Richard McClellan Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh
Executive Coach, Business Coach, Life Coach
Progress, professional or otherwise, hinges on embracing paradoxes and seeking improved balance amongst them: independence vs. dependence, working vs. living, leading vs. serving, deciding vs. collaborating, innovating vs. delivering, determinism vs. opportunism, empathizing vs. directing. Skilled leaders don’t see these mindsets at odds with each other, but rather as a portfolio of mindsets to be tailored and deployed to meet the needs of specific contexts. Rich aims to help leaders be more introspective about their styles, their effectiveness, and their personal happiness—and to imagine and design an expanded skillset proactively through an inquisitive dialog.
Richard has more than 20 years’ experience in strategy and policy advisory, including significant leadership experience in strategic planning, organizational design and change, and ensuring delivery. He has led teams in dozens of countries and advised a range of senior stakeholders, including government officials, corporate leaders, and multilateral decision-makers.
Rich spent 8 years at McKinsey & Co, based out of their Midwest US, Middle East, and Southeast Asian offices. He also spent 3 years leading policy advisory teams in Kazakhstan, Haiti, and Viet Nam under former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Rich and his family live in Vietnam, where he works with both public and private sector clients, as well as the international development community.
For the last five years, Rich has complemented his strategy practice by working with a select number of individuals as an executive coach and personal advisor, finding personal satisfaction in the individual connections.
Rich received a degree in English Literature from Brigham Young University and his MBA with emphases in strategy and policy from Weatherhead (CWRU). He attended both schools on full-ride scholarships and graduated at the top of both classes; he is an Eagle Scout.
