"As a Director at a Fortune 100 company, Joy was my leadership coach for a year. Joy was a very interactive coach and helped me develop approaches to hard conversations and then role played the conversations until I felt comfortable with my approach. I continue to use her guidance on tough conversations today.
The main area that I wanted to improve on was focus. Joy took the time to get to know me and how I approach life and used my lifestyle to develop a plan to work on my focus. Her unique and targeted approach made working on focus fun and enlightening.

"Joy Khoo provided exceptional coaching for me through a challenging career transition.
Substantively, Joy has strong knowledge of a diverse set of tools for leadership development and is a highly skilled facilitator. Based on my expressed needs or needs that we identified together, Joy selected and facilitated various activities for me. Over the course of my five month coaching period, Joy had thoughtfully sequenced a set of activities that encouraged me to explore some of my more latent skills and interests and also provided me with opportunities for deeper introspection. Joy guided me through mindful meditation, physical movement, creative exploration, and nature activities. She listened actively and had a great sense of humor. She knew when to keep me focused and when to let me associate freely which was helpful during our phone conversations. She was present throughout our sessions, but also kept track of time which meant that the wrap up never felt rushed.
By the end of our coaching period, Joy had led me through an incredible series of engaging activities and conversations that expanded my leadership toolbox. She also offered resources that fit my needs. I have a stronger understanding of my decision making strengths and growth areas, my potential blind spots, and a better sense of how I want to manage my career transition.
I strongly recommend Joy for leadership coaching."
Development Director, Asian Pacific Environmental Network.
"I started working with Joy when I contemplated a job/career change and she helped me work through some internal and external considerations that would make me happier and more productive. From an administrative perspective, Joy is great at initiating and following-up and accommodates what’s best for you. She is very organized, keeps tidy notes, and always has more than enough resources relevant for your needs.
On a personal level, Joy is an empathetic listener and has the natural ability to think of a person holistically. We talked about needs of the head, heart, body, etc. – all important factors when making a major life decision and I found this holistic perspective to be missing from other coaches. If you’re looking for someone kind, thoughtful, fun, and professional, Joy is your top choice for a coach!"
