The mission of SHFT Happens is to develop and deliver accessible, relevant, and research-based offerings to individuals, teams, organizations and universities so that people have the emotional and behavioral foundation they need to feel worthy, feel seen and live braver lives.

equipping professionals



The future of work offers unparalleled opportunities. 

Globalisation, technological progress and demographic change are having a profound impact on society and people. It is crucial that organizations help employees and society at large to manage this transition with the least possible disruption to their wellbeing, stress-levels and health, while maximising the benefits. 


These challenges are beyond what any single company or leader can tackle. By teaming up we will create the best solutions for this new world. And since there is no “I” in teamwork, we took the “I” out of SHIFT



20% higher Emotional Intelligence in 24hrs.
The programs that we design and facilitate enhance Emotional Intelligence and Wellbeing by 20 percent in 24hrs.
We do this by blending the best methodologies.
And designing Learning Experiences for peak human performance.
Transformational in-person and online learning experiences.
We host unique events and labs across the Netherlands. SHFT Happens is learning without lectures, classrooms, grades, or degrees. We don't teach theory for the sake of theory. Everything is real and revolves around you: your objectives, your level, your tempo and your growth.
Learning with us is an adventure.
But not the kind of traditional learning you were taught in school. Our programs are designed to unleash the fullest potential of your mind, emotions, and spirit. It’s about being a champion at work. Experiencing joy, love, and fulfillment. Connecting deeply with the people and communities around you. And contributing your unique gifts to the world.
A curriculum for the future
The SHFT Happens curriculum is designed for a future that’s already taking shape. For instance, according to the World Economic Forum, by 2020, 10 out of 10 "top skills needed to thrive" will fall into the Emotional Intelligence category. We believe it’s time to go beyond memorizing facts, into learning metaskills that amplify our mind and allow us to function as highly evolved human beings.
Building tribes
We are building global community of coaches, thinkers, entrepreneurs, dreamers, rebels, parents, teachers, visionaries, professionals, artists, innovators, community leaders, students, inventors, healers and more. Because we believe that community is the most important pillar of a healthy ecosystem, and the key to making a positive impact on humanity.
