I'm Barbara Shannon
I help purpose-positive CEOs lead from their values, focus on what matters, and achieve results bigger than their dreams.
Barbara is my sanity source. She's a wealth of business knowledge, and my guide in becoming the leader I want to be.
CEO Miyoko's Creamery
Barbara is an exceptional business partner and an outstanding thought leader, coach, facilitator and platform presenter.
For ten years we could not agree. Two days with Barbara and we agreed on our approach. And she has a great sense of humor!
