OUR APPROACH
YSC’s approach to leadership strategy helps organisations understand their current leadership against what they need in order to achieve their desired future state. We largely focus on the top five to ten percent of leaders within the organisations that we partner with globally. We bring a collaborative spirit to our work—everything that we do is done with our clients, rather than done to them. This allows for trusting relationships that go deep and effect meaningful change in the way leaders conduct themselves and evolve their organisations. Through this approach, we uncover insights that will help answer these critical questions:
  • Do you have the leadership to achieve your future business strategy?
  • If not, how can you build the leadership, interactions and culture to drive change for the future?
  • And if you can’t, what leadership and cultural transformations will make your strategy possible?
