For more than a decade, workplace culture expert, Shannon McKain, has motivated audiences to make changes for the better in their professional and personal lives. A gifted speaker, McKain’s authenticity and her ability to intimately connect with an auditorium filled with employees and executives aren’t performance art — she’s the real deal.
Before traveling the country to influence others, McKain was in her audience’s shoes, working in the corporate world where she saw, and even experienced herself, how The Great Divide impacted growth and success among her peers.
Calling on that past, she openly shares personal stories and her own encounters with culture issues in ways that not only build trust and empathy with her audience, they result in dramatic mindset shifts that help drive dynamic transformations within an organization.
Those fortunate enough to experience a Shannon McKain presentation gain a wealth of skills to respect individual differences and use them to build a stronger company culture that promotes retention, fulfillment and shared success goals. This is what it takes to bridge The Great Divide. This is her mission.
For everyone who’s been told or ever felt that their aspiration was just a pipe dream, Shannon delivers the how-to of “getting there.” From personal hardships, life lessons and losing her mother to cancer, Shannon has developed Six Signs of Positivity to help folks of all ages overcome self-doubt, toxic people and adversity, with the goal of creating-not just dreaming about-the life they desire.
