Krishna Pendyala is an author and life coach with unique insights into the human condition. For over two decades, he has inspired corporate, academic, and spiritual audiences with his lectures on personal and professional growth through inner awareness.

“The Key to a Better Life is Being Aware in the Life we Live.”

Krishna Pendyala is a lifelong learner. His work as a life coach and author is grounded in more than 30 years of intense study of the human condition — through a program of rigorous self-reflection and observation of others, backed by formal learning and constant reading — and is further informed by his professional experience in a wide range of disciplines.

Born and raised in India, Krishna moved to the United States in 1984 for graduate studies, then stayed on to build a distinguished career in technology and business. After beginning his career in teaching and research, he founded two multimedia companies and developed MediaSite Live, the industry leading product for online lectures and webcasting. Since then, he has held executive leadership positions at other firms.

In the 1990s, Krishna also began speaking and leading seminars on personal growth and effectiveness. Starting with corporate audiences, he has branched into working with people in all walks of life, and into coaching individuals as well as groups. Major themes he has developed and taught include the principle of un-learning conditioned patterns of the past, the use of emotional logic, and — as seen in this book — the central role of inner awareness.

Along with independent work in these areas, Krishna’s position for the past eight years merged his passions for business and life coaching: being the Chief Operating Officer and Coach at Waldron Wealth Management. His varied interests and eclectic pursuits have led to his being quoted on topics ranging from ego awareness to biometrics. Meanwhile, he has begun his next outreach project to follow up on the publication of Beyond the PIG and the APE. The ultimate goal is creating an enlightened society where inner awareness empowers people to thrive in harmony.

Krishna Pendyala has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and a master’s in educational foundations and media technology from Indiana State University. He has attended executive management programs at Carnegie Mellon University and Harvard, the Curriculum for Living from Landmark Education, and continues to hone his coaching skills through practice, professional courses and personal study.

He is a Charter Member of TiE, the world’s largest entrepreneurial network; a National Member of the National Association for Self-Esteem; the organizer of Pittsburgh NOW, a learning community devoted to attaining peace through presence; and the founder of Discover YOU, a group focused on raising inner levels of awareness.
