Praise for Pei Shan

Testimonials championing Pei Shan

“I started coaching with Pei Shan because I wanted to improve my listening skills, to know myself deeper and better.”

“Coaching with Pei Shan is so wonderful and so natural!”

“I realise that we can be expert in some areas, but not all, and this is why and how coaching is so effective. You know, when I reached higher managerial positions in my career, I tend to pay less attention to others’ thoughts and feelings, and just focus on getting things done. With Pei Shan coaching me, I am not only a better manager, a better leader. I’m also a better father. Not only do I focus on getting results, I also focus on the inner strengths of my team, my partners and my clients. I listen more and think about how my people think. This translates into a more organised and efficient use and control of time.”

“Pei Shan has a Zen way, a genuine, natural way of coaching me. We are “dancing” together – dancing into insights during coaching. She genuinely helps me and flows with me; listening, identifying and supporting my needs. This leads to me coming up with solutions so naturally and so effectively. There is immense value in Pei Shan’s coaching. I really enjoy coaching, very much!”

“After coaching with Pei Shan, I see a transformation in myself. I lend people a listening ear, I listen more, especially with my wife and children. We have more family togetherness now. Now I don’t tell them what to do. I ask them questions and listen to them quietly. My children now comes to me, and I listen quietly to their problems. They get their answers from within, with my quiet listening, and my wife is happier with the changes she sees in me.”

“I like Pei Shan’s coaching style. Four things I like about Pei Shan’s coaching style:”

“1. She is very visual and talented in the colourful world of mindmapping, always bringing me back to “Where am I now?” As a business leader, I like to push forward for results, and rush the process of understanding my current situations. I realised that this is an important process for knowing my current situations prepares me to assess my future results and impacts on my projects.”

“2. With her background in Psychology, she is very sensitive to feelings, my feelings. She is adept at detecting small and important things, and great at listening into my insights.”

“3. Pei Shan is very positive about life and focuses on positive changes. She is very resourceful, and challenges me to think beyond what’s required. For example, instead of looking for three reasons, she looks for 50 reasons! Pei Shan is very good at stretching [challenging my thinking]!”

“4. Although I don’t see you in person as coaching is done over the phone, I feel you are a very resourceful and dynamic person. Having been coached by other coaches, Pei Shan has a more interesting and fun way of coaching. Not so structured, not so rigid, it is fluid and flexible. Pei Shan coaches me in a “light” conversation filled with energy, and yet it’s so relaxed.”

“Wonderful, Pei Shan! As she has shared with me before regarding her aspiration to be the best Happiness Coach, indeed, definitely, ‘Wow, I want Shan!’ Thank you so much, for the wonderful coaching that you have done with me.”

John Lee Chong Ming, Serangoon Gardens, Singapore, Father of three, JL Consulting, Director

“The coaching experience and support has far exceeded my expectations and has brought valuable benefits and strategies both professionally and personally. The coaching sessions have been very powerful in providing different perspectives to effective management, solutioning and time management and have given a structured discipline and techniques to dealing with these areas.”

“One of the most valuable benefits I got from being coached by Pei Shan was to constantly monitor the development of my goals and therefore stay highly focused and determined to achieve them. Pei Shan is able to create breakthroughs in areas that seem stagnant. I had a communication concept which I created, designed and implemented within 10 weeks. Without coaching, I would have taken about 5 MONTHS or forever to do it! My managers are extremely pleased, and I have been recently promoted as well!”

“Pei Shan’s ability to create new ways of thinking causes positive shifts in mindsets and behaviours. This is critical to achieving success. Thank you. Thank you very much, Pei Shan!”

Tanja Moro-Faessler, Head of Recruitment, UBS, Italy

“When you came into my life, I felt connected with you and this is the first time in my life I have ever experienced this. The conversations that we had, engages both of our minds and the content revolves around our life views, belief systems and the way each of us handle challenges or situations in life. Talking to you allows me to know more about myself and helps me to discover the reasons for my actions or decisions. It is as if I’m talking to myself.”

“You have a knack of summarising all my expressions in a short, clear and concise manner which causes me to shout:” Yes! This is what I’m talking about!” I felt that I’m talking to someone who knows who I am and you are a person whom I can trust. Before I attended your coaching, I felt lousy, lethargic and low in energy. I wanted to breakthrough my current challenges but I just did not know what to do.”

