Turn Your Passionate Nature 

Into Your Greatest Asset

(Rather Than Your Biggest Liability)


Passionate leaders often have high expectations of themselves and the people around them. 

Sometimes their passion for excellence translates into, what is perceived by others, as fiery, forceful and direct behaviors.

When people are ticked off at their leaders

they pay them back by:

  • Turning up, but not turning on
  • Doing sloppy, mistake filled work
  • Missing deadlines
  • Showing up late or leaving early
  • Making life difficult
  •  Standing around gossiping and complaining about their bad boss
  • Working at their own, deliberately slow pace
  • Not caring

If you've got any of that happening in your team, lets get your team members working with, instead of against you ... and keep it that way for the long-term. Discover how to transform from having a short-fuse and constantly being frustrated with others into being a cool and inspiring leader

Want to build a reputation as a passionate leader who inspires others to new levels of performance, creativity and delivery?


feeling misunderstood


building stronger, more productive relationships


failing to deliver projects on time because people have sabotaged you


improving your own and others productivity


having people disliking and resenting you


using your fiery, passionate, direct nature as an asset rather than a burden


having your career curtailed because people don't like you 


standing out as a masterful influencer and leader


feeling stressed and guilty because you lost your cool


creating a more enjoyable work environment

Do you sometimes put your head in your hands and wonder ...

Why did I do that?

Why did I say that?

How can I stuff those words back in my mouth?

Our passionate nature can be ... 

very inspiring

and it can tip us into a vat of boiling water - scalding ourselves and everyone around us.

What is your passionate nature costing you?

Many years ago, one of the teams I led even had a persona for me ... they called it "Shitty Shelley" and when Shitty Shelley turned up nobody won.
Not me, not them, not the business.
I realised my inability to handle my passionate nature and fiery temper, was costing me dearly. Not just in finances and career opportunities, but in burned relationships and how I felt on a daily basis.

And here's the thing. I don't know about you, but I love my big strong, personality.

My passion and my let's make stuff happen attitude toward life.

I'll never walk way from that.

I'm guessing you probably feel that way too.

So, what if there was a way to hack out the parts of you that aren't serving you or anyone else - and keep all the good stuff?

Finally discover how to use your passionate personality to positively influence and sway people to go where you are leading.

30-Day Online

Feeling Fiery, Thinking Cool Challenge

Here's just the tip of the iceberg of what you can expect from this amazing new 30 Day Challenge:


What every leader needs to know about getting and keeping people onside.


The real secret for how to use your fiery, passionate, direct nature as an asset rather than a burden


See how you can easily build stronger more productive relationships (so you don't have to deal with feeling misunderstood)


How every leader can quickly build a reputation out as a masterful influencer and leader... so you can completely avoid having people disliking and resenting you


Effortlessly improve income and career potential (so you can breeze right by failing to deliver projects on time because people have sabotaged you)


Short and long-term solutions for how you can build stronger, more collaborative work relationships


Rapidly reduce stress and pressure


 Stop having the brakes put on your career because people don't like you a thing of the past


Quickly improve your own and others productivity (so you create a more enjoyable work environment)


And, as a special bonus, you'll also discover how to set yourself up so that your emotions don't hijack your performance!

... and much, MUCH More!

This is a Must Attend if ... 

You feel misunderstood

If you're like most people you probably have a self-image that you're a good person. The challenge is that if you're leaving behind a trail of bruised and broken people it is costing you dearly. People pay you back. Not only that you lose sleep worrying about the latest mess you've created.

You have uncontrolled outbursts or rash split-second reactions

Pressure is inevitable. How you react will either make you a hero or zero. Rash outbursts don't make people inspiring! Rather they make them look foolish and feel frustrated. 

You often feel stressed or guilty or ashamed after you've lost your cool

and everything you've tried doesn't seem to work. You may be the smartest person in the room, but if you don't handle pressure, don’t handle resistance, don't handle frustrating circumstances correctly, if you lose control of your emotions then you will ultimately fail.

You've been trying for months to 

get your people aligned, but you haven't made any serious traction. You're stressed, they are under-performing and you don't know what to do next to get them to deliver the results your company and you need

You are ready to take your career

to a whole new level. To be the leader that others want to role-model. To be the leader who gets faster promotions, higher salaries, more meaningful and rewarding work ... with less stress

Some of the companies I've worked with

Limited to 20 participants - so be quick.

Exponential Growth ...

I'm being challenged to re-shape my thinking, direction, and mindset. It has been unsettling at times: "Can I do this?" But most importantly, it has been exciting and inspiring.

My personal and professional growth over the past 8 weeks has been exponential.
Thank you for inspiring me to want more, challenging me to think differently, and for being my new benchmark.

Truly shaped leadership skills

When I think back on the time we worked together, I always realize how much of an influence you had on my career.  I have spread the learnings from you throughout the Middle East now :). We have over 6,000 employees, so your influence has been far-reaching. You truly have shaped my leadership skills.

How does the 30-Day Challenge Work?

Self-paced Learning Modules

Every couple of days modules are released. Each module will contain a mixture of video, written, self-assessment, reflection worksheets and suggested actions. Most days you'll be done in less than 30 minutes - then you'll get out and apply what you've learned back at work

Weekly Transformation Group Coaching Masterclass

Every week you'll join Shelley online in the Transformation Group Coaching MasterClass. You'll get strategies and tips to fine-tune the learning and action-taking from the modules released during the week.

