I would like to express my sincere appreciation towards you for being an invaluable mentor and coach to several of our key leaders over the years.
Your business and leadership coaching have undoubtedly been instrumental in shaping our leaders over the time that we have engaged your services. Under your guidance, our leaders have benefited in a wide range of core competencies, but most notably in forward moving communication, sound decision making and effective people management and skills which are essential for building up strong and cohesive teams. Aside to this, your ability to discern and guide our leaders in seeing the bigger picture and your provision of wise counsel and practical advice to their problems emulated in your personalized coaching approach were also extremely well received and accredited by our leaders.
Steven, you have definitely been a great help to our business and contributed significantly towards our growth as an organization.
I first got to know Steven over a half year duration APAC Leadership Program that I participated in during 2019.
Throughout this program which had a combination of business leaders representing 14 different countries, Steven ran a series of sessions covering the power of leadership, business strategy and communication.
I was inspired by the lessons that supported my personal growth during this time, especially as a result of Steven’s authentic coaching style. I found Steven to be knowledgeable, direct and thought provoking as he challenged my thoughts and had me examining my own strategy and approach for improvement.
Steven was direct, yet fair and help me clearly identify opportunities to improve with the support and tips that went with that.
A year on and I moved into a new Executive General Manager role which involved my employer being acquired which meant that I was then responsible for the integration of two businesses and a new CEO.
During this transition I felt it would be the perfect opportunity to engage with Steven as a personal business coach to assist me in my personal development and the building of the new business.
During my coaching sessions with Steven held via video conference from Australia to Singapore, I have found that he combines his skills as a business coach, leadership coach and in some regards a life coach which has supported me to grow, develop and keep focused on the course that both the business is on – along with the journey that I am personally on.
I highly recommend Steven if you are looking for coaching with-in your organisation or personal coaching that relates to business, leadership or life. He has made a big difference to me.
Evaluation of INSPIRE-TIVATE’s Leadership Coaching Program
Kelly Services (Singapore) firmly believes in investing in and developing talents in the company. In 2019, I decided to take a different approach. Instead of sending my leaders to typical training courses, I asked Steven Chan of INSPIRE-TIVATE, a bespoke executive and leadership coaching company, to proposed something radical, practical and relevant.
The objectives were to; (1) Sharpen leadership skills, (2) Foster understanding amongst leaders from different functional departments, (3) Groom the Next-Gen leaders, and (4) Retain talents.
INSPIRE-TIVATE created the Leadership Coaching Program (LCP), centered around four case studies on actual business situations that the company had experienced. Those situations included dealing with challenges of leading difficult team members and retaining clients, making decisions with integrity to upkeep the reputation of the company in the face of financial and client pressure, and finally to be able to conduct out-of-the-box business planning to enhance the company performance in FY2020.
Steven skillfully prepared and facilitated 6 sessions over the year to lead 20 participants and my Directors through the program. His years of experience in senior leadership roles in major public-listed companies gave him a good understanding of business needs and how to motivate people to do their best made him relevant and effective in delivering LCP.
Steven Chan of INSPIRE-TIVATE is as an effective leadership and executive coach who brings valuable and measurable results through his Leadership Coaching Program.
I am satisfied with the results and will challenge Steven to facilitate another radical and practical LCP for FY2020 focusing on diversity and inclusion strategy to attract top talent and drive innovative results.
"I feel very privileged to have Steven as my executive coach early on in my leadership journey. He strikes a balance of careful listening and asking thought provoking questions leading me to solid decisions. He has helped me understand things from different perspective with his wealth of experience, thus finding very meaningful solutions. His solution focused coaching have seen positive impacts in my personal and professional development.
Steven is phenomenal at what he does. I highly recommend Steven, he is genuinely interested in your development and growth.“
"My 3.5 years of one-to-one coaching sessions with Steven have been nothing short of amazing. Through his coaching, I have learned to think out of the box. He has consistently encouraged me to focus on the bigger picture, and guided me to establish solutions instead of giving me solutions. With this, I have gained a broader perspective about business, which helped me to structure my goals in a way that I would have never thought of before.
Steven’s coaching style helps me to focus on the things that really matter to me and on how I can achieve them.”
"I engaged Steven Chan as a business advisor under the SPRING Singapore business advisor program in May2010. He advised me on overall business strategies and many other aspects of business related challenges.
He is a dedicated, intelligent, experienced and committed business advisor who is always able to cut through the clutter and identify the core important issues I have on hand. Moreover, Steven’s business advice and views are always based on sound principles and doing the right things.
I have the utmost respect for him."
"Steven has been a wonderful marriage coach mentor! He has walked the journey with my spouse and I for a year (during our 7th year of marriage) and we are grateful for his guidance.
Steven's words of wisdom have made our marriage stronger and one thing we really appreciate is that he doesn't take sides in any dispute. We have learnt how best to be more loving, caring and to make each other feel appreciated. Indeed, we have benefited tremendously from his guidance.
We highly recommend him as a Marriage Coach to all couples!"

“That we still remember vividly the times we met with Steven, almost 2 years from the time of our last meeting, is a big testament to the impact that season of marriage coaching left on our marriage.
Mentoring relationships work best when mentors are able to model the values they are advocating through real life. As such, watching Steven and his wife, Michelle, conduct their marriage within their home has really left a mark.
Through his gentle probing with relevant questions, we learnt many new things about each other, which is ever helpful.
Marriage coaching is for any couple who wants to invest in a sacred union and see it bear fruits for generations to come.
We highly recommend it; more than that, we recommend Steven as your marriage coach.”
