Behind Strengths Compass
I am very blessed to have been exposed to various psychometrics tools and leadership trainings during my corporate days. So naturally I am familiar with profiling models like the DISC and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). While there are valid findings, they are broad-based or rather I was not as convinced until I chanced upon Gallup CliftonStrengths
I was blown away by the accuracy of my Strengths profile. When I discovered that my No. 1 strength is having that deep sense of “Connectedness”, it spoke to me. I had that “a-ha” moment. Intuitively, I have always known to have a knack of being able to connect and relate to people around my sphere; being attuned to one’s emotions and being able to connect the dots to situations.
As I gain deeper insights on my other dominant strengths - Ideation, Maximiser, Empathy and Input; they further validate the values and motivations that mattes to me. I was falling in love with myself again. Beyond that 15-page analysis, it provided me a new lens to reflect on my inner compass.
I want to spend more time on the Big Rocks in my life instead of being caught in everyday busy-ness. I want to stop trying to fit in with the corporate shenanigans, but to empower and be empowered to do what I am passionate about. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy my career as a marketing communications practitioner, but I wanted something more; something more grounded where I can be of value to people and the community I serve!
I found my passion in Strengths coaching.
With this epiphany, I reset my very own self-compass. I decided to set my own path; a path that allows me to leave small footprints in people’s lives; just as I have been inspired and blessed to be mentored by great leaders, good people, family, friends and strangers included.
I want to pay it forward.
My adventure on Strengths Compass, hence, began; to be a guiding beacon to individuals who are on an exploratory journey of discovering their potential and living out their strengths as they navigate different chapters of their life.
I hope my journey of sharing can inspire You.
More than a coach,
I'm your cheerleader!
"A certified Gallup Strengths coach, I have had the pleasure of working with many individuals to help them break out of the “I am not good enough” box; where they learned to love themselves more through discovering and acknowledging their awesome self."
