The Best Year Yet (BYY) programme has been a great guide to delivering an outstanding year for the team.

The coaching has been a big plus for the team; we have already seen improvements in the team's performance and we are also more aligned as a senior management team. We are now one team with a clear purpose and direction and our results so far this year speak for themselves.

The Best Year Yet Programme, combined with the highly professional coaching, unquestionably generates extraordinary results.

Finance Business Partner Team

Our team have made significant strides forward in achieving our best year so far and certainly without the Best Year Yet Team Programme we would currently be struggling to deal with the pressures facing us. The most significant milestone has been the development of trust amongst our team to an extent I have not experienced before in my career. The structure that the Programme brings drives delivery and accountability. Together and individually, Best Year Yet has made a real difference to me and my career.

Financial Services Group

My Best Year Yet Coach has helped me to cut through the 'noise' that often gets in the way of achieving results that matter most in my business and life.

We were a new team created following the merger of two businesses. During this time of significant change Best Year Yet helped us to bring to the surface some of the issues that were holding us back. One year on, we have come a long way on our journey, have achieved some great results and had fun as a team. We now use Best Year Yet and our coach to help us step up to the next level of performance.

Corporate Banking

I have been working with Best Year Yet with the Team Programme for the past 18 months with 2 different teams. As the Head of a team of 23, the programme has provided me and my direct reports with the necessary tools and guidance to help us perform as a single unit with common goals. Our Best Year Yet Coach’s guidance has given my team clarity and direction to deliver our best year to date.

I would recommend Best Year Yet to any person or team; the Team programme, in particular, I have found to be a very valuable tool, which can be repeated over and over again, successfully.

Team Programme

The process by which our Best Year Yet Team Programme Leader encouraged and motivated us to develop our desired legacy and our stretch goals on the first day we met was a powerful experience. It is fair to say that the team were, with few exceptions, experiencing a raft of negative emotion for a combination of reasons.

Our Best Year Yet Programme Leader encouraged us to articulate and share those emotions, and then turned our perception of those negative emotions into something positive, which ultimately led to the achievement of our objectives.

Looking back on our achievements as a team, we achieved some exceptional results. Reducing outflows by 10% felt ambitious in May last year, but we surpassed expectation comfortably. Communicating better as a team, given the way people were feeling at the start, similarly felt ambitious, and Group Partnerships is a more joined-up, cohesive unit as a result.

Individual Programme

My individual sessions with my Best Year Yet Coach were stretching, albeit always in a positive way.

From a work perspective, the work with my Best Year Yet Coach was absolutely invaluable. My principal, personal, challenge relating to my work role was with regard to my credibility as a leader. I was relatively recently given a management appointment, for some time. However, I have built an enduring legacy as a credible leader since my sessions with my Best Year Yet Coach began, as evidenced by the feedback that he has sought on my behalf.

I would not hesitate to recommend Best Year Yet and its coaching for any business, team or individual looking to enhance and stretch the results they believe they are capable of.

Team Programme

Our Best Year Yet Programme Leader and coach has been a fantastic support to my team. We had a team brought together from different parts of the business and different businesses, with a new leader (I was brought in from outside of the Group) who were struggling to understand their role and their identity in the business. With Best Year Yet’s direction, we came through this with great togetherness, great pride in our team and delivering great results for our clients and our business.

Our Best Year Yet Coach has also provided individual coaching to myself and members of my senior team. This coaching has been individually tailored to our needs and in all cases has been action and results oriented. All team members who have been involved have gained significant self-insight and personal development from working with Best Year Yet.

We were setting out on such an audacious expedition that I knew it would take a tightly run ship to make it work. We needed a focus and plan or we’d never make it. Using Best Year Yet together helped us do exactly that. The results we achieved were truly incredible!

At a time when we were expanding our business into new markets it was essential we invested in improving the skills of our 40 strong leadership and management team. Undertaking effective performance and development reviews to drive up the performance of our workforce was a key strategy and given Best Year Yet’s background and experience, our Best Year Yet Coach was the ideal person to help us on this journey. We are now seeking to engage Best Year Yet’s invaluable input into the next phase to implement a range of development programmes across the business.

I have been on many Executive Development programmes and have found the Best Year Yet Team Programme far more effective than any other I have been involved with. The programme has provided real vision and commitment and has achieved buy-in on a scale that I have not experienced previously.

I would highly recommend it to any organisation that wants to achieve excellence.

Individual Programme

During the Best Year Yet workshop, my Best Year Yet Coach enabled me to look at my life and career afresh as well as thinking about things more deeply than I had done so for many years.

During the year I have had a major career change, passing a PhD in Neurophysiology in just 6 months! I have created a new, stable environment for my 2 children and met my life partner, as well as settting up a new business, which has a stream of new and devoted clients.

My Best Year Yet Coach made me focus on the important things and forget the trivia with which we are all distracted on a daily basis. I have so much to thank him and the whole Best Year Yet programme for.

Meteorically successful people seem to have none of the hindrances I had to overcome. I think of them as mythical figures. Mortals have to knit their own chain mail, and what Best Year Yet did was give me the pattern.

I have known and worked with many coaches and programmes, and not one provides what Best Year Yet does. My business has tripled in sales and quadrupled its profitability from the previous 12 months alone, whilst having a huge positive impact on the other key personal areas of my life.

I can’t recommend the Best Year Yet Individual programme highly enough. If you’re thinking about living a long held dream and making it reality, just work with it. My Best Year Yet Coach adds massive value and strategic direction to my business.
