With the ShockStop there is no need to change your approach to riding. The suspension is “pre-loaded”, meaning that it will not start to move until a certain amount of weight has been applied, so there isn’t a “squishy” feel as you start to apply weight to the stem. Because of this and the inherent torsional rigidity of the pivot design, the feel when climbing or sprinting is going to be nearly the same as with a rigid stem.
