There are three main challenges for members of the public sector around their roles right now:
Many work long, unsocial shifts and this uneven work-life balance has a terrible impact on morale. This takes away precious time with your family and loved ones and away from living life on your terms.
Many feel that there is limited opportunities to develop. Combined with poor pay, benefits and an ever diluting pension. This only makes workers feel as though they are not paid their worth.
Dealing with dangerous, stressful situations on a daily basis has a major negative impact on your health and wellbeing. As well as the physical rigours of serving, workload and responsibility add to the daily anxiety and stress and it’s not helped by the lack of support.
We exclusively help ex- and serving members of the public sector to become entrepreneurs so they can build a better income and future for themselves, their family and loved ones.
I’ve seen the power of entrepreneurship and truly believe that people in the public sector are already well-equipped to become entrepreneurs with the unique skill set being in the public sector gives them.
We believe that members of the public sector, past and present, have skill sets that are highly correlated with successful entrepreneurs. We believe you can use those skill sets to build entrepreneurial businesses that make an impact and solve meaningful problems.
Our mission is to empower and enable the entrepreneurial heart in public sector workers by providing them with the skills, tools and resources they need, so that they can live life on their own terms, with more income, time and passion.
As a leading training company, we have a training philosophy around four key areas, which we call ACES.
We understand that business terms can be confusing. We’ll cut through the jargon to help you understand what it’s all about, help you know exactly what to do and how to do it. Don’t feel worried about asking any questions.
Your environment matters, so we carefully select who comes on our course by telephone interview. If you are surrounded by quality course-mates who want more from life and are committed to taking action towards their business goals, it makes everyone feel more energised and motivated to do the same.
We ensure that you are given the information at regular intervals in various formats so that you can understand one area of business before we move onto the next. You get focused sessions for each subject with our mentors, home-learning in bite-sized chunks, online resources and a supportive Facebook community.
In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030. While we support all 17 goals, our services are directly focused on improving goal #16. We empower members of the public sector to transform and shift their lives in a fulfilling way into entrepreneurship, thus, Promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
At Shifts to Success we believe that business should be used for a force for good.
That’s why we are committing to making a positive global impact in underprivileged countries by:
Providing an underprivileged child in Tanzania with access to life-saving water for a year every time someone joins our Accelerator!
Providing Shelter to an Underprivileged Family in India for a Month!
As entrepreneurs, it is our duty to solve meaningful problems, not only for our customers but to also help solve meaningful problems around our world.
