Program Overview


Through 30+ years of leadership development, this is what we found to be the top three challenges for today’s leaders:

  1. Leaders with no formal leadership training, yet are expected to lead
  2. Managers and supervisors who have potential to become great leaders lack access to the training that will help them “win at work”
  3. Team members are promoted to a leadership role without adequate leadership training catered to the organization’s culture and environment

This training will provide leaders with the tools and techniques to help them become skilled at being a more impactful, effective leader.

“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.”

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!”
