10 Things I learned

from working with my Peak Performers

  1. They have the courage to say “I don’t know” and ask for Help.
  2. They value growth and learning over comfort.
  3. They are part of a supportive peer group
  4. They are not afraid to be vulnerable and honest.
  5. They are always learning and asking BIG questions.
  1. They move into action quickly.
  2. They acknowledge their blindspots.
  3. They bet on themselves and they invest in themselves, their team, and their future
  4. They build people up and not tear them down.
  5. They take their business seriously, but not themselves. They love having fun.

In my previous life as a keynote speaker and corporate consultant I would meet amazing business leaders across North America.

After delivering a keynote or working with their teams, I would often get invited to dinner.

This is when I would hear the real story.

I would hear how incredibly stressed they were, how they were expected to be on 24/7, how the demands of the job just kept getting bigger, not to mention the cost of this on their health, family and relationships.

But you know the worst part?

They would say something to the effect of “well, that’s the cost of being a business leader these days”And they bought into this story.

There is another way.

And it starts with making a courageous decision to bet on yourself and your future.

But let me warn you….coaching is NOT for everyone.

You must be coachable and open to creating a bigger future for yourself.

It starts with making a serious commitment to create lasting change, being accountable to yourself and everyone around you, and not hiding behind excuses.

It’s not for the faint of heart, and I only work with those serious about change.

Are you ready to commit to making a lasting change?

Shawn’s coaching roster is currently full. If you are interested in joining the wait list, please send Camille an email at and briefly describe:

  • Your current situation and where you would like to be.
  • Your biggest challenges.
  • Why you are interested in coaching.

What Others Say About Shawn


“Before Shawn I thought I could do it all. I realized how unproductive I was and allowed interruptions. I have since recognized the importance of closing my door and hiring staff that are way better than me. We have exploded because of Shawn.”

- Jillian Burns
Co-Owner of Burns Landscaping & Snow Management

“Before working with Shawn I didn’t have anyone to keep me focused and accountable on the growth of the business. I am much more focused now on working on the business, and not caught up in the day to day. He is genuine, diligent and has a great strategic mindset, working with Shawn has been game changing.”

– Kevin Cassidy
Founder & President of Cassidy Paving Haverhill, MA

Shawn is a rare gem in the business world. He cares deeply about others and is absolutely committed to challenging his clients to be the best version of themselves. He lives and breathes coaching and is dedicated to excellence. It's such a pleasure to work with Shawn and his network of talented genuine business stars. He calls it as he sees it and his frankness has helped me grow significantly!

- Mark Bloodworth
Behavioural Change Coach


“For several years the highlight of our annual conference has been Shawn Shepheard. The audience is laughing one moment, dabbing at a tear the next and all the while being challenged and inspired. He delights all ages and backgrounds and his message is universal. At a recent conference, an octogenarian said, “Shawn teaches me something new about life each time and I am so energized now!!!” And THAT is why we have him back each year.

– Casey Truffo
Be A Wealthy Therapist Orange County, California

“As the host of my signature event, Book Breakthrough New York City, Shawn was nothing short of amazing! His style is engaging, entertaining and inspiring – all of which made both our in-room attendees and simulcast audience feel special and right at home. If remarkable is the word you want people to use in describing your event, look no further than Shawn Shepheard.”

– Elizabeth Marshal
Co-founder of Book Breakthrough NYC

Shawn and I have worked on and on for more than a decade. And through that decade, I opened two restaurants in New York City, given two stars by The NY Times, featured in an international documentary, wrote a critically acclaimed best-selling cookbook, left a relationship that was not working, and now I’m well on my way to becoming POTUS! Well, that last part isn’t in my sights but knowing Shawn, if it were, he’d help me get there.

- Nicole Ponseca
Founder – Maharlika Filipino Moderno NYC As seen on The Chew, New York Times, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York


Across the veritable sea of those in the coaching, consulting, or leadership development realm- it is my sincerest belief that Malcolm Gladwell wrote 'Outliers' because of Shawn Shepheard. Shawn reminds me of the concept of "possible" that I allowed myself to lose sight of over time, and under the easy lull and short-term promises of keeping the status quo. Shawn reminds me again and again of all the reasons why the status quo is the easiest trap to fall into. He retaught me that it is my responsibility to do the work that makes me feel alive. He reminds me of the unmatched importance of taking Immediate Action. Like a Canadian Mary Poppins, Shawn Shepheard came into my life with his brilliant energy and his medicine bag of critical questions and accountability and he completely shifted the entire landscape and trajectory of my path. He got me to polish my own mirror in ways that hurt (the good kind), even as I couldn't stop finding reasons to thank him. Simply put, Shawn Sheppheard is a GIFT. His only crime? Easily, it would be in knowing that he is unduplicatable. Any attempts to try and clone him would be spotted right away. One particularly cruel version of professional heartbreak is learning that Shawn is not taking on any new clients. And yet you ABSOLUTELY are willing to wait as long as it takes to work with him anyway. Because he really is that remarkable. But also because there is but one Shawn Shepheard.
