Meet the Power Behind Our Horse

Horse Power Strategies drives people from the inside out!

Do we “pour” into them to help them achieve and realize their dreams and goals in our business?

Hi!  I’m Shari Pheasant and I am passionate about building PEOPLE FIRST businesses. 

I have been in the workplace for over 40 years. 

I started working at 15 while living in a foster home after reading Zig Ziglar’s See You At the Top.  I became an entrepreneur over 30 years ago and currently am blessed to also own an automotive maintenance and repair shop with my husband Jeff.

My consulting company, Horsepower Strategies is my passion. And passion is my passion.  I love inspiring people to lead.

Traveling the country interviewing and working with small business owners and teams for the last eight years has taught me a lot and given me the experience to offer you to learn from all of our mistakes, collectively.

Who We Work With

I have worked with companies generating 40 million in yearly revenue, small businesses with five to eleven employees, high performing teams of 15, larger teams of 500 with sub teams, individual leaders and leadership teams. It has been my honor to hear from both sides, to be able to have crucial conversations and to facilitate transparent, vulnerable meetings that lead to greatness.

What unique experience is provided by Horse Power Strategies?

Here’s what I know.  Knowing yourself in a new way is where it begins.  Understanding your leadership styles, modalities, and their effectiveness is the first step to maximizing your value, core competencies, and sphere of influence.

The second step is understanding others. How they think, communicate and feel. This leads us to learn about perception and the effects of the filters that come with it.  Once we master these strategies, we can move on to the next level teamwork and leadership development.

This builds innovative cultures of creativity guided by accountability and responsibility for every company and business. And that drives me.  That is where my passion lies.
