Today's volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world has created a fiercely competitive environment that often cares more about results than people. 

I care deeply about both !

Hi, I'm Girish Karnad, a certified and experienced life and business coach who understands the challenges of balancing work, life, emotions and relationships in today's professional world.

As a senior professional, I had the opportunity to lead a multitude of functions including Talent Acquisition, HR, Work Force Management, Administration, Procurement, Logistics and IT Customer Support. 

My career spanning three and a half decades includes stints in large Global and Indian Multinational companies such as Samsung, IBM, Tech Mahindra, WNS Global, Patni and Mastek. I am currently a Director on the Board of SVC Co-operative Bank, mentoring the Bank in the areas of IT, HR and Administration.


My penchant to take on challenges and do things differently often landed me the most difficult of assignments. I managed not to disappoint my employers who firmly believed that they could give me anything and expect a highly professional outcome. 

As a leader I have focused on partnering with stakeholders to provide exemplary service, using technology and agile processes. I have used analytics extensively for making business decisions and improving productivity. My process and project management approach has contributed largely towards solving complex problems.

Work and life has given me some amazing opportunities. But it has not been smooth sailing all the way. The high pressure, high stakes global roles threw challenges that impacted my performance, relationships and happiness. I was fortunate to have received guidance from a leader very early in my career, who coached me in the principles of success, thereby significantly impacting all areas of my life. He was not only a manager, but a coach, guide, mentor and friend. 

Since then I have coached, guided and supported innumerable professionals - including managers, executives and leaders in making small, but significant changes which have created transformational results. 

Learning has always been a part of my life.  I did my graduation from BITS, Pilani with a BE(Hons.) Electrical and Electronics degree and also hold a Post Graduate degree in HR from NMIMS. My continuous urge to learn has earned me a plethora of certifications, which include advanced training and certification in Professional Life & Business coaching through Transformation Academy, a leading organization in coach training programs.  

My greatest passion is supporting managers, executives and leaders to achieve their highest performance goals while enjoying better relationships, wellness and life balance. 

What would you be able to achieve with the right kind of coaching?
