People Development Solutions
I help organizations develop crucial competencies and leverage learning experiences so they can build positive leaders, energize employee engagement, turn customers to evangelist, and accelerate business growth.
01: Promote Personal Excellence
YOU WANT SOMETHING MORE POWERFUL THAN MOTIVATIONAL SPEECHES.
If you were like my clients, you are here because you are looking for the best for your organization.
You know that positive mental attitude can help but will not get you very far. After an excellent and dynamic speech delivery, very highly motivated employees still have no clue on what to do next.
If you were like my clients, you want your personal development speaker to engage audiences so they start using vital behaviors. Vital behaviors are your lead measures to achieve your business goals.
You want behavioral change that sticks.
You want results you can optimize and scale.
You want employees to develop personal sense of urgency and accountability.
You want employees to gain confidence and competence to achieve their big hairy audacious goals.
Below are descriptions of some the most requested themes on personal development. You follow the link so you'll learn more. Then, fill in the contact form so we can start working together.
Dare, Dream, and Do. Reinvent your future. Map your own destiny. I know that it is more difficult for most people to achieve anything significant. There are very few lucky ones who happen to be in the right place at the right time.
Many of us have accepted our fate. They stopped trying. They quit dreaming. They don't want to fail so they won't start anything.
You don't deserve a mediocre life. Dare, dream, and do are simple steps that can bring to your most inspired life.
02: MAKE ACHIEVEMENT YOUR HABIT
Be the master of your habits. Most people are slave to habits that they find themselves helpless and unable to change anything. I believe you can cultivate achieve things that matter in your life when you make achievement a habit.
02: Inspire and amplify leadership
Create Eureka moments. Hear stories that teach, inspire, and change. Discover 10x strategies and learn new tools that you can apply immediately to lead, equip, and engage others.
I am a professional speaker on motivation, teamwork, personal development, leadership, and innovation.
03: Train and develop leaders.
Reinvent leadership learning experiences. Go beyond traditional classroom training. Design leadership training programs so your leaders can develop the skills and behaviors your organization needs.
Below are some of the leadership training programs designed and delivered by Jef Menguin.
Leadership Challenge 2.0 Workshop
This leadership training program is inspired by the work of Kouzes and Posner. The workshops will equip leaders on how to 1) model the way, 2) inspire a shared vision, 3) challenge the process, 4) enable others to act, and 5) encourage the heart. The Program can be conducted for three days.
Four Disciplines of Execution Workshop
This leadership training program will help leaders get things done. This is inspired by the 4 Disciplines of Execution of Jim Huling and Execution by Ram Charan. The workshop can be customized to the needs of your organization. Execution Excellence considers the context of Filipino workplace.
The Engaging Leadership Workshop
Leaders initiate, lead, and sustain organizational change. The Engaging Leader Workshop is used the Influencer Model and principles of appreciative leadership. This is a two-day leadership workshop that provide your supervisors and managers the tools they need to use the six sources of influence and other tools that will make them engaging leaders.
04: Build High Impact Teams
Laugh, sing, dance, run, and play. Solve problems together. Bond and build camaraderie. Collaborate and communicate better. Learn new attitudes. Acquire useful knowledge and team skills. Have fun and grow as a team.
Experience all these and more in the team building sessions I design for organizations.

06: Reinvent Workplace Learning Experiences
Imagine a classroom training where everyone is engaged. They play. They compete, then collaborate. They speak, they produce ideas, create new products, improve customer experiences, come up with prototypes, and validate learning.
Same-same traditional training cannot bring you to the future. You've got to reinvent training and design new learning experiences.
07: Start Competency Development
What if every employee works according to performance profiles and every leader observe the four disciplines of execution? What if your people development is based on your own competency model and strategy - and not a product of trial-and-error or on what's hot in the market?
I can help you define your competency strategy, model, and implementation.
About Jef Menguin
Bio Sketch of Jef Menguin
Jef Menguin is a family man who tries to always observe his Christian faith in his business practices.
In 2004, against the advice of his family and well-meaning friends, he decided to leave the job of a high school teacher and college instructor. He was in the academe for almost ten years.
He repurposed his calling to serve others.
He started as a professional speaker and eventually expanded his services to corporate training and leadership consulting.
Because he came from the teaching profession, his first target clients were teachers and students. He failed to get paying clients for the first eight months. So his family and friends persuaded him to delay, if not to stop, his dream of becoming a professional speaker.
He was stubborn.
His turn-around happened when he delivered another “free” ten-minute speech to 30 employees of a company whose advocacy was to equip public school principals. After the speech, he was invited to train 300 school principals on educational leadership. He was paid 15,000 pesos for each day of training. He knew then that he would not be begging for clients again.
The opportunities to speak beyond the education sector suddenly opened. As people learned about his ability to provide actionable ideas to leaders, people who heard him talk and those who read his blog posts started contacting him. Some of his first paying clients were Meralco, PLDT, Petron, Asian Development Bank, US Embassy, and a dozen of small companies.
Since 2009, he's been delivering at least 30 speeches each year, on top of his corporate training engagements.
In 2010, he started speaking and training in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Thailand. He has also developed thousands of leaders in almost every city and every province in the Philippines. His experiences working with companies big and small eventually developed him into an entrepreneur whose business is to help develop leaders and engage employees so organizations will succeed.
All his works, including this website, aim to build a better nation by building positive leaders and highly competent people.
People Development Businesses
In 2011, he began to wonder whether he could apply tools in user experience design to workplace learning design. He designed tools (and re-imagined Design Thinking tools) so he could help organizations accelerate learning. He started training other trainers and he became known as "trainer of trainers" and mentor of leaders.
He also founded Starfisher Asia, a people development company, which served hundreds of clients until May 2016.
He was the president of Compass Center for Leadership, Management and Governance for more than a year. After working for more than 12 hours a day and driving 4 hours of driving to and from work, he decided to do things again his way. His experiences in CCLMG challenged him to think of strategic ways to fulfil his vocational dreams without having to sacrifice his personal dreams.
Jef Menguin wants to help Filipinos build a prosperous, peaceful, and positive nation. This is why he help organizations build leaders. This is why he provides employees tools to help them achieve their goals in life.
Using his unique ability to equip people and bring good people together, Jef Menguin aspires to (1) bring experts together in a leadership consulting company to offer fast, inexpensive, relevant, and engaging solutions, (2) build a community of young entrepreneurs who are financially intelligent and who can provide financial education to others, and (3) be a farmer.
- Find God's Kingdom and His righteousness.
- A family that values relationship, that prospered in whatever they do, and that serves others.
- See the world and its wonders.
- Be happy and wealthy.
Jef Menguin happily resides in Los Banos, Laguna together with his wife Romelyn and their son, Jefferson Carlos.
