I observed the course immediately generating active participation that positively impacted everyone.

Margie is a wonderful coach, teacher and mentor. Her kind support and guidance are very much appreciated. Also, the entire training program is so well structured for our busy students and organized that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in this field
- Anita Wong ACC, Director Asia Legal Counsel
Before joining Margie's Paradigm 21's coaching training program, I already had many lessons and training on coaching, from the "Grow" model to Nike/Apple's internal coaching trainings. I did not expect much when I signed up for this course, but I must say I am blown away by the experience. First, I love the way Margie worked hard to emphasize the difference between coaching, training, and consulting. This fundamentally changed how I worked with my clients and helped me focus my effort to become a better coach. I used to be all over the place. I would offer suggestions, take clients to solutions too soon, ignore clients' motivations, and "did the work for my client" instead of coaching them to find their own paths. I have evolved thanks to Margie's training. Second, the structure of the training was incredibly effective and supportive. Even though the training was conducted entirely via Zoom, due to COVID, the interaction and atmosphere was better than any of the in-person coaching training I have received in the past, even at my previous companies such as Nike and Apple. The trainer and facilitators made a considerable effort to make sure everyone got to participate without being pushy. They steered the conversation towards positivity, learning, and growth. They created a safe space for me to be vulnerable, which propelled me to thorough growth and ultimately, transformation. Lastly, I really appreciate the vast network of classmates and alumni from all the courses of Paradigm 21. I felt blessed to be in a community of folks who all shared the passion for personal growth and coaching/serving others. It's priceless to be able to find my own tribe! Thank you for this transformative experience. I am very grateful.
- David Siu ACC, Ex-GM NIKE, Ex-GM APPLE
Margie Poon guided us as our mentor in our journey to become transformational coaches at Paradigm21. Throughout this journey, Margie involced us and pushed us out of our comfort zone to learn. She was able to sustain our passion and enthusiasm by building social platforms for us to share and learn with other coaches globally. Lastly by walking the talk, she has set the pace and cadence for us as future coaching leaders to help enrich others lives. Thank you Margie.
- Kevin Yao ACC, Director Athlete Experience, Greater China, Nike, Shanghai China, USA
