HOW IS THE PROGRAM STRUCTURED?

This hybrid course starts off with an immersive retreat with an intensive self-leadership training, personal reflection in nature, mindful interludes, and in-depth sparring sessions with experienced leadership coaches. After that, mastermind groups are built and you launch off in a self-learning routine for 7 consecutive weeks – working on the 5 dimensions of the SHIFT® Framework every single day. In this period we also meet twice for online peer coaching sessions moderated by our coaches. In the end of this journey you will reflect on your attitude change in an intensive remote event with all your coaches and peers.

LEARNING JOURNEY IN DETAIL

Welcome to the SHIFT® path! A hybrid self-leadership course, nothing you have seen before. Truth is that self-help books won’t do the job, personal coaching is not for everyone, and dog-eat-dog career acceleration or ego-boosting human potentiality chaka are definitely not what we need to thrive in Century 21. So how can you find your purpose then?

By learning to become your own best coach. By learning to feed your own mind constantly. By understanding that goals are useless without working on the desired attitude. By learning to lead yourself in order to lead others. This program will show you how to develop a new attitude towards learning. It will question convictions about success and adapt a new state-of-mind to navigate change and create free space for you to get better over time.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?

Today’s leaders can be divided in two categories: Those who think the world around them must change. And those who understand that they have to change themselves. This program is designed for the latter. We believe that transformation is not about implementing new technologies but primarily about an open attitude towards change. In a world changing so rapidly, finding purpose is the essential foundation for every transformative leader. We are deeply convinced that people must acquire new attitudes to come up with new solutions to the unexpected problems that will undoubtedly determine our future way of doing business.

Executives from established SMBs wanting to drive the transformation of their organizations to make them 21st century proof

Business leaders from large corporations looking for new ways to change their organizations

Future-forward entrepreneurs and game-changers who look for a diverse network of like-minded peers seeking a new challenge to scale their impact

Creative business professionals and cultural change-makers with at least five years of work experience

WHAT YOU WILL HAVE LEARNED

Truth is there is no one-size-fits-all solution to personal transformation. Attitudes are and always will be a highly subjective matter. That is why we have created a different concept that combines different didactic formats, philosophical approaches and the latest findings from neuroscience and psychology. The result is a hybrid recipe that combines three essential ingredients:

EXPERIENCE:

A mix of an intensive trip that will provide you with the necessary impulses and the emotional triggers that can lead to sustainable impact. Because talking alone won’t do the job.

REFLECTION:

A fifty-day self-reflection that keeps track of your experiences along the way, triggers new thoughts, and forms a new habit of daily reflection in your personal transformation.

COMMITMENT:

Forming lasting habits takes time. Keeping up with change is hard. And finding the courage to execute plans is even harder. That is why we do this in a group. Creating lasting bonds during the initial retreat helps to hold each other accountable in a MASTERMIND community.

By working with the SHIFT® Framework you will build the capacity to

design your personal development plan to individualise your learning path

dive deep into your unique leadership style

discover your strengths and areas for growth with the help of our the SHIFTSCHOOL team and community

SHIFTSCAPE KICK-OFF

EMBRACE CHANGE.
THINK FOR YOURSELF.
TRANSFORM THE FUTURE.

The SHIFT® Path kick-off takes us right into the heart of the Bavarian Forest National Park. Experience a wonderful and intensive time together with your fellow changemakers. Learning is a social endeavor and bonding a group of excellent people in a combination of in- and outdoor workshops will lay the foundation of an unforgetable learning journey.

HOW DOES THE SHIFT® SELF-LEARNING WORK?

Our 50 day self-learning program will help you to reflect on your learnings, implement new routines, and to keep track of your progress. The program with 50 challenges offers you the opportunity to write, sketch, and reflect your thoughts. Question your beliefs and give shape to your thoughts! Putting a thought on paper has a great effect. It allows you to see things from a different angle. The new perspective can help you to see things more clearly and detach from the unconscious thought patterns that are so deeply ingrained into your mind. They influence the way we think and act – much more than you would like to admit. Your mastermind and your virtual coaches will make sure that you do not run away when things get harder. This program is also an obligation because not doing your exercises means coming with empty hands to your mastermind meetups and letting your companions down.

A CHANGE STORY FROM SHIFTSCHOOL

Silvia, Service Designer at Volkswagen, talks about her learning experience and how her attitude changed. She explains why the SHIFT to follow a growth path towards personal mastery and excellence is so important.

HOW MUCH IS THE TUITION?

The program costs 3,500 Euros excluding VAT and covers the tuition, course materials as well as accommodation and food on workshop days.

How does the application work?

We are looking for people who are leading initiatives, organizations or communities that are playing some part in forging a new “Story of Better”. People who see the future as something we want to create together and not as something that we’d rather like to avoid. Each candidate must submit their purpose statement as their starting point for their SHIFT. Something they want to shift towards.

We reject fast food learning and passive content consumption as well as egoistic and inconsiderate behavior towards the group. Our leadership programs are designed as immersive learning experiences. We are looking for individuals who thrive in a community of like minded peers and share an authentic interest in getting to know other participants for who they are, and who they want to become.

We believe that learning is a social endeavor. It is our goal to build lasting relationships, not shallow encounters. Every cohort is formed as a unique community of highly skilled individuals who remain deeply connected and committed to each other and their shared experience.

Are you in? To start the application process, please fill in the application. Once submitted, you will receive an email containing a link to schedule an interview. The goal of the interview is to find out what motivates you to join the community. We will let you know within a week after your interview if you are accepted into the next SHIFT® journey.