“When you coached me, you asked questions that made me think a lot deeper, going into the heart of the problem and allowing me to discover the answers for myself. After which, I feel a surge of energy throughout my entire body and am all ready to go! I needed a breakthrough and you managed to unlock it with just a twist of your wrist.”

“A few things I learnt from you:

– Using my heart to build relationships rather than just logic alone.

– Being open about it because there is nothing to hide, and

– Not holding back your feelings.”

“You have touched my life and I’m sure you will go on and touch the lives of many others. You will definitely be the Best Happiness Coach in Singapore!”

“May you continue to follow where your heart goes. Continue to Shine, Shan…”

“Shan, thank you. Before I started Coaching, I felt uncertain and apprehensive. I was facing, and I believe many others, the challenge of time in handling things. That is, we are limited by time and we have so many things to do. During Coaching, I feel excited and yet calm. I really saw the value of Coaching with your focus on my goals, and I also hear more about myself.”

“Shan, you are helpful in guiding me, approachable, and open. Open in hearing my dreams and goals. I really liked your counter-proposing, for example, ‘May I suggest this?’ Your counter-proposing comes at the right time! I also loved your stretching [challenging] me. I have been stretched very, very far since my recent Experiential Learning programme, and I still find that stretching is something very valuable, and very new to most people. You also developed great rapport with me in the session!”

“I felt really great, clear and light-hearted after our Coaching! You really established rapport, listened actively to me, and so approachable! Shan, thank you.”

Lim Hock Ming, Civil Servant, Teaching line, DMG Toastmasters, President, Eastern Singapore

“Before coaching with Shan, I always thought that coaching was teaching or training, something like what a sports coach does or a teacher or trainer. I also knew that coaching was to help a person to achieve his/her potential.”

“During the session with Shan, I found out that coaching is not teaching or training, in fact, it is a systematic and structured approach of understanding a person through questioning, what I call as ‘mining’ for information. Coaching is also not about advising or giving you solutions, in fact, the solutions were all created by me guided by Pei Shan’s accurate and timely questioning. I feel really good and happy with the goals that I set because these goals are ‘all me’, and not some one else’s. I also feel that goal-setting is important to set the direction to realise the potential you have. Goal-setting is like a shooting without a target. You can aim anywhere and shoot everything except the target/goal.”

“I really liked Shan’s positive, patient and composed coaching style. She also brings her fun-loving and Shanshine personality into the conversation! I really appreciated her effective listening skills which gave me the time to think, and her sharp questioning skills which challenged me to organise my thinking into concrete actions. All in all, coaching with Shan has been an enjoyable and enriching experience! Thank you for the clarity, Shan! Keep shining!”

Danny Leong, Married, Teacher, Singapore

“I feel really inspired by Pei Shan’s words, youthfulness and fun-loving spirit! Before our coaching session, I felt very stressed and tired. However, when I am coached by her, I feel more energetic and less stressed. Pei Shan can make me sit straight up on my sofa when I am lying down to rest! Pei Shan really grabs my attention, and makes me feel so fun and happy. I feel that I can do anything with Pei Shan as my coach! I love her positive style of challenging me to achieve more than I ever expect I can! Thank you Pei Shan, my happiness coach!”

Pei Shan is a great listener. Thank you for your sharing. I am a thinker, and consider all angles of things. However, your questioning gets my thinking fired up, making my thinking really precise! Your questions make me think deeper than I normally do. Thank you!”

“Pei Shan recognises the need to give the right amount of time and space to allow me to come up with the best possible strategies. Pei Shan employs the power of silence expertly and she really stretches me to take my actions beyond my normal limits! She is attentive, engaging and makes me feel very comfortable. Thank you Pei Shan!”

“Shan, your words are indeed a moral booster! There is structure to your coaching and I feel committed to my goal. I feel empowered after your coaching, and everyone should have a coach on top of their fitness trainer to lose 8 kilos! You asked questions that I really needed, flushing out what’s really on my mind. You also lead well and logically without missing a point! Shan, I really appreciated your delicate approach in making sure that my feelings were not hurt. I loved especially the positive spin you suggested in looking beautiful towards my husband! Very good coaching, right questions, excellent, Shan! Thank you very much!”

“I visited Money Mastery Toastmasters Club last night as a language evaluator and surprisingly met new friends and more new friends. Amongst the new friends I’ve made, there is a special girl who gave a speech on positive psychology that caught my attention. Young, enthusiastic, bubbling with so much positive energy, you will never be able to escape the “shanshine” that glitters all over. I’m swooned. Literally.
