Leadership Development


Your people represent who you are... what you stand for, and what you believe in.

They are vital to your business’s performance, productivity, revenue, and success; . . . they manage and sustain your culture.

 Your People are what differentiate you from your competition... nurture, skill, train, empower, and invest in them.

What we do . . .

Shiift's 4 Tiers of Leadership Programs

Leadership Development 

From ‘team-mate’ to managing your 'team-mates'

Promotions are exciting, challenging, usually well-deserved - but fraught with ‘changes & dangers’.

The transition from 'doing' to 'managing' requires a whole new mind-set! 

When a person’s role changes – those around you can shift how they view a manager and change how they act & behave within the business.

Our half-day Workshop is based on organisational behaviour & psychological theories of behaviour change. Empower your Mate2Manager to:

  • Build long-term foundations
  • Create a culture of accountability
  • Increase workplace communication
  • Increase workplace staff retention
  • Increase team productivity

Our facilitators are successful long-term business owners & understand the realities of what really happens in the workplace & lead participants through a stepped process on how to achieve a successful transition.

All participants will create & implement an individualised, stepped, ‘Development Plan’ specific to your workplace, your situation, and your team.

The program is for:
  • New internally promoted mangers & supervisors, 
  • Identified future managers,
  • Informal leaders, and
  • Those in positions of high persuasion


 Leadership Development

For supervisors, managers & team leaders

Re-motivate your staff, boost morale, increase staff retention, strengthen teams, create respected leaders, and increase productivity.

This program enables those in key supervisory roles to be able to manage diverse personalities, diverse situations and lead their team to become productive, cohesive, motivated and self-managed workplaces. Especially suited for those who have had limited professional development yet are passionate about their purpose.

The program consists of 2.5hr monthly modules or 8 people (max.) and is a development program which allows participants time to implement and achieve positive change - rather than a one-off course which provides great theory but doesn't deliver on practicality in the workplace.

The program is for:
  • Internally newly-appointed managers i.e. promoted from being a team-mate to 'managing your team-mates';
  • Managers who have limited, or no, previous leadership training;   
  • Identified future managers; and       
  • Those who require a structured program to achieve permanent, positive outcomes.
