Hi, I’m Shawn Clark, business owner, leadership coach, team building facilitator, father, and proud owner of a highly active “Monkey Mind.”

But the endless inner-chatter made it hard to focus on priorities – and even harder to relax. It infected my team and my family, causing stress, confusion, and resignation.

In the last 25 years, I have worked with over 3,000 teams and their leaders. I have seen firsthand the impact of leaders who inspire others positively versus manipulate people with negativity. You and your team can be highly productive and impactful, all while enjoying the journey. This guide will give you tips for doing just that.
