Praise from Clients
“Shawn seizes the opportunity to challenge us when we need it most. I could not have needed this training more than right now. Even though it humbled me that I have a lot of work to do, the group coaching training also pushed me to discover my ideas, audience and what I am trying to create in this world. In addition, it helped me put together a framework for a group coaching program including providing the confidence to build out the weeks. This training is a great start to launching a group coaching program!”
The information and skills learned through PCLA have transformed me personally and professionally in ways I never anticipated. Understanding who you are as a person and how that impacts your leadership and interaction with others is a huge awakening. It provided me with an ability to assess and react with a brain of curiosity and a heart of love and acceptance. This opens up a whole different level of understanding I didn’t realize I was missing. It has given me the confidence to understand that it is ok not to have all the answers. This revelation has relieved a huge burden off of my shoulders and helped me to empower others to find their own solutions.
I’ve had the pleasure of having Shawn Preuss in my life for the past 10 years. Shawn created a real difference for me both personally and professionally.
We first met in 2010 as I was seeking to provide coaching for myself and my entire management team. I felt stuck. My company grew to 300m in sales, but we could not seem to take the next step. We embarked on an ambitious project. Shawn coached every member of our management team personally including myself. We also engaged in team workshops which helped us shed light on the diverse strengths of the various team members. My own coaching was transformative as I was able to gain awareness and overcome some of the obstacles that were in my way. Our entire team found a new way to form, and then transform. Much due to Shawn’s help, we’ve quadrupled in size in 5 years.
Following, I had the idea to offer coaching to the hundreds of brokers in my firm. Shawn and I embarked on coaching top producer think tanks, which became an instant success. The next step was to build an internal coaching division. Shawn built an accredited program and trained a select group of leaders in a 200-hour program. As a result, we now have a self-sufficient coaching division. Shawn continues to this day to be a resource for us at all levels.
Shawn is deeply caring and highly capable. I wholeheartedly recommend her services.
I’ve appreciated Shawn’s coaching immensely! Her gentle strength and wisdom are exhibited in remarkable ways. She intuitively knows the right question and asks it at the right time, awesome gifts/honed skills! She is also a highly skilled and visionary leader. In a sentence: Shawn is a passionate person committed to coaching others as they work through life transitions and discov-er their best self ~ a true life coach!
Working with Shawn was positively life altering for me. As a naturally high-energy person, my ability to “focus” and “stay-tuned” was becoming unmanageable and getting in the way of my success. Through Life Coaching, I was able to identify my triggers and put a “plan of action” in place that immediately put me right back on track. With Shawn’s help, I learned to embrace my energy, enjoy the journey, and begin to build a very successful career doing what I am most passionate about!
I have been able to transform my career from a solo agent, to building a team through the talents and guidance of Shawn Preuss. Her style of thought-provoking questioning allows for the empowerment of self-realization and personal growth. Shawn has been my personal coach for years and our communication styles are a great match, her ability to listen and get me to open up and dig deeper and deeper have allowed me and my team to continue to grow an even stronger foundation together.
As someone who never believed in a coach that could bring one to the next level, Shawn Preuss has proven me wrong. Shawn’s skillfulness, truthfulness, and perseverance with bringing a team together to work cohesively with many different personalities is something only someone that has encountered Shawn can attest to. She is an amazing, insightful coach and human being.”
It has been only in a few rare moments of my life that I have been gifted the opportunity to work with such an exceptionally talented coach as Shawn.In the course of just a few sessions, I have witnessed her demonstrate uncommon skill, insight and intelligence. She knows right when to “lean in” and how to delicately balance her directness with compassion.
Because of her contributions to my process, I recently experienced a most unexpected and welcome breakthrough that will be invaluable to me for the rest of my life. I look forward to continuing our work together and HIGHLY recommend her services to anyone looking for help with a blind spot, or any other self-limiting belief that might be getting in the way of creating successful outcomes in virtually any domain of life.
I have so much more confidence in the direction my business is headed thanks to Shawn’s coaching. She helped me clarify what I’m really trying to accomplish, thereby avoiding other projects that would have consumed my time and drained my energy. Her coaching is straightforward and assured, which helped me get to the real issue and not be driven by my fears. At the same time, I knew she authentically believed in me. I felt buoyed by her confidence. I am thrilled about where my business is headed, and it wouldn’t be heading there without Shawn’s coaching!
I have been working with Shawn Preuss for almost a year now in one-on-one coaching sessions and as part of a Growth Group. I must say that in that time I have learned so much about myself, my business and how to more effectively manage relationships. I learned to identify what my Values and Beliefs are, how they affect the decisions I make on a daily basis, and then how to modify my decision-making in instances when those values were not serving me.
Connecting with Shawn as a coach and a mentor has had an incredibly positive impact on my life. Shawn is kind, intuitive and patient, yet also direct and persistent. She allowed me to feel completely safe while challenging me to continue to delve deeper to realize my full potential. In her insightful, non-judgmental way, Shawn kept me moving forward and opened my mind to new perspectives and possibilities. She inspired me to stop “doing” so much to achieve other’s “shoulds”, and to just listen to my heart and “be” my best self, both in my personal and professional life. I look forward to continuing to work with her for support and guidance as my own coaching business begins to grow and evolve. I would highly recommend Shawn to anyone serious about achieving a more positive and fulfilling life.
I have been trained and coached by Shawn Preuss for the past 2 years. I have found her to be very effective in her training. She is not intimidating, answers all questions however minute or silly you may think it is, and has a great sense of humor. Shawn is an excellent listener and delivers her comments and training in a way that is easy to comprehend and implement into your life.
There have been multiple parts of this process that have been invaluable for me. Learning more about self-awareness and how to help create self-awareness in others. Learning the value of listening to others on a level that I wasn’t in the past. The concept of managing my own issues and emotions and keeping those separate from my conversations with others… Honestly so many concepts and skills that I now use in my daily life that will improve my relationships with everyone in my life.
Great discussions, great group exercises that push us out of our comfort zone, great group dynamic. It’s a LOT of content and learning… it’s GREAT!
I’m so glad that I have been a part of the Academy. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone, taught me things about myself, and has been a great source of personal growth. Shawn has been a fantastic mentor and I look forward to having her for guidance in the future.
It’s hard to imagine a better way to attain a tremendous amount of knowledge and personally grow at the same time. This course was truly life changing and taught me so much about myself and how to coach others.
