Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in leadership development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Chris McAlister, Founder of SightShift, located in Pataskala, OH, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

SightShift is a transformational and mindset leadership coaching business. We serve CEOs to build their leaders, and we serve coaches as they impact others.

Tell us about yourself

I love the work I do and the team I get to do it with. SightShift was born out of my own struggles and journey for how to learn not to build your identity around your business. I love what we do and doing the work as it keeps me centered while I impact others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Getting our proprietary measurement tool built. It measures the potential for transformation. There's nothing like it.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Reducing the complexity to simplicity. Communicating and then incentivizing that simplicity.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Is this an idea you can commit to and enjoy working on for a long time?
  2. Do you know the difference between building a business and a practice?
  3. This applies to coaches. What process of transformation does your business provide?

Where can people find you and your business?
