About Shift Coaching

Shift Coaching was born over 20 years ago with a belief that coaching helps build strong culture and create business results. Since then the company has grown and we have coached over a thousand leaders to help them grow and build winning teams.

We provide you and your team the tools, feedback, and processes to transform your organization’s culture. Our job is to help you, your team, and your organization move through the rapidly changing world by building a coaching culture that lasts….

Our Approach: 1 Team | 1 Methodology

Effective business coaching requires more than coaches. Shift Coaching is 100% dedicated to corporate coaching, and we take the approach to delivering exceptional results for our clients very seriously.

One of the foundational areas that sets Shift apart is our approach, “1 Team, 1 Methodology.”

1 Team | Shift Coaches

Shift Coaching is made up of a team of unique coaches. Some of Shift’s Coaches are former executives with a great deal of expertise and hands on experience. Some are millennials who understand the world’s evolving complexity since they have grown up in it. All of our coaches are certified and well versed in the Shift Coaching Model, approach and tools. This ensures your leaders and teams are aligned and speaking the same language

1 Methodology | Develop Leaders, Teams, and Cultures

Shift Coaching applies a proven, step-by-step approach to developing leaders, teams and cultures. The theoretical framework for the Shift Coaching Model is based on a wide range of philosophical, psychological, and leadership underpinnings. We rely on evidence-based, research-informed, empirical data to guide the construct of our approach to learning, coaching and assessment. Our Fellows status at the Institute of Coaching at Harvard University and MG100 membership provides us with access to the best minds in the world of coaching and fresh research, so we are always learning and bringing new content to our clients in a format that works in their business environments.

The first step is to choose a coaching team that gets you and your business. Shift Coaching takes you and your team from where you are to where you want to be.
