"Gwen has a gift for asking great questions that helped me gain clarity and create the steps I needed in order for me to take action towards my goals. I felt in control of each session and trusted Gwen to guide me towards my own solutions."— Mary Omberg, Entrepreneur
Hi, I'm Gwen, Founder and Chief Clarity Officer of Gwen Krilova Coaching, a leadership development and coaching company, headquartered in San Diego, providing business coaching dedicated to helping working women.
From childhood to early in my professional career, I can remember what it felt like to suppress my voice, to feel trapped inside, yearning to be heard and valued, not knowing how to ‘Step Up and Stand Out’ for myself.
The wounds of my environment created a lot of self-limiting beliefs I carried like an overstuffed suitcase as I traveled to each new destination. My baggage continued to get heavier and heavier. I realized I was meant for so much more and craved to find the voice I knew was inside me.
Through many years of self-discovery, education, coaching and growth; I finally learned how to let go of the baggage I carried. Today, I proudly 'Step Up and Stand Out' with clarity and confidence.
The woman I’ve become is proof that the past does not have to be a predictor of the future. Every moment describes who we are AND gives us the opportunity to decide if that’s who we want to be. I am passionate about helping women get what they want and deserve so they can have fulfilled careers and lead joyful lives.
Before becoming a coach, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and spent many years in both large and small corporations in careers that included software development, hardware/software technology sales, professional services, financial services and women's fashion apparel.
I'm a Certified Professional Coach and Energy Leadership Index-Master Practitioner. I trained at iPEC (Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching). iPEC is a fully accredited program by International Coach Federation (ICF).
"Hands down, the best part of working with Gwen is her empathetic and warm personality. Gwen is magnetic and a source of light for women seeking guidance on personal growth and professional advancement. She has a very caring and compassionate approach to her coaching-style, particularly as it relates to the advancement of women. She truly inspires and gets those around her motivated. Anyone working with Gwen will be a better person for it! Gwen is a gem!”

WHY HAVE A COACH?
Think of it this way. How many professional athletes do you know that go it alone? Probably none. In fact, when an athlete decides that they are going to ‘go for it’, it’s never a question of IF they need a coach, it’s simply a question of WHO will be their coach. Top performing athletes have a coach that inspires them, keeps them laser focused and creates accountability. One-on-one coaching for top performing leaders, entrepreneurs and solopreneurs provides the exact same thing.
The particular approach that will be used during our time together is called Core Energy (TM) Coaching and it operates on the understanding that the challenges you face are often symptoms of an underlying cause. By only tackling the symptoms, you might be able to modify your actions in the short-term, but this approach fails to provide meaningful, long-term solutions. We will get to your core, which means you’ll soon be able to better connect your inner purpose, values and passion to your outward goals and strategies – zeroing in on what you really want and breaking through what’s holding you back.
Our partnership will begin with a unique assessment that is used to gain valuable insight into your perceptions and attitude towards the world, situations and those around you, as well as greater insight into how you think, feel and act. The debrief I provide after the assessment will highlight your strengths, what’s holding you back and ultimately enhance your emotional intelligence.
"At the end of each session, I felt confident and energized with a plan of action. I can say 6 months later, I achieved my financial goals with my business, and have begun to set roots and make connections in my new town - exactly what I wanted!"

“My coaching sessions with Gwen have been extremely valuable. I was moving 600 miles away from my support system and my client base. I needed to work through how to make that move successful, both personally and professionally. Gwen has a gift for asking great questions that helped me gain clarity and create the steps I needed in order for me to take action towards my goals. I felt in control of each session and trusted Gwen to guide me towards my own solutions. At the end of each session, I felt confident and energized with a plan of action.
