"I had heard a good deal about Wai K and how his training program does wonders; after having attended his program, I feel what I had heard was not enough!

My experience has been two pronged; as a participant of the program as well as the training organizer for my company. In both capacities, I have yet to experience a program better than this one. As a participant, aspiring to get certified as a Coach from ICF, I was initially overwhelmed with the amount of content that Wai K had laid out. My apprehension was overload of information and ending up unable to put only a little bit of it in to practice. I was wrong to my relief and disbelief. The curriculum has been designed and was paced in a manner that it allowed participants to sail through it, with right amount of practicing and appropriately scheduled recapitulation exercises.

Not to forget the disciplined fashion that Wai K follows to unroll the concepts, tools and techniques, ensuring inclusion of each participant and encouraging them to contribute & actively participate. Another unique feature of this program is the self-reflection that participants experience while practicing, it has been a journey of self-awareness for me, and I could safely say that for each participant.

As Trainings Head, I absolutely enjoyed working and interacting with Wai K, he is a thorough professional who is laser focused and committed to get future coaches to learn. To me, this is one of the best investments that my company has made in terms of people development, without a doubt. I strongly recommend this Coaching Certification Pragram to all aspiring coaches!"

"The Coaching for Mastery Performance course offered by Wai K has made a big difference to me professionally and personally. Wai K is the best role model imaginable of a person dedicated to helping others learn, grow and to help them fulfill their greatest capacity possible. The course is designed in a way perfectly tailored to my needs: the 8 day program takes us, the beginning coach candidates through a personal journey of discovery, passing carefully placed milestones and checkpoints, where in the end, when you reach your final destination, you are surprised to find that the journey was pleasant and refreshing, not arduous nor exhausting! I have found a new appreciation for the depth of development and self awareness needed to become a fully fledged certified coach, and for the profession of coaching itself, through Wai K's gentle yet persisten and highly skilled t teaching, mentoring and coaching of all of us. Thank you for a great start to a lifelong journey of learning!"

"The entire workshop was a rewarding experience from both the professional and personal perspective for me. As a result of this training I now think completely differently about the whole idea of people needing to have ownership of their own issues rather than us feeling like we have to be solution providers. I have been working the last two years on developing my listening skills because I had an instinct that this is what people want most from us in any conversation, but your coaching session has enabled me to go to a whole new level in all my communications. The workshop has therefore definitely resulted in powerful positive change for me. Already I am finding that I have to check myself way less often than ever before for coming up with an "answer" in my head to address the other person's issue, or feeling like I need to steer things in a certain direction to guarantee that there is a result by the end of the session. So the whole idea of "change happens now" even if it is a baby step for the other person means that our exchange together was valuable is something I always keep in mind. Thanks for the wisdom - and your patience with all of us."

"The CMPC program by far exceeded my expectations. As a psychologist, I have attended many workshops, conferences and continued education programs; this training is of a mastery standard. The coaching process taught in this program has brought me powerful life changing insights, a new awareness of the human psyche and has taken my skills to a higher level.
The training agenda flowed smoothly from one topic to the other with a focus on discussion and input from the participants. The most successful achievement in my opinion was the facilitator's expert ability to create a safe environment for the participants to bond, have fun, share ideas, insights and valuable personal experience which was highly conducive to learning. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in connecting in an authentic manner with fellow human beings, whether professionally or personally."

Wai K, Thank you for the life changing experience, it was indeed a real mindset shift for me, not so many moments in one's life can one truly change one's perspective about things like the Master Coaching training we had with your assistance. The training really unleashed something in me which I never realized I had, the power to change lives through open conversations and for that I am truly grateful.
Your techniques of sharing information have really taught me something new, not so many facilitators can effectively share without a presentation of some sort but still make so much impact. The program has taught me the power of being humble yet powerful in mind and soul. I am really looking forward to this coaching journey of a million miles and it started the day I walked in to your class. I'm more than glad to share any of our coaching moments, hope that will inspire others to take up this challenge.

The CMPC program is an amazing learning experience - FUN and enlightening! Wai K Leong masterfully coaches the class in the discipline and art of coaching. Never a dull moment - poignant short films, games, energizer breaks, spirited discussions, mindful reflection peppered with light moments, buddy coaching sessions - all draw hidden wisdom and awareness from within each participant. The camaraderie in class is testament to Wai K's inimitable skills in fostering trust and rapport, creating a safe environment for skills building. Best program I have attended in a long while! And the post-program support and alumni community are a big PLUS. Highly recommended for all aspiring coaches!

Whether you are a successful corporate manager looking at using coaching as a springboard to get more from your associates willingly, or someone looking at pursuing coaching as a career, this program will more than meet your needs and expectation - no matter how high, as it did with mine. Using an inside out, highly hands-on and experiential learning methodology, Coach Extraordinaire, Wai K, has successful "educed" the best in me and made them blossom - something which only the very best coaches can do. Through walking the talk and being a coach, Wai K helped me to achieve an early breakthrough and installed some of most critical mindset and skill set required for success in coaching.. The program was a great SUCCESS - an acronym for Simple, Unexpected, Concrete, Caring, Emotional and Satisfying. I recommend it without hesitation to anyone who wants to really master the science and art of coaching."
