Sharon Wingron has a passion for helping people develop themselves – for their own benefit and the benefit of their company. Both her schooling and her work experience have contributed to a deep understanding of how the mind works and how to help people work together to improve their work environment, reduce stress and increase the bottom line. This is why she founded developPEOPLE – to help companies achieve their goals through better understanding and more effective use of people.

She has over 20 years of staff, line, and consulting experience in diverse industries and environments. But what truly sets Sharon apart is her energy, wit and candor. She is a refreshing, authentic professional who delivers engaging presentations, offers skillful facilitation, and insightful coaching and has access to the most effective tools and resources.

In 2002, Sharon launched her business as an assessment supplier, workplace-learning and performance consultant, facilitator, and coach. The extensive knowledge and experience she has with her assessments and learning tools along with her dynamic personality make for a powerful and successful combination.

Sharon is known as a thought leader in her field. She is St. Louis’ first Certified DiSC Trainer and is a Diamond-level distributor–in the top 1%–of the worldwide Inscape Publishing Authorized Distributor network. She is an established Learning Leader and one of the first 250 professionals to earn the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) designation.

She actively contributes to the Workplace Learning and Performance (WLP) profession (also known as the Training and Development profession) through extensive involvement in the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD). She is a retired Director of the National Board of Directors, past Chair of the National Advisors to Chapters (NAC) and Past President of the St. Louis Metropolitan Chapter. Sharon has also previously served as an Examiner for the Kansas Award for Excellence and the Missouri Quality Award.

Her client list ranges from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses and her work experience spans 18 countries and four continents. The companies she has worked with include Anheuser-Busch, Inc., The Boeing Companies, Sanofi-Aventis, Keller Labs, Microsoft and Wells Fargo. She was chosen to deliver programs in India, Egypt, Hong Kong and most recently, Russia. This is because of her cross-cultural understanding and her ability to build rapport and communicate effectively with people from around the world. 

In 2011, Sharon branded her business, DevelopPEOPLE. Through her work, Sharon helps people improve their Personal Effectiveness to achieve their Organization's Performance goals through enhancing their Leadership Excellence.

Sharon holds an MBA from Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville and a B.S. in Engineering Management with a Psychology minor from the University of Missouri – Rolla. She is an adjunct professor for Washington University in St. Louis and a contributing author to Rising to the Top: A Guide for Success.

She enjoys horseback riding, traveling, reading, relaxing with old friends, and meeting new friends.
