Which of the following ring true for you?

If any of these statements describe your leaders or team members, they will thank you for booking Shawn as your kickoff keynote speaker.

Beyond Resilience is not about surviving. It’s about coming back better than EVER.

Empower your audience to make the shift from just surviving to truly thriving with Shawn’s 4-step “Reboot Roadmap”

While it’s true that so much is out of our control, you always have the power to…

Change Your ENERGY

It’s normal to go into survival mode when disruption hits. You can’t tap into the creativity you need to move forward in survival mode, though. Discover your three tools of creation to change your energy in a moment.

Change Your VISION

After an extended period in survival mode, it’s easy to get tunnel vision from facing one problem after another. Motivation and resilience are found when we create a compelling vision for the future.


If you want to experience something different, you must do something different... even if that means being just 1% better than yesterday. Identify the new beliefs and behaviors that are necessary to bring your vision to life.

Change Your RESULTS

What if you could produce results beyond your wildest imagination? The greatest rewards are reserved for those who keep going. Discover the power of patience, persistence, and trusting the process.

👉🏼 Employees who are “struggling” or “suffering” have over two times the amount of turnover as those who are thriving. (Gallup 2021)

“You were a HUGE hit and people are still talking about the 4 changes we need to focus on. The 1% improvement really resonated... You made a difference, sent the right message at the right time and we are grateful you participated in our meeting.”
