Helen Chung, Ph.D. – Scontrino Powell, Inc.

Consultant Helen Chung


As a coach, I seek to facilitate a process that builds and deepens leadership capacity in my clients. I work with individuals, teams, and organizations to explore, identify, and design sustainable change. This process requires a commitment to learning, questioning of assumptions, trying out of new actions, and reflecting on actions taken. My coaching and consulting sessions are marked by active listening, thoughtful collaboration, and a genuine desire to see the client win.

With my background in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, I have expertise in leadership frameworks (transformational, servant, and inclusive leadership), teamĀ  dynamics, storytelling, and career transitions. I am motivated to help my clients leverage evidence-based practices to achieve their goals.
