Chief Coach & Founder
Lifecycle Pte. Ltd. (Singapore)
I am an OD (Organization Development) professional and executive coach focused on helping people and teams perform in complex and uncertain environments. My facilities are OD, Lean, Agile (Scrum) and Design Thinking.
- I coach, train, facilitate learning of essential KSA (knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes, aptitudes) to professionals for performing in complex and uncertain environments.
- I design and deliver Organization Development programs with Design Thinking and Agile Scrum.
- I am a Coherence and Performance Coach for teams and leaders.
I typically deliver my work in the forms of workshops, coaching for Scrum teams, Design Thinking sessions and Scrum Sprint pilots for strategic projects, and one-on-one executive coaching. Learning by doing (experiential learning) is the basis of my teaching, and I use a lot of games and exercises in my workshops – Liberating Structures and Lego are my favorite.
My clients tend to be multinationals and regional large corporates, but I love working with SMEs and startup teams too. I conduct workshops and lectures at my alma mater INSEAD’s executive program, and I do a lot of work supporting corporate leaders and change agents on organizational change and digital transformation efforts.
I am also frequently involved in innovation programs between financial institutions and fintech startups, since I come from that background (25+ years combined banking and startup entrepreneurship experience).
At heart, I am a serial entrepreneur, and I concurrently manage a small portfolio of startup projects.
