The Bio

Based in Beijing, Enoch consults on corporate culture and organizational behaviour, focusing on leadership development, team dynamics, employee engagement, and wellbeing. Her clients consists of MNCs and mature start-ups, advising executives and entrepreneurs on implementing positive changes in internal management. Enoch’s unique approach blends the power of playfulness – creativity, innovation, stress management, and self-awareness – into her consulting and facilitation work, discerning the unconscious and emotional factors that affect decision-making and organizational culture.

 

Enoch spent seven years with HSBC in management roles, working in the bank’s London, Paris, Tokyo, and Beijing offices. In 2010, she experienced a period of physical illness and clinical depression. Through this challenging time she rediscovered her creativity through writing and playfulness, and pursued her passion in organizational psychology. Subsequently, she completed an Executive Masters in Coaching and Consulting for Change (with Distinction) at INSEAD, and thereafter set up her consultancy, Bearapy, to help businesses and individuals incorporate play into their work and lives for higher productivity and results. Her research continues in the psychology of playfulness, and the impact of psycholanalytic object relations in organizations, particularly with personalization of workspaces.
