Sean discovered his interest in understanding and helping others at a young age. He likes offering a listening ear and is the go-to person for his friends, which led him to decide at age 14 to pursue a degree in psychology later on in life.
Sean’s pursuits and achievements today are by no means a result of his efforts alone. As a teen and young adult, Sean struggled with weight issues, academics, and sensitive skin issues which would have posed a challenge for his pursuits today as a confident fitness instructor on stage and his degree and career. With the help of beautiful angels in his life who appeared as family members, friends, teachers, personal trainer, doctor, mentor instructors and supervisors and who showed him what he thought was impossible, Sean became who he is today. Aspiring to be like these angels in his life, he hopes to be the kind of person who could help others see their strengths and potential in themselves and journey alongside them to achieve their version of a fulfilling life. A chanced experience as a client in Collective Change Institute’s Coaching for Change programme in 2017 brought Sean to this coaching certification programme, and he saw opportunity to expand his repertoire of skills to coach and develop others.
Apart from coaching and keeping up with his trainings at the gym, Sean takes joy in reading personal development books in his leisure time. Some of his favourites include Tara Mohr’s “Playing Big”, Darren Hardy’s “The Compound Effect”, and Dale Carnegie’s “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living”.
Sean believes in tuning in to his clients. Like how he approaches his mind-body classes, he believes in “feeling the feel” of the flow when connecting with his clients. Coupled with his strong “sensing” and “systematic” traits, Sean has been able to forward clients in distilling insights and crystalising action plans to achieve their goals.
Sean strongly believes in personal development and that there are deep wells of potential within each and everyone of us. With a little more self-awareness from both internal (introspection and reflection) and external (feedback, coaching) sources, coupled with grit to achieve our goals, we can be better than who we are yesterday, one step at a time.
