Harnessing the power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming Dr. HARRY WONG  (Dr. Happy) is revolutionising corporate coaching to wide applause.

(Dr. Happy)

Hong Kong’s dynamic corporate coaching industry remains a beacon to the Asia-Pacific in that it is home to the best, brightest and most accomplished of time-tried and tested corporate coaches.

Yet, there are differences in the technology that the city’s coaches use to groom, train and empower tomorrow’s business leaders. One such path finder is Dr. Harry Wong.

Dr. Harry Wong, also known publicly as Dr. Happy, established WYH International Consultancy in 2004. Dr. Happy is a certified master trainer, training architect and success coach that designs tailored learning solutions. His interactive, state-of-the-art training technique propels participants to self-discovery and mutual, shared development.

Adding Value            

As Asia’s 1st and the Greater China’s only ANBLP Certified Master Trainer of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) personally trained and certified by Drs. Tad and Adriana James, Dr. Happy has trained and certified nearly 1,000 NLP practitioners in 14 years and over 37,000 business professionals since 1999. Dr. Happy brings value to his trainees by training and focusing on learning, versus teaching and focusing on knowledge.

His state-of-the-art “Edu-tainment” style of training creates a high quality and enjoyable facilitation environment. As a Certified LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Facilitator, this unique tool and method has been applied during trainings to create synergetic impact among team members. Training focuses include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Employee Engagement and Positivity
  • Self-motivation and Team Empowerment
  • Assertive Communication and Storytelling
  • Happy Coaching
  • Presence and Making Presentations with Impact
  • Innovative Problem Solving

With nearly a decade of solid and practical background in auditing and business consultancy at KPMG (Canada) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (Hong Kong), alongside 20 years of corporate training experience, Dr. Happy is well-seasoned on the struggles and pain points corporate businesses face. His experience includes providing trainings and consulting solutions for Disney, Philips, PCCW-HKT etc,.

“Topics such as “leadership” are one of the deliverables that trainings hope to provide, but this is a broad term that speaks differently to each client. In taking a niche approach, the trainer can identify the client’s true training needs.” says Dr. Happy.

“Edu-tainment” is the training style of choice of Dr. Happy, as it creates an interactive environment built on the foundations of enjoyment facilitating learning. A well-illustrated example is the use of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method in our trainings, where the training solutions foster creative thinking and personal development through building LEGO® bricks and explaining their stories behind the models they built. As a Certified Master Trainer of NLP, Dr. Happy is able to build rapport and help trainees navigate their businesses through this problem-solving experience.

Solutions Approach

“We are currently exploring the possibility of offering NLP practitioner certification programmes to South East Asia countries (e.g. Malaysia). Additionally, we would love to develop a public “Train-the-Trainer and Facilitator Programme” which helps in-house training professionals refine and take their facilitation and delivery skills to the next level,” Dr. Happy says.

“Today, millennials account for 30-40% of the work force. Well-equipped managers with the relevant skills are able to retain engagement with the new generation in order to enable better collaboration with a big future focus. There is an increase in the desire to incorporate artificial intelligence across a variety of industries. However, our focus will remain to drive change through the people-centric training and aims to enable participants find their own unique strengths and developing the sustainability of a positive mindset. Moreover, our team will continue to evolve and incorporate new concepts, for example in applying the essences of “Design Thinking” in our trainings, alongside the innovative and attention-grabbing LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method, which remains an important tool for team alignment trainings.”
