What is "Mental Toughness?"

Mental Toughness is a tool to assist purpose-driven individuals and teams to gain the mindset required to be world-class, consistently. If you or your team are underperforming due to fear, doubt or lack of clarity or confidence, especially in high-pressure or high-stakes situations, I can help!


"I can honestly say that my confidence has increased in every way, and I now feel like I am a force to be reckoned with. In the last three months, our North American team was awarded the highest market share growth in US in work from home category by NPD along with other significant milestones. My level of influence, from being able to successfully challenge our CEO, to empowering my team and gaining the respect of my peers, has gone up 10 fold. I couldn’t be happier with how this year has gone and with the coaching I’ve received from Sheryl."

Kelly Nagel
President & General Manager, Jabra N.A.

"Sheryl and her Limitless Leader System has helped me go from playing smaller than I could in terms of my title and area of influence, despite a high level of expertise to recognizing my title as CRO and speaking up about it. I now own my worth, and I’m positioned accurately with more confidence than ever. This makes me feel much more powerful and in control of my destiny. This is a win/win for myself and my organization. "

Christina West
Vice President & General Manager, Infinity West Partners

"Prior to working with Sheryl Kline, I would have been far more anxious about performing in front of our highest leadership, and I would have played safe. Without the tools I learned from Sheryl, I would have had a seat at the table, but the board meeting would have ended as it normally ends, good but far less impactful. The board meeting ended with my comments and with the board members saying 'If I could have recorded your comments to play for our 80,000 employees, I would.' THIS WAS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MY CAREER! This level of impact would have never happened without my work with Sheryl."

"Sheryl, you've been an incredible source of inspiration to me and I'm very appreciative of all the work you are doing to empower women to make their voices heard. Here's to a powerful 2021!"

Tina Schackman, CFA
Principal, Senior Retirement Plan Consultant, BFSG, LLC and Co-Chairperson, Women in Pensions Network

"I'm managing principal of a leading financial planning company. How did I get to this point? Well, one of the things that I did just prior to passing my CFP license was work with Sheryl Kline... it was one of the most insightful things I've done in my career. The transformation I experienced was a result of the profound help that Sheryl delivered. She gave me her time, asked the right questions, and provided me with great tools. I am so thankful!"

Kim Rosenberg, CFP
Managing Partner, Rosenbaum Financial

"There are two advantages that I got from executive coaching with Sheryl. The primary advantage has been confidence that I am a high performer. That’s something that I don’t think I knew terribly much about myself. The second thing is just upping my own self-awareness of the skills I already have, and the skills that I need to work on."

Naomi Mercer
SVP for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, American Bankers Association

"Sheryl’s book resonates with me. It will revolutionize and unleash our ability to have an impact when we’ve never needed it more."

Kellie McElhaney
Distinguished Teaching Fellow, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business

"I was struggling with prioritization and organization, balancing the many demands of life and maintaining a focus that isn’t overcome with the many distractions I face on a daily basis. These have been three areas that have challenged me for a long time and I have spent time working to improve in these areas in the past with other coaches and through other programs. In working with Sheryl over the last three months, I can honestly say that I have felt dramatic improvement in each area and I am very grateful to her for her excellent coaching that has helped me become the best version of me!"

Michael Sollazo
Partner and Wealth Management Counsel, Capital Planning Advisors

"I contacted Sheryl Kline when I was feeling lack of focus and sense of achievement with my day to day life. Coincidentally, my daughter was taking her Mental Toughness online course as part of participating in the club volleyball team. While listening to some of the video lectures, it dawned on me that adults could use the skills she was teaching teens. Sheryl has helped me clarify priority for my life, and not just what is important to me, but WHY it is important to me. This has helped focus my energy to what matters most to me, and as a result I feel more in control. I have also regained the sense of calm even when I am overwhelmed with the amount of juggling I deal with personally and professionally. I highly recommend Sheryl and her Mental Toughness program – if you are looking to improve the outlook for your life by feeling productive and purposeful, this program will help you get there."

Sr.-Level Project Manager
Data Security Company, Mountain View, CA

"I invited Sheryl to be a guest panelist for our Female Start-Up Founder Speaker Series. Our topic was 'Mental Toughness for Women in High-Tech Start-Ups'. Sheryl's content was well-thought out, innovative and impactful. Sheryl connected easily with our audience and provided clear actionable take-aways on how to be more Mentally Tough, especially in high pressure situations and also strategies to recover when setbacks occur. Sheryl delivered, and we'll definitely have her back."

Amy Bunszel
Executive Vice President, Architecture, Engineering and Construction Design, Autodesk

"Sheryl led one of our super sessions at Women of the Channel West. Her energy and professionalism combined with timely content, messages and inspiration made her a perfect fit. We can’t wait to have her come back for Women of the Channel East!"

Carolyn Herr
VP Channel Companies
