Partnering you to awaken the potentials in you, your relationships and your most meaningful pursuits.
Today I had lunch with a fellow coach who has Command talent. Firm, assertive and direct are what come easily to Gillian. Sitting comfortably in her settee, she exudes a presence you can’t miss. 

Gillian shares stories of how managing people’s performance comes naturally to her, from giving “dirty feedback” to letting go of non-performers.  Whilst she can call a spade a spade and take challenges from others head-on, she exercises sensitivity which was very much appreciated by others. 

Gillian’s Command is complemented with her Connectedness, Communication, Activator and Self Assurance to make her a confident member of senior management team in her previous roles. Sparring with her is like speaking with a gentle giantess. 

People with Command take control of a situation and make decisions. They do not shy away from confrontation and can be persuasive in compelling others to follow. If you want clarity and hear from people who speak their mind, approach someone with Command. 

Command is a rare gem, it is ranked 33rd among 34 Talent Themes in the Team Frequency of global StrengthsFinder respondents of 21 million; and 33rd as well among the Singapore StrengthsFinder Female respondents.

I am admiring Janice’s artwork titled Shield, an apron made of yarn and linen to illustrate the fusion of ingredients in a century egg congee. 

Janice has Individualisation talent that makes her see the distinctions in people or things even if they are very fine. Just taking colours for example, you can almost see the real rice grains, dark green yolk and shades of green and moldy “eyewhite” in the gelatinous mass that form a myriad of pretty pattern on the apron. 

Together with her other talent themes of Adaptability, Learner, Input and Connectedness, Janice so cleverly put together an exhibition and workshop using the theme of food that sparks conversations among the attendees.

Taking in the information, exhibiting curiosity in learning about people and going with the flow of the conversations are all well exhibited talents aside from her Individualisaton.

People with strong Individualisation talents are intrigued with the unique qualities of others or things. They pay attention to people, their style, motivation, thinking and how each builds relationship. Because they keenly observe such details in people, customisation comes more easily to them. 

I have observed the best corporate gifts being curated by people with Individualisation, they are often impressionable as they stand out. From tailors to underwriters, from marketeers to managers and more, I love how sharp they are at picking up and appreciating uniqueness. 😊

We came from 14 different countries but we have the same agenda in mind – to reflect about the role we play as professionals even as we share the space called earth. 

A big thank you to Jaime Blakeley and Gosia Henderson from Climate Coaching Alliance for kicking off the first part of the 3-part series last evening at Asia Pacific Alliance of Coaches (APAC). Their questions have awakened much reflections among the coaches and attendees. 

The key questions were degree of importance we place on the agenda of climate; the competency we have in dealing with this agenda as professionals; and the readiness for us to take actions.

The attendees explored both the inner aspects (values, purpose, belies and assumptions), and the outer aspects (personal, professional, systemic and world view) of this topic. 

Some interesting output include spending time in nature to heighten the urgency mindset, switching language as an influencer to widen community outreach, the use of systems to drive change and making choices on our lifestyles.

This is a crisis that we all have to face, whether as individuals or coaches - we are on the crossroad to save the future generations with our choices. 

Surely, with one action at a time, we can live the change we want to create.

Time just flies when meeting up with Jes. She has Woo talent, one who brings energy to social setting and derives satisfaction making a connection with someone. 

People with Woo talent are outgoing and build broad social network. 

Woo is ranked 24th among 34 Talent Themes in the Team Frequency of global StrengthsFinder respondents; and ranked 28th among the Singapore StrengthsFinder respondents. 

Woo talent is definitely less frequently found. Yet I have a few family members and close friends with Woo talent. Makes me wonder if there is something about them that draws me towards them or something about me that draws them towards me? :)

Jes gave permission to this post and she said, "Anytime. Anything too :) " This is really "Wooly"!

Leaders play a big part in productive conversations. Yet, communications, engaging staff and dealing with negative emotions continue to be common challenges for leaders today. Stress level is at an all-time high for leaders and employees alike since Covid-19 first struck us. Anger, sadness and worry are some negative emotions observed at the workplace. Aside from the rapid changes and adjustments to measures, how do we deal with these negative emotions within ourselves and our stakeholders? 

Leaders need to take a step back to observe how their Voices and the Voices of their team are impacting their outcomes at work. Left unchecked, such environment will lower engagement drastically, causing a disconnect between what the organisation stands for and what is experienced by their employees and customers. 

This workshop aims to help leaders and teams identify their Voices and the emotions they evoked using the SoundWave® assessment. Leaders can positively influence their teams by identifying how each other speak, what is behind their emotional triggers and how to navigate away from unproductive conversations to create a culture of transformation.

People with the Strengths theme of Individualisation enjoys customisation and appreciates personalised gift.

When my daughter gave me this hand-drawn pressie 2 days ago, I asked her, "What is "Ily,?"
Haha I need to brush up on my abbreviation. 

Ili!♥️

First time using client's giant tablet for training. Cool!

Today, it's identifying their SoundWave 9 Voices and mapping them to StrengthsFinder framework. 

Do you ever wonder why you use certain voices more often than others? What is your motivation when you speak a certain preferred way?

For example, three persons can use Inquire Voice but for different purposes. One for seeking meaning; another for understanding the person infront; and another to get things started.
