free barrier for team members with R
OP autoattacks with passive ( xD )
strong against full AD/ AP
hard to lane about sustain and hearr***e enemys
not the strongest vs. Hybrids like Jax
Teamfighter, cant win the most 1 vs. 1 in endgame
Use your E (Taunt) to engage, or do your Q first and then Dash to him with E. You will have enough energy to activate your W (Shield). The shield isnt strong in early but it's blogs some autoattacks and the enemy minions Damage. If you can't fight wait for the jungler. Shen works really well with Lee Sin.
Late Game or in Teamfights, it isn't easy to play the right way. You can't burst the AD Carry and you don't deal Olaf-Damage. You can't engage with Shen in Teamfights well so wait for someone like Nautilus or Leona. Then go in and try to Taunt their AD Carry. He can't deal Tons of Damage to your Bruisers and the Rest who engage and you can do some Damage to him.
The Ulti is very strong, but without AP then shield is bursted down fast if the Teammate fight solo against 5 (Jax for example). Try to do it on someone who is squishy and isn't focused but lowlife. So he can go in and suddenly theres the Shen and Taunts the whole enemy Team. Then your AD Carry and the Assassine can burst down their Carrys.
Try out for you way to play :D
