Facilitation. Inspiration. Possibility.

Shift Facilitation: the Solution for an Evolving Future of Masterful Facilitators

More than just facilitation. We deliver experiences that drive change.

During the delivery of a program or workshop, you can find yourself wondering, “is this really going to change what we do next?” Those moments are why we do what we do. Facilitation is more than just leading a session or teaching new skills—a masterful facilitator creates an experience that helps people unlock what they need next to succeed.

 

That’s why we love this work. With over 20 years of experience, we live and breathe facilitation, whether we’re at the front of the room leading a workshop or at the back of the room cheering on our students. We take the work of facilitation seriously as a profession, not just a job to be done.

 

And we’re on a mission. We’re connecting people to each other, to new ideas, or solutions—and making a difference. We’re using our extensive experience and deep expertise in facilitation to help our clients create meaningful change.

why shift

We are fueled by a passion for serving, developing and inspiring the next generation of change agents. Here are 5 reasons why working with Shift is unique:

We respect facilitation as a profession, not just a skill set.
Exceptional facilitators are experts in learning theory, behaviour change, conflict resolution, unconscious bias... there’s no shortage of elements to learn, practice, and master.
We know great facilitation is art and science.
Creating a transformative learning experience requires scientific analysis, preparation, and skill. There’s also an art to it by having a deep understanding of your audience and the energy you bring to every session to create a memorable experience.
We believe every facilitator can be a catalyst for change.

Our programs and delivery methodologies ensure that new skills are being taught, but it’s much more than that. We’re helping people grow, achieve more in their careers, and reach new levels of success. Great facilitation can be the spark that accelerates growth and makes transformation possible.

We know every session is an opportunity to make a difference.
We’ve been doing this work for decades. And, we’ve kept the excitement of hope and possibility alive. Every session, in even the smallest of moments, can unlock new thinking and possibilities. We’re looking to create these moments in all of our work.
We live and breathe this work as practitioners, not just training trainers.
We are in the classroom at least three days a week. We work closely with our clients to design and deliver. It’s our competitive advantage. We’re on the path to mastery too, stretching and innovating how we deliver outstanding experiences.
