I am an executive leadership coach and career strategist... with over a decade of experience helping individuals step into their greatness and discover the leader within; and author of Careering: The Pocket Guide to Exploring Your Future Career (Morgan James Publishing, New York, NY, 2017).
As a leadership coach and career strategist, I work with both organizations and individuals from a range of industries to nurture and create leaders. My goal is to help individuals lean into their talents to achieve their goals and make a difference in the world.
I’m here to assist you with self-awareness/empowerment; interpersonal communication; and professional performance improvement. I also provide performance-enhancing guidance to executives, to help them excel and become more efficient.
I live and thrive in the space of supporting individuals to merge personal interests and skills. I developed my signature coaching process from both personal/professional experience and research. Through numerous workshops, readings and insights gained, I have emerged as a catalyst for others on their leadership journeys.
My mission extends to teens, as well. The goal of my book is to provide the youngest, emerging leaders in the U.S. and around the globe with tools to develop themselves as leaders; so that they align their passions with possible career paths and create ways to positively contribute to society while earning a living.
The Careering mini “workbook” also provides teens with a plan of accountability and responsibility, as they figure out their college and career path. To date, the book has been positively received by educators, guidance counselors, parents and students; and has earned several recognitions that include #1 new release in career counseling and #1 in vocational guidance for youth.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a Minor in International Relations, from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. I also received a Master of Arts in Organizational Sciences, with a concentration in Management, and Graduate Certificate for Leadership Coaching both from George Washington University. In addition, I am certified in The Birkman Method®, a leading behavioral and personality assessment.
I am proof that figuring out the right career path leads to success and happiness. I want to help YOU achieve the same result in your career, no matter where you are. The only requirement is that you should want to make a difference in the world and develop yourself to reach your goals.
If that’s you, you’ve come to the right place. I can’t wait to meet you.
What is my typical process for working with a new client?
I begin every engagement with a client intake to become familiar with your needs and goals. Contact me to schedule your first session. Should we decide to partner on your coaching engagement, I will request that you take the Birkman assessment before our first session, for which I will send you a link after payment.
What credentials do I have for my specialty/specialties?
I have a Master of Arts in Organizational Sciences and Graduate Certificate in Leadership Coaching from The George Washington University; and certification in The Birkman Method®. In addition, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a Minor in International Relations, from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, in 2002.
What types of patients have I worked with?
I have partnered with and/or mentored a diverse range of clients, from business owners, employees, executives, and corporate teams; to adults, students and young leaders. These clients span a wide array of industries at all organizational levels, including accounting; art and interior design; coaching; education; engineering; finance; human resources; industrial and utility services; non-profit; and IT, to name a few.
In 2017, I decided to focus my passion for coaching, mentoring and empowering youth with the release of the book, Careering: The Pocket Guide to Exploring Your Future Career. My goal is to bring my knowledge, insight and approach to helping youth and young adults excel both academically and in their chosen profession, through awareness of their goals, interests, and talents in a purposeful and focused way.
"In just a few sessions, Tamara was able to guide me in understanding what within me truly spoke to being a leader, - without my realizing how deeply impactful the work was!, I feel well-equipped with ‘tools’ I can turn to and use if and when needed to get me back to that empowered place of leadership. Thank you so much, Tamara, for helping me find my power and giving it back to me!" - Shaz A.
“I’ve found her to be intelligent, honest and innovative. Most importantly for me is Tamara’s inner-drive and commitment to seeing her clients succeed in the most genuine and positive of ways!” - Susan G.
