Krish Dhanam was born in South India where he completed his early education. After earning an MBA he migrated to America in1986. Winning a sales contest in 1990 earned him a ticket to a seminar conducted by the legendary motivator Zig Ziglar. This chance encounter would be the catalyst that shaped the next two decades as Krish joined the Ziglar Corporation in 1991 as a telemarketer and eventually became their Vice President of Global Operations.
I was blessed to interview Krish for Journey To Success Radio.
Through training, teaching and facilitating seminars all over the world, Krish launched his professional speaking career. As one of only two executive coaches personally trained by Zig Ziglar, Krish has successfully delivered his message of hope, humor and balance in over fifty countries and throughout the continental United States.
His client list is the who’s who of global enterprise and he has received accolades from some of the most distinguished organizations including The United States Army, Christian Dior, Toshiba, Hitachi, Cognizant, Apollo Hospitals, EDS, Texas Instruments, Pepsico, and Energizer Batteries.
Today he is the co-founder of a training company, managing partner in a seminar company, author of The American Dream from an Indian Heart and contributing author to the book Top Performance written by Zig Ziglar.
In the year 2008, following a calling on their heart to do something for their motherland Krish and Anila formed Mala Ministries. From Abstracts to Absolutes was published in 2011 and Hard Headed & Soft Hearted a leadership primer which is coauthored with Rick Belluzzo was released in August of 2013.

When head and heart, skill and will, and strategic formula and emotional foundation merge, leaders can excel professionally and personally, and organizational cultures become more dynamic and productive.
