You are intelligent and hard working
You aspire to create change
You relate to people and build networks
You are a high achiever
Your drive and perseverance often exhaust you and people around you
You are scared of losing what you’ve worked so hard for
Your success seems to be holding you back from creating something bigger
You feel you might have been successful by fluke and sometimes you doubt your ability to recreate it
I help people like you unlock your inner genius
What I do is what I believe. I believe that many top performers push so much to achieve success that they make it into a struggle and as a result, it keeps them from their dreams and joy in life. Their success is often admired by many but it feels like a fluke to them. That stops them from moving out of their comfort zone to reach what they are capable of as they have fear of losing what they have achieved so far. I help those people to become aware of how they created their successes, to face their fears and to discover courage and strategy to change beliefs, thoughts and behavior which does not serve them to reach their dreams and have more joy.
I help them discover that success, monetary stability, joy and mission are not mutually exclusive and can be combined. Together we develop a strategy to create those in their life
We are programmed to avoid a downside. In fact we perceive pain of a potential loss much more than the gain we receive. Loss aversion is a well known psychological concept, ie a cognitive bias: pain of losing is psychologically...
Do you notice how you speak to yourself? This week I was working with a client who is a highly accomplished leader in a large private equity fund. When you meet her, you’ll notice an air of confidence, and can-do attitude. You see we observe people’s behaviour, we do...
“the struggle with self-doubt, self-sabotage, procrastination, fear, failure and overwhelm is part of our journey…”
“…success simply brings higher quality problems.”
About Tatiana Poliakova
I spent over 20 years in intense working environments striving to achieve goals of the organizations I worked for and making them my own. I was driven and successful, excited and often passionate about my work. I had a pleasure and privilege to work with highly intelligent successful and diverse individuals… and yet in the last three years of my career I felt that something was missing and I was moving away from reaching my potential. I felt stuck and despite all external success, unhappy.
I went on the journey of discovering that sometimes what made us successful so far is what holding us back from growing further.
Now I help my clients to reach their “impossible” goals by working with them to leverage their inherent strengths, making them aware of their emotions, beliefs and thoughts that lead to those emotions. In a safe space my clients become aware of their habits and behaviours which might be now holding them back and which are still serving them on their journey to reaching their potential.
”If you stay in your comfort zone, you will never find out what you are capable of…”
What my clients say about me
During my session with Tatiana which was fascinating, she led me to several real “lightbulb” moments. Like all great coaches, she is, above all, a listener, picking up what I said, how I said it and, quite often, what I didn’t say and the realisations were all the more powerful because she guided me to make them myself rather than telling or lecturing me.

It rare that you come across standout talented coach as Tatiana. I had a pleasure of being coached by Tatiana and it was an experience that helped me to see blind spots in my perception of myself and develop a strategy to tackle my insecurities. I was particularly impressed by Tatiana’s ability to turn the case opposite direction and make me see the truth.

Great session earlier today.. It came at the perfect time for me as I’ve been thinking lots about the future and my choices so far. This gave me a very different lens and most importantly time to think. Thank you

While sitting on the lift above one of the toughest slopes in the Alps and seeing my kids expertly skiing down, I had two ways of looking at it: either getting overwhelmed by fear or being proud… I choose the later.. Not always easy…
