We aspire to be Asia’s most trusted authority for life skills learning, development, accreditation and practice. We empower people to lead their organisations and communities with impact by fanning into flame the gifts in them. Our authority is manifested by applying three key principles: Character, Competence and Connection.

At Lifeskills Institute, we believe that the strength of one’s Character is determined by their life’s purpose and authenticity. We enable each individual to uncover their strengths, develop innate abilities and maximise their potential in their personal lives and careers. Our Competence comes from partnering with top international experts in the field and using only techniques validated by international research and evidence-based practice.

Our Chief Enabling Officer Ian Tan is the Master Trainer and Accreditor for award-winning leadership development programme, The Extraordinary Leader™ by Zenger Folkman and DISC & PeopleKeys by the Institute for Motivational Living. We are also a global training partner and certified facilitator for The Leadership Challenge® by Kouzes & Posner.

Lifeskills Institute provides comprehensive life skills and our most valuable asset lies in our expertise to connect our learners in international validated research through evidence-based practices and renowned experts. We provide solutions in leadership training, career coaching, professional certification, profiling tools and talent management for both the corporate and youth segments. Our Professional division partners with corporations to empower their executives through professional development and mastery to achieve results and growth for their organisations, while our Youth division engages with schools, institutions and educators to develop their students into effective leaders of their own lives and communities.

Our success has been made possible in countries such as Singapore, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam as we build a deep connection with our learners and partners that extends far beyond that of just clients and distributors.
