Coaching is a calling. Not everyone can coach. In 2013, I was contemplating my journey in life and I decided to take up a coaching program. A few years earlier, I had attended an NLP training and the thought to build an agency I knew I needed to be a coach. However, God had other plans for me, and I ended up in Myanmar from 2014 to 2016. In these 2 years, I coached a few people who were part of the team. Today they are doing very well in their career and in their lifes. In 2018 I decided that I took a refresher in Coaching and did so in 2018.
As the famous Chinese proverb says “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. I decided in 2018 that to be a coach I needed a coach to coach me. I went through a journey of 6 lessons of coaching. This session encouraged me to go futher, beyond my horizons. So I decided to serve in ICF Malaysia. In 2019 I was asked if I wanted to take the role of Organising Chair for the ICF Summit. Being Adventurous and wanting to contribute back, I decided to take the role. Thankfully, the summit was a huge success as I had the guidance of Jeff and Grace. In 2020, as the nation was under many different versions of the Movement Control Order, I actually spend time to enhancing my coaching skills.
For me, this journey has shown me that truly, it is my calling and after the strange and exciting journey to being a coach, I believe I can do more thing in the next 5 years for ICF. Doors are opening to me to learn more about coaching and coaching people. We will be impacting many young lives and entrepreneurs. I realised that I have been coaching many people since I started work and that I have learned the skills of listening and being present so early in my life. My objective is clear, I want to help people transform their lives and overcome challenges. #KitaBantuKita. Join me as we come together and build a bigger, stronger and more united ICF Malaysia!
