MentorShift® is Lori Bachman’s creation. Lori’s experience ranges from senior leadership coaching to building high impact product teams, with clients across the nation. She is a highly effective speaker, trainer and communicator.She is a certified leadership coach through the International Coaching Federation. (ICF/ACC)
Lori’s passion is mentoring and for good reason. During both her corporate career as an aerospace finance executive and as a business owner herself, she has seen companies flounder in mentoring programs that often have a short shelf life, fall to the wayside as “last year’s initiative,”and then the same formerly involved individuals give up and walk away because mentoring seems too hard or awkward. Those employees don’t just walk away from a mentoring program; they often head straight for the door.
Her years as a financial executive and corporate leader have given her a keen eye and vital insight that, for businesses, there is an essential equation for success:
Effective Mentoring = Engaged Employees = Higher Productivity = Less Attrition =
Increased ROI and Stronger Bottom Line
For this reason, she has dedicated herself to teaching a forthright way to pass on skills between any mentoring pair or team that not only benefits the organization’s goals, but also equips each individual to mentor others.
Lori earned a Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Denver and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Wheaton College (IL).
Prior to launching The MentorShift Group in 2011, Lori led teams in multi-billion dollar merger and acquisitions projects. In that role, she enjoyed “helping everyone play together well on the playground” as she navigated the waters of combining oftentimes rival companies to create shareholder value.
She grew and matured in her leadership in the aerospace world, and enjoyed years of working with and learning from real “rocket scientists”, gifted engineers and astronauts who had been to the moon and back. Literally.
Since launching the MentorShift Group in 2011, she has had the opportunity to work with clients across a range of industries: Banking, Wealth Management, Telecom, Aerospace, Manufacturing, Engineering and Technology.
Lori lives with her family in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. With two teenagers still at home, there is never a dull moment. You might find her relaxing by hiking with the family in the nearby Rockies, tinkling the ivories on her piano, or playing a delightedly wicked game of Words with Friends.
