Mastering the Turbulence of Organizational Change


George Klavens has a masterful way of approaching the difficult issues that business executives face. His extensive experience with organizations of various sizes, along with his years of practice in psychiatry, give him a unique capacity to coach individuals and enable him to help clients navigate and master the inevitable turbulence of organizational change.

Executive Coaching Experience

As the Chief Operating Officer of an early stage technology development company, I was taken by surprise when recently confronted with a move by outside Directors to promote me to Chief Executive Officer at the expense of the Founder. George was able to guide me, as I evaluated my own hesitation, and help me sort out the motivations, for good and bad, of various players. We were then able to plan and execute an approach to the issue, which ultimately benefited me and the founder, as well as advancing the goals of the entire company. He helped me turn a big problem into a great opportunity. Many coaches are very good at one facet of these problems but few can handle these multi-dimensional problems with the aplomb of George Klavens.

Moreover, George is an invaluable collaborator when I need to think through business decisions involving setting priorities, allocating resources, and vetting potential investors and partners. He helps me clarify my thinking leading to sound decisions and beneficial outcomes. George has introduced me to interested parties, which might result in the international expansion of my company. I could not expect more of a coach, and I have come to value George as a friend, colleague and partner in my exciting adventure.
