On this episode of the Coaching Studio, I welcome my guest today Mel Leow, MCC. We discuss business, feedback, self-reflection, and bravery. The idea of partnership and the need to learn to get comfortable with "not knowing" so that we can be in full curiosity with our clients and thusly better coaches.

When I asked him what he would say to those seeking their MCC, he responded, "I think I'll just start by saying don't take yourself so seriously. And I did, and I did the start, at least. Um, I kind of felt like I was the savior of the room. I didn't just do coaching; I did facilitation. I did some speaking gigs and, um, strategic leadership team meetings and stuff like that. So did all that. Um, and sometimes those experiences give you the feel like you're in control, back again. Um, but I guess, uh, the more I let the people do the work, um, the less I feel like I've got to build up this, and I've got to do this to build my credibility. All of that is, I guess, important for the growth."

With 28 years in Coaching, Consulting, Marketing, and Leadership in the Asia Pacific region, Mel’s key drive is to coach and empower Catalysts and Leaders to Live. Be. Brave. Mel serves c-suite executives from global and regional organizations to lead and thrive, speak their minds, connect with their hearts and bring out the best in others! He has over 4500 hours of Executive and Team Coaching experience and is one of 1500 Master Certified Coaches globally credentialed by the ICF. He is passionate about equipping "Future Coaches" through the Catalyst Coach Certification program as their Mentor Coach and Principal Trainer. Mel is a co-author of three books, “Bring Out Their Best,” “Coach Wisdom” (Volume II), and “The Calling” and author of the “ENGAGE – How to Stop Living in Default and Start Living the Life You Desire.

Check out Mel's book, Engage: How to stop living in default and start living the life you desire!
