The aim of Youth Coaching is to support the next generation The intent of Youth Coaching is to provide personal coaching experiences that would build capacity for future generations in their chosen profession or support them in deciding what path to take. The purpose is
- Supporting graduate students with individual coaching as they begin their careers and make their integration into employer organizations.
- Making participants more aware of professional coaching by allowing them to experience it firsthand.
- Increasing the quality of young professionals and indirectly shaping the future culture and professional coaching culture in the mid and long term.
A recent award winning Youth Coaching Program for young HR Professionals conducted by the ICF in partnership with a Hungarian university had great success
The program’s impact was evaluated in the context of both the wider HR profession and the personal results for coachees. As a result of the program, more than 80% of coachees indicated that they believe coaching should be a part of every learning and development program for leaders, HR students and HR professionals.
More than 70% of the coachees experienced positive change in the areas of awareness, self-esteem, self-confidence, persistence and paying attention to relationships. Two participants even attributed receiving job opportunities as an effect of the coaching process. The uniqueness of this initiative is that it not only set future leaders up for success, but it also planted the seeds for coaching to have a greater reach in society.
UQ has conducted a similar program which also had overwhelmingly positive results.

- Steve Taylor - YOUTH COACHING
When I started working with Ben he was frustrated and un-motivated, with low confidence and a lack of direction he felt stuck and bored. This self-doubt created no desire to pursue challenges and held him back from perusing the promotion he desired at work. He knew he had more potential and wanted to break out of the everyday grind. Fast forward 6 months and ben has his mojo back and has been promoted, had a pay rise and the happiness is bubbling over to every other area of his life. Boredom is a thing of the past as he is about to compete in his first Tough Mudder, a goal he could not have imagined 12 months ago.View More
If you want to experience the kind of change that Ben did I welcome the opportunity to be your coach.
