Awaken Your Inner Warrior

Updated: Jun 17, 2020

5 years ago, I finally called bullsh*t on myself. My life was fantastic but there was this nagging uncomfortable feeling - there’s something bigger I’m meant to do. It refused to go away. 

Recently, I’ve been revisiting this moment. I see that 39-year-old Roger embarking on a journey to answer those big questions. He read books. He did the training. But that nagging feeling didn’t go away for him. It didn’t cut the mustard. Something changed when he attended the coaching certification course (another training!). As part of the training, trainees had to practise taking turns to be a coach and coachee. It forced him to look within. Something shifted. He started seeing light. 


My good friend Sean* engaged us as a coach when he was transitioning from an individual contributor role to managing the P&L for a multi-million dollar business and a large team. This was a B-HAG (big hairy audacious goal), and Sean wanted to push himself out of his comfort zone. He shares: “I had my coaching on Saturdays, rested on Sundays, and hit the office Monday mornings with a mission and absolute clarity of what needed to be accomplished that week.”

In our survey polling mid- to senior-level executives in Singapore, 70% of respondents said they regularly feel a sense of purpose at work, yet 90% said they feel they would be happier in their career if they were allowed to act more purposefully.

Even coaches need coaches. It’s been 4 years, peeling back the layers of the onion. To arrive at this present moment. It’s like I’ve gone one full circle and come back to the beginning and recognising it as home for the first time.
