An Experiential Approach to Learning, Development, Feedback, and Growth

In a world where traditional feedback processes often fall short, a revolution in the way we approach learning, development, and growth is long overdue. The current methods, marked by criticism, confidentiality and a focus on fixing what is broken, have created a culture of apprehension and resistance.

At Shift Positive, we've studied the research, recognize the shortcomings, and have re-designed, tested, and refined an entirely new approach to feedback.

The Shift Positive 360® is an elegantly designed narrative 360 supported by a technology platform to help with administrative support (scheduling & tracking), consistent key messaging to participants, voice to text transcription, report generation, development planning, and progress measurement.

Shift Positive 360® is the next step in effective feedback and development that coaches, Human Resource Business Professionals (HRBP's), and Learning and Development Professionals have been searching for.

About Shift Positive 360 Certification

We believe in an experiential approach to learning and development and promise an interactive experience.

First, we focus on the model—how Shift Positive 360® was developed—the why behind the approach. We will cover the Positive Psychology and Social Support research that backs up each question of this unique approach, taking a close look at each aspect of the narrative interview.

Next, we focus on the methodology—how the Shift Positive 360® has changed the way people experience feedback and how you too can bring this approach to your clients or organization.

Through breakouts, participant role play, live coaching demos, interactive group exercises, and a focus on personal debrief time you will have ample time to practice this approach while also reflecting on how YOU are experiencing your own shifts throughout the training.

It is not just about the questions of the Shift Positive 360®, but also the shift that you make as a coach or LD professional in order to conduct the Shift Positive 360® effectively.

In the certification process you will:

  • Get grounded in key positive psychology concepts
  • Feel confident in using the Shift Positive 360®
  • Uncover and change assumptions regarding feedback
  • Challenge the traditional 360 approach of confidentiality and turn transparency into an advantage

  • Turn stakeholders into allies for your client

  • Become aware of your own mindshifts
