#GotAPhing? Introverts Unite: You Are A Powerful Leader
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why as an introvert, you are a powerful leader. Welcome to the final day of my 5-day 5-part 'Introverts Unite' series. If you haven't caught the other days, please follow and favourite my podcast! Leadership - a very interesting topic and something that I'm extremely passionate about, especially youth leadership.   So, why would an introvert make a good and powerful leader?   What do you think of when you think of a leader? Is it someone that is very out-there? Is it someone that has a lot to say, is it someone who always looks good in an awesome suit, or a in an awesome sharp professional dress?   So when you think of a leader, what comes to mind?  And, if it you could tag a personality to that, how would you describe a leader?   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Introverts Unite: Speak Up and Be Heard
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why you should speak up and be heard. Welcome to day 4 of my 5-day 5-part 'Introverts Unite' series. If you haven't caught the other days, do follow my podcast!  The ability to speak up and be heard pays massive dividends in your career, business or in life. Yes, I know you're an introvert and you think best and you work best when you're alone.  The thing is - when we are actually at work, whether it's in our corporate job or you're an entrepreneur, at the end of the day you are working with other people. So, you'll be spending time with people, either working together as part of a team, a collaboration on a project or even correspondences.  So, if you stick to the typical introvert's way of doing things which is doing things quietly on the sidelines, doing things on your own, never volunteering, always waiting to the called, waiting for instructions, and just generally waiting for something to happen etc. Then, don't be surprised when later on come feedback time, performance reviews and promotions, you then realise that you're not getting ahead.   Because, if you're not communicating, you don't exist.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Introverts Unite: Deep Conversations Are Cool
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why deep conversations are cool. Hi - we are now at the mid point of my 5-day 5-part 'Introverts Unite' series. If you haven't caught the earlier ones, please follow my podcast!  So, right now, in the world today, there is a lot of emphasis on 'small talk'.  If you are attending a bunch of trainings and courses, I'm sure you would have heard about why small talk is so important to launch your business, how it helps in your career, and in terms of developing a good and cordial relationship with people.   Great - I'm all about small talk. I think the ability to have small talk is a really good skills to have in your communication arsenal - so, amazing!  What I want to talk about today is the lack of appreciation of the beauty and the power of having deep conversations.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Introverts Unite: Quiet Doesn't Mean Stupid
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why quiet doesn't mean stupid. So, we are now in day 2 of my 5-day 5-part 'Introverts Unite' series and welcome!  As an introvert myself, I was a very quiet child when I was growing up. I was always observing people. I didn't really had much to say, even though I had a lot of ideas and a lot of things going on in my mind - observations, thoughts and being curious about things.  But I didn't really felt the need to share. I didn't feel the need to tell people how I felt and I was generally quite quiet. I didn't mix around with my cousins or friends.  I want to remind everybody that quiet doesn't mean stupid.  And, I want you to ask yourself when was the last time you met a person who was fairly quiet.   What was your immediate thought of that person in terms of confidence and competence?   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Introverts Unite: Introverts Are Not Weirdos
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why introverts are not weirdos. This is the first part of my 5-part 5-day series of 'Introverts Unite', so do listen on!   The thing is I have spoken to many introverts and being an introvert myself, there is always one big thing that I feel we think about a lot - and, there might be some truth to that.   People out there think that introverts are weird.  Weird because we are not always very keen to join the next party, we are not that keen in networking events, we don't always say yes to meet-ups, we spend a lot of time at home etc. People find that weird because - what's there to do at home?  My friends - let me tell you that there is a lot to do at home! You can read, you can write, you can learn something on youtube, google some interesting articles etc.   At the end of the day, if you enjoy spending time in solitude, spending time at home to recuperate, there is really nothing wrong with that.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Signs You're Secretly An Introvert
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about introverts, specifically signs that you are secretly an introvert.  It's very interesting to note that introversion is not the same as social anxiety or shyness. If you're an introvert, it doesn't actually mean that you're constantly feeling socially anxious or you are extremely shy and you don't talk. That is a very big misconception about this personality type.   I can hand to heart tell you this because I am an introvert myself.  In fact my introversion level is quite high, probably about 80%.  That doesn't mean that I or other introverts out there are quiet people. As you guys know, I do videos, I share a lot on my social media and I'm also recording this podcast!  Today I really want to talk about what is an introvert, and more importantly for those of you who are still wondering if you are an introvert/ambivert, or you are trying to deal with an introvert - the first step is to identify one.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Top 10 Soft Skills: Creativity Goes A Long Way
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about creativity, and specifically why creativity really goes a long way.  Let me ask you this - How often does an issue arise? or maybe even issues, problems, circumstances? And if your personal and professional lives are like the most of us, I'm sure it happens more than you like. And that's where creativity comes in.   Creativity is a very close soft skill that will help in problem solving. The thing about problem solving is this - it's very easy to tell someone that they need to bring you solutions, but how are they going to come up with solutions? Is it just a simple google.com and the magical genie called Google will simply answer all of your questions?  But is it tailored to your actual circumstance and your actual issue?   Probably NOT.  ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method!  ⚡ Want to know more?  ► www.GotAPhing.com   ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing  ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing  ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing  ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Top 10 Soft Skills: Adapt - Nothing Stays The Same
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about adaptability, because the truth is nothing ever stays the same.  I hear a lot of words thrown around such as transformation, change management etc.  Every person whether in business or in corporate are constantly talking about this ability to adapt as well as be flexible.   But what is that really important? It's because the world is changing at a rapid pace - whether you want to recognise it or not.  There was a place and time where we used passbooks, cheque books etc - those days are long gone and we are moving into a digital world.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method!  ⚡ Want to know more?  ► www.GotAPhing.com   ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing  ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing  ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing  ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Top 10 Soft Skills: Attention to Detail Matters Too
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why we should pay attention to detail, and it's not always about the big-picture.  Now, let me ask you a few questions - is your work always accurate, is your report always thorough, does your deliverable always contain all the information that is being asked for?  If you can't answer Yes to all of these questions, this will likely mean that you have not yet mastered the art of paying attention to detail.  I know that thinking big, strategic thinking, having big picture thinking, these are the words you hear thrown out a lot in the corporate world or in business today. Every leader needs to have big thinking, big data, big whatever etc.  But let me tell you today, the small things matter too.   The small things that are ultimately the ones that make up the big things.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Top 10 Soft Skills: Make Your Own Decisions
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about why you need to make your own decisions, and what is holding you back.  Making decisions is the hallmark of a leader. It shows that you are confident enough to take the next step forward, and taking the next right step forward is all that matters. Progress is still progress.  The worse thing is procrastinating and then waiting for something to happen. Like I always say - hope is not a strategy. This is something that I tell every single one of my coaching clients - it's so important to remember. Let that really sink in.   Why some people are afraid of making decisions?   It's all down to the fear of making a wrong decision - people don't like to be wrong.   ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Top 10 Soft Skills: Clear and Critical Thinking
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about clear and critical thinking, and how it helps in problem-solving.  In today's world, we are all very focused on doing, doing, doing - there's always something to do, there's always something we need to take action on. That all is great - taking action is obviously much better than sitting around and waiting for something to happen - it doesn't work like that, guys.  The thing is, if you don't think about why you're doing something and what you are trying to achieve, what is the likelihood that you will achieve what you've set out to achieve? So, that's what's really happening in corporates as well as in business.  Everyone is looking for growth, everyone is trying to chase this magical growth out there without getting clear on what their strategy is.   And, that's where clear and critical thinking comes in.  ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

