BRIEF HISTORY
(
BCI -
our parent organization and a research and educational institution) 

- Since 1994 the Behavioral Coaching Institute has sought to set the benchmark for the highest international standard for practice-based coaching and the development of coaching methodology, and to maintain its position as the leader in the development of the world's top professional coaches.

The Behavioral Coaching Institute grew out of the establishment of the world's first course for psychologists to be trained as coaches conducted by Dr Skiffington and Dr Perry Zeus in the late 1990's (see below page).  

Some of the Institute's Achievements:
BCI was the world's first international professional coach training institution. Currently, it is estimated that our graduates provide well over 350,000 coaching sessions a year. Our expert faculty members have provided invitational trainings in the use of evidenced-based, best coaching practices to qualified persons involved in people development from over 50 countries. Since 1994, the Institute has conducted advanced trainings at over 200 universities, corporate institutions and government agencies and our best-selling text books are published around the world in multiple languages. 

Today, BCI has an industry-focus (versus an academic approach) and is engaged in teaching, research and development and publishing of the highest quality across the field of business and executive coaching. The Institute has established a number of key structural units to pursue specialist depth of expertise, knowledge creation and teaching in key activities. The Institute also assists in the ongoing learning and development of our client's 'people developers' and conducts a global delivery program.

BCI's Corporate Consultation/Advisory Services:
Over the last decade BCI has gathered unparalleled expertise in assisting organizations drive behavior change. Our propriety coaching technology and change tools are backed by a proven global team of experienced facilitators, consultants and change agents. See: Corporate Education and Consultation


BCI's Research Activities and International Coach Training School:
 The Centre for Applied Behavioral Coaching (a non-for-profit research organization) -is an international team of leading coaching educators and practitioners engaged in ongoing research and development.

Research and Development
     -
The Centre is committed to research and the dissemination of information through the publication of books and articles.
     - The Centre constantly refines our curriculum, models and tools so our graduates can stay way ahead of their competition.
     - The Centre uses an extremely rigorous scientific approach to research, develop, test and validate coaching principles, models, techniques and tools. To find the hard data studies the Centre continually looks at hundreds of research studies.


 
 The Institute's Graduate School of Master Coaches
     
The Graduate School
(marketed as the 1-to-1 Coaching School on the internet / a private learning institution) -is the major executive educational arm of the Behavioral Coaching Institute and provides invitational courses (not open-programs) to highly qualified persons only.  

Exceptional CMC Course Facilitators:
The School's small group of highly experienced Facilitators and internationally recognized subject-matter experts deliver our flagship, 'world-best standard' coach training course around the world to select individual and organizational clients.

The Institute's School provide a rigorous, personalized educational experience for busy professionals with demanding schedules by providing a custom designed, focused, short-course structure. The School's niche one-to-one teaching and customized course format is unique in the world of professional coach education.

Unlike most other coach training providers, the 'industry-focused' School does not provide a "cookie cutter" training program or shallow or prescriptive or theoretical education. As a private learning institution providing personalized, "hands-on", customized learning, the School also aims to remain small enough so they are able to develop a long term personal and professional relationship with their graduates.

The 'one-to-one' individualized/customized approach to course content and teaching is aimed towards coaching professionals at all stages of their careers, from entry-level through to mid-career development and updating.

Dr. Skiffington's respect for: the values of education, personal responsibility and coaching's accountability to clients is deeply embedded in the philosophy of the Institute. The Schools 'world-class' standards reflect a fundamental difference in what we do and how we do it compared with anyone else.

Dr Perry Zeus and Dr. Skiffington are internationally recognized as leading authorities and educators in psychological  -based professional coaching:  
          "All coaches do not have to be psychologists. However, coaching is change and change is a psychological process. The coach has to understand the psychological aspects of coaching and be confident and competent to deal with these. To do so requires personalized, expert training and supervision." -Dr Skiffington

Today, the Institute's Masters-Level Coaching Schools attract the best students from all around the world and celebrates a growing list of successful and influential alumni.

-First and foremost the Behavioral Coaching Institute is a private educator but it is also:
1) -
the world's major developer of leading-edge, psychological-based coaching tools and techniques and spends over 50% of its revenues on research and development (graduate coaches have immediate access to the newest validated,      behavioral-based learning and change tools, techniques and materials available.) -and-
2)
- The institute is also an advisor to industry groups, professional development associations, private and public learning  institutions and government agencies in matters relating to the development of the professional coaching industry and     credentialing issues etc.

