MISSION

JOSEPHINE PL ONG 

DIRECTOR/TRAINER/COACH

Everyone has their own life story.


And what will go wrong, will somehow go wrong.


So here goes …


R&D Education and Training Services was set-up in 2009 when I realised that I needed more career flexibility and dynamism while balancing the different roles as a full-time working hands-on mother.  It was also then that I decided that it was the right time to start building my dream – enjoying both success and significance in life.


Following a painful and helpless loss of my precious twin son, Dylan, and (yes!) an unforeseen breast cancer scare, I realised that I had to bring forward my dream of leaving a successful legacy, especially for my surviving twin son, Ryan, and the people around me.


Everything and anything else didn’t matter anymore except to have the chance to live just one more day to bring meaning, desire and inspiration to as many as I can. 


Using realistic, structured and practical strategies such as sharing real-life success stories of ordinary and humble characters, I help people see themselves in a positive light, building on their unique strengths and competencies while coping and managing day-to-day challenges at different life stages.


So, will I have a happy ending?  I sure HOPE so, but I do KNOW that the journey to the end will be well-served and spent, and it is my best hope that your life story turns for the better from today on.


Let me help you re-write your life story.

20 Best Advice All Parents Want To Give

MOTIVATIONAL MESSAGES IN A SNACK BOX

100 best snippets of encouragement for kids
Available at www.amazon.com

In this book, I have shared snippets of motivational messages to my young son by writing and placing them in his snack box. I have found this to be an effective "quiet voice" to encourage him when the going gets tough on topics such as friendship, hard work, forgiveness, future planning, having hope and how to behave when we are misunderstood. 

After doing this for a period of time, I have picked out my 100 favourite ones to share with you so that you can use them to motivate and encourage your precious child and teenager, too.

I LOVE YOU MUMMY BUT WHY CAN'T YOU STOP USING THE PHONE?

A solution-focused approach to modern-day habits
Available at www.amazon.com

Modern-day habits such as excessive screen-time can also affect parents.  Before, there is so much content on children over-using their digital devices and the harmful consequences of their prolonged use.  However, children aren’t the only ones who fall prey to this bad habit. 

This book helps to create awareness how parent-child relationships can deteriorate from excessive screen-time use because of a “disengaging” parenting style.  It also provides a solution-focused approach on how to overcome and take actions by replacing this habit with a good one.


A great conversation generation for both parent and child, as well as teachers, counsellors, mentors and coaches who work closely with children, teenagers and their families.

I love you mummy but why can't you stop

LET IT GO PARENTING

Coaching Your Children To Success and Happiness
Available at www.amazon.com

Parenting, one of the toughest jobs ever.  Having children doesn’t automatically make you “qualified” to be a good parent.  There must be tons of burning questions most parents have and often we are hounded by this question – are children a blessing or a curse?  


This book talks about how we can realign our perspectives, take a step back and see things differently.  So what if our children don't score an A in school?  Shouldn’t we focus on what really matters than just academic scores? 


It is my greatest hope that with this book, we will begin to have more confidence in our children and coach them to success and happiness all the way to adulthood.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IN THE MAKING

Essential Grooming, Etiquette, Manners and Social Skills for All
Available at www.amazon.com

Building a positive image can be a great booster to your self-confidence.  It also helps to create and maintain your personal brand.  You’ll need to decide how you want others to perceive you, otherwise they’ll create their own perceptions of you which sometimes may not be the best idea.

Your personal branding must be consistent and authentic, however as you progress with life, you’ll continue to update and change your brand as well. 


This book helps you recognize what makes you unique and to help you put it altogether. A great self-starter for those who want a fundamental knowledge of grooming, etiquette, manners and social skills, an excellent gift for interns, new hires and people entering the workforce, as well as conversation generation for young people as part of character, leadership and relationship training.

BUILDING HOPE, REBUILDING DREAMS

Lesson learned from the Circuit Breaker
Available as e-version from author

The Covid-19 pandemic surprised the world in the beginning of 2020, catching many of us unaware and unprepared to deal with the sudden changes in lifestyle, family life and work practices.  

This book was a result of hoping to remember what life was like for us during this pandemic.  Something that I can read about a few years later and vividly recall the memories of our “new normal” and Circuit Breaker lifestyle.  A book that even my kid’s kids and grandkids can read about, leaving a legacy for them to know that it is possible to overcome the seemingly impossible.


A great conversation starter for classroom discussions and group workshops for character building, leadership development and understanding relationships.

Grooming effective leaders and difference makers of tomorrow

However, as young as their tender minds are, they are only able to do so if only they knew how to and are equiped with adequate and appropriate skills, knowledge and attitudes.

Participants will also learn how to aspire to greater heights, begin to take action for their own successes and happiness, apply various approaches of problem-solving, critical thinking and solution-focused techniques to help them through the challenges they face through their course of life.
