These are what some of the people who I’ve helped along the way have to say about me.
While the world continues to expand on their understanding of Millennials in the workplace, Tamara not only builds the business case for the value-add of each generation, but also provides actual tools and resources to take an individual or organization to the next level. Her sessions move beyond the hyper focus of Millennials and technology, to provide meaningful tips on how to leverage all generations and their diverse approaches to being successful in the workplace.
Tamara’s innovative approach to building awareness around generational differences through current technology sets her aside from the rest. As a millennial, it’s refreshing to see a Gen X-er take innovative approaches—such as live stream online—to make her content relatable, fresh, and accessible. I’ve had the great pleasure of participating in a few of her sessions, both in person and online and she doesn’t let any of her participants walk away empty handed. Oana Amaria, Global Leadership Development Trainer, Language & Culture Worldwide
Tamara Thorpe’s Real Leadership Live training equipped me with the tools to be a successful leader. I learned much more about communication and I’ve already been able to put the lessons I’ve learned into practice. By understanding my personal style of communication in relation to those I’m conversing with, it has allowed me to adapt better and therefore communicate more effectively. Prior to the training, I thought I did a pretty good job of listening, but found I actually needed to be more engaged!
Currently, I serve as the Community Engagement Chair of the Young Professionals of Albuquerque. Tamara has done a lot for me and my fellow millennials. From teaching at one of our lunch and learns to her continual support at our events, Tamara has proven to be a tremendous resource for our membership!
Tamara is an energetic and knowledgeable speaker who keeps your attention. If you’re looking to improve any of your leadership skills, I’d definitely recommend taking one of her courses. Megan Bodenheimer, Marketing Coordinator at SunPower by Positive Energy Solar
I highly recommend Real Leadership as a way to take your leadership capabilities to the next level. It gave me new tools and insights to improve my communication and leadership ability. I found ways to help my teams crystallize a shared vision to pursue, which made it very easy for them to take on more responsibility and self-organize. Nick Williams, Co-founder of Sunport by PlugSolar
Tamara is truly a pleasure to work with! She and I started working together when I realized I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I had a great business idea, yet felt completely overwhelmed by it and didn’t know where to start. Since I didn’t know WHERE to start, I never actually did – until I started working with Tamara. I remember her telling me, “Just start! Don’t worry about the details and just DO IT.” And so I did. She helped put my business plan together, and she’s very patient and understanding throughout the process. To be honest, I wouldn’t have started my business without her guidance. If you’re in a rut and need some leadership to get you going, Tamara is your girl! Kristyn Fox, Freelance Digital Marketing Consultant
Impactful, intentional, and unifying, Tamara has an approach to facilitating unlike any other. She provided just the right touch that our school needed, and did so with such short notice. A highly attuned acumen for the needs of a crowd, Tamara asks the hot button questions and truly knows how to engage an audience, even for hours at a time. Gerald Davis II, D.D.S., M.A., Meharry College
We’re convinced that Tamara Thorpe is the most powerful force in New Mexico. A self-proclaimed millennial mentor, she has also worked with the YWCA and TEDx. If you want something done in ABQ, Tamara can get it done or tell you who else can (and teach you how to get the most out of LinkedIn while she’s at it).
