*Any growth journey can feel overwhelming. We have an adventure guide so you can ease your way into this.

 

More than ever we need leaders who excel
at the intersection of 2 realities:

 

COURAGEOUS ENOUGH

to grow their influence

KIND ENOUGH

to use their strength to protect

 

The SightShift Leadership Academy will train you in both.

There are 2 obstacles currently holding you back:

You've been sold a lie.

Everyone feels stress. You're not doing life or work wrong because you feel overwhelmed. The real secret is what you do with that feeling.

If work was easy there would be no opportunity for development. If relationships were easy they would be boring.

When you're challenged then it's time to learn skills. Want to be the one who is hiring, leading, and setting the strategy? Learn to be great in meetings and become awesome at leading meetings. Become brilliant at helping others develop into high capacity leaders. Become your best where you are in all categories of your life. Don't be afraid to exercise your power.

You might feel over-worked and under-utilized. You may hope for more impact in your job. Know this: more of the same actions will deliver your current results. Burn out happens when you can't make meaning out of your actions.

The best leaders have access to the best resources.

Every action that will get you to being the most aware, savvy, effective, and safe leader that you can be is a learnable skill. And if you learn from those more advanced than you then you can learn the application of the skill faster than you would on your own. 

 I'm sure you have the desire. But to develop yourself to your highest potential you also need world class training in your reach. 90 -95% of most workers aren't identified as high caliber enough to be deemed worthy of the investment for an aggressive development program.

This is why The SightShift Leadership Academy exists. The world needs more courageous and kind leaders of all ages in every sphere. The academy exists to teach you the necessary skills.

What is The SightShift Leadership Academy?

 

From the deep to the simple The SightShift Leadership Academy is dedicated to teaching you the skills that will help you be your best as a leader. As a result you'll develop into a competent and high performing individual who impacts everyone around them. 

The academy is launching with 6 courses so you will have everything you need. The learning is designed to stretch the participant with an exercise to learn the skill and achieve the outcome. There are currently over 70 videos and 100 downloadable audios structured to transfer learning in the most effective way possible.

Want to learn how to lead meetings like a pro?
Need to know how to tell a story to influence direction?
Facing a leadership crisis and need help on making great decisions?
Desire to figure out how to focus your efforts into more effective impact?

You will:

Become confident in the most difficult of relationships.
Get clarity on your mission that transcends your job.
Process your day to close open loops that create anxiety.
Use your problems to build momentum in every category of your life.
Employ practices and strategies to stay focused and motivated.
Be happy with yourself regardless of circumstances.
Develop awareness to build great teams for life and work.
Become a brilliant leader that can discern what each moment needs.
Invest who you are to grow your most important relationships.

The SightShift Leadership Academy has it all from the tactics to the strategies to the deep principles. You will repeatedly be taken to the edge of your abilities by the training. Much more than productivity tricks and motivations this is long form learning that will shape you into being your best.

You will suffer in life. And suffering can make you cruel or passive. This is why many leaders act from fear or indifference. SightShift will teach you how to lead with vulnerability and no longer self-sabotage.

REAL PEOPLE SAYING NICE THINGS

Chris McAlister’s content on leadership is like none other that I’ve seen before. He quickly gets at the heart of what true great leaders are made of and how folks can transform themselves. The best way I can describe his essence is a psychologist, a leadership expert, a sage and a comedian all wrapped up into one. He has helped me and several of my teams to improve, not only their work performance, but also in other aspects of their lives.

