TT Chen has coached several of our key talents in Asia Pacific. He was able to work with our key talents on their gaps and make them successful. One key skill that TT has is the ability to build trust with his coachees and thus they are willing to share their key issues with him to allow him to coach them. TT's experience also allow him to quickly understand our business needs and work with the young leaders to meet those needs. TT is very specific in the deliverables and has strong follow up with the changes in the organization to allow him to adjust the deliverables in order for the young leaders to be successful. Overall, he has successfully coached our young leaders who were able to take up key roles within the AP organization. I would strongly recommend him to any organization who needs to build their talent within their organization.
