Become a Certified Shifting Gears to EPIC Leadership Facilitator

Join our 4 day Shifting Gears to EPIC Leadership facilitator certification program enabling you to deliver this innovative, game changing program in-house within your team and/or organisation or to your clients.

Shifting Gears to EPIC leadership is not your standard leadership development program. It is an immersive learning experience based on the latest research (not the latest fads) from the fields of Neuroscience, Positive Psychology, Emotional & Conversational Intelligence, Mindfulness & Learning.

The program has been designed around the way the human brain works and is structured in a way that supports the various ways adults learn to ensure a positive, memorable learning experience for all. We even start the program by teaching participants how to learn, something that many courses and programs take for-granted but something that can have a huge impact on the success of the program. Learning how to learn and how we as facilitators can help people to learn more effectively is key to the success of any program we deliver and when we do it right, it results in improved learning transfer & knowledge retention and guarantees return on investment for individuals & organisations.

Participants in this leadership development program will step out of their comfort zone, peel back the layers and dig deep inside themselves as they explore the different competencies & traits of an EPIC leader.

What is an EPIC leader?

EPIC leaders are not average leaders, they are not great leaders, they are extraordinary leaders. They extend themselves beyond the usual or ordinary expectations of a leader and are always aiming to take their organisation and their team to the next level and people want to be a part of that, they want to be part of something bigger, that has meaning and purpose. They want to contribute and feel valued and that is what EPIC leaders do. They create the environment for others to thrive.

An EPIC leader is a leader who facilitates significant, sustainable and positive change in organisations, industries, cultures, communities & nations by guiding their teams to new ways of thinking, believing & behaving.

EPIC leaders are teachers, coaches, mentors, confidants and everything in between. They are also:

  • Empowering, Engaging, Empathetic & Emotionally Intelligent
  • Purpose-driven, Passionate, Proactive, Patient, Positive & Present
  • Inspiring, Intuitive, Innovative, Inquisitive, Interested, Intentional, Impactful & have unquestionable Integrity
  • Courageous, Coaches, Confident, Compassionate, Committed, Charismatic, Creative, Conversationally Intelligent, Consistent & have a ‘Can Do’ attitude.

What outcomes should you expect for your organisation or your clients from the program?
