Shannon is absolutely a pleasure to work with. From the moment we jumped on a phone call to discuss the needs of my team to the last hour of a two day training. She continued to listen and only provide the help we needed. She’s very knowledgeable and has strong dedication to helping your company. We will use her again and again for future team building and learning.

Shannon is one of the most charming, intelligent, intuitive, and spirited people I know. I’m delighted to have worked with her and to collaborate with her on multiple projects. During my time at Epic Games, Shannon acted as a partner to me in the pursuit of growing and cultivating leadership and leaders there. She facilitated numerous training events, developed in house training for our leads, and provided world-class executive coaching for many people. While pursuing my path in coaching, Shannon was a guiding force in supporting my journey, sharing best practices, nurturing my learning, and enabling me opportunities to grow in my way. Shannon is one in a million; she applies humor as a means to support education, and in a way that feels comfortable and warm. She quickly builds trust and is not afraid to say what needs to be said if in the interest of someone’s highest and best. I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked with her!

We were referred to Engaged Leadership by someone from Lucasfilm. Shannon McGee was the primary consultant on our project and I’m so glad she was. Our project involved a multinational internal client survey for the in-house IP group of a company that owns an iconic , Top 100 brand. Shannon worked very fluidly with me (the MD) to understand our company, our group and to design a survey that got at the crux issues. She then executed it efficiently and professionally. In fact, her ability to interview senior executives in an effective and approachable manner made for more useable results in those grey areas. She then helped me and my management team take the well-sifted results to moderate internal sessions that drove important management and group changes. She also spent time with me on some related coaching ideas which was invaluable. Our results were on budget, on time and her work was outstanding. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat and would use her again.
