I was awarded the Public Service Commission scholarship in 1989 and am the founder of Kingmaker Consultancy, Kingmaker Leadership Institute and StrengthsTransform. I am one of the first two Gallup-certified Strengths Coaches (Platinum) in the Asia-Pacific region and also one of the world’s pioneering coaches for Gallup’s Builder Profile 10. I am Asia's pioneer in integrating CliftonStrengths into my Solution Focused coaching.
In the past 4 years, I have brought the Strengths movement to more than 10000 students and educators in Singapore. I also spearheaded the 1st ASEAN Strengths Education Summit 2016 and is presently impacting the educators & students from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and China.
I built my leadership foundation as an officer in the Boys’ Brigade. Between 2002 to 2006, as a chaplain, I catalysed the birth of more than 10 Boys' & Girls' Brigade companies in Singapore. I also conducted leadership development for more than 3000 university scholars between 2003 to 2009, specialising in cultural transformation on university campuses.
I am especially passionate about using strengths to train leaders & build teams for peak performance. I consult extensively with school & business leaders to establish initiatives & structures to develop potential. I also pioneer strengths-intervention programmes for Parent-Teens & married couples.
My StrengthsFinder® talent themes (Command | Relator | Strategic | Activator | Futuristic | Maximizer | Significance) have empowered me to lead several large-scale crisis relief efforts for non-profit organisations. I led teams of adult & youth volunteers during the SARS crisis (2003, National University of Singapore), Tsunami crisis (2005, Meulaboh, Aceh) & Sichuan Earthquake (2008).
My wife Yvonne is a very nurturing mother through her StrengthsFinder® talent themes (Harmony | Restorative | Empathy | Consistency | Adaptability).
My eldest son Yew Ann is 6 years old and is exhibiting Input theme as he readily absorbed and recalled every public bus number and the respective destinations.
My youngest son Tze Yu is a cheeky 3 years old who loves to explore food.
StrengthsTransform is birthed out from my Strategic, Futuristic, Maximizer and Significance talent themes. It is a talent development platform to empower the human capital in the fastest way, with the greatest impact and towards a more hopeful society; a mission worth dying for.
Kingmaker is birthed out from my Strategic, Futuristic, Significance and Responsibility talent themes. I wanted to dedicate my next few years to shape the values & culture among the next generation leaders, the youths, with great insight into their lives and their surrounding.