 



The professional education for coaches falls into two categories - those qualified individuals aspiring to become coaches and practising coaches. The Institute's Graduate School of Master Coaches provides a modularised course which is tailor made to suit each participant's level of professional development.

Summary.
    -The Graduate School of Master Coaches:-

  • is committed to maintaining its position as the world's leading provider of specialist business coaching education.
  • has established an enviable record for teaching and research excellence across a range of disciplines in the business and life coaching environment.

- BCI's Founding Director
  of Education
(1998-2007)

     
"BCI's Certified Master Coach Course has a long standing reputation as the path to obtain
  the world's elite business and executive coaching credential."
  -
H.R.Today. .
 

 


-
Dr Skiffington and Dr Perry Zeus (see below page) are internationally recognized as pioneers in the field of coaching in the workplace and have been interviewed on T.V., radio and in the print media around the world. Zeus and Skiffington's work and research in coaching has been reported in the world's top business, professional and scientific journals. Both have also lectured on workplace coaching in leading universities, consulted with various government committee meetings and hearings and opened international coaching conferences with key note speeches.

 

Dr Skiffington's formal qualifications included a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Masters of Clinical Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. She received international recognition for outstanding teaching and research. In the early 1990's while teaching psychology at university, her research in human performance in an organizational environment led her to begin coaching.

 

In the mid 1990's Perry Zeus and Suzanne Skiffington established a large practice which consisted of nine coaches and an international business client base. Their loyal clientele, spanning six countries, included several Fortune 500 companies and a number of high profile business and sporting identities. During this time Skiffington and Zeus wrote many articles on organizational coaching for various psychological trade journals. In 1997 Dr Skiffington pioneered and published research on 'Towards a Validation of Multiple Features in the Assessment of Emotions' that has stimulated new research and instrument development in this domain by personality, social and developmental psychologists. But something was to change all that.

In the late 1990's Perry together with Suzanne established the world's first course for psychologists to be trained as coaches. Executive and business coaching become mainstream when major universities began offering coaching degree programs. The first coach programs began in 1998 at George Mason University and in 1999 at George Washington University. In 2000 Dr Skiffington was a guest lecturer for the world’s first Coaching Psychology Unit at the School of Psychology at Sydney University. As her reputation grew, as an authority on coaching in the workplace, she was subsequently invited to speak on her successful coaching practices and techniques to hundreds of organizations and professionals involved in people development. 

 

 

During their travels, Perry and Suzanne were increasingly asked by the wider business community to develop a coaching certification program for professionals (as well as psychologists) that had a behavioral scientific basis and also contained their trade secrets for establishing a successful coaching practice. A growing number of coaching practitioners also began to seek a high level credential that would help them distance themselves from the rest of a rapidly growing disparate coaching marketplace.

Meantime, McGraw-Hill Education approached Perry Zeus about writing a how-to, practical coaching reference text that was urgently needed to fill a void in business literature. After considerable thought Suzanne teamed with Perry to accept the challenge to write their first coaching text ('The Complete Guide to Coaching at Work') and they passed the day-to-day running of their practice on to their partners.

By researching hundreds of research papers, studies, articles, books and by working with many of the world's industry thought leaders, leading providers and users of coaching, Perry and Suzanne were able to further develop the Master Coach training course. After training hundreds of psychologists they also began to conclude that: their course's large class format couldn't address the individual participant's specific learning needs and that many psychologists were simply not suited to become business coaches. 

Tackling the above issues, Perry foundered the Graduate School of Master Coaches and the Behavioral Coaching Institute (BCI) and designed a world-best standard, industry-focused, "hands-on" course designed for a very small group of qualified professionals with an established set of requisite people skills and a successful workplace track-record. The unique, invitational course was customized to each participants learning needs and delivered by Perry and Suzanne. 

By 2002, Dr Skiffington had co-authored two more groundbreaking books with Dr Perry Zeus ('The Coaching at Work Toolkit: A Complete Guide to Techniques and Practices' and 'Behavioral Coaching: How to Build Sustainable Personal and Organizational Strength' -see top of page: 'Coaching Books' tab). The books have received numerous awards, are translated in multiple languages around the world and are now standard course reference texts in at least 100 university and college degree programs. The books are also the UK's, Australasia's and North America's top selling organizational coaching texts. The Chinese government selected the books to be the first coaching texts to be translated and distributed throughout China. The first print runs where sold out within several weeks.

