John subscribes to Gallup’s CliftonStrengths (formerly known as Clifton StrengthsFinder), a strengths-based approach, in his coaching. His top strength as a “Maximizer” is played out in the way he coaches others – by empowering senior leaders through executive/leadership coaching and training. He is passionate about enabling them to unlock their full potential and live a purposeful life from inside out, transforming something strong into something superb.
One of his clients, the CEO of Genee (an IT company in Tianjin, China) said, "As an entrepreneur and CEO, I face many challenges and problems every day... Through the series of coaching sessions, John helped me sort out my thoughts and ideas in a clear and organised manner. John's patience and expertise also aided me in finding effective ways to solve problems. These handles helped me be more methodical and thoughtful in training my staff."
A seasoned trainer and coach who is proficient in both English and Chinese, John derives immense fulfilment in facilitating others to unlock their potential and live a purposeful life.
