Claire Jung

strategic partner


Claire’s sense of adventure has driven her to constantly challenge her limits in a banking career which spans almost two decades.  She has held a variety of regional management roles across compliance, learning & development and leadership coaching.

Claire was most recently at The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) Hong Kong where she was the Lead Coach and Performance Excellence Consultant for Asia Pacific responsible for supporting leaders build high-performing teams through the bank’s global leadership programme. Prior to that, Claire was Head of Compliance for RBS Hong Kong and was previously at Macquarie Bank, Morgan Stanley and the London Stock Exchange.

A Brit living in Hong Kong and married to a Korean, Claire understands that an ability to understand and shape our habits can allow us to thrive in diverse environments.

Coaching is where Claire now focuses her energy.  She helps leaders break down challenges and build up small but significant habits that lead to greatness at work and in life.

No matter who she is working with, her approach is guided by three beliefs; the power of habit; happiness in life leads to success at work; and real change involves discomfort.

Claire is a Certified Coach (ICF ACC) and Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioner, and she has coached executives at The Royal Bank of Scotland, Standard Chartered Bank, MUFG and Medidata, among other multinational companies.

Claire is an active member of the Hong Kong International Coaching Community (HKICC) and International Coach Federation (ICF).


I benefited immensely from having Claire Jung as my coach. She introduced new habits to revamp my operating model in management and I gained new insights in task management and coaching. She guided me through tumultuous periods at work by giving me the much needed assurance and confidence.

I found coaching a very rewarding experience with Claire. We discussed ways to tackle difficult problems, meet work goals and make achievable medium term plans. I found her coaching inspired me to take action and always enjoyed my sessions with her. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a coach.

"As a coach, Claire helped establish trust in the first session which enabled to make the whole program more effective. She helped me institute processes to work on my development areas. I always found her to be a powerful coach often forcing me to think about things in a different but very simple manner. That meant challenging and difficult conversations at times but always fruitful. Thanks Claire!”

Claire was very knowledgeable, explained the format well and used great examples to enable the team to fully understand. Claire is a professional, very articulate and as a result of the training and coaching she delivered, my team have really gained a lot of value by understanding how each other work/operate and their ‘style preferences’ and as such this had a great impact on creating new habits within the team when dealing with each other. It was a great session, thanks again.

Claire has unique coaching skills which helped me identify personal attributes and skills which had not been known to me. She is proficient in listening, observing and asking questions to identify root cause of issues. Throughout the six months of coaching I made considerable positive changes. I would recommend Claire’s executive coaching services for any executives and senior leaders.
