Executive Coach Jerry Fu Jerry Fu BioPic 2024

Jerry’s key qualities are being resourceful, insightful, and professional. Clients can count on him for thought-provoking questions, useful frameworks, and relevant stories. He loves to establish environments where clients can remove pretenses, uncover key challenges, generate ideas, and design their own solutions. His clients enjoy the process as much as the outcomes as he sets them up for success.

Coaching Philosophy

Jerry believes clients are creative, resourceful, and whole. Seeing himself as a catalyst instead of the hero, Jerry enjoys asking questions to help his clients generate awareness, discover insights, and take specific actions.

Jerry understands the balance between challenging and supporting his clients during their sessions together, providing a safe psychological space where discomfort is okay. His sessions can involve a lot of improvisation, dancing in the moment as he helps clients forward the action.

Results Achieved

A newly hired software engineer struggled with establishing credibility among his team, wondering what it would take for them to take him and his thoughts more seriously. Over the next three to four months, he realized that any technical competence he demonstrated didn’t matter until he developed a genuine interest in getting to know his teammates and setting them up for success through serving them. He realized he needed more empathy and curiosity, and that influential leadership wasn’t about what he wanted them to do. Rather, it was about motivating his team well so they could celebrate results together.

“Jerry coached me by challenging my biases on reluctance to share and delegate to others. He helped me to build awareness on where those came from. He provided great frameworks, book suggestions, and personal examples to elaborate on. I now have better self-awareness and different perspectives on how things can be. I am also practically following the actions and making improvements. The best part about working with Jerry: He has a long list of relevant books in his mind!”
