What participants are saying

“I find myself applying the learning in everyday situations, like actively listening when talking to friends and focusing more on what other people are saying rather than what I am going to say next in the conversation.”
“For an opportunity with no cost, I'm surprised by the level of support and material available to help you make the most of this. The professional coaches are always on hand to answer questions and the allocated coaches help you create a longer term plan and grow further personally and as a coach.”
“The learning from this programme has already positively impacted my work as a Customer Success Manager as I'm able to connect with my customers better and ask better questions. My learnings are helping my grow professionally and accelerate my career.”
“Build Up is delivered by coaches who have a great amount of experience and I think this is the most valuable aspect of the programme.”

Know You More’s mission

The prospect of increasing confidence in coaching skills in younger leaders like you offers a real possibility of making a difference in how we tackle the personal, interpersonal, cultural and global challenges of today and tomorrow. Yet, these skills are far from being widely available to young adults.
  • It is estimated that less than 5% of coaches in the UK are 30 or younger
  • The average cost of coaching accreditation ranges between £4,000 and £12,000
Know You More is a digital coaching organisation with a social purpose. We reinvest our profits into our social enterprise activities that focus on using coaching to develop leadership skills in the 18-25 year old population.  Our vision is to grow the reach of coaching beyond its traditional boundaries and to a more diverse and intergenerational audience.
