Women Spotlight: Dr. Sharon Melnick, Phd.

Dr. Sharon Melnick, PhD
CEO, Horizon Point, Inc.

Sharon Melnick, PhD and CEO of her firm Horizon Point, Inc. understands the day to day pressures professionals and business owners face. A graduate of Harvard, at which she spent more than 10 years researching her methods on resilience, leadership and success.

Today Dr. Melnick, a highly sought-after speaker, whose presentations are filled with solutions for identifying, addressing the never-ending question of succeeding under stress, rising above self- criticism and the unconscious biases of those around us. As well as how to become resilient as we face challenging situations or environments. Her practical and easily implemented actions empower anyone feeling stressed to take on their challenges in a positive way and step into leadership.


Early this summer I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Melnick and attending her session called “From Chasing Clients to Getting Chased”. Her smooth and easy to follow presentation of the professional & business journey was engaging and captured the attention of every attendee. Each of whose business could not have been more diverse in terms of length of service or type.


Dr. Melnick’s ease is easily the greatest trait of her presentations. Her approach is simple, intentional and results driven. While we have all heard the saying “Fail to Prepare; Prepare to Fail."  Dr. Melnick offers a solution in the form of a toolkit that includes self-check guide to assess actionable items one could implement immediately, short-term and long -term. Within her session one can shift from reactive to proactive. She takes the key tenet of “controlling the controllable” to a new level that those in attendance learn how to be centered, grounded and stand out as leaders under pressure.

While her client list is a who’s who of Fortune 500, she often speaks of what I like to call “stepping into leadership” for everyone in business. She coaches emerging leaders in business and women.

She has taught her effectiveness techniques at the School of Management at Boston College, and at Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations. Her training is from Yale University, UC Berkeley, Harvard Medical School, and the Institute for Management Studies. Her company, Horizon Point, Inc. is an NGLCC certified diverse supplier.
