Having both intrapreneur and entrepreneur most of my career, I know it personally that this can be a very lonely, stressful and trying journey. It is lonely because you are charging ahead but not everyone can quite follow close enough. The loved ones of entrepreneurs often wonder what exactly are we up to. The truth is, we don't have the exact answer too!
Loneliness amplifies challenges and heightens the stress. On top of that, when your vision, mission and actions aren't aligned or clear, we start chasing our own tails, getting ourselves confused and overwhelmed. What started as a meaning endeavour soon becomes dreary and impossible.
It is therefore my hope and passion to be able to provide as much support as possible, making entrepreneurship (or intrapreneurship) less lonely and more meaningful.
Our typical clients are the
- SME owners
Our mission is to help our clients clarify thoughts, options and move them towards the breakthrough they needed in their personal and professional lives.
As a coach:
I am often seen as a mentor because my clients look to me to hold them responsible. But as a person, I am also a work-in-progress, striving to develop myself into a better person like everyone else. There is a say, the doctor cannot operate on themselves, and this describes us. So yes, it is not a secret that coaches turn to fellow coaches for our development too :)
I care a lot about my clients. Besides being paid, the role itself has its responsibility. I see myself as a sherpa, my mission is to help my clients confront themselves, be released from their limitations and do what is necessary to achieve their goals. "Be Unapologetic" is how I hope my clients could live their lives.
As much as I am grounded in psychological research and methodologies, my approach is simple - I hold up a mirror to my clients' frame of reference, and get curious on behalf of my clients for their optimum development.
Coaching with me is like getting a deep tissue massage - I ask direct questions, play "what-ifs" and I am unbashful about the bull**** I detect from you. I offer honest observations and feedback on what I see, hear and how I am experiencing you, so that you can use me as a data point to review your decisions and actions.
Also a learning and development specialist, I design programs that equip you with the competencies you need. Together, we overcome fears, doubts, saboteurs and build strategies towards your success.
You can expect me to be someone you can be open with and be challenged by. I am a sounding board, a critical friend and a cheerleader. Someone who can help you plan to learn and improve, to try out tactics and to hold you accountable.
A Network of Coaches:
I am not the only coach for IOResources. We work with a network of coaches around the world, catering to the different nature and preferences of clients.

I would love to hear from you.
