As we welcome on board our new VP Membership, here's a quick introduction of Linda Sim :-

Linda Sim - VP Membership

One of my favourite quotes, by Lao Tzu, ancient Chinese philosopher & writer, is…

‘Knowing others is wisdom. Knowing yourself is enlightenment’.

The reason I love this quote so much is that it helps to form the foundation of my coaching relationships. I believe that having self-awareness is the key to living the life you want, achieving the goals you set, and creating the relationships required to get there.

Born and brought up in Hong Kong, I have 24 years’ experience in coaching, training and facilitating across Sales & Marketing, eCommerce and Loyalty on 4 continents, encompassing a 20-year corporate career with Cathay Pacific, and overseeing their loyalty programme and membership.

I have always had a love for my customers and a strong desire to help them achieve what’s important and makes them happy. With this in mind, and working closely with the HKICC family, I hope to contribute towards what you need, want and value in the membership space. All ideas are appreciated, so please feel free to share with us! Together let’s STRIVE forward...

Strive
Trust
Respect
Insights
Value
Evolve

It’s a pleasure to be part of the HKICC team, and I am grateful for the opportunity of collaborating with you all, and look forward to serving you as best I can.

Our first Coach Development Program in 2020










A full house at HKICC’s first Coach Development Program in 2020! Thank you Coach  Katerina Kirillova-Stanley’s insightful sharing on Metaphorical Associative card (MAC), a tool which has been adopted by psychotherapists to work within coachees’ emotional, mental and physical spheres creating a free, secure and non judgemental environment.
Participants got to understand the theoretical foundation of MAC and were given practical algorithms of the cards for their self transformation.
Also welcome our 5 new members!
        

It was a great kick off event for #hkicc on Jan 16 with 21 coaches actively participated. Applying the magic of  Metaphorical associative cards, coaches found the coaching sessions more fruitfully deep diving to reflect inner voice of clients thoughts. The theme of self managing at the beginning of the year trigger coaches to empower themselves for new beliefs and actions. 
Coming on Feb 22 will be learning to  disrupt ourselves and March 19 embracing self care.
Please come and join us. Don't miss the chance to transform to where you want to be.

Coaching Will Overtake Consulting

It might take the full 10 years, but coaching will begin to rise in popularity over consulting. Aging demographics will demand a vast transfer of institutional, industry and professional wisdom. Consulting augments gaps in knowledge, but coaching emphasizes the transfer of wisdom. Smart young leaders will seek to learn, as talent becomes harder to "rent." - Jim Vaselopulos, Rafti Advisors, Inc.

Rise Of The Automated Coach

They say, in real estate, success is based on location, location, location. Well, in coaching, we will be saying technology, technology, technology. Coaches will differentiate themselves in the future by connecting through platforms and being able to meet almost anywhere and anytime regardless of their physical location. Coaches will engage clients through micro-learning sessions, gamification and will add value by providing clients access to content beyond their counsel. - Brad Federman, F&H Solutions Group

There may be more automation or a stronger focus on mental status or the psychology aspect of your career.

Interim President's Message April 2019



Dear members and friends,

I cannot believe it’s already April and the second quarter of 2019. We at HKICC has been taking on the challenges of creating a more relevant and sustainable community for you. I am happy to report that we have made encouraging progress and anticipating lots more to come.

 As President who serves the International Coaching Community in Hong Kong, I feel very strongly about the importance of having a strong and supportive community, as I and my fellow coaches would agree, that we would not be where we are without the support of each other, learning and having fun together, and most importantly the help we get when we face challenges, picking us up to do better all over again.
That’s why we started hosting the Coaches’ Roundtable in February this year for both experienced and novice coaches to share wisdom on a different coaching topic. We have also initiated a Coaching Lab from late March for new Cantonese speaking coaches to support them in their coaching journey. Last but not least, the very popular Let it Shine Series has been enhanced and will be brought back in May this year for those who have learned coaching skills and are looking to learn how to start their coaching careers and businesses.
There’s more:

  • The First HKICC Coaching Symposium “Deep Immersion into the Sea of Coaching” which will take place on April 27, 2019, will bring three wonderful speakers to share with you their coaching specialties.  This will take the place of both the monthly Coach Development for the month and the Spring party we announced earlier. Please see our separate email for details. We are looking for a number of volunteers to help us lead this event better so please contact Selina Wong at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We welcome and appreciate your participation. 
  • Riding on the success of our first Outreach programme for 2019, Stanley Chiu, VP of Public Relations, has secured a very worthwhile pro-bono coaching programme with the Golden Bauhinia Women Entrepreneur Association (GBWEA), coaching their members who mentor underprivileged female university students. We have just met for orientation on April 3. 
  • To better understand your needs so we may serve you better, we will be sending you a survey soliciting your input. Please look out for it and be generous with your suggestions. 
  • The HKICC Annual General Meeting (AGM) is scheduled for May 2019 and we are very excited about the special speaker we have invited. More details will be available soon. 
  • Further ahead, we are thrilled to be joining forces with the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) and the International Association of Coaching (IAC) in late October to bring you a facilitated dialogue regarding the future of learning and development including coaching.

Now a call for help: to effectively execute these activities, we need more hands than the board members and VPs who work tirelessly to build this community for you. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you can spare your time to help build the coaching community:

  • project volunteers for the symposium on April 27 (Sat)
  • membership liaison
  • social media and engagement
  • project management

Please join us in putting our initiatives to work for you, our members and community, learning and growing together.
 
Starting from this president message we would also like to showcase one of our board members or VPs every time. Our first feature will be on Elsa Tang, our Treasurer and much more:

5 steps that make Executive Coaching a performance tool (and not a luxury item)!

A recent conversation with a friend and senior HR leader brought me face to face with the (mis)perception of executive coaching. The upshot of the discussion was that Coaching doesn't fit in when the organisation is in the rough and tumble of business, trying to keep wheels turning. That coaching is like a reward, something that's done when the hard work is over and it’s time to kick back, relax and smell the roses!

This conversation took me back to a time not too long ago when I was part of a team tasked with diagnosing a business decline. To cut a long story short, the results of an otherwise healthy business unit had nose-dived and the debris told a story of CEOs inability to hold their team accountable and manage poor performance. This was surprising as much as it was disturbing. The appointment was part of an intricate succession plan and the person was known for their sharp intellect, business acumen and change skills.

The incident rang a number of alarm bells. Was our talent identification flawed? Are we looking at the right behaviours and in the right places for our leaders? What could we have done differently? More importantly, what can we do for this not to recur? The one that caught our eyes was a deep-seated belief that senior executive appointees were ready now and ‘fully developed’ for what they are stepping into. That they will learn on the job whatever 'soft' stuff the role threw at them. That 'development' was about preparing for future roles than enhancing performance in current ones.
