The opportunity for direct sales professionals to elevate their success and help others find sustainable happiness and success through the medium have NEVER been more abundant.

The Leader You Came to Be.
Learn the secrets to personal and professional growth, engaged teams and employee retention.

Authentic leadership is the key to driving results, making a measurable impact and creating camaraderie. Authentic leaders are self-actualized individuals who are aware of their strengths, their limitations, and their emotions. They also display their real selves to their followers. Communities rally around authentic leaders who are confident in their vision and purpose. But how do leaders empower their teams to grow, change and evolve within an organization?

Finding balance between career, family and community continues to be a struggle for the workforce, especially for working mothers. The COVID19 crisis has illuminated the struggles to prioritize family and career. Challenges in balancing career and family often result in feelings of exhaustion, inadequacy, guilt, and unhappiness.

Living our purpose, balancing career and home and living happy are three priorities among the workforce. In response to these situations, professionals ask themselves many questions:
How do I make an impact and grow within the organization
How do I find my purpose at work and home?

How do I become the best version of myself?
How do I create sustainable happiness?

Unstuck
Elevate your Emotional Intelligence to listen up, speak up, show up, and level up. The attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs to level up your success and get what you want.

Often in our career and life we feel “stuck”. Stuck in a job. Stuck in a relationship. Stuck in fear. Stuck in complacency. Stuck in uncertainty. There is a gap between where we are and what we truly want. It’s not easy to speak up, show up and level up, so we find ourselves playing small, settling for less than what we want and what we deserve. And often we find our self-limiting beliefs causing us to play small.
In “Unstuck”, Tara uncovers the 6 key emotional intelligence traits and characteristics that allow you to listen up, speak up, show up and get what you want.

Based on the Bar-On EQ-i model by Reuven Bar-On Tara takes a deep dive into these 6 contrary characteristics that professionals need to deploy to unlock higher levels of success and fulfillment in life. Elevated EQ allows leaders to bridge generation gaps, increase revenue/productivity, and creates a culture for diverse and independent workers and cohesive teams to thrive.

Experience Objectives:
Ignite your confidence and authenticity to listen up, speak up and show up.
Deploy simple tactics to be independent and adaptive to fuel your leadership and drive outcomes.
Discover your unconscious symptoms of being stuck and strategies to get and stay unstuck.
Develop a system for setting optimistic and realistic goals and expectations for your life.
Learn how to ignite the perfect balance of empathy and assertiveness to navigate change, conflict and difficult situations.
Gain clarity on the 6 contrary-complimentary attributes and skills needed to level up your success and fulfillment.
Understand your self-limiting attitudes, behaviors and beliefs to cause and keep you stuck in areas of your life.
“Unstuck” can be customized for workshops and teams. Tara offers individual and group EQ-i assessments that can be combined half-full day workshops. During these workshops Tara takes the audience through a deeper dive into emotional intelligence, team building activities and individual assessments to create lasting and sustainable organizational change.

"We hired Tara in the spring to do a virtual presentation to a group of top leaders. Her message of "be who you came to be" was so well received, we hired her again to speak at our national conference. I have spent 30 years in this industry and heard a lot of speakers and I would have to rate her as one of the best I've heard. Her message was tailored to our audience, she was engaging, thought-provoking, and professional. Our surveys were over the top in their rating of her talk; they wanted more Tara! I would highly recommend her if you are looking to inspire, motivate and generally spark your audience."
