Architectural Design of People and Dealing with Betrayal in the Motivational Training Industry with Anthony Pangilinan

By Sean Si

Who is Anthony Pangilinan? Anthony is a child of God. He is the father of five beautiful children and the husband of Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan. He is a business consultant who loves to see people transform through training, coaching, and/or counseling.He finds joy in seeing people grow from where they are now to where their potential can bring them.   Were you ever employed before doing all of these trainings/coaching/change management? At a very young age, Anthony stopped going to school because he was elected as the international president of a youth organization called AIESEC (Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales). Being elected meant he had to take up his position in Belgium. That meant he was already receiving a salary then. This led to him going on leave from his studies for two years. Anthony was never afraid of what might happen to him or his studies. He even had thoughts of not coming back. The organization offered him great opportunities if he was to stay, but Anthony felt called to finish his degree. It was a very humbling experience. From becoming the president of an international youth organization, to going back in the classroom, raising his hand to answer the professor’s questions. He finished Architecture; and although he doesn’t practice it now, he still uses the fundamentals of what he learned today. Instead of building structures, he decided on building up people. One of the most valuable lessons that Anthony picked up from Architecture is that life needs the combination of the left and right brain. He emphasizes the importance of knowing structure and design when it comes to life.   How did all of your prior experiences lead you to what you’re doing now? At one conference that Anthony attended, his team was assigned to work on a new vision statement for their organization. They recrafted the vision into: “The peace and the fulfillment of humankind’s potential.” That had to be passed by their congress and be accepted by the whole organization, which eventually did. The vision statement stayed with Anthony. From then on, he wanted to see the fulfillment of every person, institution, and society. He thought afterwards that the best and most logical way to do that is to become a consultant.   What is your average work day like? Anthony’s day starts with the Word. He has two devotions, Streams in the Desert and Utmost for His Highest. He also reads a chapter from the Old Testament and the New Testament. For him, renewing the mind and filling yourself up with wisdom is essential. As a consultant—a person that deals with the field of training and motivation— he should always be filled with insight.   However, there are days when he shows up empty, days without any wisdom to share. Before, Anthony thought that inspiration came from within, and that inspiration would be enough. But people don’t just survive by inspiration. Anthony says that humans also need impartation. There are things that you can only get from an external source. For example, since Anthony is a created thing; he needs impartation from his Creator, which is God. When he is imparted to, he’ll feel like he has an aura. His morning routine takes around 30 minutes to an hour. He is very consistent. Even his wife knows that he needs to talk to God before he talks to her. But that’s just around five times a week.   After the morning routine, he gets ready for work—which he does either in the office, or at home. Anthony does a lot of thinking and reflecting. He also tries to redesign some of his courses from time Support the show (
