Like you, leadership expert and business coach Shawn Meredith has seen the word leadership defined numerous ways over the years. Is it charisma and positive thinking? Are there born leaders or can they be made? Decisiveness? Is it all about the situation? Luck? Is it meant only for the chosen few who rise to the top? Or, is there a different story?
With over a decades of executive coaching, training, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches management experience, his view is radically different. Shawn appreciates, and shares with his clients, that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure, or position. Additionally, Shawn understands that people are not robots. Creative solutions and good plans alone will not empower a team to succeed. Effective leadership is understanding the plan as well as the people and is for everyone, everyday. It's how we should live our life and it is how you can live yours.
Shawn, is well regarded by his clients for his ability to clearly understand complex relationship systems, to adeptly work with his coaches to successfully navigate those systems, and for his hands-on coaching method that brings out the best in both the individual and the team at large. His style is described as a practical, objectively insightful fusion of real-life stories and advanced theory that connects with his audience at an intimate, intense and uniquely individual level.

This is done by unlocking the fundamental processes that drive professional relationships.
