About the Author

Sherry Welsh started out with a degree in Engineering. Although she didn't quite know what to do with it, it provided her with the technical background to begin a twenty-five year career in manufacturing. The experience she gained in her first job in Southampton, PA, set her on a twenty-year career path with Robert Bosch, GmbH. She moved through plants, corporate offices in Germany and the U.S. and ultimately landed in Michigan, where she has lived for the past twenty years. When she left Bosch, she was one of the few women who were in the executive ranks. She was lured away from Bosch to another automotive supplier to be the head of the Global Sales organization responsible for three billion in Sales. Although the future seemed bright there, the great recession of 2008 came along and knocked her out of the game... temporarily. As a single mom, unemployed in Detroit, Michigan, in one of the greatest recessions of all time, the future seemed bleak. It was during this time that Sherry was able to slow down, set up a consulting practice, and use the skills she had developed over the years as a leader. In that year of consultant work, Sherry discovered her love for coaching and mentoring. Another company came along, a British Cosmetic packaging company that invited her on a two-year stint as a Global Sales leader. Sherry worked with colleagues around the world again and loved the team she was developing and leading in Paris, Amsterdam, Brazil, New York and Chicago-to name a few locations. Working with customers like Chanel, Christian Dior, and LOreal was a dream! But due to the nature of the work, every week she was on an airplane, at a different hotel, in a different city. Despite her love for travel, this way of life as a single mom was exhausting. That's when the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) popped up on her radar! It offered exactly what Sherry loved most about working with the multicultural teams she had worked with around the world: inspiring and coaching them to be their best! Now an independent, professional coach, Sherry works with clients around the world to help them discover and bring their innate leadership abilities into all aspects of their life. She continues to travel and co-parent her incredible son; only now she does so with more humor, a greater sense of ease, and a mind open to a world of possibilities.

"Sherry is a great friend and coach who has positively impacted all facets of my life. The tools, approach and mindset she employs focus on abundance versus lack which turns traditional thought inside out by opening our hearts and minds to possibilities we haven't imagined or have only dreamt about. Through my work with Sherry, I have uncovered and nurtured a more authentic self which brings great peace, strength and happiness. I am thrilled that she has shared the knowledge and experiences in this book for others to learn and apply to bring more happiness to their lives and to those around them." Cynthia Hiskes CHRO, Cars.com, Wife and Mother of 3 (4 if you count the dog) "I don't know what I like more: the author of this great book or the words on these pages. I only wish Slowing Down's sub-title included men - because I took away so much. Sherry teaches and inspires us to get off life's treadmill and start dancing with the universe!" Tommy Spaulding, CEO, Author, Speaker, Husband, Father of 3 www.tommyspaulding.com New York Times bestselling author of The Heart-Led Leader and It's Not Just Who You Know "Sherry Welsh has uncovered the secret of slowing down to accelerate your career success ...an entertaining and powerful book worth reading more than once!" Steve Chandler Author of Time Warrior Husband, Father of 4 "A natural teacher with a big heart and a passion for helping others, Sherry Welsh has written a book that cuts to the heart of the matter behind female leaders' struggle to thrive: the failure to question their victim thinking and take ownership of their lives. With her no-nonsense approach, Sherry masterfully weaves together a rich tapestry of real stories, universal truths and powerful strategies to show us how to shift into slowed down thinking, being and leading to create our most inspired, fulfilling, joy-filled lives!" Melissa Ford Entrepreneur, Wife, Mother of 2
