During her tenure at the Civil Service College, she helped to form the Centre for Leadership Development, and last held the position of Director and Senior Principal Consultant in the Institute of Leadership and Organisation Development.

Ee-Ling has extensive experience in designing and facilitating highly bespoke leadership development programmes and interventions, and providing leadership feedback and coaching to leaders at all various levels, from high-potential emerging leaders, first-line managers and middle-managers, to those holding functional leadership or apex-level leadership positions. As a leadership coach and facilitator, Ee-Ling emphasises dialogic processes that promote deeper personal, interpersonal and contextual insight and understanding, and her style is challenging yet supportive. She has a strong interest in helping individuals and teams focus their developmental efforts in a way that translates into sustainable and meaningful change and is inspired by the vision of purpose-driven organisations where the human spirit can flourish. Her current professional interest lies in the area of leadership resilience and agility in a world of complexity and relentless change.
