Employee engagement and motivation is the new catchcry in our fast moving world.

We are moving faster but not smarter. Most progressive companies know what happens when staff is not engaged, focussed and motivated.

Our YB12 Coach team is a movement of passionate, like-minded people who genuinely care about the outcomes of their clients.

To accomplish the company’s goal of empowering one million people, YB12 has developed a unique training and support program to enlist the support of passionate practitioners around the world.

We’ve been involved in business and personal development for more than 25 years. Up to now, YB12 Coaches have presented to thousands of audiences worldwide, and over 200,000 people have participated in our public seminars or attended in-house workshops.

At YB12, we are joined by people from all walks of life but there is one thing that is common to every single one of our team members. 

That’s a genuine passion to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We expect that from all YB12 team members.
