Coaching & Mentoring

Few businesses can make the transition to business agility and continuous innovation without a fair share of coaching and mentoring. This means that everyone in an advisory role, or some consultancy capacity, must understand what it means to be lean, agile, and innovative. Persuading others to change is hard when coaches and mentors don’t lead by example. In this program, they learn how.

Our continuous learning program for Coaching & Mentoring consists of five levels: Booster, Advancer, Professional, Expert, and Master, and each level consists of many objectives to complete. As a continuous learner, you are in control over the activities and your chosen path toward completion. You can choose to earn points in different roles by reading articles, watching videos, listening to podcasts, participating in meetups, attending webinars, and much more. It’s your journey, your calendar. You decide how to move forward until you earn your next diploma. We are here to help you get qualified, not certified.

The entire Coaching & Mentoring program covers 58 topics. The table shows how many points participants need to earn, per topic and per level. The required number of points increases steadily over the five levels. And some topics require more points than others.

Note: the program is open and crowdsourced. The Shiftup team is not responsible for creating and providing all content and events. When the available activities are insufficient to complete objectives, we expect learners to find and suggest activities so that we can add them to the library. Submitters of new content and events will be rewarded with extra points!

It is easy to get started. Sign up and evaluate one or two articles or videos. This will get the ball rolling. Alternatively, you can check out upcoming events or participate in one or two workshops. All activities result in points and, ultimately, an enjoyable learning journey and a completed qualification program!
