Why SHIFT?

SHIFT is a peak-performance and leadership consulting company focused on “Prioritizing the Business of Health to Improve the Health of a Business.

Our clients hire us to develop their leadership teams and optimize workplace productivity by leveraging the creation of systems and individualized programs that integrate behavioral neuroscience, functional medicine/movement, mindfulness, and executive health coaching.

We work with corporate leaders, sales representatives and business executives to SHIFT their performance into high gear.

We accomplish this by implementing programs and coursework focused on creating sustainable brain-based habits that will serve their personal and professional goals.

We bring a science-based, yet real-world approach to common problems faced by the modern-day leader in business. With globalization, always-on technology, and major market volatility, corporate leaders and high-level employees are under immense pressure.

Our methodologies are able to simultaneously eliminate the noise while making our clients more effective in all aspects of their life and business. 

What Problems Do We Solve

Our clients hire us to create individualized programs and consulting services for the workplace in order to optimize leadership, mindset, productivity, and output.

Although this is no easy task, we accomplish these outcomes by simply integrating holistic coaching and business psychology into a step-by-step program oriented at helping individuals reach their highest potential for peak results without sacrificing their personal/professional quality of life.

Our Story

Our company started out with a simple observation.

An observation of seeing people repeatedly struggle to find balance in their personal, professional, and social lives as a result of inadequate energy levels, diminished cognitive function, and poor general health due to workplace-induced burnout.

We saw people who were fighting to barely survive in order maintain the status quo of working their entire lives, find their way to retirement, and THEN start living their life. Life rarely works out in this way, so why do we all assume that WE are an anomaly in this fairy tale ending?

Over the past decade, we have seen multiple trends focused on innovative business ideas and systems that were designed to increase functionality and profitability for business, most of which relied on new communication platforms, advances in computer-based technology, and updating human resource departments.

So why are we still struggling to produce efficient business systems and engaged employees in the late 21st Century?

Simple. We haven’t looked at the BRAIN.

Within the last 5-10 years of research, neuroscience has seen an explosion of information in the areas of cognitive development and behavioral psychology, but businesses are still decades behind in their ability to implement many of these strategies and systems into their business models to increase output while decreasing employee burnout and fatigue.

SHIFT was created out of the necessity and understanding that every single one of us has the unlimited potential to increase our ability to improve our brain, which leaves limitless possibilities in a limitless world of business and innovation.

SHIFT was created out of the necessity to help as many people as possible who are struggling with their ability to successfully be present at work and at home.

Throughout his tenure in clinical practice, Dr. Reis continuously saw patients who were struggling with their health as a result of their job requirements and workplace environments, which warranted the question “How can WE make work a healthier place?

 

And SHIFT was created.

Dr. Reis believes the connection between optimal neurological function and physical health is essential to understanding how to fully maximize brain function and cognitive performance in the workplace, which is why SHIFT takes a multifaceted approach in working with business leaders and employees to optimize team communication, workplace productivity, and employee engagement.

He is a peak-performance leadership consultant, executive health coach, and national speaker. He has spent the last decade studying, treating, coaching, and consulting high-level business individuals on finding ways to improve their ability to maximize their bodies, brain, and in turn, their businesses.

From the clinic to the boardroom, he’s leveraged his deep understanding of neuroscience and behavioral psychology to help entrepreneurs and business owners worldwide. 

Dr. Reis has had the distinct pleasure of working with some of the top global brands and publications throughout the world, ranging from Under Armor-MyFitness Pal, Addicted2Success, Workforce.com, The Brain Health Magazine, Thrive Global, The Good Men Project, The Presidents Forum, Evolv Health, Manna Relief, and the Twin Cities Wellness Collective.
