Chang Zhang

Leadership Coach

Chang believes that to lead is to make intentional impacts. Also, she believes that all the resources needed for her clients to build a fulfilling and meaningful life are already within them.

Chang is curious, playful, and direct. She is a truth-teller. She uses metaphors and visual clues to help the clients get to the core quickly. Chang has the gift of active listening and she is good at holding a safe and courageous space for transformations to happen.

Chang is originally from Beijing and now living in Singapore with her husband and two cats. She is an amateur astrologer who is constantly amazed by the fact that we are just little dots on planet Earth travelling in this big universe, at the same time having the potential of making profound impact in any given moment on the world we are living in.

Chang offers coaching in Chinese and English.
