Their approach to coaching teams and executives is contextual, that is, it takes into account both the human dynamic and our business’ strategy and goals. They really understand us and helped craft strategies that shape the impact leaders have on our company. They know how to get all levels of the company working together.

"STS has been a valued partner of the Kerry team since 2004. In that time they have supported us in many of our key executive development processes – they have helped develop our global competency model, and currently support our succession planning and leadership development efforts around the world. STS has been an optimal partner for Kerry because they focus on facilitating our company's work on strategy and people planning rather than taking over the process or expecting Kerry to use a pre-packaged approach."

"STS worked with our leadership team and quickly proved they have an uncanny ability to help people open up and share a common perspective. Once our goals were established, they guided us through an action planning process with each of our executives. They see the common issues that we should work on as a team. They see these things we can’t see ourselves and help us create action around it to make our business stronger."

“Working with my STS coach simply exceeded my expectation. Because he fully understood the dynamics of the bank and my role there, we were able to reach new insights and develop specific actions to help me create new management routines. These tactics were always tied directly to my work, helping me to simultaneously do my job better and develop more effective executive skills. I am confident my experience with STS will have a long term impact on my ability to manage and lead.”
