Program Overview


Working with leaders around the world, we see organizations typically have three scenarios:

  1. Organizations that have good meetings but want them to be great meetings
  2. Organizations that need to rethink how they can be more effective in meetings

“Easy-to-understand professional training with great practices. Very engaging. Great training topics and materials. Most important, fun!”

“Shawn’s style of communicating with his audience is motivating and inspiring. His knowledge and the way he connects with everyone is captivating and enjoyable. Looking forward to reading his books and different work he is involved in.”

“This experience has been eye opening to say the least. It has made me critically think about myself and those around me. Regardless of your role or experience, there is always something more to learn and improve on. No one is too good for this.”

“Not only is it a great refresher for past skills, but also an incredible program for relating to other managers and our fellow employees and team members.”

“I would recommend the training to a friend because Shawn’s approach isn’t just to tell you what you should do, how you should act, or how to feel. He challenges your own thought process, and while he assists you through it, his program allows you to think internally and come up with solutions – whether in work or in your personal life. I would definitely recommend his training to a friend.”

“He makes his classes very interesting, and I love the fact that he connects it to real-life experiences that are very relatable.”

I have taken this call so seriously and have already started executing many of the tools/strategies from all the classes. I loved how interactive this class was. I loved meeting staff I’ve never been introduced to and thought it could help interdepartmental. Super appreciative to have been a part of this leadership class!”

“Shawn was incredibly engaging, caring, and knowledgeable. His commitment to making people better people is obvious in everything he does, and he has inspired myself and my staff to apply his teachings. Truly life changing.”
