The First Spark
Driven with a Passion for People
Sophia Tan (MSocSc) has been involved in counselling and training for various organisations since 1984. While the visionary in her had thought about starting eldercare homes, orphanages, and various charity organisations, she had never thought that of starting her own coaching centre. Then one day, after completing a series of leadership training in China, she came across a motivational training video while waiting for her flight back home. The more she watched, the more she felt that the speaker was simply spewing pseudo-science and abstract concepts about leadership and teams. There was nothing of substance that could be applied in the real world…
Feeling that people deserve better, she wondered what could she do.
One Thing Led To Another
Alignment of People for a Purpose
Upon her return to Singapore, some friends starting ringing up Sophia to ask if she had started a coaching business. Confused, and reeling from travel fatigue, she wondered if her friends were playing a prank on her.
Then one day, a distant friend called and talked about her observations in China. He asked, “Sophia, have you thought about using your coaching skills to start a business?” and Sophia was connected with Dr Shirley Lim, founder of Research Communications International. One thing led to another, and Morphos came to be.
