Transform Your Organisation

"The biggest motivation for me to take up the ILM Level 5 Diploma in Effective Coaching and Mentoring is my colleagues in my organization. Many younger workers are willing to know how to conduct mentoring sessions and they are also willing to hear it in Japanese. So I hope I can provide to them what I have learned and experienced throughout the year. Of course, I'm the one who needs to keep up with continuous learning. Sharing with my colleagues would probably make me a better mentor as well. So I'm looking forward to it as I have completed the course. Thank you."

Momoko A., Japan

"Because of this course, I have the opportunity to coach. Most of my clients are my younger colleagues. I am very happy when I see growth in them, and that gives me a lot of satisfaction despite all the assignments and other things that we need to do. But the assignments, reading, and discussions really help me learn. Of course, the practical part helps too. Putting everything into practice is a learning point for me. I really appreciate this course. So, thank you so much, especially to Yong Guang and Horng Yuan, who have been very patient with us and helping us understand. Thank you."

Wan Ling, Malaysia

A Life Changing Experience 

"This course has really helped some of my students and colleagues whom I coached and mentored as part of the course requirement. At first, they did not think it would be helpful to them - they thought their participation would only help Steve complete the course. But when they completed their coaching period, they were surprised that these sessions could really help them in things that had been very difficult for them for many years, which they could now overcome, improve, and change." 

Steve L., Macau/Singapore

"Over this one year, I learned so much, especially from the lectures. As I think back this one whole year, what I learned the most is about myself and the SWOT analysis you did with me was really a gem for me. It was an opportunity for me to know myself better. The feedback was really good - to see who I am, where my strength is, where I need to pay attention to, and more so to be comfortable with who I am."

David H., Malaysia
