Senior Accountant

Company Overview

YSC Consulting is the world’s premier independent provider of leadership strategy services. Leadership strategy is the intentional design of the individual leadership styles, the team dynamics and interactions, and the workplace culture that are most likely to enable successful achievement of an organization’s desired future state. We help organizations understand if they have the leadership they need for success, and we work with them to get there.

Our People

YSC is an eclectic group of professionals grounded in the rigor of the behavioural sciences and practical realities of commercial and organizational demands. Our consultants help organizations connect the dots between business strategy and leadership. We create a consistent experience for individuals and organizations globally, but with careful attention to the needs of the local markets and cultures where they operate.

  • We are more than 225 employees in 20 offices across 15 countries around the world.
  • Our consultants have varied professional backgrounds and hold advanced degrees and industry credentials in psychology, organizational behaviour, management, adult learning and leadership, and related fields.

What We Do

In the 30 years YSC has been practicing in the leadership development space, we have partnered with more than 50% of the FTSE 100, and nearly 20% of the global Fortune 500 to help those leaders achieve their future business strategies. Our services include:

  • CEO succession planning and board development.
  • Executive assessment and development for individual leaders.
  • High-performing team development.
  • Inclusive leadership and diversity services.
  • Services for private equity firms and portfolio companies (pre-deal, due diligence, post-deal integration and firmed-focus capability transfer).

Our Approach

YSC’s approach to leadership strategy helps organizations understand their current leadership against what they need to achieve their desired future state. We largely focus on the top five to ten percent of leaders within the organizations 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 organizations. 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?
