“CWC is a premiere coaching and advising firm” – Business Insider

A new blueprint for

Loving Monday’s Again

Here’s why the employer-employee dynamic is off track . . .

Problem #1

For employers to stay in business and grow, they need:

  • High-caliber teams who will work hard
  • Adaptability to headwinds and opportunities
  • Continuous revenue and profitability growth

Problem #2

For employees to thrive and support their lifestyle, they need:

  • Work that is interesting and will make an impact
  • Flexibility to be effective in a way that is unique to them
  • Fair compensation and recognition for their contributions

End result

Two groups who want the same thing end up in disarray.

  • Lack of alignment: Both groups approach the same problem from opposite viewpoints.
  • Inability to disrupt business as usual: Without disruption, nothing can change.
  • Failed opportunity to thrive: Leaders and employees are reluctant to embrace a CEO mindset.

Escape the career trap 

 

Transform Apathy into Ambition and Never Hate Mondays Again

ALIGN

Your vision

Individual aspirations and corporate goals are often out of alignment. Help your teams create their career success blueprint by clarifying their vision and strategy, playing to their strengths, and gaining control over the fears that hold them back.

DISRUPT

Business as usual

Empowered team members with a clear vision become an unstoppable force. When employees become the CEOs of their careers and treat their careers like a business, everything improves. This mindset shift creates better decision-making, stronger relationships, and leveraging their edge for the company’s benefit.

THRIVE

Make a big impact

Leading through uncertainty and paving the way for others takes courage and teamwork. Harnessing the collective organization’s resilience and innovative spirit will transform chaos into opportunity, panic into planning, and disconnected thinking into a unified organization focused on success.

Hi!  I'm Tammy.

My entire career in and around Wall Street was fueled by equal parts of unbridled ambition and inferiority that stemmed from my family becoming homeless when I was 15. I didn’t go to college until I was 40, and I often found myself as the only female and the youngest leadership team member. Because of my history, I wasn’t afraid of failure and saw obstacles as opportunities. I didn’t know any better, so I took big risks, challenged the status quo, and played like I had nothing to lose.

It took me decades to realize that…

I WASN’T LIKE THE OTHERS.

And that being different wasn’t my Achilles' heel; it was my superpower.

I saw my team members feel trapped by fear and uncertainty. As a leader, I experienced the frustration of seeing top talent sidelined because they were waiting for the company to do something instead of owning their careers and taking action. I saw leaders paralyzed because of an unhealthy relationship between success and failure and have yet to see anyone truly achieve a balance between accountability and empowerment. I knew there was a better way, and I led differently. At the time, I didn’t realize I was creating a better way to navigate careers and deliver epic business results. Career fulfillment and business success are indelibly linked. Create an environment where career fulfillment is the norm, and you’ll see your business results soar.

Today, I help organizations clear the apathetic haze that has invaded their culture and show their team members how to awaken their ambition and thrive as they become the CEOs of their careers and make a big impact again.

Tammy is clear-headed, funny, and strategic. She has had a significant positive impact on my life and my business.
