Strengths & Positive Change
I specialise in Strengths-Coaching & Appreciative Inquiry to help clients explore extraordinary possibilities - focusing on what is right and not just merely addressing deficits. I am a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach and Certified People Acuity® Coach (Strengths Strategy). Using our proprietary StrengthsTransform™ programme, we've reached more than 15,000 clients in Singapore & South East Asia in just 5+ years.
Cyber Wellness & Media Literacy
Since 2001, I've been designing & validating intervention programmes for cyber wellness. In 2003, I played a lead-consultant role in conceptualising & propagating the "cyber wellness movement" in Singapore. That has since taken root & evolved to become a mandatory part of the Singapore Education landscape. In these years, I've had the privilege of designing programmes to reach more than 1.5 million clients through my consulting / training business (current) & by leading a non-profit organisation.
I believe media (digital, information) literacy is the critical challenge of our times. Ubiquitous access & constant connection to the Internet have brought unprecedented shifts to personal lives, relationships, families & society. My research interests include Internet & video game addiction, online privacy & online aggression. I design programmes to change attitudes & behaviour (risk factors) & to teach protective factors.
A genuine belief in interdependence undergirds the StrengthsTransform™ approach. I partner with an amazing team of staff & associates from Amplitude Consulting & Kingmaker Leadership Institute. Discovering & synergising diverse talents is a constant focus with our clients, but also an everyday focus for our team.
