[Recap] Called to Coach: India Edition – Murali Krishnan

On a recent Called to Coach: India Edition, we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach Murali Krishnan.

Murali first took the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment while working at a previous job. He says as soon as he saw his top five strengths, he was astonished at how accurately they described him.



As a Level Two cricket coach, Murali has a knack for coaching, but wanted to expand his coaching repertoire into the realm of personal development through strengths. In early 2014, Murali attended the Accelerated Strengths Coaching course in India, becoming one of the first Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches in the country.

Murali says that people will occasionally come to him for strengths coaching and tell him they want to learn more about their weaknesses. He immediately interjects, explaining that although they should be aware of their weaknesses, they must not dwell on them. The whole philosophy around strengths-based development is that by focusing on your natural talents, you will achieve far more success than by trying to hone in on your weaknesses.

To hear more about Murali and his coaching experiences and expertise, watch the full video above.

Murali is an Australian of Indian origin and has more than 25 years of professionally rewarding experience in the IT industry. He is also a Level Two certified cricket coach from Australia, bringing sports values into aspects of work and coaching.
