Mikhail Klarin

Coaching Speciality

My coaching focus is on supporting Leaders (individuals and/or groups) and Executive Teams. I help people meet executive challenges including situations of transition (corporate and/or personal). I am very sensitive to both personality-based and X-cultural factors influencing leaders' life and performance. I combine expertise of an executive coach and that of an organizational consultant. This helps in taking 3D view of corporate and business reality.

I am a recognized opinion leader in business/corporate coaching industry. According to a recent national HR survey, I am ranked in top five business team builders of Russia in the decade of 2004-2014. 

I also work as Leading Researcher at the Institute for Strategy of Education Development, Russian Academy of Education; Professor at Project Management Department, Management Institute, Moscow City Pedagogical University; Chair, Association of Russian-speaking Coaches; Board Director, The Great Russian Encyclopedia.

Story

I started executive coaching work after year of working with executive teams as an organizational consultant and strategic facilitator. My own experience in and with companies turned into a great resource for coaching executives, and business owners. I like working with challenges. CEO's challenges are reflected in the challenges for my coaching support.

Coaching Approach

I carefully listen for hidden messages, give ‘talk turkey’/frank feedback, provoke insightful discussions leading to awareness, planning, and action. I use feedback coaching to add value to my clients. I combine rational analytic approach with embodied work, so that a CEO may use the discovered 'tips' on their fingertips.
