Growthbeans Coaching Series

Description

WHY COACHING

Regardless of our age, roles and responsibilities, one of the key elements for our growth, well-being and personal success is to have an objective sounding board to help us gain more awareness and clarity of our lives and current situation. This is different from seeking advice from a friend or a mentor because the key to unlock our potential lies within us and not purely based on external advice. The Growthbeans coaching series is created to enable you to increase your personal awareness to gain clarity and overcome challenges faced in life. We make coaching accessible to you. Join us to experience coaching.

In this session, we will review the benefits of coaching and its relevance in the future of work. We will also go through some key elements of coaching, understand what it is and and what it is not, and have the opportunity to experience coaching. 

Participants coming for the session will be paired with a coach for individualised coaching, based on first-come first serve basis.

Particpants who have experienced coaching before will be given lower priority so as to give more youths a chance.
