Most of my clients are senior executives who want to become more effective in leading their organizations to achieve better business results and to improve personal effectiveness as individuals and leaders. They are intelligent, hardworking, motivated and have a strong desire to continuously improve themselves. Certain behavior may be holding them back from becoming more successful.
A Managing Director of a world leading healthcare company was very good at consistently delivering business results that exceed management expectation – yet he was abrasive and always short-tempered in dealing with his direct reports and peers. Through coaching, he became aware of the cause of his behavior and learned what triggered his negative emotions.
I then helped him increase his awareness of his emotions and interpret the events that triggered his emotions positively so that he could respond in a way that would benefit him the most. As a result, he was able to reduce his direct report turnover and improve team work with his peers.
I conducted coaching to the senior leadership team of a large Hong Kong conglomerate to help the team perform at a higher level. The participants, including the division head and senior directors, were made aware of key obstacles and challenges that were holding the team back from being more cohesive and productive. Through the coaching, they were then able to map out key action items to bring the team to a higher level of performance. As a result of the coaching, the team became more positive toward one other and more productive as a team which led to improved business results.
My 32 years of corporate experience in global brands (P&G, BASF, Honeywell, Emerson, Ecolab and Danaher) helped me accumulate a vast experience in leadership and management. I held senior executive positions such as General Manager China, Vice President & General Manager Asia Pacific, Sr. Vice President & General Manager Asia and President China.
I am a certified coach with the International Coach Federation. I received my BS Chemical Engineering degree from the University of California and attended Executive Development programs at the Ross Business School of the University of Michigan. I am accredited in Harrison Assessment, WorkPlace Big Five, Benchmark 360 and TrueProgress 360. I also have experience in applying FIRO-B, FIRO-Business, MBTI and DISC for personal development.
I strongly believe that sustainable improvements and behavioral changes start with the renewal of the mind. Coaching at the “being level” is a precondition for successful changes. I help leaders think better so as to make better choices in order to achieve optimal outcomes and reach their goals faster. Three words describe my coaching style: Caring, Patient & Challenging.
