Coaching Beyond Performance – INTAN’s Journey with The Malaysian Public Sector.
The National Institute of Public Administration (INTAN) embarked on a journey to create a quality and competent public sector workforce five decades ago. INTAN understands that in the 21st century, competency development goes beyond enhancing knowledge and skills and requires nurturing and fortifying behavioural attributes. This presentation will showcase the journey of the initiatives, programs and efforts to make coaching a culture in the Malaysian public sector. In preparing and sustaining a competent and efficient public sector, continuous motivation and passion must be reinvigorated in individuals, looking beyond their productivity and KPIs. Coaching in the Malaysian public sector offers the window for each individual to be vulnerable in a safe space, realigned to move beyond one’s comfort zone to become innovative, creative and solution-focused in serving the nation.
