by Diane Wyzga | December 9, 2021 | Guest Podcast, Podcast | 0 comments
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk. You’ll recognize yourself in these true-life stories from (mostly) women who are walking their lives while their lives walk them and the lasting difference their journeys have made. I’m your host, Diane Wyzga.
Today my guest is Jeffrey Tan: Pathfinder, Transformation Coach and Leadership Mastery Facilitator/Trainer who is joining us from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Jeffrey helps people explore their paths in their personal and professional growth and development. Years of managing and working with people from all walks of life led him to a deep understanding of human behaviors and attitudes. In 1998 Jeffrey attended a Leadership Program to improve himself, and the rest – as they say – is history. Helping people develop their best selves became his passion. I’ve invited Jeffrey to talk with us about changing the narrative that no longer works for you, RISE the signature training program, trekking – including Nepal – and, parenting on COVID lock-down. Welcome to the podcast, Jeffrey!
BIO/ABOUT Jeffrey Tan
I’m a Pathfinder, a Coach and learning facilitator. I help people explore their paths in their personal and professional growth and development.
A fisherman and cook on a kelong, a site supervisor for a construction company, a Cleaning Operations Executive handling jobsites covering Kajang to Klang, a housekeeping supervisor in Holiday Villa for 3 months that led into a 25 year sales career as KL Branch Manager in one of Malaysia’s premium cleaning supplies company.
Those years of managing and handling peoples from all walks of life led me to an understanding of their behaviors and attitude.
These experience gave me insights into the pains and pleasures of:
1. Managing and understanding expectations of owners as well as the people I was leading.
2. Leading project, sales and operations teams.
3. Training operations and sales teams.
My experiences allowed me insights into the thoughts and behaviors of owners, managers, leaders, admin and operations personnel.
In 1998 I attended a Leadership Program to improve myself, and since then people development became a passion of mine.
I love the outdoors and mountain trekking which began with a trek in FRIM (Forest Research Institute of Malaysia) that led me to Gunung Angsi, Gunung Nuang and finally peaked on Mount Kinabalu. I began craving more adventures and ended trekking Gunung Tahan, ascending from Merapoh in Kelantan and descending in Kuala Tahan 10 days later. As adventures go, it never ends, as i targeted Annapurna Circuit in 2013 after coming down from Mount Kinabalu for the 3rd time.
In April 2014, my team of 8 trekked the Annapurna Circuit, Nepal.
My adventures thought me leadership, team engagement and the practice of self mastery, all of which enriches my training designs.