We are now in Day 5 of my 10-day 'Top 10 Soft Skills' series!   In today's podcast, I want to talk about leadership, specifically how leadership really starts with you.   In my view, leadership essentially is self-management.  I know that leadership is a very big word - we hear it a lot, all the time. Everyone's telling you that you have to become a good leader - we all want to become a good leader, we want to become a team lead, we want to have a big team etc.   So, I want you all to take a pause today and realise that leadership truly starts with you.  If you want to become a leader, guess who you have to lead first.  It's YOU!  ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

How are you actually helping?

Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about getting along with people.  Is there ever a day where we don't have to deal with people? Maybe for some of you hermits out there, that day actually exists, but we all live in the real world. To progress in your career or do well in business, you must be able to get along with people.   Yes, there are a lot of things you can do on your own. But a huge portion of that will rely on other people to help you make things work, and even if you have a product to sell as an entrepreneur, you need clients. And, clients are people.  There are some very highly prized abilities such as teamwork, collaboration, cooperation and coordination.  Guess what is the fundamental of all these?   People!  ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

#GotAPhing? Top 10 Soft Skills: The Art of Communication
Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? I’m Mei Phing, the founder of Got A Phing and a passionate advocate of youth leadership.  In today's podcast, I want to talk about communication, and go into the detail on the  art of communication.   I'm sure we all know by now that everything in your life or your workplace are impacted by your ability or inability to communicate well.   What is this big word called 'communication'? Is communication solely confined to the ability to speak well? A lot of people equate communication to public speaking - I beg to differ.  I think that communication is that 99.9% of conversations that we have in our daily life.  In my view, communication consists of five key components: listening, speaking, writing, reading and non-verbal.  ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing

Since young, we are told to focus on studying hard in school and getting that paper qualification in university. But, what you have learned are mostly hard skills.   Smart, brilliant and talented people with poor soft skills get fired every day.   Soft skills matter.  Where are you in terms of your ability to: communicate clearly, creative thinking, problem solving, managing your time, getting along with others and taking the lead?  ⚡Ask me about my 'P.H.I.N.G' coaching method! ⚡ Want to know more? ► www.GotAPhing.com ► www.linkedin.com/in/meiphing ► www.facebook.com/gotaphing ► www.instagram.com/gotaphing ► www.anchor.fm/gotaphing