I’m forever grateful that I was introduced to Chris. At the time, CHAARG was growing rapidly, ++ I was struggling — it was getting hard to manage the increased number of people, + I needed *systems* in place... but I didn’t know where to begin. Chris was a *self-help guru* — but I was a bit skeptical... I felt like I didn’t need to work on that [I practically live on self-help books], so I asked if we could just work on the business side. Little did I know, Chris would help me on #AllTheSides of business [systems, management, leadership, visionary], but also help me so much in my personal life. I can’t thank Chris enough, ++ I hope to always have him a part of my life — as a mentor + friend.
— Founder//President of CHAARG, Elisabeth Tavierne

Working with Chris has easily been the best thing I’ve spent my money on all year in terms of ROI. I’m very lucky to have found him so early in my career, but his methodology is important for anyone, in any age or career path. The first few sessions with him will be transformative, and you’re guaranteed to have a few watershed moments. Then you realize that it’s not just about those large revelations, but instead it’s a lifetime of learning and practicing, using his framework for growth. The reason Chris’s work is so important is that it’s fundamental, rather than a trend or quick fix. It’s the distillation of the expertise of hundreds of authors, coaches, and leaders before him, made into a program that’s easily understandable and immediately applicable. Jam with him on books, podcasts, religion, or business problems, and then dive deep into relationships, communication, leadership, management, and growth. Get ready to see yourself differently.

Before SightShift I was spinning my wheels. I was missing the big picture. I was getting lost in managing the inventory, the employees, and the stores. Immediately during the first couple of sessions I could cast vision for myself and the business as a whole. This led me to be able to re-organize the way I operate day to day with the business. On a personal level as we got deeper into the content I realized how much I struggled with building my identity around the brand and the business. Through the identity work I was able to separate my identity from the business. I was able to be Nicole, a whole human being, who can be calm and present in the chaos. I haven’t come away perfect but with the continued help of SightShift I am more effective at recognizing when I am hitting a point that I need to be aware and not over powering. I can quickly come back to my center where I can lead from a whole place not a overly reactive one. Figure That Shift Out will help you get to a place of awareness that will help you move forward. I continue to be reinvigorated and inspired.
— Co-Founder of Native Cold Pressed Juice, Nicole Salvo-Davis

I had been reading heaps of self help books about unblocking yourself creatively and how to live with the resistance. I tried to get better by raising my intensity which lead to burn out. I felt like I had reached the top level of my self taught Kung-fu and now I needed a grand-master to guide me. Someone to “Mr Miyagi” me and help connect my own dots. I had also just started my first business which was putting pressure on me that I had never experienced.

Chris is one of the smartest people I have spoken to and is a freak when it comes to this stuff…the more you invest in him the more he comes right back at you.
— Shaun Singh (said in a New Zealand accent so you know it's cool)

We have noticed that self help doesn’t stick. Luckily we found SightShift and were able to make permanent changes in our everyday lives. Intensive two day training with Chris McAlister was an eye opening experience. This helped us to figure out our fears and unlearn old habits. Practical tools were easy to use because they were introduced at a personal level. Our organization has noticed the change in us and the better results we achieve in our leadership. This is why our management is eager to bring this to the whole organization. SightShift would bring a big change to Finnish corporate culture!
— Salla Alajoki and Pasi Iisakkala

After having trained as an ER physician I came to Chris deep over my head after taking a leadership position at a Health Insurance company. My years of training in medical school and residency hadn’t given me the training and skills I needed to lead my team. SightShift has helped me to get to the root of my desires to uncover my fears and lead from a secure identity. Chris then helped build the administrative framework that has helped me reshape the culture and efficiencies of my workplace.
— MD, MBA, MPH, Dr. Robert Cooper

With each passing season, and in my best and worst moments, SightShift has helped me to find direction. By honing the mindset that I am so much more than my decision-making in business, I can find peace at the end of any day.
— Managing Partner for One Line Coffee, Mick Evans

Who Is Chris McAlister?

chris-01.png

Brief and written by someone else: 

Chris McAlister is the founder of SightShift, a company that helps ambitious people be courageous and kind.

Living in Columbus, Ohio with his wife and three daughters, McAlister spends his free time hanging out combining things. He's particularly fond of three combos: running&sauna, bourbon&bbq, and watching The Office with his family.  He’s authored 5 books, spoken to thousands of people, and loves the work of helping others unblock their best leadership.

