YSC's coaching, development and succession planning capabilities can now reach hundreds of thousands of global leaders through CorpU's virtual platform
LONDON and NEW YORK, June 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Leadership consulting firm YSC have announced that they will deliver leadership talent solutions on CorpU's next generation collaboration platform. YSC accelerates leadership talent development through assessments that measure leadership potential, and development programs that strengthen leadership talent pools.
Brandon Hall Group's 2015 study on the state of leadership succession plans determined that 84% of organizations report a lack of ready leaders. Despite an increasingly faster pace of business change, only 44% of executives believe their leadership teams are capable of driving and effectively managing change, according to a "Workforce 2020" research study by Oxford Economics.
CorpU's cloud-based technology offers YSC new capacity to expand far beyond in-person workshops to deliver virtual courses on coaching, leading teams and assessing potential to thousands more leaders.
"The times call for innovative leadership development practices, which has brought YSC together with the virtual learning experts at CorpU," said Robert Sharrock, CEO of YSC. "CorpU and YSC have a shared understanding that addressing the leadership talent gap requires real-time collaboration and sharing of insights."
CorpU's platform is currently used by companies that want to build strong leadership teams, including WalMart, Dow Chemical, Aetna and MasterCard, to drive business transformation.
"We're excited to work with YSC to strengthen corporate leadership teams around the world," said Alan Todd, CEO of CorpU. "By combining CorpU's ability to help leaders execute strategic initiatives faster with YSC's programs that develop new leadership capabilities, our clients can go faster and know they're building a deep leadership bench."
YSC has been enabling businesses to leverage leadership as their greatest strategic asset since 1990. They have profiled over 50,000 leaders from global companies on the FTSE 100 and Fortune 500. For more about YSC's leadership insights or solutions, visit http://www.ysc.com/.
