Founder & Chief Leadership Officer

LeaderShift Bootcamp

This isn't a training...

Why? Because you can't train leaders. You develop them. That's been the biggest gap in the corporate leadership training industry and is why it's failed so many organizations. The solution? We scrapped training and focus solely on development. Training is something leaders dread and will try and avoid, whereas they will embrace and look forward to development. Development is nuanced, contextual, collaborative, fluid, and above all else, actionable.

Who we are...

LeaderShift Bootcamp was founded by Organizational Leadership expert, college professor and consultant, Dr. Kimberly Shediak. At LeaderShift Bootcamp we focus on people, test courage,and maximize potential. We emphasize performance, effectiveness and solutions. By doing so we enrich your culture and expand your influence. We explore the unknown and move people past their comfort zones. The result? Happy, engaged people that drive the bottom line and have a heck of a great time doing so. We...

*Focus on solutions, not problems.

*Provide measurable results.

*Decrease employee turnover.

*Focus on the people not the roles.

*Use a dialogue, not a monologue.

*Ignite your vision.
