For more than 15 years, Shawn Rhodes, president of Shoshin Consulting, studied how the highest-performing organizations in more than two dozen countries implemented their plans. Today, he applies what he learned and accelerates results of organizations like Deloitte, ConAgra, Serta-Sealy among scores of others.

Our work at Shoshin Consulting is highly collaborative, involving every level of our client’s organizations. From the executive suite down to employees in the field, we’re dedicated to developing top-down and bottom-up results in our client’s companies. Engagements usually last between three and six months, implementing specific objectives that contribute to the ROI of our client’s organizations.

The foundation of what we create 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, we rely on the existing wisdom of your people to build the fastest path to achieving your objectives.

Our Mission: To help organizations harness change and drive results. We do that through helping our clients-


Execution is vital for your organization’s success, but how vital? It’s a fact – according to the Harvard Business Journal, you’re likely only getting 63% of the profitability you could in your business. Why? There’s a gap between your strategy and the goals your employees are achieving. Our methods have shown a cost reduction of 24% in improved execution.


Each of the large companies that failed in the last decades believed last year’s way of doing business was enough to ensure their survival. Time, the economy and their competitors proved them wrong. An organization that can’t rapidly respond to changes, or pivot, is destined to be overtaken by those that can. Instead of scrambling to put out fires and deal with unexpected change, let us show you how our clients have received a 37% reduction from their former project completion times.


Taking the time to do this means the difference between repeating the same mistakes/settling for mediocre success or experiencing drastic improvement. More importantly, it means having a process that is consistently used across all departments and shared across your organization – a process that ensures you rocket past competitors who never learn from their wins or losses.

We do that through building process and performance improvement programs, customized workshops and the best keynote programs in the world.

Why Most Strategy Sucks

I hate to be blunt, but chances are the strategy your company is using isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. It’s not driving results. It’s likely not pulling you ahead of your competition.
