His passion is the same whether speaking to a small mentoring group or an auditorium full of people. His messages are crafted to challenge your current way of thinking and perspective in order to build the mental capacity necessary to achieve your highest level of potential.
When he is not addressing crowds, Corey remains committed to operating in a training and motivational mindset. He continues to feed his lifelong passion for coaching as a basketball skills and development trainer for a nationally recognized organization in South Carolina.

“Coaching is not about problems—it’s about possibility, transformation, dreams and hope.
It’s about changing yourself and changing the world, and being unapologetic in doing so.”
Sharma loves people. And if there is something she loves more than people, it’s helping people grow in their Personal Leadership.
It was through the work as an internal management coach for a large non-profit organization that Sharma discovered her love for coaching and leadership development. Her largest endorsement for coaching and leadership development, however, comes from the life-changing experience of being coached herself, and participating in a number of transformational leadership development experiences throughout her career.
Sharma is an Associate Certified Coach and a Mentor Coach through the International Coach Federation (ICF), the professional association that establishes ethics and standards for professional coaching. She is also a Certified Leadership and Talent Management Coach through the Workplace Coach Institute, a Certified Professional Coach through the Center for Coaching Certification, and has completed the Fundamentals of Co-Active Coaching through the Coaches Training Institute. The coaching certifications are all accredited through the ICF, where Sharma is a global member. Sharma is also a Certified Human Capital Strategist through the Human Capital Institute and is experienced in strengths-based coaching using Gallup’s Clifton StrengthsFinder. She has completed the Columbia Business School Executive Education & the Institute for Personal Leadership’s program titled “Personal Leadership,” which is based on breakthrough research in psychology, neuroscience and other scientific disciplines, and a rigorous study of the inner lives of great leaders. Sharma is also a proud graduate of Leadership Charlotte Class 34. Her career spans human capital and talent management, communication and public relations strategy, and external affairs management. Sharma is a graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelors degree in Mass Media Communication and the University of Central Florida with a Masters degree in Mass Communication.
When she is not coaching clients, Sharma enjoys working with the youth by serving on non-profit boards and also through her church. She loves beaches, reading, good food, and spending time with her husband, family and friends.
