After my parents, the person who has influenced me the most in my life has been my coach! said a successful business leader.
My conversations with my coach catapulted me into entrepreneurship with elan, something I wanted to do but was fearful! said another eminent professional. Everyone needs a coach! says Bill Gates.
What a year it has been. After a momentous beginning in 2018, all of us at at BIY pulled out all stops in 2019 to further the profession of coaching, one of the most powerful intervention for behaviour and mindset shift, growth and performance, emotional and psychological wellbeing. And we did it in the manner we know best; with a spirit of collaboration transcending across boundaries, working deeply with all our communities, course correcting as we went along and in as many innovative, unperson and virtual ways as we could.

Our intent was to “up the ante” on awareness on coaching. Demystify many myths which still surround it, articulate and sharpen its value proposition, clear the “air” on how it’s different than other interventions, bust the “taboo” around “who should get coached”, democratize and widen its scope beyond executive leadership coaching to life, growth, performance, relationship, building personal brand, career transition, talent coaching and bring into fold many many experts who are creating, practicing and influencing the model, concept, applicability, relevance and impact of coaching!
It was gratifying when we heard you say:
1. You have dramatically helped us build a leadership culture of having conversations using coaching competencies of listening, empathy, probing, creating safe spaces and supporting solutioning - CEO of $ 3Billion business.
2. What you’re as a coach did for me is help me pause to introspect and reflect on my behaviours. How I come across to others and consciously support me as I focused on making the right behaviour change keeping my stakeholders expectations in mind thus not only winning minds but also hearts - Business leader for large pharmaceutical company.
3. It’s as a direct result of coaching interventions that today, I have managed to deepen my relationships, learnt how to networking more effectively, overcome many of my stage fears and build a brand for myself - Women HR Head.
4. By having deep conversations with my coach, I have managed to overcome many of my own limitation. Have started to think of alternate and innovative ways to grow my business and build a growth mindset - Upcoming entrepreneur
