OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF ONE MILLION PEOPLE, WHETHER THAT’S THE STAFF OF COMPANIES OR COACHING ONE-ON-ONE.

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.

The profession of Psychology tends to have a predominant focus on pathology, problems and emotional pain relief. As a Psychologist, I am excited about the YB 12 program with its focus on educating and empowering people to flourish and see possibilities, not problems. The YB12 program has a solid foundation using sound psychological principles in a pragmatic and accessible way. I am personally excited and energised to share this program and work with clients as a YB12 Coach.
