What People Are Saying

  • We ran most of our employees through the CYSU program to expose them to what I believe are the gifts of self-awareness and taking ownership of their personal growth. While I can’t put a dollar figure on it, this program delivered the results I was hoping for and I’ve seen a palpable positive change in our workplace. I’m excited to see our employees opening up more, engaging more, and being more empathic towards each other.

  • We are positioning CYSU as an innovative foundational component of our approach to Career Development. What could be more helpful to an employee for taking ownership of their career than learning to see where their behaviors are getting in their way and giving them tools to address that?

  • This new program provides skills to participants to bring their whole self to the office. Employees have given me feedback that this specific class has helped them be more effective and authentic in their interactions with managers and others in the office, where previously they wouldn’t have spoken up or shared how they were feeling. It’s the real-life applicability of the training that makes the biggest impact in a business, and that piece is clearly here with Coach Your Self Up.

  • I’m looking forward to applying the ideas and techniques the program taught us to improve the way I “show up” at work and in life. I’m still finding ways to apply the learnings from CYSU practically every day.

  • I'm almost two months removed from the program and have found that I'm still paying better attention in meetings. This course also taught me techniques that I have been able to successfully apply to my professional and personal relationships.

  • I put many of the CYSU learnings into use immediately, and am still consistently drawing from the self-coaching skills I learned in this course. I have seen a big improvement in (and am continuing to make positive strides against) one of my own self-limiting behaviors. As an HR Business Partner, I have found that CYSU has helped me to be a better coach to others on career development, managing stress, and getting out of their own way with certain self-limiting behaviors.
