About Shannyn Merlo, Founder of Inspired Outcomes
Throughout my life it has been the people in my corner supporting me that has made the difference. Key people have stood out when I was challenged or confused. They were also there when I lost my purpose or when I was stretching for a big goal. I know that without them I wouldn’t be the person I am now, or in fact the person I’m destined to become.
The impact these people have had on my life is what drew me to become a coach and to found Inspired Outcomes. I have experienced first-hand how important it is to surround yourself with a quality team. A team that helps define what is actually important, and to help navigate the journey. I know I wouldn’t have had the experiences that I value so much had I not had my team. I also know that I wouldn’t be in this privileged position of helping others to do the same without them.
Inspired Outcomes is a business built on the desire to have impact. We focus on helping business owners to stop being stuck in the busy and actually go home happy. We focus on the outcome you want to achieve and help you get there.
I draw on 20 years of experiences from diverse roles in marketing, project and operations management in a variety of industries. These include NGOs, sport, technology, education and financial services. It is this background that brings strategic and creative problem solving to my clients. As a human behavioral specialist and intuitive leader I bring new and innovative ways of thinking. I bring authenticity, flexibility and a deep passion for creating positive change for clients.
I enjoyed 6 life-coaching sessions with Shannyn Merlo during which I learned how to identify the areas I need to work on, how to communicate with my partner better and how to think about defining moments in your life and how to become a better and happier person. Any person interested in self-improvement and self-development will certainly find value in such sessions. Thank you, Shannyn!
Shannyn is an accomplished, engaging coach, very clear on her role as ‘facilitator’: facilitating greater self-understanding and ultimately change and growth, through the use of a range of activities which always place the coachee at the centre of the process. Shannyn is extremely supportive, committed and reliable. When she says she will follow a session with an email containing notes from your discussions, she does it straight away. If she says she’s going to check in with you about your ‘homework’ or goal, she does it. And in all her interactions with you, Shannyn is incredibly gracious, respectful and clear in her communication. Nothing is left unattended, from letting you know exactly what to expect from life coaching, to checking in to see if you need anything further at the end of each session to comfortably and safely end the interaction.
Shannyn has the skill of seeing beyond words and allows clients to understand things from another point of view. When one is in the path of being an entrepreneur – which it was my case – one often deals with his deepest fears and must face it to make things happen. On the six sessions that we worked together, Shannyn helped to understand the importance of body and mind. I went from being anxious about my future to feel settle and secure about my decisions. I started meditating, created an image of my future self and learned how to embrace uncertainty – this is a difficult one – We worked together to generate a structure of my goals and developed a way to do things in a different way. I really recommend Shannyn as a coach whether it is for those who are in an exciting time but they don’t know where to start or those who are completely lost and need to see future with more clarity.