A bit longer narrative of highlights and lowlights:

Once upon a time...there was a kid who loved to build forts, started a jewelry business in the ninth grade, and read a book about the illuminati the same year. Somewhere around 1992.

and every day...He wanted to hang out and have a good time until something changed his freshman year in college in 1995. He got crazy passionate about helping people to grow. Studied leadership, psychology, and theology rabidly to help others. Accumulated some degrees while doing everything from filling a role as clergy and then a college professor. Helped start a church. Looking back he realized most of his clergy work was leading overhauls of the organizations and construction/fundraising efforts for big relocation efforts. Best thing he ever started was a family. Married in 2000 and by 2005 was a dad of 3 daughters.

along the way...He started teams and led people. He made stupid hiring and firing decisions as he went from the extremes of being a demanding leader and to the opposite end of being a push over. Sometimes he was too aggressive. Sometimes he was too acquiescent. He hadn't learned how to be kind and courageous.

until one day...Made a lot and lost a lot in real estate and a business venture. Like a lot. Everything that felt certain now felt like an illusion. Went from extra margin every month and never paying a bill late to not knowing how he could buy a box of Cheerios for his kids. An eviction notice, a heap of shame, and an existential crisis left him "scraping bottom".

and because of this...He realized a lot of the driving reason he wanted to help people grow and lead was because he wanted to feel good about himself. He realized he thought well of himself based on how he performed. So he went on a quest. Researching for years in multiple fields while earning a doctorate from a seminary helped him see the connection between ancient wisdom and the modern science of performance.

until finally...He learned to relax and feel good about himself in the highs and the lows...most of the time. 😉 This unblocked an ability to be aware, present, and emotionally attuned.

and ever since that day... He loves helping people grow in their awareness to lead at their best and be good humans. 

FAQ

Q: WHAT IS THE VIDEO CONTENT LIKE?

A: Check the sample content in the course listings above.

Q: WHAT ARE THE OTHER FORMATS FOR THE CONTENT?

A: All videos have a downloadable audio option. There's a workbook for each course. Transcriptions are also coming later in the year.

A: Check out the Adventure Map. You'll be sent a welcome email with instructions and the Adventure Map included. 

Q: MAY I SHARE MY LOGIN?

A: We're obviously on the honor system here. We encourage household sharing but not coworker sharing. 3 of the courses are drip content and designed to take you through a comprehensive transformation process.

Q: WhAT'S THE NEXT COURSE YOU PLAN ON ADDING?

A: There is already a 2 part audio for a seventh course. An eight course is being honed in with some select coaching clients. New content is always fleshed out through invite only coaching programs before it is made available as a course. For those that choose the group level coaching they will get access to the group chats and teaching.  As SightShift grows and responds to needs of students an eye is kept on the greatest need. So in short, to be determined. 

Q: ARE ALL THE COURSES AVAILABLE FOR Immediate streaming?

Q: Why WOULD I WANT TO PURCHASE FOR A year upfront?  

A: You need at least a year to complete everything. Even that pace would be too fast...A year isn’t long enough. It will take at least a year to walk through the available information. While change/improvements will be seen instantly, committing a year to grow will provide the time for a complete experience for every category of your life. Three of the courses (FTSO, FTWO, FTLO) are set to a 3 day drip schedule to ensure maximum growth will occur as opposed to binging the material. Also more courses will be added and those subscribed will get immediate access.

A: Refunds are available 3 days after purchase for upfront annual payments only. For monthly payments you would just cancel your subscription in the account you'll setup after you pay. You can cancel anytime.

A: The content is optimized for all devices. Content can be accessed and resumed on any device.

Q: WHAT IS THE CERTIFICATION PROCESS?

A: For those interested in bringing the Figure That Shift Out content to their company or offering the coaching to others, there is an option for certification. More details can be accessed by going to www.sightshift.com/certification. You can complete the certification course and teach it to others without being certified. We encourage that.
