Invited as a keynote speaker for MGS Careers Festival 2017 #StrengthsFinder

The last time I was in MGS was in Sec 2 when 4 of us from ACS Prefectorial Board went over to MGS for their Prefect's Investiture. If I recall correctly, there were elements of a camp fire, guitar and there might have been the song 'Stand by Me' that we sang

Shared wth the girls about finding their talents and how that can bring them closer to their life's calling. Great that they were able to come up with their own examples when it came to searching for clues to their innate talents

All the best to the entire Sec 4 cohort in one of the most stressful times in a Singapore student's life. You are more than your grades!

And to the class won the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book, whoever that lucky girl is, I'd love to hear what your StrengthsFinder top 5 are!

The Definitive Guide to busting #StrengthsFinder #Myths from #Singapore and around the world
IMG_3069.PNG

Having consulted for numerous leaders and conducting workshops for thousands of participants, there are some recurring misconceptions about StrengthsFinder that I would like to address. I have come up with a comprehensive resource to help anyone who is on this strengths journey - StrengthsFinder MythBusters: The Definitive Guide

When I tried searching for any resource available when it came to mythbusting, I found pocket here and there but nothing comprehensive enough for me. So I decided to do what any die-hard StrengthsFinder coach would do... come up with what I feel is the most comprehensive guide (to date) in understanding the myths there are about the StrengthsFinder paradigm

You would have probably heard a few people say things like "Oh StrengthsFinder is all about focusing on strengths and ignoring weaknesses". Or things like - I don't have those leadership strengths, that's why I can't lead

If you are one of those people who might have thought those statements to be true, I invite you to dive into 12 myths about StrengthsFinder that need busting. You can find the guide over at StrengthsSchool.com

Singapore StrengthsFinder coach Jason Ho on self-discovery, self-awareness followed by self-actualization
IMG_2278.JPG

 #Singapore #StrengthsFinder #CoachJasonHo #quote on self-discovery, self-awareness follow by self-actualization (all sounds very self-ish, but let me explain)

Self-discovery is defined by Cambridge as "the process of learning about yourself and your beliefs" and by Oxford as "The process of acquiring insight into one's own character". Both emphasie on the process of learning.

When I give StrengthsFinder training or coaching to participants in their late 50s or 60s, I get pleasantly surprised whenever I hear them say "I never knew that was called a talent".

Some are aware acutely aware of their strengths while others might be totally in the dark about it.

The great thing about how I use StrengthsFinder in my role as a coach is that its pleasantly versatile.

Wherever you are on your self-discovery journey, whether you are snorkling on the coral reef of your last week's successes, or diving deep into the abyss of your core character, you can be surprised when you receive your top 5 StrengthsFinder results.

Another I would put it: "Our search for inner talent is like exploring the deep sea. We are surprised by the very wonders that have been there for ages"

So what are you waiting for? Start exploring.

Pitched StrengthsFinder to Uber at their Singapore office on MapleTree Anson along Anson Road

Pitched #StrengthsFinder to #Uber at their #Singapore office on Mapletree Anson along Anson Road

Pitched #StrengthsFinder to #Uber at their #Singapore office on Mapletree Anson along Anson Road. And you definitely make an educated guess the mode of transport I decided to take - I 'Grabbed' an UBER

My purpose was actually to pitch to them. And when it comes to pitching about using StrengthsFinder for strengths-based Leadership, strengths-based team-building or even leadership executive coaching, I personally don't feel that I'm doing a sale, or closing a deal. For me, it's more like sharing a deep pasion I have for how a 'strengths paradigm' can really impact the levels of fulfilment in each participant's life. And this is encompassed by THEEE vision - "Seeing every generation live out their full potential"

If one of the clues to talent is when 'time stands still', then sharing about strengths to anyone is my personal talent.


When I stepped out of the 1.5 hour meeting, it feels to me like a 5 minute chat! And I could share a lot more about the benefits of StrengthsFinder to my client!

I'm going to be conducting the upcoming workshop for Uber next week and I am definitely look forward to making the session UBERexciting, UBERfruitful and UBERamazing!

