Vita Nostra - Coaching
Ekaterina Vilenkina

I am Executive Coach, Business Trainer and Consultant. My areas of interest include NLP, hypnosis, group behaviours and leadership. I am an ICF certified coach (PCC), Master Practitioner in NLP, Master Practitioner in Hypnosis and Mental Emotional Release. I have studied psychology in the USA, Great Britain and Russia. My previous education includes two university degrees: in linguistics and financial management.

Before becoming a coach, I have spent over 20 years in investment banking in internationally renowned companies, such as Arthur Andersen, Deutsche Bank, Renaissance Capital, HSBC in different managerial roles, which adds to my ability to understand my business clients in depth.

I currently work for leadership programs in the Skolkovo School of Management, Moscow; CEIBS (China Europe International Business School), Shanghai; and IMD Business School, Lausanne.

I also work as a consultant at Group Relations Conferences.

Group Relations Conference as a learning event aimed at showing the participants a new way of thinking and working in an organization, better understanding group dynamics and learning what are the real driving forces that make groups tick and how an individual input can change the whole setting. It differs dramatically from all the other workshops and trainings, the difference being that participants are not taught tools and techniques but rather learn through their own experience guided by consultants.

About coaching

In coaching I help my clients to:

  • Find a solution for an “insoluble” task
  • Choose the best way out of many
  • Break out from a “vicious circle”
  • Move toward your goals even when the going gets tough
  • Understand why the other person has acted this way and what to do about it
  • Understand how you “cause things happen” to you and how to change that pattern

and overall to

  • shift to a more resourceful place.

When I work on the basis of a corporate contract I fulfil the tasks agreed upon with the company’s management.