The introductory-level books document the many outstanding success stories of Perry Zeus's (BCI's) organizational clients and graduates across the world and have now become industry standard reference and resource materials throughout the global coaching community. Nevertheless, becoming a competent, successful coaching practitioner demands more than reading textbooks. As such, via the advanced-level, "hands-on" Master Coach Course, Perry and Suzanne were able to personally instruct each participant how to select and master the appropriate methodologies, tools and processes they required for their internal or external practice.

Today, the four day intensive certification course and pre- and post course 1-to-1 mentoring is universally acknowledged as the industry's highest level coaching program. The masters-level, industry-recognized course (continually updated with cutting-edge content) shows select participants how to establish, market and manage a world-class standard coaching business or/and implement successful internal coaching programs. As the new course applicant's relevant workplace experience became the major criteria of selection it followed that less than 7% of the participants had any formal psychological training. Today, the elite course only uses practical, proven, psychological-based tools and processes that are industry-focused and can be easily applied and learnt by participants who do not require any training in psychology. The Institute's students (a mix of highly experienced professionals with wide backgrounds involved in people development) simply require the formal structure, processes, tools and world best practices for their specific private or workplace practice.

The Institute's prestigious Master Coach Certification Course is now recognized by many Government Accredited Professional Associations (as part of their Continuing Education professional development programs) responsible for the supervision and training of professionals working in areas such as the behavioral sciences, management and human resources. For example; the Behavioral Coaching Institute are approved to offer continuing education as required by the State of California, Board of Behavioral Sciences. Today, many federal and state government agencies around the world have enrolled their key staff in the recognized course.

New Objectives:
Through the many publications and work with the Behavioral Coaching Institute, Dr Perry Zeus and Dr Skiffington are now internationally recognized as pioneers in the development of coaching models and methodology and are acknowledged as leaders in the development of workplace coaching tools and techniques. Meantime, many of their coaching clients are to be found in the Business Who's Who. As an experienced adult educator and international best-selling author Dr Skiffington also found time, as a guest lecturer, to teach coaching in some of the region's leading universities. 

Decades of research, development and teaching builds lasting legacy:
In the last few years Dr.Skiffington dedicated her time to teaching the professional coaching and business skills she developed during her distinguished career to the Behavioral Coaching Institute's (Graduate School of Master Coaches) faculty members. Today, the unique professional development short Master Coach course she helped pioneer is conducted by an elite team of internationally recognised coaching experts. Her lasting legacy is that through the acclaimed CMC Course she is still able to share her humanistic values (engagement of the whole person through the focus on learning rather than teaching) and proven success formulas with busy, professional people who desire to be qualified, credentialed coaching practitioners at the highest level.

 
Dr Skiffington's values of social care and our individual responsibility to practice such are deeply embedded in BCI:
Suzanne's life was dedicated to peace, humanity and spiritual development. Her human and cultural values took a broad and holistic approach to society and individuals. Her motive in the development of the science of the coaching model of change and learning was to empower people to improve their position in life and be active participants in social transformation. Suzanne valued human worth above power. Today, Suzanne's values are deeply embedded in the philosophy of the Institute. The Institute takes its global responsibility as a knowledge maker and educational provider very seriously. It continues Suzanne's work in valuing the best of the human spirit and in promoting learning and change though coaching imbued with intellectual rigor and a social conscious.


       
" Through the work of Dr Skiffington's elite course graduates and her best-selling introductory-level coaching text
            books -it is estimated that Dr Skiffington's coaching methodology and best-practices have been used,
            in the last decade, by over 1 million people and thousands of organizations worldwide.

     Behavioral Coaching.Institute

   


Dear Reader                                                                        May 23rd 2007

Coaching offers enormous potential for suitable professionals (as internal or external practitioners) to enhance their career, make a career change, or consultancy type businesses looking to provide additional services.

Coaching is now recognized as the key ingredient in achieving sustainable and measurable change and development for the individual, group and organization.

The Institute's Coaching Program offers a thorough curriculum for individuals who are already coaching professionals and for those who have the people development experience but lack formalized theoretical and applied knowledge. The content and structure of the program has evolved over a decade of graduate and industry feedback, resulting in a very high degree of student and client satisfaction.

The Coaching certification process, based on best practice world standard, also includes instruction in the vital business tools to succeed. The standards and skills taught will equip you with the required knowledge to excel in your chosen profession. To ensure your road to success the Institute's expert Faculty Staff also provide one-to-one pre and post-course support.

Coaching is probably the most fulfilling and exciting professional discipline available today for qualified, 'people-oriented' professionals. If you desire to realize not only your own potential but that of your clients then the life affirming world of coaching practice could be for you.

Yours Sincerely
SSkiffington
