“The mission statement of Lifeskills Institute is “Empowering people to lead their organisations and communities with impact by fanning into flame the gifts in them.” In the 2 days CBC training I recently had, I personally felt I was empowered. The trainers were able to meet me where I was at and even though my background & training is not in the corporate world, they could “speak” my language & make the training very practical & applicable to what I do & where I work. They made the training a fun learning experience & created a safe place & space for learning & vulnerability. I highly recommend Life Skills Institute: no matter whether you are in the corporate world, NGO or in non- profits.
“The explanations of trainers were most helpful and insight. Their knowledge in counselling added width and insight to the topic. Their experiences and stories were most interesting too! The logistics (Who Am I Cards, post its) were most helpful for my own learning too. Trainers provided suggestions as to how we can post some questions to help analyse the graphs with our clients. “
"Dear Ian and Lee Fong, Thank you very much for sharing your expertise and facilitating 2 great workshops that have no doubt enhanced the collaboration between the team.

Looking forward to stronger teamwork and looking forward to when our paths will cross again. With deep and sincere gratitude"
“Trainers facilitated well and engaged the audience with their authenticity, openness and desire to share knowledge. They went beyond their extra mile to ensure learning is not only effective but meaningful. They also contextualised learning very well to the participants, resonating and connecting effectively to let us discover many AHH! moments. They truly reflect the value that "we do not teach content, we teach people!! "Thank you, Ian & Lee Fong, it was hours well spent. Learning from your experiences and expertise.”

"Excellent topics! Excellent Seminar! I wish all Singaporeans in our country can learn about this tool – then there will be no mismatch of jobs to maximise resources – for our younger generation to alleviate frustration during their growing up years. Young adults can also excel in our country with purpose.”
“I came with little knowledge of DISC. Initially when the lesson started off by asking about guessing who is DISC or linked to certain situation/character to DISC, I was lost. Only after the explanation, I could relate better. All the trainers were awesome. I was engaged throughout great sharing as I really learnt a lot. Thank you for the hard work.”
“Lee Fong is a key trainer for Leadership Challenge for Bank of Singapore, a flagship program for leaders within the Bank and is personally helmed by the CEO of our organization. She is well-versed with the leadership challenge principles as she is able to articulate the concepts and share the principles with the participants in a clear as well as easy to understand manner.

In fact, if you’re looking to scale your team, this course is a MUST-GO, else you may be making a grave mistake!”
"After going through the CBC course, I've discovered numerous ways to improve many parts of my business. For example, I've learnt how to hire more suitable people based on their personality type and job description. Many at times, we hire based eligibility (work experience, etc.), but the ONE THING that we tend to overlook is the SUITABILITY of the individual. Thanks to the wonderful trainers at Lifeskills, we're on to a great start to building a strong culture. No regrets attending the course. In fact, if you're looking to scale your team, this course is a MUST-GO, else you may be making a grave mistake!"
