Singapore Economic Development Board – Profiling & Visioning workshop – 25pax (Nov. 2013)

Understanding each individual’s profile and how we are as a team was good. The profiles will help in forming teams with synergies. Individuals can more consciously build skills despite not having preferences. The group activities that teamed up individuals with similar and different profiles was helpful to see how it is expressed in real-life situations.

Goh Wan Yee, Director - Human Capital Division, Singapore Economic Development Board

For a team to be highly effective and performing, you need to have diverse profiles. As a leader, one needs to be able to utilize the strengths of everyone effectively.  I loved the Emergenetics Profiling session which was well-paced and the games were well-planned and chosen meaningfully.

Emily Pe, Assistant Head of Education and Work Force Development
Human Capital Division, Singapore Economic Development Board

The accuracy and aha moments during the profile analyses was the best experience.Many thanks to trainer Dianna for making it fun – I feel refreshed after the workshop!

Lim Choon Leng, Head of Workforce Augmentation - Human Capital Division, Singapore Economic Development Board

Learning about my colleague’s profiles and knowing how to better work with each other for success was incredible. The session was thought out, planned and ran well and Dianna Lane was authentically enthusiastic, offering valuable pointers and insights.

Li Wei Yi, Assistant Head of Talent Programmes and Capability Development
Human Capital Division, Singapore Economic Development Board

The best part is I learnt more about my team. I liked the mix of fun games and interaction with the profiling revealing our personality and thinking preferences.

The trainer is spirited and engaging and has a great personality.

Red Cross Youth – Visionning and alignement workshop – 20pax (June 2012)

Fruitful experience where simple concepts were used to illustrate how things can/should work as a team and how the team can move forward. This session was different from the norm where art [painting] comes into play to portrait the thoughts we had, nice!

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful 20th year gift. The event you organized was very touching and one of the very high points emotionally in my 20 years in P&G. Sankhya and the kids were also very touched that you all had pulled this together. A big thanks.

Many thanks for your contribution to our off site meeting last week. The feedback from the organization was overwhelmingly positive, “best ever” came back several times, and quite a few employees referred to your session in particular.

They really valued the appreciation activity, as well as the opportunity to step back and think about simplicity in broader terms. The cards with inspirational quotes were also appreciated. Last week was just the beginning of the journey. And we left feeling energized rather than overwhelmed by the challenge ahead of us.

United Christian College (Hongkong) – Taman Negara ” Malaysia” – 6days – 22 pax

We enjoyed our time in Taman Negara. My students like the experience and some told me they miss Malaysia already! The log book is useful. The students can be encouraged to make good use of it and write their feedback/feeling on it. Some students are too shy to speak up, so the log book can be a good way to record their thoughts. Thank you for the arrangement, specialty to the facilitator, who facilitates the trip with great enthusiasm and professionalism.
