Coaching Approach

My coaching approach varies according to different style and need of each client, but not limited to:

  • Challenging mind’s status-quo and provoking thought
  • Being at the moment and actively listening
  • Using illustrative manner and theoretical learning
  • Engaging and insightful
  • Reflective and Rethinking
  • Directive and explicit manner

By leveraging extensive coaching experience and coaching sensitivity, I skillfully tune in each coaching conversation and deploy the right coaching approach to fit every client’s coaching needs.

At the same time, my holistic coaching approach empowers leaders to achieve the best selves from every aspects – body, mind, spirit and business results in relation the whole.

I specialize in growing leaders from The Inside Out, working extensively with executives to help them develop into value-creating leaders with the courage to commit to authentic  personal transformation and achieving exceptional business results & successes.                        

Typical Clients

I mostly work with Senior Executives and C-Suite to help them develop organisational leadership and enhance personal effectiveness to become impactful industrial leaders, which drives significantly greater business results and organisation’s performance & influence. I excel in unleashing executives’ greatness to become the best that they were meant to be, to achieve breakthrough results and create sustained success.

Results Achieved

I partnered with a regional CEO of a global Oil & Gas company for 12 months coaching programme. The main focus was setting corporate strategy and working with the board. The Regional CEO was viewed indecisive in setting the direction for the organisation and used to involve extensively the board.

The process of the coaching engagement includes creating awareness, challenging entrenched views, application practice, organisational leadership development, enhancing personal agility, improving effective communication, and self- management.

As the result of the coaching engagement, the regional CEO effectively made decision in setting the company’s vision by including strengths & purpose of the company, business values & opportunities, and expectations from the board, investors, employees and other stakeholders; developed a good relationship with the board by not just creating good connection with the chair and individual board members,  but also forging good alignment and collaboration between the board and his top executives; and enhanced his capabilities in balancing board’s inputs and company’s business growth.

I coached the Managing Director of a global consulting firm to improve personal effectiveness and developing her leadership team.

In the first year of transitioning into the organisational leadership position, the Managing Direction was facing challenges including time management, setting priorities and building a strong high-performing leadership team that she inherited.

The coaching engagement was 12 one-on-one coaching sessions, and along the developmental process she already gained clarity on the challenges she was facing. By leveraging on her high-quality resources and support she was able to manage her schedule and priority effectively.

Specifically on building the leadership team, she first authentically connected her personal purpose to leadership needed with the  executive team, and identified developmental needs for a few individuals. She delegated Talent Development Personnel to ensure the effectiveness of the Development Program, and dedicatedly engaged with the team to review the progress and outcome. She successfully developed best-fit talents to those high-value roles.
