About us

Founded in 1990, we are a leadership consulting firm, comprised primarily of consultants with backgrounds in psychology and the behavioural sciences, working with organisations to unlock the power of their people. We have over 100 consultants operating from 20 international YSC offices.

What makes us distinctive?

Thought leadership – We are an intellectually inquisitive and challenging firm, and we pride ourselves on developing distinctive thinking.

Being genuinely global – A significant proportion of our clients want a genuinely joined up and interconnected service across their business. We are able to deliver this for our clients because we are a tightly integrated firm. We invest considerable time and effort to ensure that all of our consultants operate according to the same philosophy, understanding and benchmarks.
