Helping people soar higher
- By creating a behavior-based performance strategy.
More than ever, a performance strategic approach is required to
developing, and growing talent now and into the future. With
behavior focused coach training courses, you can focus on
behavior skills that drive performance —the skills you have and
the skills you need—so you can build a workforce that’s ready to
tackle today, what’s next and produce a cascade of breakthrough
results along the way.
The Behavioral Coaching Institute (BCI)
An important point of history is that
prior to the immense growth of the coaching market 30 years ago,
BCI courses were in a group of only three coach training
credentialing courses available in the world. In fact, BCI
established the world’s first professional coach training
The BCI premium brand
BCI has always only operated in the top-end of the coaching
marketplace. Our Fortune 500 clients see the Institute’s
integrity as partly being due to the fact that we are very
low-key, we don't do things like advertise and we don't do a
song and dance about ourselves and promote a big public profile.
"Part of our brand image is quiet excellence” explains Dr Perry
Zeus the Institute’s founder.
BCI is a specialist premium coach educator known and
recognized by the world’s leading companies and people
Our large corporate clients have aligned with us for over 25
years because we continually provide the best available,
scientifically proven coaching toolkit and knowledge sets.
Mainstream coach training brands continue to aggressively
advertise mass-market, generic course offerings (ultimately
worth very little to the user) in order to cash in on the trend
for workplace coaching. Many providers claim to provide
science-backed courses but on closer inspection are just re-badged,
simplistic counselling models or dangerous pseudo-science
Living up to our elite brand image
Our premium brand course offerings share four primary
characteristics: 1) they offer proprietary knowledge and tools
you can't get anywhere else; 2) the course toolkit and methodology
produce unsurpassed results; 3) they represent world-best
standard and are used by high profile, successful companies,
hospitals, sporting organizations, learning institutions, and government agencies; and
4) they provide a strategic means for our clients to elevate
themselves in their marketplace.
The world’s leading companies trust BCI to help them produce
breakthrough results in human capital management.
- Our clients consistently achieve amazing results.
- We are innovators and developers of world best-practice tools that continue to change the world of people
development and define best-standards of professional practice
in the coaching discipline..
- Our clients are primarily referrals and we maintain a very
strong connection with senior people both in government and in
The challenge to today’s workforce is to help people best

BCI's BRIEF HISTORY
(Our parent organization)
Since 1994 the Behavioral Coaching Institute has sought
to;1) set the benchmark for the highest international
standard for practice-based coaching and the development
of coaching methodology, and 2) maintain its position as the leader
in the development of the world's top professional coaches.
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).
of the Institute's Achievements:
BCI was the world's first international

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 65 countries. Since 1994, the Institute has conducted

coaching. The Institute has established a number of key
structural units to pursue specialist depth of expertise,
knowledge creation and teaching in key activities.

employ an extremely rigorous scientific approach to research,
develop, test and validate coaching principles, models, techniques

at hundreds of research studies.
Institute’s courses take an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to
studying human behavior.
We use neuroscience (the structure and function of the human
brain, nervous system and body), cognitive science, psychology,
sociology, anthropology, philosophy and even quantum physics to
explore and analyze human actions, habits, and intentions. This
field incorporates social sciences which looks at the impact of
the environment on human behavior.
Behavioral neuroscience is concerned with the physiological and
developmental mechanisms of behavior.
Behavioral Science and Psychology
Behavioral sciences explores the systematic analysis and
investigation of human behavior through naturalistic
observation, controlled scientific experimentation and
mathematical modeling. It attempts to accomplish legitimate,
objective conclusions through rigorous formulations and
observation. Examples of behavioral sciences include psychology,
psychobiology, anthropology, and cognitive science.
Psychology Is primarily the study of the Mind and Behavior.
Psychology can be defined as the study of mental processes and
behavior. Psychology emerged from biology and philosophy.
Behavioral science takes a holistic view (brain, mind and body)
of man in his/her environment and focuses on behavior or "output". It
attempts to make formulations based on what can be observed. Its
primary emphasis is understanding behavior change. Psychology
is a cognitive science (how we think) and
focuses on cognitive processes -- namely, mental states, or the
study of the mind.
Behavioral sciences includes the latest scientific studies of
people and organizations whereas psychology is a century old
discipline based on established theories.

a unique course that provides the student high level
practitioner skills and an extensive, validated behavioral
toolkit to understand and change behavior both in a context of

reputation as the path to obtain the world's elite business
- 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
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.

participants how to select and master the appropriate
