“Authenticity is a collection of choices we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” Brene Brown
Tamara believes leadership starts with having a strong understanding of self and others, from where relationships based on trust are built. This is true in both local and global settings and forms the basis of the approach Tamara takes. She believes that inspirational leadership comes from within and finding your true self will open a world of possibilities.
