Founder, Change Strategist & Leadership Coach
The first thing you should know about me is that "change is in my DNA."
My first memories of significant change occurred when I came to the United States as a Vietnamese refugee. Coming to America as a refugee has taught me that just because change happens to you, joy and happiness can still be derived from learning new things and being challenged.
I remember I struggled with reading, writing, and speaking English as a child in this new country. Then one day, I discovered I quite enjoyed this new language called English. I was in the 8th grade and I competed in the Optimist International Oratorical contest. I placed 2nd. I remember my teacher asking me if I was upset because I had lost.
Oddly enough, I remember thinking that no, I didn't feel sad or disappointed. Grinning from ear-to-ear, I said to my teacher, "Me sad? I'm the kid who was a Vietnamese refugee; I'm the kid who struggled with English for so long! And, I just won 2nd place in an oratorical contest in English!" I remember screaming, "Are you kidding me? I feel totally awesome!"
Today, I am a proud Vietnamese-American who enjoys reading prose. Some of my favorite poets include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Shel Silverstein, and Maya Angelou to name a few.
My professional career has also been steeped in change. Having worked in a variety of industries and positions at all levels (from sales and customer service to IT developer, from personal chef to executive leader), I have learned that change is an absolute constant. I have learned that the key to successfully navigating change means being able to find opportunities even when you are faced with adversity. Indeed, adversity is often when the greatest opportunities present themselves.
I've been laid off, down-sized, and even left great jobs of my own accord when they no longer felt challenging or pushed me to develop and learn. Throughout all of this, what has propelled me forward has been my ability to leverage the process of change to facilitate my thinking about my desires, needs, and fears. Facing change head-on allowed me to be true to myself, find a way forward, and discover new opportunities in the process.
I'll be the first to tell you it takes energy to change and adapt. However, making this investment in adapting to change while remaining open and curious is what affords you the ability to learn about new possibilities, discover opportunities, and make the most of your situation.
As a Change Strategist, I take all of my various experiences, struggles, and learnings to help clients leverage their strengths, learn, and find a pathway that's true for them. I assist my clients in discovering and creating long-term success and opportunities through change.
When Quang is not working with his clients he loves to discover new ethnic dishes, cook for family and friends, learn about new cultures, practice new languages, and travel the globe.
