Professionalism and Business Writing were always lively, fast paced, packed with strong content, deeply relevant and useful. Our people appreciated the concrete tools they could implement right away. Her combination of intelligent information , challenging assumptions and down to earth style had me bringing her back over and over again.”
