Shawn Rhodes is one of the few people in the world who has studied team performance in the most dangerous and challenging environments on the planet. As a war correspondent embedded with US Marines, he studied organizational performance in more than two dozen countries. He applies what he learned for clients such as Deloitte, ConAgra, Serta Sealy and other leading organizations.
He is a professional member of the National Speaker’s Association and typically presents dozens of times a year to audiences around the globe. He has been a guest lecturer at the University of South Florida, Entrepreneur’s Organization and Vistage. He was named one of the top 20 speakers in the world in 2014 by Toastmaster’s International.
Shawn holds two degrees from Western Carolina University and is one of the few journalists to be featured in the history of military writers, “First To Go, Last To Know.”
His work has been featured in TIME, CNN, NBC, INC and hundreds of media outlets around the globe. His new book is Pivot Point: Turn On A Dime Without Sacrificing Results. Shawn has consulted organizations ranging from Fortune 100 and 500 companies to tech start-ups and mom-and-pop companies.
He is frequently interviewed and quoted for his expertise in improving organizational performance, and INC. has said of Shawn, “He works with companies to implement the same skill set that Marines use on the battlefield.”
The foundation of what Shawn creates with clients was born on battlefields around the world – where achieving a mission meant the difference between life and death. Not achieving your business goals can mean the life and death of your organization. Instead of implementing complicated software or striving for a Six-Sigma standard deviation, Shawn relies on the existing wisdom of your people to build the fastest path to achieving your objectives.
