For more than ten years Shari Cohen has collaborated with senior leaders and teams at major global companies and organizations to break through to their full potential. Examples include: coaching senior leaders and teams at AOL, Nielsen, Telx, and the Brookings Institution to improve communication, leadership presence, influence and strategic thinking; developing and delivering leadership programs for the Rockefeller Foundation, NRDC and Doctors Without Borders, and serving on the design team for an Aspen Institute Innovation Lab used by Fortune 500 companies.