• • To have the opportunity to impact an entire cohort in a school is such a privilege. For the students to know what they are gifted in at such a young age can be very powerful for their self-esteem and self-worth. • • We used the 'Strengths Explorer' framework to ignite the potential in each student and I could see the beginnings of a transformation over these 2 days. • • We managed to impact this school together with a team of Gallup-Certified StrengthsFinder Coaches and Strengths Coaches. I could see everyone of us taking on this opportunity with the highest levels of passion and excellence. • • I am grateful and proud of so many like-minded passionate individuals in the team that have put their heart into fulfilling the Strengths School vision of "Seeing every generation live out their full potential" • • #GallupStrengthsFinder #CliftonStrengths #StrengthsQuest #StrengthsSchool #Gallup #StrengthsFinderSG #HumanResource #SelfImprovement #SelfDevelopment #TeamBuilding #StrengthsCoach #ProfessionalDevelopment #StrengthsFinderCoach #CoachJasonHo

Together with the team, we impacted 71 school leaders for the entire day using the strengths-based approach of leadership. Madelia, a Gallup-Certified StrengthsFinder Coach, shared with the student leaders about her own experiences when she was once a Head Prefect Councillor. I can tell that the students could see her passion for transforming their lives, especially during smaller group discussions where she starts to coach them on a their unique strengths.

I'm impressed by Madelia's ability to lead the student group with high levels of student engagement. The teacher in-charge liked how we conducted the workshop so much, that she was asking details about how we could impact an entire cohort of students using this strengths-based approach next year! Looking forward to a more meaningful and impactful 2017!

What a way to spend the Sat where we at Strengths School™ have the privilege and opportunity to impact Singapore's future leaders to get their strengths game on!

StrengthsFinder #Workshop at #Singapore's #VISA #University in Raffles Place.

This is Visa's first Corporate University outside of America and it is situated primely at their Singapore headquarters along Robinson Road I always felt that I would one day teach in a university like my dad. And even though this is not the National University of Singapore, it does have a nice ring to it.

Together with my team, I shared about using StrengthsFinder to create empowering conversations. I taught on how we can make the shift from a subconscious level to a conscious level of using our top 5 StrengthsFinder results.

I believe that every StrengthsFinder talent theme has such powerful business application that I look forward to coming back and continue this "enlightenment" that was sparked.

It's a great new dawn of a strengths-based culture over at VISA Singapore and I'm excited!

StrengthsFinder #Workshop for #Singapore National Eye Centre #SNEC

Did the workshop for the entire HR department. I really enjoyed going deep into understanding their own strengths and how, if used wrongly, can also be their greatest weakness.

Certified StrengthsFinder Coach Mandy Lin also led the group using her #Developer and shared how they can leverage each other's strengths to increase productivity.

After that long session, I did a 1:1 coaching with their HR Director to help her understand more about her team's unique talents.

Today was an extremely fruitful day and I look forward to partnering SNEC on a journey of bringing out the best in everyone

#StrengthsFinder #Developer at #Singapore #NightFestival 


If people were liken to incomplete buildings that are a work-in-progress, Developers would totally enjoy being part of that journey.

Kind of like these little Eskimos that were “building” the wall of the National Museum.

They really look like they are having fun! In many ways Developers do derive a huge amount of purpose and fulfillment in building people’s “buildings”. They have a genuine care and concern for the growth of people around them. And once they see a little progress, they can’t wait to give encouragement to motivate others up another notch.

Like how the definition of StrengthsFinder Developer puts it: People exceptionally talented in the Developer StrengthsFinder theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from evidence of progress.

I have been on the nurturing end of Developers before and I must say that they have a unique patience towards growth that is quite enchanting.

Conducted a #StrengthsFinder workshop in #India and had an awesome time with the participants of an MNC. They learnt about their team’s #strengths and how to leverage it to #IncreaseProductivity at work. In this StrengthsFinder workshop, they also learnt how to immediately apply their strengths to motivate both their team members and themselves towards #PeakPerformance. Looking forward to the next 2 full-day session in #HongKong and then back to India. Thankful that these countries are all within close proximity to #Singapore my home. And by the way, I love #IndianFood! I somehow feel that the number of spices that is in the food is an #Ideation chef’s dream. #StrengthsQuest #StrengthsSchool

#StrengthsFinder #command #strength enjoys the notion of control. People with Command tend to instinctively have an #ImTakingCharge attitude when it comes to situations and especially in crisis. They are cool, calm and collected when the surrounding atmosphere is heated, hot getting hotter. When the crowd wants someone to step up and take control, people with command are happy to rise above. I saw this on the wall and they had a whole series of fantastic one-liners that I definitely want to share! #strengthsquest #StrengthsSchool #singapore

#StrengthsFinder #Developer is all about growth in a person; be it a team member, family member or even within the community. When it comes to developing someone, we can all agree that it takes a little breeze of faith, some sunlight of hope and a MASSIVE Cloud of PATIENCE!   But that doesn’t stop people talented with Developer, their skies are filled with #patience for another. Giving the seed the right nurturing environment to grow and the courage to thrive. In the end, when the seed shows any sign of growth, they are all smiles.   I came across this on the wall when I was attending a children’s superhero funfair in town. This was one of the stations that was teaching kids important values like honesty, patience and courage.   #StrengthsQuest #StrengthsSchool
