Experience Coaching Webinar
On a sunny Saturday 30th October hailed the last of the popular 3-part series of "Experience Coaching" sessions for NUSBSA members. The event is jointly organized by the NUS Business School Alumni (NUSBSA) and the Singapore chapter of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) to expose NUSBSA members to professional coaching and their benefits.
The morning started with a warm welcome by Ms. Gracelyn Ho, Chairperson of NUSBSA Career Panel Advisory and Ms Catherine Chai, Vice President of NUSBSA. This was followed by Ms. Amily Ang, Director of Partnerships of ICF Singapore, who shared the differences between coaching, mentoring, counselling, and training and how coaching can inspire individuals to maximize their potential in the short and long run.
The participants then broke out into a 45 minutes of 1-on -1 coaching sessions with their pre-matched, accredited ICF coaches. Participants were enthused that the sessions were 'thought provoking', 'highlighted many blind spots', 'made sense of the chaos' and went 'beyond the solutions'. The networking sessions that followed were fully attended, and there was great reluctance in the virtual room when it was time to say 'adieu’.
It was not surprising that the post-event feedback by attendees was mostly ranked 9-10 out of 10, and many are looking forward to a longer duration for the 2022 Series, starting in March 2022!
