THE MOST INTERACTIVE HIGH STAKES EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE & PERSONAL LEADERSHIP GAMES

Play. Learn. Make SHFT Happen.

YOUR DECISIONS ARE YOU

Our programs create massive personal and professional change – in one day.

We design our content so that there‘s something for everyone. From leadership, personal development, relationships, Emotional Intelligence, to company growth, teamwork and empowerment – we’re covering the subjects that matter most. There is games, play, interaction, fun, coaching and workshops for every profile and job role. It’s basically 1 day of learning and inspiration for anyone, individuals and teams.

INTERACTIVE LEARNING THAT WORKS

One thing SHFT Happens will never be… is a conventional training. We’re talking about the boring, meeting-room trainings we’ve all been to. We’re the opposite of that. The modern event spaces, our inclusion principle, our tailored approach, our L&D-free terrain and our casual vibe are just some of the reasons people love being part of our events – and why you will too. Take charge of your Personal Development in our interactive, high stakes, experiential simulations.

You’ve got the brain power, we’ve got the games to tap into it. Our facilitators are certified by the world’s biggest game brands, including LEGO®, EQ-i, and SAMURAI GAME®. Check out our portfolio so far – we’re just getting started.

THE ULTIMATE COMBINATION BETWEEN EQ & GAME

Break down the boundaries of traditional training. SHFT Happens borrows from both L&D and game worlds, and allows the participants to literally play and experience their Personal Development and Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

Step into the world of a Samurai or experience the world through the eyes of a child for a day. Boost your self-awareness. Supercharge your Emotional Intelligence. Improve your personal / leadership skills.

TEAM BUILDING YOUR TEAM WILL ACTUALLY LOVE

Sometimes, the best way to learn and get inspired is to meet likeminded people from other industries and walks of life. Whether you’re looking to connect with potential new partners, employers, teammates, or your next hire, you can be sure you’ll find them at SHFT Happens.

Plus, the bigger a team you bring, the more you save on tickets. We’ve also got exclusive additional perks for groups of 25 and up.

“This was the BEST experience I have had.

There are so many things I took away. Here are a few: A much more complete and realistic perspective about leadership; A clear understanding of areas I need to work on to become a better person/leader & A great opportunity to experience close connections with a diversified group of people.”

C. Douglas, University of San Francisco

27 June 2019 - BOXING SHFT

The BOXING SHFT methodology is an interactive process where we move the center of learning from the head into the body, giving you and your teams access to all aspects of intelligence—intellectual, emotional, and physical.

We’ve combined Boxing with Emotional Intelligence & Analytics to offer you a unique, robust and unbeatable hands-on, minds-on day of professional and personal development on an individual and company level.

DETAILS

When: Thursday, 27 June 2019 | 18:00 – 21:00
Where: TSH Collab | Wibautstraat 131D Amsterdam
Who: Individuals & teams

Is this for me? 

Honestly, it’s not for everyone! But when we are a good fit, it works really, really well.

The BOXING SHFT methodology is particularly effective when:

  • You are prepared to deepen your empathy and walk a mile in another person’s shoes
  • You work with people
  • You are seeking to improve your relationships, both personal and professional
  • You know that insight and knowledge alone can’t produce breakthrough behavior change

Is this suitable for people who are not into combat sports?

Some call boxing the “New Moving Meditation”. The BOXING SHFT is a non-violent workshop which is more intensive on a mental, than on a physical level. We are simply leveraging boxing and movement to create massive personal and professional change. Both, women and men, the competitive and not-competitive, the extraverted and introverted will find this methodology engaging and transformational.

The SAMURAI® SHFT simulation & methodology are particularly effective when you are prepared to ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I have what it takes to be a leader who displays iron self-discipline, 100% commitment, inner calm in the face of adversity, honor and integrity?
  • When the going gets tough, rules do not easily apply, and the future is unclear—how do I show up as a leader?
  • When distractions are everywhere, how do I remain present and focused?
  • When no one is watching and the consequences are uncertain, do I act with integrity?
  • When my team’s integrity is tested to the limits—do we turn against each-other or get stronger?
  • When I encounter challenges, can I tolerate the discomfort of new learning or do I retreat to old patterns of behavior?

See you and your team on June 29?
