We Help People Be The Best They Can Be

Isaac Ong, VP Business Development Asia

A One-On-One with Isaac

When did you discover your passion for helping people through business?

My expertise in helping people to be at their best happened in 2000 when I was asked to train several groups of students in multimedia computing at the lower primary level. Through that opportunity I discovered the knack for transformation change and since applied this expertise to students and working professionals in all sectors; coaching, facilitating and training for more than 18 years to several thousands of participants.

As well as 18 years of experience, do you have any academic qualifications?

From 2004 to 2009, I realised my teaching dream and enjoyed myself tremendously at the school of ICT, Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Furthering this training transformation experience, I harness, shape and ground the knowledge and theories of instruction, high-performance leadership coaching with postgraduate studies at NIE (2004), NTU (2009), IAL (2017) and RP (2019). The certification in ACTA allows me to appreciate and apply my delivery effectively in competency-based programmes. In addition to training and facilitation of workshops, I design, develop and curate lesson materials; I am also an Agile Implementation, Scrum and Design Thinking practitioner.

What other coaching have you carried out?

In 2011, I reignited my passion for teaching and supervisory work as an adjunct faculty, practising life-skills coaching and transformation leadership mindset for young working adults at the Singapore University of Social Sciences. I actively apply design-thinking, purposeful storytelling. In 2012, I started HR practice in learning & organization development; and is a qualified high-performance culture facilitator and coach. I have over 10 years of working experience in large corporations; my career coaching experience spans over 5 years and as an Emergenetics Certified Associate/Coach; certified in using the powerful brain-based personality profiling tool.

What actions do resilient teams take that makes them resilient?

I asked Ian Travers TiB Group CEO about the behaviour he has noticed in resilient teams. Ian: A resilient team will take a moment to reflect on good news. They will naturally ask what's gone well, this week? Less resilient teams will list the problems and reasons why they cannot do tasks. Non resilient teams tend to bask in negativity. That is the fundamental difference. It’s a difference in belief. A resilient team believes they can do something to move forward, while a non-resilient team doesn't believe they can achieve anything diferent. The fundamental [...]

A Mission statement, a vision statement and the values of they uphold.I recently wrote about uncertainty and how people crave certainty. In order to build resilience, we need to create adaptability to an ever-changing world. When an organisation has a strong set of values these will not change. They give certainty. In the course of my work I’ve visited hundreds of organisations. There are some that stand out as brilliant places to work. They are also excellent in terms of [...]
