"In just an hour, Tissa helped me clearly articulate my value in one powerful sentence. It reframed how I looked for my next role, and how I saw what I've done so far.  When I came to Tissa, I was stressed about where and how to even begin. She instantly put me at ease, and through asking simple yet pointed questions, helped me distill 20+ years of experience into a clear value proposition. I've had many coaching experiences throughout my career, and Tissa really stands out as one of the best."

Eryn Logan, Senior Marketing Manager, Charles Schwab

An effective leader is a natural facilitator and coach. As a founder and CEO, I’ve managed teams for years. And, I’ve managed those teams under extreme stress. I’ve had the pleasure of  maintaining those relationships for years, as people have continued to reach out when they were in career transitions, becoming leaders or managers themselves, or simply wanted to work through difficult decisions.

 

Becoming intentional about coaching in a structured way happened very organically. After I exited my most recent company, I was facilitating leadership workshops and speaking at conferences. People would approach me afterwards for advice, or to tell me they appreciated my candid and bold perspective. They asked if I could help them navigate challenges in their own careers. I immediately had questions and wanted to dive in, to help them reframe and be introspective about those challenges. I love helping people realize they already have most of the answers. It quickly made sense to be intentional about it, and here we are!
