My name is Marie Gervais

and I'm the CEO of Shift Management Inc.

I am a learning professional with a PhD in culture and learning in the workplace. My own management experience has been with multicultural teams with up to 8 projects at a time, supervising between 5 and 35 team members per project, responsible for million dollar budgets, and responsible for keeping multiple stakeholders happy.


Since that position a number of years ago, I have worked with many industries and seen hundreds of supervisors and managers in industries like manufacturing, oil and gas, robotics, engineering, power, social work and not for profit sectors.


Something that has always really bothered me is how unhappy many people are at work


Mostly this is because so few people at the front or middle management level actually get the kind of tools, resources, and training they need to lead real human beings. They just don't have the understanding or strategies to work effectively with people!


How can you resource your team to do their job if you yourself don’t have the necessary skills to get them there?


In 2008, I started a company to focus specifically on that middle spot where those employees who are good at their jobs get promoted to management and need some targeted assistance with developing that new supervisory skill set.


My Supervisory Leadership Certificate course, is research-based and uses real industry examples as the foundation for the content.

“I was skeptical before starting this course, but I found all the sessions useful to my job and to improving my leadership skills.


There are good tips and practical strategies to help you improve which have been positive for me​.


I would say my supervisory skills have improved particularly from reflecting on the exercises and implementing the goals to my job.

David Rivers

From unconscious behaviour to intentional relationship building

“I found this course to be useful for both new and experienced managers and leaders. This course covers information that is typically overlooked in a workplace and helps understand the relationship between team members and their supervisor. The questions and assignments are designed in a way to get one thinking about their daily actions
