Barbara Sher

Barbara Sher (14 August 1935 – 10 May 2020) was a speaker, career/lifestyle coach, and author. Her books sold millions of copies and were translated into many languages. She appeared on ''Oprah'', ''The Today Show'', ''60 Minutes'', CNN, and ''Good Morning America'' and her public television specials aired regularly in the United States. Sher lectured at universities, Fortune 100 companies and professional conferences all over the world.

In 1976 she launched Success Teams. Trained leaders recruit groups of about 5 or 6 people and lead them through her 8-week workshop for "How to get what you really want, even if you have no goals, no character, and you're often in a lousy mood." Members identify and pursue their wishes in a framework of mutual encouragement, support, ideas for overcoming obstacles, introductions to helpful contacts, and accountability for continued effort.

Sher's book ''Refuse to Choose'' (Rodale 2006) is a step-by-step program designed for "scanners", people with many interests who are unable to decide on a single direction for their lives. Provided by Wikipedia