Daily Accountability

Before you can move on to the next lesson, you will submit your reflection activity to Shelley (it's an easy process, and you'll end up with a remarkable resource that you can use for years to come).

This is not a learn only program. This challenge is deliberately designed to help you transform.

Facebook Members Only Accountability Group

Because this program is about transformation, you'll be encouraged to post in the Facebook group your plans for the upcoming week, your successes and 'learned-froms' from the  past day or two.

Learn at Your Own Pace

You only have access to the weekly Group Coaching Masterclasses during the actual challenge . 

However, you do have lifetime access to all the course materials inside the members portal. Which will include a replay of the weekly live Transformation Masterclass.

So you can go through the materials as they're released, or you can slow things down and work to your own pace.

So if you're crazy busy at work, dealing with lots of big life events, then don't worry about falling behind. 

You can review and revisit the training materials and resources any time. 

Remember, you are make a transformation for your lifetime, not for only 30 days!

Here's what you'll cover


Module 1:  Are You Ready For This?

You'll do a series of self-assessment activities to gauge your motivation for change and readiness to take action. If your scores aren't where I think they need to be, you and I will jump on a call to discuss your results. 

If after that call I don't think the timing is right, I'll refund your money, or you'll take some action steps to get you ready for the next challenge.

  • where you MUST take massive and rapid action (to avoid career derailing  train-wrecks)
  • where you COULD tweak for better results
  • where you SHOULD keep doing what you've always been doing


Module 2: Emotional Charisma

The emotional intelligence of a leader impacts the entire team. In this module we'll take a look at the impact you are having.

You are creating your legacy every single day.

How do you want to be remembered? 

As an exploding volcano?

As a doormat people can wipe their feet on?

Or as a powerful, impactful influencer and leader?


Module 3: Wearing A Cloak Of A Different Color

Everything in this world begins with a vision. So in this module we are going to examine your results from the previous module and then we are going to re-write and begin to re-wire your future.

For real transformation to happen you must change your identity and your focus and in this module we will set the foundation for this radically different, more powerfully constructive and influential version of you to begin to show up in your world


Module 4: Train The Puppy

To train a puppy you have to catch it in the act of peeing.

So in this module we are going to fine-tune your self-awareness so that you become aware where your emotions are about to hijack your thinking.

You'll have the tools you need to engage - rapidly - your smart mind so that you remain an effective influencer - even in a pressure situation.


Module 5: Pre-Paving and Reflection

No matter what sort of conversation or meeting you are going to step in to, the tools in this module enable you to rapidly and easily plan for a great outcome.

You'll discover just how easy it is to set yourself and others up for success, with just a few small questions to ask and answer yourself before you step into a room.

And what separates all 'rockstar' performers from others is their fine-tuned capability to reflect on their performance. With 3 simple questions you'll rapidly review and plan your next interaction.


Module 6: Victory Over Myself

Using the tools you gained in Module 5, whenever you catch yourself in the act of peeing, you'll now have a strategy that you'll discover in this module that will enable you to regulate your fiery nature.

You'll see how easy it is to stop yourself mid-stream and begin to think, act and be the powerful, collaborative, constructive, assured leader and influencer you decided to be in Module 3.


Module 7: Reading The Room

You can be the type of leader that consistently gets the best out of people, or you can be the type of leader that consistently gets the worst!

During this module we'll look at how you can take the temperature of a room - whether it is filled with people or you're working one-on-one.

You'll become fine-tuned at being able to flex your style so that the other people in the room recognize that you have heard and understood them. Once they get that feeling they'll be far more willing to work with you to move forward in a positive direction.


Module 8: Being A Positive Influencer

Once you've read the room, now you take steps to react and influence others in a constructive way.

You'll work toward ensuring that you achieve your goals and desires (and hopefully the outcomes of the person/(s) you are interacting with)


Module 9: You've Got This

Let's tie a bow around all you've discovered in the program. We'll celebrate the successes you've had throughout the challenge.

We'll explore the shifting dynamics in your relationships with others, as you've been putting into practice all the new tools you've discovered throughout the challenge.

We'll pre-pave your future and cement in your new identify as a powerful influencer and leader.


Here are just three of the bonuses that are waiting for you

behind the gated doors in our Course Portal

Bonus 1
Members Only
Facebook Group

The Facebook Group is where you will share your successes, challenges and hopes.

One of the challenges of transformation is that others hold on to the old picture of you.

My plan is that our group becomes the place where you can explore and discover together what is working or not working for you and why


Bonus 2
Critical Reflection

For the next 12 months, each month you will receive a self-assessment reflection activity that you can use to assess your ongoing application of the skills that you've discovered throughout the challenge.

This challenge has been designed to have lasting impact, so this monthly check-in will ensure that you are embedding your new habits for the rest of your life. 

Bonus 3
My Career, My Choice

You'll also be given free access to one of the foundational trainings in the Make A Dent Leadership stable.

My Career, My Choice helps you to examine your life and career and gives you the blueprint to design (or redesign) your career, so that you become a 'rockstar' in your world.
