Our Model



We believe Learning Crushes Knowing. We dive deep to understand your organization and the type of Leader who will thrive in your culture. We are relentless in our pursuit of identifying the best possible outcome. Hiring the right Leader requires the alignment of purpose, values, expertise, and leadership characteristics to create the greatest impact.



Through our Covert Discovery Process©, we cut through the recruiting noise and cultivate meaningful conversations and relationships with those Leaders who are most often referred to as “A” players or super stars. Simply put, we find those who aren’t looking to be found.



Possessing the right experience is table-stakes. Exceptional Leaders bring the right combination of purpose, values, expertise and leadership characteristics to help your organization reach its goals. Our Exceptional Leadership Model© is the holistic framework you need to achieve the best possible outcome.



You’ve chosen Y Scouts because you need the right Leader to join your team. We are dedicated to transforming how people and organizations connect to work that matters – it’s what we do.
