ABOUT US

A VERY WARM WELCOME TO THIS SPACE

 

Cadence Coaching & Consulting was set up in 2011 with an intention to support organizations and individuals in development work. We offer coaching, mindfulness programs and organizational development services to support individuals and organizations in their journey to create sustainable growth, well-being and excellence. 

Tuning in to your inner cadence. Cradling what is to emerge... boundless potential

In Cadence, we believe individuals can tap into their reservoirs of resources and potential as unique human beings, to bring about their effectiveness with support. To evoke changes and development that are truly effective and sustainable, our approach is to inquire into the heart of the matter, understanding the inner cadences of individuals and organizations so as to designing interventions that resonate with their inner cadences.

Samantha Boo, Founder of Cadence Coaching & Consulting 

Sam started her consulting and coaching business in 2011 after more than 20 years of professional experience in diverse roles, from executive search and education to corporate functions in Human Resource, Customer Service, Marketing and Engineering. She started her career as a Mechanical Engineer in Australia and then as a Marketing Engineer at SISIR (now PSB) when she returned to Singapore. She soon discovered that she has a strong interest in understanding and working with people. Her career unfolded over the years into development work with people and organizations which she loves. 

 

Coaching Experience & Approach

Sam has coached for more than 1000 coaching hours and worked with executives from a variety of organizations. The levels that she has coached include Senior Leadership team to middle management. The topics include people engagement and development, emotional intelligence, communication, self-leadership, leadership presence, confidence, resilience, and other managerial competencies.

Sam uses integral coaching methodology as a foundation to design coaching programs. Each program works towards building one’s competence to be more effective in the area that he/she wanted to be coached on. Her diverse background and experience allows her to be very agile in adapting to the needs of the client organization. She has experience using inputs from various profiling tools, 360 feedback, interviews, team survey and observations at meetings in approaching the coaching assignments.

Being in management consulting, she has an in-depth understanding of leadership roles and behavioural competencies as well as team engagement. As a mindfulness facilitator, she is able to offer grounded practices for her clients, supporting them to be more self-aware so that they are able to self-correct and self-generate in their developmental journey, beyond the coaching engagement.

 

Organization & Leadership Development Experience

Sam has worked with corporate leaders on their organizational development and human resource initiatives to enhance people performance and business sustainability. Her expertise include competency modelling, talent assessment & development, succession planning, performance management, and profiling (leaders & team). She has more than 10 years experience in Harrison Assessment profiling, for recruitment, development and succession planning purposes.

For leadership training, Sam designs her own workshops incorporating vertical development aspect to evoke deeper learning. She also leverages on her coaching experience, to create an inviting space for participants to have authentic conversations.  

Mindfulness Facilitation Experience

Mindfulness has always been the foundation of Sam's work in coaching and leadership development. Sam has conducted various workshops and group practices in mindfulness, including online courses for corporate and public members recently. She has also conducted two runs of MBCT under supervision as well as Finding peace in a frantic world for school teachers.

Sam has witnessed how individuals become more aware of themselves and others, and feel much more at ease, empowered and liberated when they can make conscious choices in how they want to respond moment to moment. Grateful for how the work has helped her to live a more purposeful and integrated life, she is thrilled to offer this gift to others.

Interests

Sam is a Qigong and Yoga practitioner. She enjoys going on meditation retreats, sightseeing overseas, nature walk and learning arts & crafts. Her two fur babies, Kenzo and Kimi are her daily joy.

OUR CLIENTS

American, European and Japanese MNCs, Statutory Boards and Individuals 

OUR TRANSFORMATION FRAMEWORK

Aligning to the organizational vision and strategic goals, we employ a systemic approach to facilitate the individual's or organization's transformation journey. 

Broadly, the four stages are:

1. Creating motivations - conducting diagnosis and assessments, soliciting feedback, etc.  as opening for change

2. Enabling conditions - creating an inviting environment and building relationships to support impending change

3. Designing and implementing interventions or programmes

4. Reinforcing change - having framework, processes and practices to support new behaviours
