Be Who You Came To Be - Create, Own & Live the Life you Deserve & Desire

In this high-energy, packed with takeaways presentation, you will learn to tap into your emotional and positive intelligence to:

  • Redefine Happiness
  • Extinguish Burnout
  • Embrace Change
  • Eliminate Comparison
  • Self-Assess to Self-Actualize
  • Lean into Fear to Take Risks
  • Achieve Higher Goals
  • Never Play Small Again
  • Elevate Your Success
  • Finding our purpose, balancing career and home and living a truly fulfilled life are three priorities for professionals.
    • In response to these situations, we ask ourselves many questions, including:

      How do I make an impact?
      How do I find my purpose?
      How do I create sustainable happiness?
      How can I be successful at work and at home?
      How can I eliminate comparisons and embrace my authenticity?
      How do I become the best version of myself?
      How do I move through fear, take calculated risks and go all in on my life and career?

Be Who You Came to Be is a thought-provoking, inspiring, genuine and fresh approach that answers these questions and helps professionals unlock and unleash their purposes in life.

Tara takes a new and refreshing approach to help her audience find purpose and be who they came to be. Through personal experience, stories and research she walks her audience through a three-step process to "be who they came to be". She combines her 20 years of success in corporate and direct sales along with her role as a wife and mother so she can offer her audience an experience and a message that are sincere, motivating, relatable and game changing.

Get Mentally Fit - Emotional & Positive Intelligence and The Leader You Came to Be
In this keynote, you will learn to:
Elevate emotional intelligence in your teams, unlock your positive intelligence, strengthen your mind, eliminate self-doubt, and conquer your saboteurs so you can create, own and live the life you deserve and desire – at work and in the home.

Understand the role emotional intelligence plays in self-perception, employee retention, leadership development and overall employee satisfaction
Understand your personal PQ score, saboteurs and how to elevate your mindset.
Understand fulfillment vs. happiness; why fulfillment is a better gauge and driver of success and purpose within your organization
Eliminate unrealistic employee expectations created through comparisons; elevate employee authenticity to raise overall job satisfaction

Employ a system that allows employees to self-assess to self-actualize
Create a quarterly review platform that encourages employees to identify their strengths and opportunities to create a personal development bucket list
Understanding the role emotional intelligence plays in self-perception, employee retention, leadership development and overall employee satisfaction

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 navigate change or stress?
How can I be successful at work and at home?
How do I become the best version of myself?
How do I get mentally fit to stop sabotaging myself?
How do I create sustainable happiness?

Positive Intelligence represents a breakthrough in your ability to raise Emotional Intelligence (EQ) across your organization. The main challenges until now have been the existence of too many EQ competencies (18) and that initial improvements quickly fade over time. Positive Intelligence dramatically simplifies this challenge due to factor analysis research that identified the root-level building blocks of EQ. The results of this research have been validated by over 500,000 participants in 50 countries.

Increasing your mental and emotional fitness leads to less stress and more satisfaction. “Mental Fitness” is defined as your ability to understand that you are not your thoughts and that you can achieve a consistent and positive frame of mind. Strengthening your Positive Intelligence (PQ) will allow you to become the authentic leader you came to be.
Be who YOU came to be. 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?

Enter Positive Intelligence, the mastery skill of honoring, celebrating, and elevating who you came to be.
Finding balance between career, family and community continues to be a struggle for the workforce.

This keynote can be expanded into a 120 minute deep-dive workshop including everything from the keynote in more depth and the following:

A custom workbook that will be used during the workshop (attendees will use this during the workshop and leave with it. For virtual attendees a printable PDF will be available.)

Three all-team breakout sessions that include time for personal discovery, creating actionable take-aways to implement, team building and group sharing.
One individual break-out session to create a personal PQ roadmap to get and stay mentally fit.

A FREE Positive Intelligence assessment is available for all attendees to take prior to the workshop (this is highly recommended).
