Developing Women Leaders
Coaching-based solutions will help your women develop what they need for success
Ming delights in partnering with individuals to support them in achieving their fullest potential, irrespective of their background. As a coach, she believes deeply in human agency and derives joy in seeing her clients thrive in their professional and personal lives. She has spent a lot of time exploring the best western and eastern traditions about human excellence, and adopts many of her learnings in her coaching practice. Growing up in Singapore and educated in the west, she is comfortable in diverse cultural milieus, and coaches in English and Mandarin.
Before becoming a professional coach, Ming had nearly two decades of international corporate HR experience in talent development, diversity & inclusion, learning & development and competence management. She worked in Singapore, UK, Netherlands, China and Malaysia for Shell International in commercial, operational and leadership roles, and adopts a global and strategic perspective.
In the interest of giving back, she worked for her alma mater Oxford University to launch a mentoring & coaching programme for graduating students, and was part of its inaugural Race Equality Task Force to embed DEI best practices.Get in touch
Clients describe Ming’s coaching style as intuitive, inspiring and direct. She is always respectful of their needs and vulnerabilities, while supporting them to gain clarity about their complex thought processes. There is extra focus on expanding the clients’ resourceful state, reframing perspectives and encouraging clients to take concrete action steps which are aligned with their strengths, values and vision, while viewing themselves as part of a wider ecosystem of relationships. Where necessary, we investigate their mental saboteurs and self-limiting beliefs, and devise strategies to transcend those obstacles.
“Clients love how I am intuitively drawn to their profound inner resilience as a solution-focused coach. I excel in making them aware of their multiple talents and tapping into their flow states, while gently challenging them to reach deep into their transformational potential.”
My clients come from Europe, Asia, Middle East and North America. They have wide-ranging professional backgrounds working in corporate multinationals, government/public sector, charities, NGOs, startups or are entrepreneurs.
"The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions."Head of Legal, International Property Group
