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 school.

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 development groups.
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 practices.

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 private business.

The challenge to today’s workforce is to help people best think, react, perform and how to adapt to what the future brings.
- BCI provides a people performance strategy, for all persons, that’s based on today’s proven, cutting-edge behavioral science.
- Our courses help you understand people’s needs today and build tomorrow’s next-level performing workforce, successful leaders and sporting heroes.

Why the Institute's courses are invitational only..
Our Programs include the latest, evidence-based, behavioral science and are only designed for qualified professionals who have the requisite skills and commercial opportunity to practice coaching at the highest level.

The Institute’s invitational programs provide experienced people developers, who have a relevant record of professional and academic achievements, the exclusive opportunity to obtain advance level coach training and a means to place themselves atop of the global coach market.

We are proud that many of our graduates are senior talent management officers in Fortune 500 companies and global leadership consulting groups.

The Institute’s programs also provide an important opportunity for senior L&D, HR and private practitioners to further their career in people development.


The world’s leading companies trust BCI.


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.

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 65 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.

 The Institute's foundation for its educational courses is supported by cutting-edge behavioral science and access to the world's leading commercial users of workplace coaching:

1) -
BCI is 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.).

- The institute is also a trusted 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.

Over the last decade BCI has gathered unparalleled expertise in assisting organizations drive behavior change. Our propriety corporate coaching technology and change tools are backed by a global team of highly qualified and experienced organizational change agents.

The Center for Applied Behavioral Coaching (a non-for-profit research organization) -is an international team of leading coaching educators, behavioral scientists and practitioners engaged in ongoing research and development.

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

The 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.

Through the Institute's extensive research activities we are able to provide 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 personal development and business.

 The Institute's Graduate Schools

The Institute's 3 Graduate Schools (Graduate School of Master Coaches, Graduate School of Neurocoaching and Graduate School of Health & Applied Sciences) -are the major executive educational arms of the Behavioral Coaching Institute and provide invitational, professional courses to highly qualified people developers only (versus open-programs to the general public).

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

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

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

The flexible, modular approach to course content is aimed towards coaching professionals at all stages of their careers, from entry-level through to mid-career development and updating.

Dr. Perry Zeus'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 his team are internationally recognized as leading authorities and educators in psychological-based professional level 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 a coach training course designed by world recognized behavioral coaching scholars / industry experts" -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.

The professional education for coaches falls into two categories - those qualified individuals aspiring to become professional coaches and practising coaches. The Institute's specialist Graduate Schools provides modularised courses which are tailor made to suit each participant's level of professional development.

-Our Proud History and Tradition




B.A, M.C.P, PhD, M.A.P.S, M.I.S.H

- BCI's Founding Director
  of Education



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. Through the Institute's advanced-level, Master Coach Courses, Perry and Suzanne were able to guide participants how to select and master the appropriate methodologies, tools and processes they required for their internal or external practice.

An experienced adult educator and now international best-selling author Dr Skiffington also found time, as a guest lecturer, to teach coaching in some of the region's leading universities.

Today, the Institute's certification courses are universally acknowledged as the industry's highest level coaching programs. The masters-level, industry-recognized courses (continually updated with cutting-edge content) show select participants how to establish, market and manage a world-best-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 courses only contain 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 Coach Certification Courses are 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.

  An international School via Distance Learning:
Through global publication and distribution of Dr Perry Zeus and Dr Suzanne Skiffington's text books and articles over the last two decades they are now internationally recognized as pioneers in the development of coaching models and methodology. Today, with their elite courses available via Self-Study format their students are to found in over 70 countries and in the world's top organizations. Many of their coaching clients are also listed in the Business Who's Who.

Decades of research, development and teaching builds lasting legacy:
In the last few years Suzanne dedicated her time to teaching the professional coaching and business skills she developed during her distinguished career to the Behavioral Coaching Institute's faculty members. Today, the unique professional development, Masters level, Coach training courses she helped pioneer alongside Perry are continually updated by an elite team of internationally recognised coaching experts. Her lasting legacy is that through the Institute's acclaimed courses she is still able to share her humanistic values 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 Zeus's course graduates and his best-selling coaching text is estimated that Dr Zeus's coaching methodology has been used in the last decade by over 1 million people."  -HR News

  An open letter from Dr. Suzanne Skiffington
    -The Institute's Founding Director of Education

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 other people development 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 are 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
S.M.Skiffington B.A.,MCP.,PhD.,MAPS.,MISH
