    Coaching For You

  • Coaching has been the key factor in turning me from a manager into a leader. I regard my relationship with my coach as one of the two or three most valuable I have ever had in business.Bernie OBrien, Strategy and Product Leader, Mercer (Australia)

  • From Good to GreatCoaching For You

  • Coaching is a proven and effective means of realising your full potential. It can be a critical factor that tips the balance between success and failure and is particularly valuable at certain points in your career. These include: Moving from a technical to a leadership role in which delivering through others is critical.

    Transitioning to a new, more demanding role, especially if it involves managing managers and a more enabling coaching style.

    When you are tasked to do more with less. When greater levels of confidence, purpose and meaning are needed. Thinking about future career promotion, direction and succession. When the need arises for an impartial but experienced expert who can hold up an honest mirror.

    When you are ready to develop a leadership signature that works better for you and your organisation.

    Coaching has given me greater strength to believe in what I do well and greater insight into my own effectiveness.Vince Hawksworth, Chief Executive, TrustPower (New Zealand)

  • Our DistinctivenessCoaching For You

  • PsychologyAs business psychologists our coaches are particularly skilled in providing genuine insights. Clients are frequently surprised by the depth and significance of the changes they are able to make, especially when compared with other coaching they have experienced. A background in psychology also brings with it the expectation of high professional standards in client care.

    CommercialityWe are business coaches. We look for a 3-way partnership between coach, coachee and organisation in order to create a positive and profound commercial impact. At the same time, our knowledge of the broader business environment makes us invaluable as trusted advisors.

    AssessmentYSCs industry-leading assessment expertise is well known. From over 40,000 deep-dive interviews with business leaders, we know what great looks like and we use this to benefit our coachees. This same skill is also used to assess and match our coaches to an individuals needs.

    CapacityWe have 150 coaches based in 25 different countries and we can coach in 25 different languages. Our coaches represent a tremendous range of experience and styles that enables us to support globally consistent coaching interventions whilst providing just the right coach at an individual level.

    We see our distinctiveness in five main areas:

    ProcessWe offer flexibility based upon an underlying process. We look to agree coaching goals at the outset and use our proprietary Pulse Tracker to monitor a coachees progress. We run evaluation surveys to demonstrate a clear return on investment and to monitor the quality of the coaching we provide. We want and expect to make a measurable difference to our coachees and their organisations.

    Our DistinctivenessMy YSC coach skilfully combined elements of support and challenge to create a very positive and active coaching experience. I believe this has been the most effective coaching intervention of my career.Garry Fingland, Global Delivery Director, Diageo Plc (UK)

  • I found my coaching from YSC invaluable when I moved into my first senior role. Without it I would have been a far less effective manager and would have contributed a great deal less to longer term strategies.Stephen Page, Chief Executive, Faber & Faber (UK)

  • External CoachingCoaching Your People

  • When to call upon an external coach?We know from our High Performance Coaching workshops how much managers within an organisation can benefit from taking a coaching approach. But there are still times when an external coach is required, such as when:

    The history between an individual and their manager complicate matters.

    A greater level of rapport is needed. It has to be someone impartial, with no vested interest in the situation.

    More time is required than a manager has available. More skill is required in order to deal with emotional issues or deeper, limiting beliefs.

    It would help to have the support of someone with broader experience of leadership or the sector.

    My YSC coach was a gifted listener who provided keen insights into feelings and motivations that are often difficult
