My Journey into Coaching, My Pledge to You

16 January 2021

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”

Oprah Winfrey

My journey into coaching started with an intention to sharpen the skills of my HR team back in 2010. As the HR director of the company at that time, I felt strongly that the future of high performing companies is not about managing performance; rather it would be more important to empower leaders to meaningfully engage their team members. I found coaching to be an important skill to achieve that.

The more I develop my coaching skills, the more I discovered myself. Many of the discoveries arose from the process of coaching others. In 2014, while I had gotten a lot out of my career, I began feeling like I needed something more meaningful to wake me up in the morning. Although, my professional life was very rewarding, I realised there was more in life that I sought and that I needed to step out of my comfort zone in order for change to take place. With that, I quit my job and started to pursue a new path in professional coaching. That was the beginning of my exploration in life. As I took the courage to step forward and respond with an open heart to every life event, life has presented me with remarkable teachers and events for me to continue my journey. As I continue to say “yes” to life, I discovered more and more about how to flow with life.

You will not be able to solve anything outside until you own how the situation affects you inside.”

Michael A. Singer

Coaching has led me to learn meditation, and I have been practicing meditation since 2015. Meditation opens the doorway that helps me manage my emotions, gain clarity and create a desired path that flows with life. Today, I am a true believer of inner work. Having gone through some significant life-changing experiences, I discovered that the real strength comes from within, and coaching helps me to connect with myself as I develop greater awareness about the choices in my life. 

Being true to my own passion has led me on a purposeful journey in life, and a trip to Egypt in 2019 has intensified my self-mastery process. Since becoming an ICF member in 2014, I’ve  deepened my understanding and presence as a coach. In my role as the president of ICF Malaysia, the path is leading me from mastery to unity, and I am motivated to unite all of us for the greater good of ICF Malaysia, be it through learning programs that deepen our passion for coaching or get-togethers that allow us to build one another up in order that we may rightly represent ICF in Malaysia with the highest quality of professional coaching and realize ICF’s vision to have coaching as an integral part of a thriving society.
