Coaching leaders to be:
Shift Coaching Group leverages 20 years of high-tech industry experience and decades of professional training to provide executive coaching and leadership training that shifts leaders into an efficient, effective gear. Why? Because being a successful leader in today’s corporate environment requires more than just being a technical expert and an individual contributor. It requires many of the same talents top athletes demonstrate — an ability to motivate and manage colleagues, maximize results with limited time and resources, and adapt to a constantly changing playing field.
