The Unexpected Story – Getting Unstuck on the Way to Extraordinary

You have a dream, a desire, something extraordinary you want to create. It may be a new business, new product, or a new way of living.  But you’re not gaining traction making that dream come true—and the reason why is probably not what you think.

The key to successfully creating what you desire is found in being able to clearly identify the four stories operating in your life: The Challenge Story, The Dream Story, The Yeah, but… Story and ending with the Unexpected Story.  However, unless you are committed to uncovering the origins of those “Yeah, but’s,” that’s where your story will end.

Shannon shows audiences how to do the work necessary to move past the Yeah, but… Story once and for all so they can finally get to the extraordinary adventure that is The Unexpected Story, the dream that’s so big it doesn’t seem possible, until it is.

This arresting, unusual, visually stunning presentation leaves audiences inspired and educated on how to clear the way for their own Unexpected Story to come true.

Untangle Your Money Story – How to Take Back Your Power and Earn What You’re Worth!

You give yourself away. You discount your services. You don’t ask for the raise. You sabotage yourself with issues related to money and self-worth. NO MORE.

In this engaging talk, Shannon Presson describes how we get all tangled up around our money issues, pushing money away with our beliefs and habits.

If you are ready to break through to your next income level, if you are tired of watching others soar ahead with their success and income, while you feel stuck in the same old place, this talk will uplift, inspire and point you in the direction of your own success and own worth. 

Leadership Lessons from the Herd – What horses can teach us about leadership, presence and power

Strong leadership skills are crucial to the success of any organization.  But it’s not only what you say but how you “show up” that makes the difference between being effective or ineffective.   With horses, it’s not the biggest horse that leads.  Or the pushiest.  Horses are social creatures whose survival depends on trust, communication and cooperation within the herd – all qualities that can mean the difference between motivating your team or shutting them down.

Learn what horses can teach us about how to truly “show up” as leaders and how to maximize our effectiveness for engagement and collaboration
