Hee Soo Yin, EdD, Executive Director, Career and Life Design Consulting, partners leaders professionals and teams to connect with who they are, what matters, and purpose to bring out their best and their unique contributions to life.

She is a Doctor of Education (Durham, UK) with professional credentials as a Certified Master of Career Services (CMCS-National Career Development Association), a Professional Certified Coach (PCC-International Coaching Federation), a Specialist Adult Educator-Curriculum Development (SAE-CD, SkillsFuture Singapore), and a Registered Sandplay Therapist (STR- Association for Sandplay Therapy).

She practised law for five years before following her heart to teach at a non-profit organisation and subsequently made a career change to education.

On her professional career, she says, “What anchored and gave me courage and joy as I navigated career transitions and diverse roles in private, public, non-profit organisations, tertiary institutions and in government was to connect with my love for developing individuals, teams and myself on-the-job as we worked to deliver value and excellence in organisational outcomes.”

Dr Hee sees organisations as first of all, human enterprises. Working to foster a culture which honours what is unique of individuals and teams and what is deeply human will enable individuals to bring their best self to work with others to respond more dynamically and sustainably to the complex needs of a world in constant change and disruption.

She says, “I respect and trust that every client is unique, creative and resourceful. To facilitate transformational learning, I partner my clients to explore how they think, their assumptions, beliefs, values, needs and wants and how they perceive themselves and the world, enabling them to gain fresh perspectives and greater clarity of who they uniquely are, what matters to them and their innate strengths. I also partner my clients to uncover blind spots and unconscious bias that may be limiting their effectiveness, facilitating transformational learning for behavioural change to realise the potential of what they want to achieve.”

Dr Hee integrates her knowledge and rich experience in adult learning and development with positive psychology, depth psychology, positive neuroplasticity and interpersonal neurobiology in her work with clients. Her approach is holistic, integrative and systemic, with a focus on facilitating transformational learning for sustainable change for leaders, professionals and their teams.
