Ever since I left the corporate world in 2003 to start a coaching business, I could feel God’s presence in all my work in this field. One of His biggest gifts to me was helping me in founding the Malaysian Association of Certified Coaches (MACC) in 2010 to be first and only government-approved national body in coaching here (and perhaps in the world).

Recently, He made this gift even better. The Registrar of Societies approved MACC’s amended constitution which rooted MACC permanently to carry out CCA’s vision of ‘growing a vibrant coaching community’ in this part of the world. In doing this, it recognized MACC as the legal alumnus of CCA, granting powers to a Board of Governors (BOG) to oversee its activities, and making it necessary for top positions in its EXCO to be helmed by certified coaches from this alma mater.

I will always feel deeply obligated to people who have invested time, efforts and money in coaching and in MACC to help themselves grow further. And I continue to do this until my last breath for all my students, graduates and MACC members. I want to ensure that whoever helms CCA after me will share the same philosophy, belief, commitment and drive to continue with this mission. And so, I ask of them this : to give at least 70% commitment to MACC. But mine is always 110% for sure. This is expected of anyone in the BOG so that we provide the vision, be the “check and balance system”, and be always ready to ‘dirty’ our hands whenever they are needed.
I am sure that God will always be with MACC in its mission to pursue the Coaching cause as we coaches (as the late Michael Jackson said) ‘can make the world a better place for you and for me’.
