What is the impact you want to make?
Without fail, every leader I interact with wants to make an impact. Have you defined your impact? Do you know what you’re aiming for? Are you tapping into the resources you have within yourself to reach your aspiration?
Being intentional is critical to make the impact you desire.
The demands and possibilities for your attention are endless. It’s easy to get caught up in what everyone else asks of you and forget to stay true to yourself, to your priorities. This is why you must create intentions about how you want to show up as a leader. You are always at choice for how you want to lead and influence.
Are you ready?
to gain a new view of the choices available to you?
to make choices that will bring about the results you desire?
to be intentional about how you want to lead?
Let’s partner to illuminate new possibilities for you as a leader!
I have worked as a leader in the corporate world for 25 years. However, I wasn’t finding meaning in my work. I believed I wasn’t adding value and as soon as someone figured this out, I would be out of a job. This story defined the way I saw myself. Others saw me as a leader, but I didn’t see myself as a leader. I played small.
The truth was very different.
I was providing value – in fact, quite a lot of value. I was a trusted leader.
However, I wasn’t in the driver’s seat of my career.
I was struggling against this wrong view of myself and was blind to what was in my heart. I was reacting to what was happening around me rather than making intentional choices and move into the driver’s seat of my career.
I made several intentional choices.
I chose to see myself as someone who delivers value. I paid attention and learned that people came to me for coaching, for inspiration, for consulting, for developing others. And, these were my favorite parts of my days.
Most significantly, I chose to move into the driver’s seat of my career and became a coach, a facilitator, and a speaker.
I became an intentional leader.
My strength and great passion is bringing out the best in others. Like it did for me, choosing to lead with intention will expand your influence.
I am an illuminator.
I create partnerships – with you, with teams, with organizations – to illuminate – to illuminate what’s possible for you – to inspire you to be the most brilliant leader you can be.
I am a lifelong learner.
I am always growing and developing myself so that I can be of the greatest service to you.

Making a Difference
What clients say about their progress:
“Tamar was a thoughtful, insightful sounding board at a time when I needed to make some decisions. She listened, challenged, and provided different frameworks to help me think through what I wanted and needed to do. I wasn’t looking for someone to tell me what to do… I was looking for someone to give me ideas on how to think about my choices and that is exactly what Tamar did.”
EMILY H, VICE PRESIDENT
“Through my role, I have had the pleasure to work with Tamar as my coach for over two years.Pleasant and upbeat, she is insightful, but never pushy. She has helped me understand others, adapt my approach to them, run meetings more effectively, listen with more interest and understanding, and see my blind-spots. I appreciate what she has been able to do for me, and the trusted friend she has become.”
DAN RICKS, MD, MEDICAL DIRECTOR
“Professional coaching with Tamar has gifted me the opportunity to self-reflect in new, meaningful ways that have helped me become the kind of leader I want to be.”
GARY STONE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
“Coaching with Tamar has been instrumental as I transitioned my role to a senior level leader. Coaching at this level has raised my level of self-awareness along with having tangible outcomes and action plans. Tamar understands me personally and remembers important details over time.”
